Go away, George Will.
As Winston Churchill once said, “if you are not liberal at 20, you have no heart if you are not conservatives at 40, you have no mind.” The younger voter is traditionally liberal, and once they leave the house, get a job, pay taxes their opinions change rapidly. I know I have lots of friends who became Republicans once they graduated from college, I do know any who became Democrats.
Go away, George Will.
Will: “Young people have made up their mind about the Republican Party — that it’s kind of the dumb party.”
“These are the same young people who say they have warm feelings about socialism, but all they mean by that is that socialism means everyone being socialable and being nice to one another. They haven’t thought it through. Because the same people who are suspicious — who like socialism — are suspicious of government so, I think that they’re uninformed at this point. But the Republican Party is doing its very best to drive them away permanently.”
Says you! Its because you would rather shun the Millennial rather than talk to them. Writing off a major voting block as lazy and stupid will only push them to the Democrats. How many Millennials don’t vote all together because they have lives outside of the Beltway? Why would anyone give any time to a party that calls them lazy narcissists instead of trying to teach them like adults?
Conservatism is not given overnight; it is a learned way of life and skill set. I started listening to Rush Limbaugh when I joined the military and followed that up in 2007 when I left the Democratic Party. The primary problem is that to be a conservative; you have separate yourself from emotions to form logical opinions, most young people are reactionary and will use their emotions to govern their judgment. Hence the skill set I mentioned.
You were what’s wrong with the GOP when you were part of it.
If “young people” think Republicans are dumb, it’s because that is what the media tells them, not because of what they have seen or heard. Can anyone watch Maxine Waters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Stacey Abrams, Elijah Cummings, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Adam Schiff, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib on television and think the Dems are smart?
Dear George, in case you missed the memo, Gen Z is the most conservative generation in decades. This should be keeping you, the Dems, the RINOs and all the other Never Trumpers up at night. It’s real.
Will had better figure out how to respect Trump supporters, because Republican or not, we are the future of this country. If we lose, then it’s Goodbye America.
