Being a republican sucks. I would love to go out and tell the world that they are special and deserve everything because of who they are. I would love to forgive the debts of all the college kids. I would love to go to the ghetto and spread around government cheese. But I cant, because I refuse to play on peoples greed, and verify, justify, and substantiate my own.
Republicans- Find someone who is not old and smells like money to do your talking. you look like a bunch of old farts. The only republican youth are the ones that are waiting to cash in on trust funds. The "elephant in the room" is that everyone is interested in the college age group. They make the political decisions these days, and its usually going to be in their best interest. The jack asses below are getting to the hearts of the kids in ways that the first female president cant.
Democrats- this whole "empower the youth" thing has never worked. how about "employ the youth"? Ofcourse they are going to vote for the person who promises them the most money! But giving it to them is only getting you an army of hired followers. Without a strong reason to be democratic, they will jump ship for the next big dollar. Teach these kids to make their own money, not to sit in NYC begging for change and beating on drums in a tent in the middle of a public park trying to get it handed to you.
TeaParty- The real reason its called the tea party is because it was thought up over coffee at a suburban caribou by mid-40s upper class housewives empowered by CNN and The View. If you want to help us do better for ourselves, start paying kids to mow your 20 acre lawn instead of the el-cutto expresso van that drives around. You may be able to brag at bridge night about supporting the poor in your own little way, but just like the democrats, your feeding a man, not teaching them to fish.
Independent- find a new way to get into the fight, the only thing America sees you as is a monkey wrench in the main 2's numbers. Perhaps a very specific, solid, public platform is what you need! I have always liked the independent party, They are not set to an age old set of beliefs (for the most part). The problem is no one takes you seriously.
all the other parties not mentioned- yea, your screwed. I would take that money spent on those fart in the wind campaigns every year, and pool the money into lobbying for the change your after. I know that everyone wants to have "ran for president" on their resume, but the "joe the plumber" or "Legalize it" party isn't doing much for the good of the USA. you hear me Whigs? your time came and went several hundred years ago. I couldn't imagine one of your delegates getting into office, it would be like putting the janitor in charge of the company. You just have no idea what is going on up in that office. neither do I, but the difference is that I know I don't know.
What do you all think? give me something inspirational!
