Dana Loesch & Young Conservatives Highlight Importance of Youth Vote to the Future of the GOP | TheBlaze.com

24-year old State Representative Michael Caldwell (R-Ga.), Amy Lutz of The College Conservative, Michelle Fields of Next Generation TV, and Brandon Morse of Misfit Politics all weighed in, tackling issues from trust to marketing to social media.

“We’ve got to be the party of risk takers,” Caldwell asserted. “We preach that we’re the party of entrepreneurship and free markets…yet somehow…we’re afraid to jump into new social media techniques. We’re afraid to jump in and talk to these college students who have historically voted Democrat…We’ve got to start taking calculated risks, or we’re never going to get out there.”

A frequent topic of conversation was how the GOP isn’t “giving people anything to get excited about.”

As one example, they pointed out that Democrat Party has supported a number of candidates who generate enthusiasm and excitement on a personal level. People get excited about the candidates. On the right, they said, people seem to be expected to support “the party,” regardless of the caliber of the candidates.
