Skip to comments.I’m a Young Black Man and I Support Donald Trump
Posted on 08/30/2016 7:20:14 AM PDT by simpson96
In the past 15 months, I have found myself supporting four different candidates for President: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders and now billionaire businessman and Republican Party nominee, Donald Trump. As a 14-year-old, I may not be able to vote in this election, but I am deeply invested in its outcome.
Some have ridiculed me for supporting various candidates across the ideological spectrum. In a condescending blog post last December, conservative radio host Erick Erickson accused me of desperately seeking attention, questioned my intellectual capacity and instructed me to shut up, and go live life. This reaction makes one thing clear: many people in the old guard do not have the slightest understanding of the political philosophies of my generation.
I believe that the future of America is post-party politics. I hope that in 10 to 20 years, the near constant issue of partisanship will be a distant memory.
The shift is already beginning. According to a 2014 Pew Research study, 50% of millennials identify as political independents. In 2004, that number was a mere 38%. Many people in my generation support the personregardless of political partywho they believe has the capacity and ability to lead. The future and stability of America are far more important than ego and party.
Thats why Ive decided to support Mr. Trump, and its my sincere belief that flocks of other young people will soon follow.
The independent streaks ingrained into the hearts and souls of Americas youth are the cornerstone of the billionaires youth appeal. The problems of Americas young folks are far bigger than Snapchat and emojisundeniable truths Hillary Clinton doesnt seem to understand. In the coming weeks and months, while Mr. Trump is releasing detailed policy proposals to deal with the issues plaguing young America, Clinton will likely still be doing what she seemingly does

Worth a read. (I could only post about half of it, due to word limit.)
There is a young man who wants an opportunity, not a hand out.
Better written than 99% of the stuff, put out so-called professional journalists.
This kid wrote this?
CJ IS BACK!!! This wonderful young man was run out of town about 6 months ago!!! He had done several you tube videos, he was on Fox several times!!!! He recieved death threats against him and his family and he WENT DARK so GREAT to have you back CJ!!!!
YES CJ wrote this, this young man is so AMAZING!!! I am SO GLAD he is NOT hiding any longer the left have threatened his life and his family’s lives CJ took his you tube accounts down and went dark, if you ever had the chance to hear him you would be AMAZED at the intelligence of this 14 year old I believe he is from Georgia he goes to school but most of his schooling is from home !!!!!
Just want to add both of his parents are DEMS!!!!!!
The writings of CJ and his ever changing opinions.
In time this young man could become a first rate intellectual... of the old school type. The University of Chicago needs to reach out... and bring him into the fold.
I feel sorry for any 14 year old who has to think about politics. He needs to enjoy a couple more years of his childhood.
Stay sheltered young man as long as you can. They lies of politics will overwhelm you soon enough.
I think he will be sadly disappointed.
WOW deport I had NOT seen all of these thank you for enlightening me!!!
Bharf. At least he's not out selling drugs, and he's trying to do some actual thinking.
