This is a great video of teenagers who can’t vote begging for those of us who can vote to do the right thing in November to save America so it will be there for them when they are older:

  • Well i’m one of the lucky teenagers that will be able to vote by November. Those dems will feel my vote, mark my works 😉

    • Nukeman60

      Bravo for you, John. You, too, are a true American. Voting is one of our greatest gifts, but also one of our most important responsibilities.

    • Yeah! Another voting nail in the coffin of Socialism! God bless you John!

    • celestiallady

      Makes me proud even though I am not your mom!

    • sDee

      If I may speak for my generation John, we are poised to go down as the one that scuttled the Republic.We have squandered what the Greatest Generation gave us.

      I am ashamed of the sorry lot of thieves and subversives we have elected to guard the liberty of the nation and the world. It took some of us a while to figure it out and many thought they were doing the right thing. However there can be no excuse for such ignorance and irresponsibility.

      My deepest apologies. I intend to spend the rest of my time here removing the disease we now call a government that we have let spread.

      • WordsFailMe

        I know what your saying and I would be the last to try to defend us, but

        “We ain’t DEAD yet!” And with guys like you, Rshill, Mike, ABC- 12, Linky, Ken, GeeenB, Nuke, Tongoon, Gino, WW et al, et al… they’re gonna find themselves in a real fight for the soul of this nation before we’re gone.

        • We ain’t dead yet! That’s for sure! I don’t intend to some day tell my son or my granddaughters, I let America die. Aint gonna happen, and bob’s your uncle! 😀

      (Does “wow” still mean “I’m proud to be on this site with you and I’m excited about your patriotism and enthusiasm?”)

      • FutureOnePercent

        It means World of Warcraft now… so I’m glad you followed that up with an explanation or I would have been very confused.


        • WordsFailMe

          Thanks F-1. LOL

    • FutureOnePercent

      There’s still a glimmer of hope…

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Good for you, John. Welcome to the fight.

    • Great John! YAY! It’s an awesome responsibility, and I’m glad to see you take it seriously. God Bless!

    • Kelly60

      Way to go John! I have FOUR eligible voting youths that I have raised that will add to yours as well…they can’t wait til November gets here

    • woodsman1st

      Thank you John; your a young man to be proud of; please try to get as many as you can to follow your excellent example.

  • Sober_Thinking

    This is nice… a little fluffy… but encouraging.

    I’m sorry to be pessimistic but I’d love to see how many of these people are genuine, not just paid actors, and how many stay in touch with and truly believe these excellent points they’re making. How many of them will follow what’s going on and stay awake. How many will stand up for what’s right – not buckle under the pressure of their uninformed friends.

    The left has been mining our youth for decades – this is (in part) why we are so screwed up right now. Teach our children well and they can salvage us from the deepest, most depraved state and renew America’s greatness. Let them be indoctrinated and blinded, and they (and America) are lost.

    • According to the video these teenagers belong to the organization below and very much believe what they are saying.


      • keninil

        That’s just a handful as compared to the clueless 18-25 yr old demographic in this country that has been fed socialist principles since they were 11. The Waters’s World video posted just before this one I believe is more representative of this and the 26-33 year old group. Too many are waiting for a hand up/hand out to “start” their lives on their own. They expect society to give them the job in the field they want to work in as opposed to finding a job that will fit their talents. I don’t know how we teach them about that “pursuit of happiness” thing.

        Can we show this in all college/12th grade classrooms this fall? Probably not.

        • FutureOnePercent

          I just got into the 26-33 year old group, and I can tell you that the Water’s video is spot on accurate. Sadly.

        • Don’t forget keninil, and don’t despair. There are more and more homeschooled kids coming out of highschool, who are going to be able to vote. And most of them are well learned in true American History!

          • librtifirst

            I pay attention to the crowds at RP rallys. There is a huge diversity of age and race in the crowds, but many are college age kids. He packed in many thousands per event at the colleges. These kids are not liberals. They support constitutional government on a much smaller scale than we have now. They understand the basics of our economy. They have a political philosophy that is based on individual liberty “and” responsibility. These young people know how to get the word out, and are extremely active and involved.

            This is a good video of one 18 year old who was duly elected as a delegate in Mass. You will have to excuse the Rachal Maddow venue, but listen to the kid. He is impressive, and there are many more where he comes from. She interviews him in person.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Sorry for the duplicate…

      • Sober_Thinking

        Thanks Scoop. You’ve shown me some light in this darkening world. I appreciate the follow up.

