    FACT!

    The two biggest support groups for Ron Paul are military and young people! Many of these youngsters were duped by Osama 4 years ago and these youngsters have "seen" the error of their ways.

    Also, lets go back to Nov. Dec of 2001 and how military recruiters couldnt keep up.

    NEVER under estimate the youth of this nation. They all seem wrapped up in their X-box 360's and skateboards. But hell, in my misspent 20s, i was wrapped in fast cars, faster women and good whiskey. Werent we all wrapped up in something that made our forefathers (and mothers) shake their collective head at our shenanigans??

    I have seen (i have raised/mentored half a doz. 20 somethings, as i raised my oldest, now 22) a core of raw iron in these kids!

    I am glad you guys are seeing it. The highschoolers in my area are rich pompous idiots who act like "gangsters" when most of them wouldnt know which way to point a gun.

    I am seeing some sharp youngsters in the military, and our local high school. Also sharp youngsters at the high schools two of my grandkids attend. Not all, mind you- and at that age, I was dumber than a bag of hammers.

    Was at the local Wendy's one evening, the SGT that runs the local Jr ROTC program was in there with 15 of his cadets- sharp, squared away, not slouching around- but still being youngsters. Introduced self to him, complimented the youngsters. You would have loved the grin on his face!

    Teens and early twenties even what can you expect? Were YOU a squared away top notch human at that point in your life?

    I KNOW i was about useless as tits on a boar. But thankfully i had good men to shake their collective head, sigh and point my sorry arse in the right direction.

    This is now our job as doddering old fools...shake our heads, chuckle at our own "misdeeds" of the ancient past and try to nudge the youth in the correct direction.

    sounds like you need to gather a few of these "ganster wanna bes" take them to the range for a picnic and safety/basic marksmanship lessons. Emphasis on safety and after the shooting session, fire up the grill and have a lunch/dinner of burgers, dogs, pasta salad and pop while munching and shooting the poo, discuss and reaffirm what was just learned during the shooting session.
