Vladimir-Davidiuk-JrVladimir Davidiuk, Jr.

Vladimir Davidiuk, is a Political Science / Pre-Law Major at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, where he’s a member of the UST College Republicans, Pi Sigma Alpha (the honor society for PoliSci majors), the Student Government Association, as well as the Celts For Life pro-life group, and the Golden Key Honor Society.

He’s married to a wonderful woman and they have been blessed with two beautiful children. His family history is long and convoluted. Suffice it to say that he is of Ukrainian ancestry, and that his grandfather was persecuted and chased out of his homeland by Communism. A new start in the New World gave him the freedom to speak, worship and live as he pleased. That legacy runs through Vladimir’s veins as well.

His blogging career began in earnest in 2008. This particular space was created as a place to reflect on the intersection of politics, events and culture. He views the world through the lens of Conservatism, and works closely with fellow students and other members of the community to further those causes and ideals.

He has served as Republican Precinct Chair, and Election Judge. He serves on the Outreach Committee for the Harris County Republican Party, and is a member of the Republican Hispanic Citizens in Action, and the Houston Young Republicans. He has worked in volunteer and staff capacities on various political campaigns, such as the Steve Mueller campaign for Congress (TX-9), the Ted Cruz campaign for U.S. Senate, and the Romney Presidential campaign.