    • Bucketheadbaptist

      I hope Scoop is right … because these kids seem a little bit “Stepford” if you ask me.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Exactly. Lol!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Precisely. It’s a nice message. The format is clearly a scripted commercial, and I’m always naturally skeptical of those.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Me too.

    • librtifirst

      I am ashamed to say it, but I remember arguing with my conservative uncle when I was a teenager. For some reason I thought that government should take care of everyone.

      Then I spent a couple of years living out of my car, then started work in a mill when I was 18, got married, had children, went to trade school and worked to improve our lives, and even opened a business. Through this process I became a staunch conservative, and learned to to resent government by the time I was 21 years old.

      I don’t think that my education contributed to it, because I didn’t pay much attention in school and dropped out at 16. I think that it was just pure ignorance of how anything works, and a total lack of philosophy.

      I was working full time when I was 14. I have paid taxes every year since I was ten. That isn’t possible today, and children have even less opportunity to learn these lessons early in life, due to labor laws.

      The conservative movement has a great disadvantage in this today.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Great post, thanks for sharing. You have my respect.

        I dropped out at 17 and then joined the USAF. I finished 20 years and also completed my Master’s degree through George Washington U. I don’t say that to brag at all… just that if a knucklehead like me can make something of himself, or a young man who has worked hard all his life can make it this far, then the youth of today have no excuses.

        Thanks again for your story.

  • Magnificent video! Fills me with hope and joy. Whoever made this video and all those appearing in it are PATRIOTS!!! This video should be shown on TV in every state from now until November! I’m saving this video incase youtube pull it so I can put it back up. Youtube has a nasty habit of pulling conservative videos in my experience.

    Edit: I’m tweeting this and putting it on my facebook page right now.

    • You’re on facebook whitewolf?! Look me up!! I’ve got a duck profile pic (and I’m going to leave this up for a few minutes before I delete it. But I’d love it to be friends with ya! Carolyn Callow Elkins 🙂

  • WordsFailMe

    The Democrats and Black racist Hollyblood types–will be tweeting the names and addresses of these young people by noon today.

    • marketcomp

      Well, in the words of Mark Levin, “We have to stop leaving our people on the battlefield” We the people must fight for them!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Spike Lee’s already putting together an anti- film on the subject. Matt Damon is headlining.

  • williamm

    These children haven’t yet been exposed to college where over 70% of professors are liberal and less than 15% are conservatives. This is the main reason the White House traitor along with the rest of the socialists want more people in college.

    I understand indoctrination starts much earlier like Michelle appearing on the Disney channel, but at least most of the children live at home where their parents still have some influence on their children.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Precisely. This week alone, we’ve read elsewhere how the young Conservative who inspired so many at the last Republican convention has already softened to a Liberal. These young’uns are inspiring, true, but they’ve an awful lot of life let to live.

  • giomerica

    Ironically, if these kids were liberals, then the democrats would be doing everything in their power to have them vote anyway… twice.

    • FutureOnePercent

      I’m waiting for them to unveil their new Get Out the Vote campaign in middle schools called “Why Wait?”

  • marketcomp

    Freedom is one generation away from becoming extinct! Very powerful!

  • GreenBeretWay

    Thank God there are still some out there worth fighting for.I was having my doubts after watching the Jesse Watters man on the beach video.

    • As I replied to keninil above myGreenBeret, there are more and more kids who are homeschooled than ever before. The majority of them are learning true American History, and are definitly worth fighting for. 🙂 I’ve been missing my friend- hope you’re having a Blessed week!!!

      • GreenBeretWay

        What’s up with the new star and blue band ? You didn’t flip out and go Blue/ Democrat on me did you?

  • meilin622


  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Erm … well, it’s a good message. I’m really not keen on using folks that way in advertising. If the Left did this, we’d be up in arms about misusing kids.

    • marketcomp

      Well E, typically if the left were using young teenagers the message would be rooted in communist/marxist ideology. Be thankful becasue the foundation of these teenagers message is rooted in reality, the Constitution, and idividual sovergnty.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        No, I get that. It’s just that, for consistency’s sake, I stand against using children at all times. For the record, I’m not convinced these kids are saying something THEY believe in. It’s clear that it’s produced from a shooting script, so how am I to know they mean it any more than the kid who tells me he’s entitled to an iPhone at taxpayers expense?

