On the headlines today as good as -- is on the verge of doing something -- -- potentially into the beginning steps of a wider Middle East War.
GM people care about this survey stuff on -- -- kind of job interviews let me jump to you -- Well I think we we are excited and -- before in the greener and young -- I think young people can come together on both sides on Syria I mean obviously the economy is still number one concern.
But I don't I don't talk to single young person -- going to Syria either organized -- al-Qaeda are organized army a genocide -- dictator.
Picking sides in that fight does not make sense wasting taxpayer dollars is not make sense getting involved in another foreign conflict.
Does not make sense I think young people are very very frustrated on both sides of the aisle and I think that Republicans especially be wise not to be hawkish on Syria.
Trust me it's alienating young people I for one and definitely fighting for this one trying to not going to -- -- opposing president Obama's I don't know where he's gone.
And you know for five years in 2007 he said we shouldn't go in accomplished without congress' approval now he's trying to do and it's very frustrating.
What do you say that in our young people out what President Obama they turned out these numbers and is that it's the holy Grail of elections right how'd you get young people.
To register and how do you get -- to the polls President Obama did.
So are they going to back him if he does take military action in Syria with them probably -- expert -- -- -- no I think this is a difficult question for everyone wherever you -- of the political spectrum.
I think for young people that we have really grown up in the last 101112 years of war on foreign soil.
Mean no more young people we know our Brothers sisters neighbors were serving and we see those real facts -- and we see them -- -- even worse unemployment doesn't numbers when they get back.
So I think the fact that young people I've actually grown up in a time when where we constantly been at war there's a lot of fatigue around at -- like to see different time.
Do you think that it.
If President Obama does take military action a lot of the youth support that he's enjoyed in the past withers away.
I think the excitement around him disappears I mean I I I largely really has even have a lot of -- the last election.
I think people -- just kind of disappointed he came in really.
I was a lot of promise people thought he was a -- -- -- transparency -- isn't it really fix our foreign policy overseas.
And it seems like he's been a continuation of the bush bush foreign policies a lot of the fiscal policies that got us really.
And you a lot of the -- are facing both with that and foreign policy.
And so we want something different want something to change I think it really does bill very you know at 2014 and going sixteen for Republicans actually be able to.
Make our positions clear that we are not -- for going -- there were not for intervening.
-- foreign policy conflicts and zero cents.
Okay that wasn't that I never worry affect.
Sharon you know leadership comes -- taking bold moves and seeing outcome right there's not really clear outcomes here and so it's hard to know when that will be a real win.
So I do think that cut a little bit into your popularity around it.
A bit of things that you're the candidate Sam and political leaders of outside of the political -- say is -- our deficit our dad is ruining the opportunity for the next generation and I don't care you got a conservative Republican group for a liberal Democrat from -- and raise your hand.
How many do you think the life will be better for your children and it has been today.
He seems to think that so -- guess you don't know what else think that if I had about things like Medicare Social Security.
Are they willing to fix that broken system assuming they both think it's -- -- what do you go -- -- system.
Sure -- you know they love to but I think they're really just thinking about how -- they get a job tomorrow.
How -- they move out of their parents' house which has been a huge problem for young people and I think that we're seeing that over the last you know over the last decade or so.
A trickle down economics is really not worked for young people.
And a lot of policies that help young people get into the middle class and then it might even -- out of the middle class.
Are just being deteriorated and not getting a college has been traditionally the way that a lot of people get into the middle class and Steve the -- you the ability.
Access those loans and then pay them -- in a real way.
It didn't have extremely -- and really a burden and it mean if it's economically even pushed off a lot of those other economic markers that we look at in terms of buying a house -- -- -- series investment.
It's a serious problems of the economy as a whole.
Okay Ron I've got a question for somebody product posted -- my age than your age who says ask Ron.
What is it going to take to instill that hard work mentality an epic that the youth are lacking today.
