In an interview last week, former gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo argued that true conservatives should have supported Amendment 64 -- but he doubted that more Republican support would have driven many young voters to the GOP. One reader agrees in language that would likely please the ex-Congressman.
Tancredo is right. People my age don't vote Democrat based on this issue. It wouldn't change things much if the Republican Party adopted an anti-Prohibitionist stance. Young voters have been brainwashed through school to believe that having Big Brother take care of you and paddle you when you misbehave is a good thing. Personal liberty, freedom, and responsibility are totally lost on Milennial Democrats.