        • I ‘liked’ your post because I encourage all to post because the more input the better. But I hope you are wrong. Nothing personal of course, but I have to have some hope left for the future generations or all is already lost.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Precisely. So far as I know, there’s just no way to know what these kids think, and that’s why I don’t think either side of the aisle should be using children in advertisements. I have no problem if the kids have these opinions — I hope they do! — I’ve just no way to know that they’re not working from what’s an obvious script.

        • marketcomp

          Yea I see your point, E. Lee Zimmerman. But, to produce something like this there has to be a script to organize the message and that doesn’t mean they don’t believe in what they are saying. Just remember that when the left does this stuff they also have a script but the teenagers are usually young Hollywood actors. The teenagers in the video did not have to voice their allegiance to the country. In fact they didn’t have to say anything because has they reminded us, they cannot vote. I see it has a plea to those of us who can vote with the messaging being to vote the right way and save the country.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Of course, there’s an organization behind it. As I’ve said, I get all that. My point is that just as much as I despise the Left for using children to deliver political messages, I’m not gonna embrace the Right for doing it … even if those children did it themselves and posted it on YouTube.

            The political debate that we’re involved in has vast complexities. While I can certainly appreciate how much a young skull full of mush MAY grasp of it, I’ve no way to determine from a single commercial produced from a script how well they truly comprehend it. I’m far more inclined (and maybe that’s a fault of my own) to take the word of an adult than I am a child.

            As I’ve said elsewhere, I’ve been around what I believe is more than my fair share of youth, ages 10-17, at different times in my life. I just don’t see them as fully grasping the complexities. I think they understand the basics, and, while that’s all well and good, they’re still experimenting with life, figuring out who they’re going to be when they’re all grown up, etc. Such is the nature of maturing. Who we are today is only one step toward becoming the person we’re ultimately going to be tomorrow, so you’ll all have to pardon me if I’m a bit skeptical of a produced commercial AND equally suspicious of its format. That’s just who I am today.

            I’ll let you know who I am tomorrow once I know.

            • marketcomp

              LOL:) Well E, I hate to lose ya, just in case you are someone else tomorrow, but it does take the ability to think reasonably and logically to be a conservative. I mean liberalism is easy, its like a religions and all emotions and feelings all the time. But to be a conservative, my friend, requires thought and in many instances research. So I hope you improve on your positions today because it you decide to go the other way tomorrow your conservatism will bring you back to reality.

    • keyesforpres

      It’s not misusing kids when they are demanding we stand up for the Constitution. It is using kids when you convince them to be slaves of the gov’t.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Again, for the record, there’s no way of knowing that these kids are expressing their own desires. You can believe them all you want; my point is that it’s clearly a SCRIPTED commercial. It’s always wrong to misuse children.

        • keyesforpres

          See my post above.

          Your attitude towards these young adults is rather insulting.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Saw it.

            Your attitude toward respecting other’s opinions is entirely insulting.

          • Everything I’ve seen you write has been civil…

    • keyesforpres

      Look at the link Scoop has posted below. These kids belong to that organization. In other words, they DO believe in what they are saying in this video. They aren’t paid actors.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Again, for the record: the video is CLEARLY a script. If this were produced as interview snippets with the kids, I’d be more inclined to believe that the words coming out of their mouths was their own. As it is, I’m skeptical. Besides, I don’t support using kids in commercials of this nature.

        • keyesforpres

          Well no duh Zimmerman. Of course it’s scripted. Those kids agree with it and wouldn’t have done the commercial if they didn’t agree with it. They’re big enough to make up their own minds. They weren’t being used. They FOUNDED the organization that Scoop links too.

          I think it’s very effective and needed to reach young people. These kids aren’t little 6 year olds. Heck, I used to argue with my social studies teacher when I was 12 regarding Jimmy Carter. These kids are old enough to know what they believe in. Stop treating them like they are little babies.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            Yeah. You clearly need more sleep. Either that, or you could use some brushing up on your reading skills. I’ll say it again, though, as you apparently keep missing it: I don’t support using children to convey political messages. I don’t support it for ANY ideology, and that includes yours, mine, or theirs.

