UPDATE: News Release — “A Romney first: over 40% of youth vote back him”
By Shane Bias
Let it be known, that there is change in the air. Let it be known that students are waking up and are disgusted with the way the Obama administration has handled our future. Let it be known that no longer will the youth be controlled or manipulated by Obama’s fabrications and scare tactics. They say if you’re not liberal when you’re young, you have no heart. We say if you’re liberal when you’re young, you have no brain!
During the 2008 elections, Barack Obama campaigned on hope and change. Obama promised us lower taxes, more jobs, less debt and the youth vote listened. The youth vote was very much captivated by the smoke and mirrors setup by the Obama administration. Four years ago Obama deceived the youth. This year, the youth will not and cannot be fooled!
The support for Obama among young voters is in a downward spiral to an all-time low of just under 50%! And we are just getting started!
I believe the youth are sending a strong message to Obama and his failed policies. If 16% unemployment is your example of “change” President Obama, then we don’t want it! If 50% of young Americans being underemployed or not employed are your version of hope President Obama, then we don’t want it!
But it would be ill-advised and naive to count Obama and his Chicago cronies out. After all, Obama and his cronies did create the most successful Internet campaign politics has seen.
The Obama administration knows how to do one thing correctly and that is use social media and the Internet to effectively fundraise and recruit. They did it in 2008 to defeat Clinton and then again to defeat McCain. But this is four years later and Barack Obama has yet to meet Students for Romney!
The youth are fed up with the promises and lies of the Obama Administration. The youth are energized and actively partaking in Internet and social media groups to combat the Obama machine. We are putting out a call to action for every single young American today. Stand up and fight with us!
No longer can we afford to travel down the paths of this administration. We cannot afford to put this election on the back burner. The time to take back our country is today! It is time to join the ranks and be a part of something that is truly greater than you.
We are about getting people back to work; we are about lowering the debt; but most importantly, we are about righting the wrongs of this past administration.
The tides are turning. The ball is moving. We are building the largest youth coalition the GOP has seen since the Ronald Reagan days. And don’t let the Democrats, or Obama, tell you that we didn’t build that! We will continue to send shock waves through D.C on our way to restoring America. We are fundamentally changing politics as you know it in the GOP.
But we must have your support. We are asking you to fight with us to ensure our future is bright. Fight with us to take back our country, because if we are defeated; we will lose much more than just this election. We will miss a chance at real hope and positive change.
If you seek to make a difference or if you strive for positive change please visit our website today and sign up (www.studentsformittromney2012.com)! God Bless you all and God Bless the United States of America!
