“Too often I hear people over sixty talking about how young people are feeling in this election… We are vastly underrepresented which is a direct correlation to the political efficacy our generation feels.” – Charlie Kirk, Founder of Turning Point USA
“When fiscal & social issues are debated over social media, a generation such as ours has no escape and must take a side. The beauty of this situation is the fact that so many of our generation have sided with reasonable and logical solutions. That scares an establishment.” -- Tanner Brumbarger, Creator of The High School Conservative
“Thanks in large part to government schools and parental abdication, many in this generation are growing up today having been taught what to think instead of how to think, but thankfully, some of today's youth are realizing how important political involvement is- and how dangerous America's current path is. These are the youth that Americans en masse need to hear from. Maybe, if the media will give attention to young people who are doing just that, it will bring the youth of America one step closer to the realization that political involvement isn't just for their grandparents." – Gabriel Hudelson, Creator of All Authority
"According to the narrative, inaccurately described by the mainstream media, young people are coming out in droves in support of Barack Obama. But in actuality, the president is slowly losing the youth’s support. By eliminating young, conservative thought, the media pushes this narrative, when really the conservative movement is alive in the younger demographic. It is frustrating to feel like you're voice is not heard, but it's also valuable to realize that if the mainstream media ignores young conservatives, they'll never see us coming." – Amy Lutz, Creator of Young Federalist
“I hear the media discuss how the youth in America is an important factor in this upcoming election and in this country's future, yet they hardly ever give us a voice. When they do allow us to publicly speak, it is for a very limited amount of time. Our future of success, posterity, and our well-being is affected by the government. It is only fair that we deserve to have a voice as well.” – Caiden Cowger, Creator of Cowger Nation
The upsurge of young conservatives in the political sphere is making it tougher to be ignored. It’s now time for the mainstream media to give them a platform to make their voices heard.
