Youth Vote, Can You Hear Obama Now?

The media made much of the great number of young people who supported Obama for president. Their blogging and internet savvy provided an inestimable level of financial support and campaign rhetoric.

The Acorn buses were all over college campuses transporting students to register or vote, although one can question the level of Obama loyalty here, as the students were often rewarded for making the trip.

One can visit political forums and find many of those who still strongly support Obama to be young people. In these anonymous forums they reveal their age more by style of speech, knowledge and references than open sharing. In the same way, those with a conservative outlook seem to be a bit more, um, mature. Sort of like the Conservative Movement.

When will the taxpayers of tomorrow realize they’ve been betrayed? It is they who are looking forward to debt beyond anything their parents even imagined.

From National Review Online

“Taxpayers earning less than $200,000 a year will pay roughly $3.9 billion more in taxes — in 2019 alone — because of healthcare reform, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress' official scorekeeper for legislation.”

Polls show rising unhappiness with the nohealth care law. Has reality begun to hit the youth?
I predict the average age of those at tea parties is going to slowly drop. The Mentor 9-12 Project welcomes patriots of any age. No entrance fee for those seventeen years and younger with parents.
