Deadline Extended

Know a young conservative who should be on Red Alert's 2015 '30 Under 30' List? Nominate them by May 29.

Red Alert endorses Mitt Romney

Today Americans will go to the polls and decide the next President of the United States. Will you be there? You should be.

Your vote is important in this election. Neither candidate’s campaign has discounted the your vote — and neither should you. Ads, college campus visits, conference calls, free concerts and other strategies specifically targeted at you all make it clear you are part of an important demographic in this election.

You might think this election is only about the next four years. It’s not. This election is about the future of America for generations to come. Decisions we make now will determine whether our nation remains the strongest country in the world decades from now or loses its status as the leader of the free world.

President Barack Obama said as a candidate in 2008 that he would make college more affordable for young people. But as we all know, that never happened. Now he says he’ll cut the growth of tuition rates in half, but he has no plan to accomplish it.

The youth jobless rate is at its highest sustained level since WWII. Those young people who do have jobs are often underemployed, working at the local coffee shop rather than in their field of study.

When asked on MTV what he could realistically offer young people in a second term, the President had no answers.

Obama has had his shot at the presidency, and he blew it. It’s time to elect someone with the business experience to get America back on its feet and out of debt — and Red Alert Politics believes that candidate is Mitt Romney.

Considering that President Obama is struggling to recapture the high percentage of the youth vote he won during the 2008 election, this generation seems to be getting the picture.

Your vote could swing the election. So, today make sure your vote lands in the bottom of a ballot box.
