-- focus on the youth vote and young people -- -- this number.
Of people aged sixteen to nineteen no -- but still they come out and rose to present Obama.
Joining the company now from Chicago is Charlie Cook.
Turning point USA and independent student organization.
Of the of the young youth vote -- for President Obama I say they have an entitlement.
A -- and expect a high paying job.
They expect the high paying job that matches that intellectual that several college qualifications.
They won't take anything else they have an entitlement mentality a new -- Is very much so I'd have to agree -- -- that the young people from up.
From the beginning of one again elementary school everybody gets a trophy nowadays there is no failing anymore in schools and people young people are not thought the attendance of merit and hard work.
And even in college they get loans or their parents who pay their way through college -- on their parents' health care plans hope they're 26.
And they don't understand what it's like to have a job.
In work environment -- have to provide for themselves and I think everything is free and everything will be for them no matter what the economic climate it's.
Well we've been looking closely at this labour participation.
Rates in the number of drop outs.
It looks like a news we know for a fact that the largest contingent to drop out he's young people.
It's older people are actually increasing that participation in the work force the youngsters that a -- that a dropping out.
I want to know if you think this is gonna change and how it's gonna change.
The only way really could change is if we reform some policies that are making young people less likely to work.
Look at obamacare now that young people can say and their parents plan -- 26 it gives them another excuse another reason to stay at home.
And not find work and also look at some of the minimum wage laws throughout the country it's almost impossible for employers the -- young people and minorities.
-- -- minimum wage law has lots of good intentions but the good intentions don't necessarily.
Translating to good public policy -- people can't find the internships and can't get the resources they need to succeed in the job market.
I think you that you making a lot of sense but I ask -- this.
Do you think you could get elected to any office in the United States the market today if you -- right would allow the minimum wage or abolish it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Could you get elected.
You know I'm not always about what's elect poorly favorable but I'll tell you that's a way not to get elected -- to talk about only social issues that we have a real fiscal conversation in this country.
And not do it Aiken and Murdoch -- and talk about free market ideals the morality of capitalism.
We're gonna start to see people understand that we're talking about facts social issues -- -- cloud that your issues in this country.
I would I I believe that if governor Romney talked about fiscal issues but the real solutions.
And not have the social issues cloud.
The tenants of the campaign that women very different and you know it's not always -- electorally favorable we need to have worked sixteen trillion dollars and that we need real reforms.
Before our country goes truly bankrupt.
Charlie is Monica Crowley and I agree with you on the -- dependency picture because the objective of the Democrats over many decades but certainly the current Democratic Party.
Is to expand -- got a government is far and as fast as possible be objective of that.
Is to expand dependency on government as fast as possible and the ultimate objective of that is to create a permanent Democrat voting majority.
So if they can get to the kids and lock them into dependency early.
Then they've got them for life.
Absolutely and look at -- college student loans they're trying to make it easier and expansion in the kids don't understand.
That their money has to come from somewhere as one of my friends puts it.
I got my free Obama money to go to school and it makes me sick because they don't understand that somebody has to pay for it.
Kids overwhelmingly support free contraception but nothing in life -- free -- insurance company has paid for the taxpayer.
And it's being ingrained in -- -- unless we have true reform and first our schools and all the parents are raising their kids we're gonna see the dependency grow and grow in the entitlement culture become permanent like Europe the last one.
You're young men you surrounded by people of these -- of the same age when you come out -- until like you're talking now what's the reaction.
A lot of them are stunned that never heard it before especially from teachers all across the country.
They've never heard the tenants of capitalism preach in our schools and that's what our group turning point USA is doing a -- on doing I'm going to lecture halls and high schools.
And it's about talking about the morality of capitalism -- -- morality of government dependency.
And I truly believe that young people want to be free people want to be our young people want to make their decisions and because of that there's hope.
If you -- -- come to new you'll -- -- -- on the set with those -- as we like -- have to say Charles Cook -- one good stuff indeed thank you.
You wanna I don't think of that.
