My son is 24. He told my a while ago that all of his friends that voted for Barack Obama are now saying, "I can't believe I voted for that guy."
Liberalism cannot win in the arena of ideas, and that is why it tries to masquerade itself as something else. That is why Obama lied so much during his campaign for president. Now, the true face of socialism is rearing upward, and the people don't like what they see, nor do they believe the lies anymore.
One of the bragging points of the left has been that they had the younger crowd. Fact is, "had" is the key word. Past tense. The youth of America are realizing the dangerous policies of the left, and are rejecting the Congressional Democrats and Barack Obama.
The rejection of the leftists by Young America is most evident in their feelings about the Democrat's health care legislation. In the beginning the younger voters were the strongest supporters of the Democrat's socialist healthcare initiative. A look at polls focused on young people in Arkansas, North Dakota and Maine, however, shows that the trend is changing, and the young people of America are turning away from the Democrats.
From DickMorris.com the following poll shows that
Under 30 = 25% Support & 65% Oppose
30-49 = 28% Support & 60% Oppose
50-64 = 41% Support & 50% Oppose
Over 65 = 32% Support & 55% Oppose
Young America has swung sharply against Obama and the Democrats. In fact, all of the Democrat's policies are extremely unpopular according to the polls. Obama's approval rating hovering around 50% (and below 50% on many of the polls) is only so high because despite being against his policies, a great many people thinks he's "trying real hard."
Obama may be able to talk the talk, but he can't walk the walk, would be one response - but ultimately, his policies are designed to drop America to its knees, and the people are realizing that.
The question now is if the politicians will listen to public opinion, or try to ram down our throats what we don't want?
The agenda to destroy America is by design, and that is why the elections in 2010 and 2012 are so important. The Democrats have already proven that they don't care what you have to say, or that their plans are unconstitutional. The only way to stop them is to fire them - fire them all.
Conservative candidates need our votes. This is a national effort, and we must be involved. Otherwise, the leftists will do exactly what Obama promised, and change the American Form of Government into something the Founding Fathers never intended.
God Bless America.
