In response to:

Romney Lost OH, PA, and VA Because of the Youth Vote

I'd say both. Only productive (employed) citizens should be allowed to vote. Socialist Lemmings like college students should never be allowed in the voting booth. If this is too much conflict for the argument "old enough to fight for his country but not old enough to vote", I'd say if he/she is fighting for their country then give them a waiver.

26th Amendment proponents, back in 1971, also made the argument that 18-year-olds could also drink legally. And what did that lead to, I might ask? A stratospheric spike in the number of drunk driving accidents and traffic deaths attributable to the 18-to-20 year old age group whilst under the influence. I seem to remember that when Mothers Against Drunk Driving was formed, there was massive resistance to their campaign to raise the drinking age back to 21 - until the states faced the prospect of having Federal highway funds cut off. It will take an even bigger fight to toss the 26th Amendment into the ash-heap of history - but it has to be done before the youth do the same to this country.

It’s been more than a week since the election, and everyone is still Monday-morning-quarterbacking Governor Romney’s campaign. It’s annoying. Romney ran an honest and positive campaign, and we wish him the best.

From the beginning of this race, we said the Conservative Movement and our candidates needed to speak directly to young Americans.

We didn’t, and we lost the White House largely because of this lack of effort.

Romney would’ve won the election had he won the same percentage of the youth vote--45 percent--that George Bush had won...