            And, again, because you keep missing it (or denial is something you embrace), let me say that it’s precisely BECAUSE of the format that I’m skeptical. It’s clearly scripted; I’ve no way of knowing who wrote the script. I’ve said that IF it had been produced from interviews WITH the kids, I’d cut it some slack. It isn’t, so I’m reasonably suspicious anytime someone reads from a script. You seem far more inclined to give them a pass. I’ve no problem with that, but you clearly have a problem with anyone who disagrees with you.

            Just because Scoop endorses it, that doesn’t mean I have to. I’m an independent thinker. I don’t take my marching orders from anyone. I see that you do, and that’s all well and good. I don’t.

            My point is that most kids — at 15, 16, 17 — they really don’t comprehend the complexities of our political debate. You think they do; good for you. My experience with youngsters and teens teaches me differently. You want to fault me; I’m simply stating an opinion predicated on my own life experiences. Who’s treating who like a baby, eh?

            For the record, I don’t support using celebrities, either, but for entirely different reasons.

            • keyesforpres

              Give it a rest. These kids founded a conservative organization and agreed to do this ad. Have you even looked at the link Scoop posted?

              I got the “complexities” when I was 12 and I think these kids get it too. Heck, it’s really not complex at all. It’s quite simple, we are spending too much, ignoring the Constitution, etc. It’s pretty simple.

              You want to keep going on and on and finding the negative in this go ahead. I think it’s great that these teenagers….young adults get it. God bless them for speaking out. They have EVERY RIGHT to speak out. No one forced them to do this ad. I would bet it was their idea.

  • joyfulgiver

    The HOPE of our future!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      No. Buck Rogers is the future. These kids are the present.

      • I thought Star Wars was our future? 🙂 Or Babylon 5? ( I love this show, no matter the critics)

  • Great video!

  • greatletterer


  • Oh, man I love it! I can sympathize with these kids- but someday soon, they will have the vote, and hopefully so will I. I just pray there will be still elections by the time that day comes.
    Fix it.

    I wonder if these are homeschooled kids?? No matter, I love these kids anyway.

  • This is our future generation who want their voices heard now.

  • Amazing! I didn’t know there were kids like this. They actually care about freedom and the Constitution. Actually got a little emotional at the end. This is a powerful message.

  • These kids got it right. We need President Zero retired and quickly.

  • toongoon

    That’s powerful.

    I betcha obama won’t endorse this video.

  • I hope and pray that you kids, no, young people, get a chance to vote when you are of age. That will mean that our country voted the proper way in Nov. ’12. I just hope that the young ones of voting age see through the fog produced by the socialists and American haters of this fine country so they too will make decisions such as yours. I now have a whole new outlook for the word “CHANGE”.

    What a wonderful group of young men and women! That was truly inspiring; to hear youngsters talk like that fills me with hope for America’s future.
    I am stunned at their eloquence and by their patriotism.
    God Bless Them All.

    This is precisely why Obama and his wife visit schools and speak to students while on the campaign trail. They will work hard to indoctrinate young people and influence teachers and teacher unions to work against the american way for years to come.

  • This is pure excellence. Bless each and every one of these teens who understand what liberty and freedom are all about and have the courage to say so!

  • milootoole

    As a young man, a boy, actually, I was raised in Boston, which you all know is a hotbed of Democrats. It was accepted as a fact that Republicans were all rich, Anglo Saxons. The majority Irish communities, just in conversation, would say that and accept it. And we all knew that rich Anglo Saxons didn’t give a hoot about us.

    The Catholic church was staunchly behind the Democrats. Although, in those days, they did not say much to us children about it, all our local pols were Irish Catholic, Democrats and the spirit and attitude was imbued in all those who grew up there. I became old enough and Uncle Sam beckoned, so I joined the Navy and went off to Korea. In the Navy, I met many people of different ethnic, religious and political backgrounds. I listened, I learned and I changed.

    Scripted or not, these kids give my heart a lift. I don’t know how much of what they are saying that they truly understand, but it is refreshing to hear them say things that I believe to be true. Things I never would have known when I was their age in school.

    We clearly are lacking in a politically astute population. Voting for a man based on his color or for another for his/her class warfare position will bring us to the brink—–oooops, we are already there.

    Come on kids, help save America. Good job!!

    ———-and please, ignore what the schools tried to teach you about American history, if it came from a Howard Zinn textbook.
