Young Voters

* Hey! Are you a voter under the age of 35? The Republican Party is hoping that you don't notice a few things about their organization. 

A research project authorized by the Republican Party has been reported by Raw Story:

“For the GOP to appeal to younger voters, we do not have to agree on every issue, but we do need to make sure young people do not see the Party as totally intolerant of alternative points of view,” the report said. “Already, there is a generational difference within the conservative movement about issues involving the treatment and the rights of gays — and for many younger voters, these issues are a gateway into whether the Party is a place they want to be.”

The document suggested that the party would not budge on its opposition to same sex marriage and other LGBT rights, but “that does not mean we cannot come together on the rest of the issues where we do agree.”

On Sunday, Priebus told CBS News that he was focusing on cosmetic changes like having less debates, earlier conventions, “hackathons” and year round “marketing.”

The Republican Party will remain the same intolerant group of rich white guys, but they will try not to talk about abortion, marriage equality, equal pay for women, improving public education, rights for workers, increasing the minimum wage, or other hot topics. They will put lipstick on a pig with glitzy celebrity endorsements, flashy ads, pretty pictures of children and puppies all in hopes that you can be easily convinced that the Republican Party really cares.  Will you buy into their b.s.?
