    Young ConservatAnd, In Other News The NRA Appoints Oliver North as NRA President.....

    I don't know what happened, the title was supposed to be Young Conservatives...And, In Other News the NRA Appoints Oliver North As NRA President. My computer glitched.

    Anyway, I thought this snippet from the linked article had relevance, not only to the issue of the NRA, but 2A Rights, and general politics:

    .....young conservatives have a shot at winning over their friends and classmates: They’re operating in the same moral universe as many of their peers. Contrary to Hollywood’s portrayal of young Republicans, they’re not Bible-thumping, church-going, hallelujah-shouting religious proselytizers. They’re small government, leave-everyone-alone libertarians. Young conservatives may not care about same-sex marriage, but they’re deeply pro-life and pro-gun. In fact, contrary to popular opinion, younger Americans tend to be more pro-gun rights than older Americans. They’re against government spending programs and favor private market solutions. They militantly oppose the myth of a racist, sexist America, even as they condemn individual cases of racism and sexism.....

    .....President Trump’s startling popularity among Republicans has been well-documented. He has consistently maintained high levels of support among Republicans, no matter the headlines and controversies raging around him. Opposing Trump with a presidential primary challenger would be an exercise in futility—polls show that a huge majority of Republicans want to see Trump renominated. But that doesn’t hold true among younger Republicans. An incredible 82 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters between the ages of 18 and 24 say they “want another Republican to challenge President Trump for the party’s nomination in 2020.” So do 57 percent of those aged 25 to 34 and 58 percent of those aged 35 to 44. Compare that number with the 74 percent of Republicans over the age of 65 who oppose a primary challenge, and you’ve got a chasm the size of the Grand Canyon.


    The article is here, it is by Ben Shapiro: https://www.weeklystandard.com/shapi...oung-americans

    I like Shapiro but the only caveat Iíll throw is he is, not anti-Trump, but he doesnít like him.

    If your business is political opinon, isn't that the way it is supposed to be done?
    I like Shapiro, he's about logic and American values, not so much about "feelings".

    Head and shoulders better than Kristol, Howe and Egg McMuffin, and those who Erickson misguidedly took under his wing after they made RedState a toxic soup of assbaggery.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    God forbid our politicians would that logic.
