NYT: What Do Young Republicans Want?

The Times found four young Republicans — yes, four! — and asked them the above question in today’s “Room for Debate” piece. Here are their four suggestions:

Chris Christie Could Show the Path: Young conservatives must welcome a party that is inclusive of women, gays and immigrants.

Less Religion Equals More Voters: Republicans must embrace secular civic language if they have a prayer of winning young voters.

Governments as a Force for Good: The big government vs. small government and “makers” vs. “takers” argument isn’t appealing to millennials.

We Need a Better Message: Emphasizing immigration reform alone is simplistic and insulting to young Hispanic voters.

All are missing the greatest threat to the “young.” What about our debt? The country is broke and the kids don’t seem to care — or at least the four the Times found.
