In the future, he said, there is also a
need for more substantive environmental
programs, an end to inequities due to
race, religion, sex and economic position
and a solution to the U.S. drug problem
"which not only rehabilitates drug users
but also seeks to identify deeper reasons

As part of the Carolina College
Republicans' annual membership drive,
Broyhili encouraged the audience to work
in voter registration drives and to
persuade young people to register
"You might say, 'Where do I begin?
What can 1 do?' As a starting point," he
said. "1 would remind you that there are
7 5 0.000 potential voters in North
Carolina between 18 and 21 years of age.
These young people share many of your
views, goals and ideals.
"You can identify with them, talk
with them, answer their questions about
the Republican Party and encourage them
to register as Republicans."
Broyhili suggested that the UNC
chapter begin a grass roots campaign,
establishing political organizations on
campus similar to city and county
precincts with leaders in each dormitory
working to organize registration drives.
In saying the purpose of politicians is
defining the common good and
organizing the community to achieve that
common good, he encouraged young
people to become involved in politics.
"View it as the creative, meaningful,
moral and responsible sphere that lies at
the center of what America believes, what
she has achieved and what she stands
for." Broyhili said.
