Barack Obama may be the Republicans' best friend when it comes to educating 18-33-year olds of the Millennial Generation about the downside of voting for the Democrats economic policies.
According to a report from the Pew Research Center for Social and Demographic Trends, the 73.7 million Millennials are unattached to organized politics and religion, linked by social media, burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry and optimistic about the future.
This growing rejection of the Democrat Party will undoubtedly have consequences in the coming mid-term and presidential elections.

distrustful of people because the people they know do not believe in an absolute truth. Hard to trust when you live by lying. Conservatives trust few politicians, too.
You get what you pay for. Dopes!
This explains the democrats growing desperation for an ‘immigration reform’ bill.
They got their zerocare care bill.
I believe the GOP’s increasing support from these people, is because Obama has been in charge long enough, to have been blamed for everything going to China.
This is very fortunate.
However it requires the GOP to turn around, and start to look out for America.
“...linked by social media,///”
And they do not liked being spied on.
And they despise feminists with a passion. :)
The Rand Paul effect.
The problem is that without a moral foundation, they will always be susceptible to campaign pitches and shallow thinking, and easily led by the democrats offerings that they so easily shape for each election and each demographic.
Every little bit helps, but since they believe in so little, it is hard to appeal to their deeper inner selves, and convince them to vote for the long term, and the good of the nation, rather than their own short term interests.
The Ran Paul effect is like mitt Romney’s, drive away the base with liberalism and try to replace it with new voters.
“”I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues,” Paul advised. “The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people who do believe in traditional marriage. But the Republican Party also has to find a place for young people and others who dont want to be festooned by those issues.””
Mitt Romney was the first presidential race to win hugely with Independents, yet lose the election, and he did that in an election that the GOP couldn’t lose.
Looks like we’ll have to import even more voters.
At the federal level, the GOP needs to emphasize federalism. All the social issues should be decided at the state level. I believe that millennials would really embrace this concept. Some millennials might even decide to get involved in local & state politics because they could actually make a difference.
Federalism, truly practiced, would create some very diverse conditions which would allow for interesting comparisons. It would also firmly establish policing power at the state level. We wouldn’t need education, energy, DEA, FBI, EPA, ATF, BLM and on and on. This also makes the prospect of martial law much less likely. Sure, there would be some bad states and some weird ones, but power would be much more decentralized. As the justification for federal agencies becomes weaker, and agencies whither and hopefully die, campaign money would dry up at the federal level.
I’m sure that getting their morning lattes from baristas with PhDs, JDs or MBAs has opened more than a few of the churlins’ eyes to where the path of leftism is taking us.
We have been told over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over that millenials are lifelong pro-infanticide, pro-sodomy, pro-culture of death, pro-big government, pro-welfare, pro-hollywood, pro-obama, pro-hitlery, and pro-socialism.
Now they’re not necessarily so?
“without a moral foundation”
Only socialists receive their moral foundation from government. And it’s mostly bad.
You just disagreed with me that Americans need a moral foundation, no wonder you promote libertarianism and it’s war against Christianity and traditional Americanism.
“The problem is that without a moral foundation, they will always be susceptible to campaign pitches and shallow thinking, and easily led by the democrats offerings that they so easily shape for each election and each demographic.

What? They don’t have enough registered dead people?
They said the same about gen x. We didn’t go all democrat.
