I am 57 years old
Dr. Pauls message is not just for the young. It's for everyone.
The MSM is trying to play the message off as a young vs old thing, and I think the Ron Paul campaign is buying into that too much.
I am almost offended each time I hear Ron Paul say that the youth are excited about the message of freedom, while not saying "also", as in like other freedom minded "individuals" of all ages.
Is Ron Pauls following a Youth Group? No, it's about individuals and individual freedom. Don't let the media play the "group" card, because that only causes a divide between young and old.
I agree that the older generation is waking up slower than the younger generation, now that his message is being heard. But, that is to be expected since the older generation has had the influence of the MSM and other propaganda for a longer period of time. But I will also say that once the older generation wakes up to the right message and "get's it", there is no stronger hatred for what has happened and how they have been lied to for so long (this from experience). Once the anger is brought under control, then comes the "How am I going to dedicate my life to doing something right about it". Remember, we have children and grandchildren that we feel very strongly about protecting and serving.
I would suggest that Ron Paul find a way to praise the youth, but include the older generation very strongly and he will see more of the older generation taking a look at him. And, as it has been said, "Once you go Paul, you can't go back".
