    If we eliminate the social issues and the religious pandering of the Republican party, it's easy to see that Romney does have a partial point. It really makes no sense why young people would be interested in disenfranchising their own futures.

    If you look at the latest Obama budget proposal, he would like to drive the debt up insanely. And taxing the rich all you want won't put a significant dent in that. Amazing many people are so clueless.

    Do you even realize how ridiculously stupid you come across with that statement?

    "If we eliminate the social issues and the religious pandering" .... then there wouldn't even fucking be a Republican party. Duh.

    Shows how COMPLETELY out of touch your probable nominee is

    Whether he SEES it or not most young people DO vote democratic

    ....... Get it? .... IC?
    So just like his statement that the trees Arevthe right height or that he knows people who own NASCAR races ... Or that his Wife drives two Cadillacs ......
    he is out of step with the American experience

    I hope you're joking. That IS the future of the republican party. If you think that the republican party will end once it generally moves beyond pandering to the anti-gay crowd, then you sir are a complete moron.

    Please point out to me what incoming wave there is that is going to flood out the social issues and religious pandering of the Republican Party...Rick Santorum won my state.

    Last time I checked the republican party was super anti-science/anti-intellectual/anti-environmental.

    Both Democrats and Republicans go back to times when people embraced ideals that they would never think about supporting today, like slavery and segregation and yet the parties did not "end". There is a distinct libertarian shift in the Republican party with young people and that will be the future. The vast majority of young people voting in the primaries voted for Ron Paul.

    JPtheBITCH saidI don't see how anyone with a functioning brain can vote Republican. At any age. If you're a senior, they want to cut your Medicare. If you're a youngster, they want to cut your college aid. If you're a struggling guy with a family, they want to raise your taxes so they can give more tax cuts to the 1%.

    Really, the whole thing is just amazing.


    Yes, it is quite amazing when you realize a great deal of the system is about robbing from a future generation to artificially keep people in the here and now happy and then simultaneously pretend and sell everyone the idea that the status quo will be able to continue.

    It's the status quo that is robbing future generations and that status quo is rife with Republican policies.

    Since the Republicraps will never stop with their anti-everything-good stance, what you're basically saying is that we should sell out our basic rights so rich people can get richer.

    Well, I had no intention of calling anyone names, but hey....since you went there...dude, it's YOU who is the "moron." The Republican party is quickly going down the same path as the Whigs, and only a "moron" would not be able to see this.

    The Tea Party-backed GOP have focused more on social issues, primarily contraceptives and abortion than any other issues. I don't see that going away any time soon.

    And what policy might that be? Tax policies? Because if you remember, robbing rich people of every last penny still wouldn't solve our problems.

    So who do we blame now? There's only one thing to blame and it's this:

    TOO MUCH SPENDING.

    I think people will actually be quite surprised at how many young people do vote for Romney. I was at a Romney luncheon here in Phoenix a few months ago -- lots of sign carrying young people there. Not that this is any indication, but I think it's naive to think they're all voting democratic.

    I agree. However Mitt is naive enough to say this, "I don't see how a young American can vote democrat."
