The important issues facing our generation today are: the war
against terror, the economy, gay marriage, abortion, and a youthful
voice in government.
The Republican Party stands for protecting us against those that
would seek to destroy our lives and those of our families. They
stand for a strong national defense to protect us against any
threats, both on our shores and abroad.
The Republicans have not always been known for spending less
than the Democrats when it comes to government, but they have
always had, as a core belief, that people should keep more of
what they earn. This means that they are in favor of cutting taxes,
not raising them.
By defining marriage as something other than one man and one
woman, we put at risk the future of our children. That is why
I believe that many in the Republican Party are correct in believing
that we need The Federal Marriage Amendment or something similar
passed into law.
Recent advances in ultrasound technology continue to weaken the
argument that life does not begin at the moment of conception.
I think this is a very divisive, but also important issue for
us to recognize.
I believe that the Democrats have long been thought of as catering
more to youth, but that is changing. We are having a new renaissance
of conservatism and love for country sweeping across our nation.
This has caught many people by surprise.
Regardless of your leaning on the political spectrum or issue,
as young Americans we must continue to carry the torch of freedom,
remember to preach good tidings to all, bind up the brokenhearted,
and proclaim liberty to the captives. God bless America.
