“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Maggie Lit is a Colorado native who received her Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast News at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her senior year she was enrolled in several political science courses and realized how prominent liberal bias was in the curriculum. Being the stubborn conservative she is, she wrote a column for The Daily Caller under a pseudonym, calling out her professors for abusing their platforms for the political indoctrination of students. That sparked the interest of college watchdog organizations, for which Maggie went on to report for during and after college.
Maggie later moved to San Diego, California to further her pursuits in unfriendly territory, where she provided on-camera political commentary and analysis for One America News Network prior to and during the 2016 elections. She was also the lead scriptwriter for “Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler,” a national political talk show, during which she was able to find her voice in opinion writing. Maggie was then hired by Laura Ingraham to direct and produce video content for her online publication, LifeZette out in Washington, D.C. During this time, Maggie wrote, performed, produced, and edited over 300 videos featuring original content.
After realizing news media wasn’t the vehicle to make her desired impact, Maggie began pursuing a career focused on strategic communications and alliance and coalition development at The Herald Group, a mid-sized public affairs firm, located in the heart of the nation’s capital. There, she was first exposed to the world of public policy through her work with industry executives and free market thought leaders and their common objective to break down the bureaucracy and red tape associated with today’s business environment. Maggie’s work informed her of the paramount battle being fought by the Independence Institute in her home state, which had all but turned a solid shade of blue since she left in 2014. She’s now returned home and is more jazzed than ever to fight off the tyranny and corruption of the left, while advancing messages of liberty and freedom to residents of the Centennial State and beyond.
