A Reason and Justification

I often find that today’s society is overwhelming: the lights, the sounds, the ads, the pressure, the opportunities, the temptations, and the list goes on.  But those aren’t the type of overwhelming elements I am talking about. I am talking about the overwhelming element of ideology and politics. 

Now there are a good number of people out there that are just overwhelmed by politics in general. They don’t care about the debates on issues, the votes of their senators, or really anything that happens inside the 61 square miles of Washington DC.  Then there are those that care, but just enough to cast a vote yearly.  Then there are those that care quite a bit and show it by preaching to the choir or talking with family.  Finally, there are those that don’t just want to make a difference, but are starting to make a difference.  That last group, that is who this blog is for because, you see, it is those people who areoverwhelmed.

America today has become stifling.  It depresses me to look around at our country and see what it has come to: a paternal government, an overtaxed plurality, a stifled economy.  It has become ideologically stifling with conservative values being departed from and liberties across the spectrum being eroded.  And while a friend accused me the other day of coming to this state of mind because I was “told” it, I curtly wish to lay out there that I have arrived at this state of mind because of my ability to think, see, feel, and observe.  I have seen what is wrong with our country, I have thought through the issues and the “supposed” solutions and do so everyday.  I am not voicing the opinion of myself and young conservatives everywhere because we have been “indoctrinated” by the likes of Fox News and Glenn Beck or been corrupted by the likes of CNN and the New York Times.  I am voicing my opinions and asserting solutions on fact and not feeling.  But I don’t just want to be one person voicing an opinion, I want to be one person reflecting a view that I know is out there. 

I know there are young conservatives - college aged, teenagers, even younger maybe - that know what is wrong; that see the country slipping on the spiral staircase.  Those young conservatives are who I write for.  They are who I reflect.  And it is this small crevice of the web that will give them a voice like no other.  This is time for the Young Conservative.  This is time for a new era.
