Introduction

This is my latest hubbook and it is intended for Millennials. I grouped a few of relevant hubs into this simple guide. I hope it will help you in your future pursuits.

-Aug. 2015

Table Of Contents

This hubbook is a collection of my hubs that is aimed at millennials in specific. It is important that you get involved starting in the beginning of your career. Remember, time is on your side. As a conservative, I've been making the case that it is beneficial for all to adopt a conservative life style and to support conservatives in government. There are many distractions in the world. It is hard to focus on what is important for the long haul. However, if you start with the right mindset, the rest comes easy. By having clearly defined principles, the complexities of various issues become less confusing. My hubs includes topics ranging from politics to media to economy to religion to technology to helpful tips.

Let me leave you with one quote from President Ronald Reagan.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Summary

In summary, I believe the millennials are ready for a new conservative resurgence. What has worked before in the 1980's with the election of Ronald Reagan can work again in 2015. Let me bring up a final example to illustrate. Most millennials grew up in the post Reagan era. They have little knowledge of what Reagan did to bring America back. Instead, we have a dishonest press that try to re-write history. To this day, they demonize Reagan and his legacy meanwhile glorify the Clinton era. President Bill Clinton is the only modern president impeached by Congress for his high crimes and misdemeanor. Yet, today, the Clintons are more popular than ever, in spite of their corruption and numerous scandals. Hillary Clinton is the new Democratic candidate for President in 2016. Does this make sense to anyone? You don't have to take my word for it. Just do your own research. Check into the deeds of Reagan vs. Clinton. You decide who was the better leader for America.

      FCM, thanks for your comments. I must disagree on your assessment of both Reagan and Clinton. The significance or impact a President has on a country is huge. The Iran Contra affair or scandal is small compared to ending the cold war with the Soviet union. Don't you agree? On the other hand, Clinton's lies in office which lead to his impeachment was not just about sex...As much as the media wants to spin it, it was about the rule of law. He did many worst acts while in office which was part of "the high crimes and misdemeanor..." charge against him. Unfortunately, Ken Star focused on the Lewinsky matter. You can look it up. It is part of the impeachment of Clinton and his legacy. As a history teacher, I am sure you know the details and why it was a political matter that he was exonerated though he was guilty of many of the charges.

      As a history teacher, I appreciate your referral to American history and I agree that everyone, not just millennials, could use lessons in our nation's history. However you must admit that glorifying one president 100% and demonizing another is a really simplistic way of looking at a very complicated story. For example, you didn't mention Reagan's role in Iran Contra, which was arguably worse than the stupid lies that Clinton told in trying to cover up his affair with M. Lewinsky. Of course that's just the start but I trust you see my point.

      Look at trumps record breaking rallies; they are packed with millennials. Additionally, many are graduating with massive debt and are finding next to no jobs or are getting jobs that are keeping them underemployed.

      Polls, additionally, are useless. Look at how all the polls predicted that Trump would narrowly defeat Cruz, if he defeated Ted at all, and look at how, overall, Trump trounced cruz?

      I'm not sure what you mean by defined by the current GOP? Conservatism is a political and economic system of governing. No party can define anything. In fact, it is the failings of current GOP partly responsible for the mess we are in. It always puzzle me why people associate the GOP with conservatism when in fact, they have done just the opposite. Perhaps you need to check my hub on Conservatism principles. Tell me, honestly, if that represents the current GOP leadership.

      As for as realignment of the millennial generation toward conservativism as defined by todays GOP, I have not been able to corroborate your findings. But, I am with you, to each, his own.

      Caredence2, I actually am hopeful. In my discussions with some millennials, they tend to be more Conservative than some of their professors and parents. That's a good sign for me. I've given up debating some old folks like myself. They are too committed to listen to my arguments. It's a free country and let's keep it that way.

      I am not so enamored by Reagan and his record. I don't know about that conservative resurgence by millenials either. Trump does relatively poorly with voters under 35 while Sanders does exceptionally well. So what direction do you think that the winds are actually blowing?
