Did you ever wonder why parents are always warning their children not to talk to strange people and to stay out of unfamiliar vans? Yes, it's partially so that they don't get kidnapped. But there's actually a much bigger danger. Strange people who hang out in vans tend to be liberal, and they would like nothing more than to infect you with their Big Government ideas.
But you all wouldn't listen, and now just look at what's happened to America…
How doomed are conservatives? Pretty doomed, if you look carefully at the Pew Research Survey’s close analysis of the youth vote in the 2012 elections.
The Republicans’ long-term dilemma has generally been framed in racial terms, but it’s mainly a generational one. The youngest generation of voters contains a much smaller proportion of white voters than previous generations, and those whites in that generation vote Republican by a much smaller margin than their elders.
What’s more, younger voters supported President Obama during the last two election cycles for reasons that seem to go beyond the usual reasons — social issues like gay marriage and feminism, immigration policy, or Obama’s personal appeal — and suggest a deeper attachment to liberalism. The proclivities of younger voters may actually portend a full-scale sea change in American politics.
I don't get it! Once upon a time, America's youth used to walk around with short hair and cardigan sweaters. They'd say things like, "I like Ike" and "Please pass the Ovaltine." For fun, they'd go to a sock hop. Or give enforced haircuts to gay kids. What happened to those sweet innocent conservative children? And why do we have so many old people in the Republican Party, just a few decades later!
Something devious is happening. And I don't know quite what it is, but I'm sure Obama is to blame in one way or another.
