    the Republican party has some serious thinking to do. Ask yourselves why Ron Paul is so incredibly successful at reaching young people, and the Republican party fails so miserably. If you think it’s because he wants to legalize drugs you are sorely mistaken. it is because his message is eloquent and well spoken, and most importantly, consistent and truthful. The party could learn a lot from not having abrasive loudmouths like Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity be its mouthpieces You can find all the videos you want of young people saying stupid crap (which by the way you could find plenty of Romney supports saying stupid crap too; out of millions of millions of people there will always be some idiots. and what percent of americans can eloquently express political viewpoints when a camera is shoved in their face?), but young people are not as moronic as you seem to think they are. They appreciate honesty and consistency, and a focus on issues that are genuinely important to America and not a bunch of distracting moral social junk which is better decided by the states anyways. I do not think that Obama is a great leader. But I also think that the Republican party is an incoherent, hypocritical, ideologically confused, disingenuous mess of an organization. What the party stands for makes no sense to me at all. I have to sit through this incessant, ear-splitting screaming about how Obama is a “socialist,” while it’s difficult for me to see how Romney is any less of one. If Obama is so socialist, and Romney is not, then why does Romney constantly ensure his supporters that while he will implement entitlement reform, their Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security will remain untouched? If he is supposedly such a great leader with such brilliant ideas, why was his solution to the health care problem to implement mandated healthcare, just like Obama, when he was in charge? (something that REPUBLICANS brought up and thoroughly tarnished him with before the “smear campaign” by Obama). Why does Romney support limiting deductions ONLY FOR THE RICH which makes it so they pay MORE in taxes which amounts to nothing more than a TAX INCREASE FOR THE RICH??? And if he is so fiscally responsible, then why did he want to INCREASE military spending while lowering taxes, which surely will lead to a debt increase??? (he never actually gave specifics on how the deductions limitations and tax code reform would actually cover this gap).

    maybe this makes you angry to read. but take it as good advice: I am one of those voters who the Republican party COULD reach, but does not. I am sick of disingenuous behavior by BOTH parties. I want honesty, and consistency. I think in these trying times the Republicans should SHUT UP already about social issues. Who cares about things like gay marriage, that the states should decide anyway, when our country faces this amount of debt and fiscal irresponsibility? It turns off voters who could otherwise be reached, and you are playing into the democrats’ hand. I think the core fiscal message of the GOP is deeply valuable and important, but it gets lost in the messy fray of the party talking points. Ron Paul has honed his message to an artform, and his rallies are heavily populated by young people. It is because he talks in clear terms about issues that truly matter to our country, and maintains a consistent and honest message that he explains in detail. Yet the Republican party pushes him out. you all could learn a lot from the movement he created.

      Ron Paul is for isolationism while radical Islam takes over the rest of the world and for legalizing marijuana other illicit drugs. We have voted on Ron Paul repeatedly. Now go away. But he won’t because he is a control freak as are many of his followeres who would rather lose and endure Obama than do the right thing and support the lesser of the evils. Control freaks never compromise an inch. They are dinosaurs.

      • slowdownnn says:

        if they are dinosaurs, then how come they have so much support with young people? And how is more laws governing personal freedom (and on the federal level no less, at least the states should be able to decide for themselves) not bigger government? Would you really side with the Obama administration when it comes to prosecuting non-violent marijuana users in the state of Colorado when the people in that very state voted to make it legal? Side with the Obama administration federally charging individuals and throwing them in jail for something the people spoke out on? It’s distractions like that that make the Republican party un-appealing to young people. They say they want smaller government, but then they want MORE laws governing personal freedoms. Federal laws. THAT is big government. I don’t think that Ron Paul and other libertarians are right about everything, but at least they are more honest and consistent with their viewpoints, and that is why young people listen to them and not to Republicans, who earmark bills, balloon the debt (look at how much the debt increased in the Bush years), and play petty politics just like the democrats.

          Ask a teenager now while they know everything.

          • slowdownnn says:

            those weren’t rhetorical questions… would you side with the administration and federally prosecute marijuana users in Colorado, even though they voted to legalize it?

    So what do we do? I stopped buying Hollywood crap a long time ago. I don’t go to movies. I joined a Million Moms. Don’t send my kids to liberal universities. I would put my two youngest in private school if we had not just lost $100K from the housing market and moving home to the South to get out of the unionized school system where even the Catholic school was liberal. Money talks. Think before you spend anything. I am also stopping charitable contributions because they pay their staff too much and the people they support voted for Obama and these liberals all over the country. Enough. We need to learn to say “I will not comply.” If enough people withheld their taxes because it is used for abortions then we could make a difference. Too bad there are too many sheep. I have never been a sheep. I will not start now.
