First, I’m not really a hundred percent sure that I am a Millenial or a Gen X’er… For the purposes of this topic though, I’ll go ahead and claim the Millenial title.
I’m a full time working mother of four children. I’m married (first time typing that!), and I changed my voter registration back to republican last year. Am I a republican? On most issues yeah, therefore I registered republican. Do I like the Republican Party? Not at the moment… And honestly, in the last twelve years since I became a registered voter, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been happy with my political party.
So there’s that.
Here’s the assumption I keep coming across, especially this week when our Colorado Caucus was held. I mention that fact that I went to my caucus when the topic comes up and the individual I’m talking to says “Oh, were you caucusing for Hillary or Bernie?”
“Um. Neither. Nor was I caucusing for Trump. At this point in the election process, I’m praying fervently for a Cruz and Rubio ticket.”
“What?! But… you’re… kind of… young…”
“Thank you? I’m also a hard worker that would really love to keep the majority of my income and a gun in my nightstand.”
If you’re one of those people that assume that every ‘young’ voter you encounter can be persuaded by student loan forgiveness and free stuff, STOP IT.
I cannot be bought.
I have a brain.
And there are more like myself out there.
Ask me what I stand for, ask me what kind of plan I would implement to turn America great again.
Because I have a few.
