It will be interesting to see the breakdown down of the Iowa vote by age, race and party affiliation.

No doubt the Marxist party will be on life support in 2017.

I'm a millenial. I have to admit that I voted for Obama in 2008 because I though McCain did not have a shot in Florida anyway, and I wanted to be part of something historic. Even though my vote made no difference to the outcome whatsoever, that is one of my biggest regrets to date. I feel sick even thinking about it now.  :sad:

The progressive nightmare of the past 7 years has weighted heavy in my heart. I was so eager in 2012 to undo the 2008 mistake and heavily campaigned for Romney once it was clear he was the nominee. I thought he was going to pull a victory, and almost cried when it became clear he lost to Obama.

Most of my friends are in the 26-30 years old range, and for most of them the last 7 years have been nothing but disappointments. A mediocre economy, lack of jobs, huge government red tape crushing their business aspirations. Most of them are ready for a change and considering voting Republican. I can't say my friends are a fair representation of all millenials, but I definitely see the desire for something different within my group of friends. Heck, I'm ready for something different.

A President Cruz, or even a Marco Rubio (though  frankly Cruz would be a much better President) is something I desperately desire. I can't stomach the idea of a President Sanders or another President Clinton. That would be a disaster.

Sorry for the log post, but I had to unburden myself. I still can't believe how stupid I was at 23 years of age.

Skepticism, like chastity, should not be relinquished too readily.

It's sad but at my age I can look back over all my years and see the same thing in young people.  Now it starts at 18 and not 21.  Back in my day they did not bus kids to go vote.

There are millions that feel exactly as you do, and it's the very reason the Dim party is dead for an entire generation.
Simply because they realized they were lied to and won't be going back.

Many of us also saw the light in our 20's. Today matters are much more serious for our country. The democrats of the 60's would be run out of the party today and we thought they were liberals then. Congratulations on figuring out what is going on. Please lobby your peer group as to the threat we are facing with leftists trying to take over our country.

Yes, back then leftists were just a threat, today they own an entire party and have infiltrated the other.

America has always been Conservative. The American People have been the most generous on earth long before the later administrations began giving for them.
The anti culture today that believes/say we are a selfish,racist, taking people are describing themselves. When in public office or business, they,  take unequally and give in the same manner, they, we're speaking about the liberals here, are also the most racist sacks of crap on the planet, and steer any business, organization or portion of government, they control,to that same end.

Great post Valley!

Also, there is the effect of the unintended consequence of Hollywood making movies that are very violent to sell tickets - most young people consider guns to be normal and resent any efforts by the government to deny them or restrict access to them. The only exceptions to that are what my housemate calls "wheat germs" (aka hippies) who dislike guns because they are "mean" and they are mostly rabid dog Democrats who "feel" and "have a strong intuition" that "firearms are bad". They would mostly rather die on their knees blubbering for mercy while their children and loved ones are tortured, enslaved and/or slaughtered than to ever use a gun to defend themselves (aka demented, pathetic hoplophobes).