Do you think they're lacking it and how do you think that they can addresses in congress.
It's not just a bunch of bounds.
No first -- -- -- not a -- -- I think that a lot of a lot of people is an older generation saying that about the younger generations I think that is somewhat true that people I'll have more -- that technology has done that but in other ways they're really not we have won the most entrepreneurial generation throughout they're trying to start small businesses online on the Internet really doing some really great -- But the problem is is that what we're doing right now.
It is with cottonwood with this utilized for instance we're giving people unlimited student loans so they're going to whatever cause they want when they're eighteen -- and they were we don't really understand that when they get out of college -- had to pay out all -- -- Essentially get the government is dreading a blank check to the higher education industry and leaving young people with the bill.
And so we're seeing is young people are graduating they can't find work in this economy we have not gotten economy we have high structurally and appliances Great Depression I'm glad to hear the Democrats on this are -- so to speak out I would like see somebody from President Obama on this.
But I think that's that's really the issue is trying to make sure we -- economic policies that actually -- young people -- under President Reagan for instance when he cuts accelerated tax reform youth unemployment -- from 18% to 10% by the end of his -- -- youth unemployment 43% I think is a good thing for Republicans to champion actually bring back those policies that -- work for young people -- -- young people back to -- A family you say that everybody's really concerned about getting out of my dad's bedroom and -- I'm getting a job getting her own place getting out of your life.
Do people do young people still think government's gonna help them do that.
Are they -- -- when you yeah you when you go policy by -- the millennial generation is very progressive and does the role of government in their lives.
But I think -- you know that one of the things Obama's talking about in terms of entrepreneurial let them if people have it in some -- disparate millennial generation.
But on these ideas but it acts.
-- really an asset you know young people they think that if it doesn't work for them they're gonna do it a different way they're gonna try a different way.
They think that you know they want -- working groups they connect to each other over the Internet -- that may not really look like where they are really connecting with one another ardent sharing ideas.
Coming up with new ideas and -- -- young people generally they want.
What's very important -- them.
It's a find meaning in their work so -- don't really compartmentalized work vs wade you connect with their country your government they want to do it all wants to.
Think it's estimated continues to have a role they got a president elected we've seen every election season have a bigger and bigger role you guys own social media.
What happens next.
I think social media -- -- part of whoa whoa -- these sort of bring the government yeah I don't agree with Gavin Newsom who is the lieutenant governor of California on anything is very liberal.
Both what did you agree is that we need better technology in government we need to have interactive.
Apps and things so got to be -- so we actually do we have a legitimate government government services whether it's on the local level or the federal level.
That we can react quicker that when congress as a bill that we can actually go to social media and see in -- life time what people are thinking on this bill and get live reaction to our constituents are thinking.
And I think that's -- type of technological advances that young people can be pushing in congress and outside of congress.
And I think that's what we're what our next generation is gonna bring a whole new level of interaction with government and people so they can actually make things more efficient and actually respond to things like Syria for instance in a better way I mean if you look at all the balls that are coming out.
We have been a young people I think in 90% against Syria and so we actually had a better way to interact with government on this I think it would help us with -- Process -- I.
I don't care -- -- right up.
Pushed back a little bit further I think it's important that we have interact we'd interact with the government but we're not gonna get it with the people that we have elected right now if they don't even really understand the technology that's out there how can we be opening up government -- -- we really need to go.
We -- the young people all our.
So I don't look I was there right now that -- I'll be closely following your campaign the -- amazing use of social media.
I tell you been so fun for me I think if you are the new generation I am very happy to hand things off to you and what I want to say -- sorry running.
-- -- -- I would love to see you challenged him an election and I would -- that -- that -- -- -- would have around the state of Virginia.
-- -- -- It needed to Virginia an enemy had gotten maybe it's a veteran British -- -- for a lot.
How much -- and family says that he Atlanta and Rob -- bestseller about viewing -- but you're terrific work of serving your country thanks.
