Of course, young people are sickened by the White House refusal to do anything meaningful about the out of control spending and the massive deficits. We aren't all losers. If it takes electing Republicans to bring some sense of fiscal sanity back to Washington then so be it.

Don't underestimate us. The media seems to think we are all as politically immature and self destructive as "calif" variety democrats. I think they are very wrong. I sure hope so.

The liberal community only seems big because the msm keeps touting their cause like it's really meaningful.

Your O-Derangement Syndrome sickness must preclude your reading the article as above - it is easypeasy - just click.

The most telling part -

Wouldn’t it be easier for Republicans to change the product, not the advertising?

The problem, as Kristen Soltis Anderson succinctly put it, is that the G.O.P. brand is perceived as “not of the 21st century.”

Could it be th 15th century?! LOLL

The GOP holds their own future in their hands and the elections last November demonstrate their ability.

No I wouldn't forget what has kept us free. If you are so against guns, why didn't you call out Obama and Holder for running them to drug lords or Syria causing an Ambassadors death. You are rather inconsistant.

Listen to "Responsibility". His kind actually supported enslaving the Public to the never ending demands of the Public Employees in California...and WON. After the November election all Private Sector workers and all of the Businesses in the State suffer under voter approved Taxation Without Representation if they stay in California.

FRee???

You are beholden to your paranoia, you are beholden to the NRA and you are beholden to the gun business. That is not Free

I will never - NEVER, NEVER, NEVER - understand why gun(*)uggers are so paranoid that they need guns to feel sale, need guns for the faux tyranny of the boogeymen or whatever scare tactics are the La(Poster Boy of Paranoia)Pierre's propaganda du jour.

As someone said on another blog -

Oh America - just grow up and stop being thugs.

And I will never understand a Government that wants to disarm its citizens. What are the Democrats afraid of? What are they hiding from their people? Incompetence? No, we can see that, so what are they so afraid to show us?

Guns are fine. But it would be nice if registration, training and,licensing were at least as well enforced and regimented as automobiles and driver's licenses.
Let them have all the bullets they want but tax them at 500% so those funds can pay for all the bills of violent illegal gun use.
Kinda like they do with cigs and alcohol.
Gun don't kill people, the chunk of lead flying out of one do.
But it's been a bad few months for gun-ownership. What do you expect with a Kenyan born, Chicago thug, communist, socialist, liberal, Hitleresque, Secret Muslim, racist, black, Golfing president.
Once we get a nice Conservaative Republican douchebag in the WH people will run around smiling all the time and gun violence will be a thing of the past.(except where the oil is)

Democrats can look back at every time they have tried to over ride the 2nd Amendment, and they lose the next 3 elections. They never learn. They are like addled chidren.

Yeah, I'll bet that's what the people of Germany were saying in the 1920's and 1930's when they allowed their government to disarm them. So modern, so savvy and so enlightened. Faux tyranny of the boogeyman was a scare tactic that modern, enlightened people were just too damned smart to believe. Collective power and equality for all beat the heck out of self determination and independence. What the hell did they need to be armed for? The repeated tyranny of the past is ancient history...it could never happen again, right?
