But Republicans said they worried their ranks would bear the brunt of the shift as young people moved away from party orthodoxy on issues like guns, gay marriage and climate change.

Looks like RINO fingerprints all over this one. Jebito, are you still out there?

So, believing in things that are not true is the way to go?

Im so disappointed to read that our young republicans are being brainwashed and it's working.

We should have a conservative big brother/big sister program on University campuses

The Republican Party and several churches have been the things holding the country back from full-on Communism.

Sounds like the Soros plan to undermine them is proceeding swimmingly.

Tax the carbon pollution produced by burning fossil fuels and then return the money to consumers as a dividend in the form of monthly cash payments to individuals, both adults and children alike.

Sounds like "universal basic income".

Who needs to work when you have free money handed to you that was stolen from others? Heck, that way you don't even have to do the work of stealing the money.

Sequester and solidify gaseous cO2 into nano fiber alignment, and replace steel with this new thing.

We already do this. Mass scale will arise, through necessity.

More evidence that our schools are failing bigly at teaching basics like the scientific method and math (specifically statistics).

I say “failing”. Liberals no doubt think it’s a huge success.

“Messages” win when facts don’t matter. And students don’t have the background to be swayed by facts of science and math. It happens in virtually all aspects of life and government: taxes/economy/budget, gun control, crime/justice system, immigration, “equality”, wages, etc.

Somehow,I can’t imagine people believing this climate change/global warming crap. They must be presenting only one side of this garbage at our colleges. I suppose if they implement carbon taxes & they don’t work(no reason to believe they would)then the next step in the indoctrination would be to convince the weak minds that it WAS working.

On the other hand, a carbon subsidy or tax break for carbon burning companies might spur investment and generate economic growth.
