Lets face it: the GOP message doesn't get out to anyonre, least of all to young voters, Until that problem is fixed, public opinion (=votes) will be FOR the Democrat Party. We lost the battle be cause they control the message.

In order to change the young people into more intelligent thinkers, we must change the educatinal system. I was schooled in the 50s and early 60s and we were educated socialism them.

The GOP lost the battle because the youth are TAKERS like the rest of the lowlifes that support obama. If the GOP caves to the demands of the takers and illegal hispanic invaders why have two parties? These lowlifes want socialism because they are too lazy to take care of themselves. The demoRATS have destroyed this nation, it is time to break away from obama's progressive/socialist welfare empire. Our country under obama is no different than any other third world banana republic ruled by an arrogant, deceitful, and corrupt dictator.

Not to let the facts get in the way of a good story, but I am a highly educated professional who put myself through both of my degrees (often working 40 hours a week as I took a full course load) and has never taken a government subsidy in my life, although I have at times been eligible for one. I have built and maintained my own practice for 15 years, and I am a voracious supporter of the president and his policies.

If you want to make a case for me as a TAKER, good luck with that...

Republicans must adhere to our conservative principles or the ahole Democrats will destroy our beautiful country and turn it into a socialist cesspool like Europe.

You're a fool to adhere to destructive socialist policies.

You may not be a "TAKER"But I must say that your story is less than Totally Feasible! Sorry!

“When I’m president, I will make college affordable for every American.” -- President Obama, 2008

Any student who voted for President Obama--in either 2008 or 2012--in order to cut their college costs was sold a bill of goods. In Obama’s first four years, national tuition prices rose 25 percent and average graduating loan debt rose 16 percent.

Now, the Obama-signed sequester (aka “fiscal cliff”) includes an 8.2 percent cut in non-Pell student aid, an across-the-board cut of more than $140 million. Student loan origination fees will also go up $91 million.
