"Increasingly, these young people are voting more and more Democratic. Of course, liberal Democrats have always enjoyed the majority of the youth vote - what little there was. But today’s socially conscious youth are making up an increasing percentage of the electorate and are going to play a larger role in certain elections.
Conservatives don’t do well with young people because they are seen as part of the older generation and not tuned into the needs of others. Conservatives are seen as misers who only care about their own affairs, their own businesses, their own retirement funds, etc....."
...to which I posted a rather lengthy comment, included below. However, upon revisiting United Liberty this evening I found that my comment has been deleted. So, I reposted it just now, prefaced by the following statement:
"This morning I posted the following comment (below) to this blog. This evening I found that it has been deleted.
To the best of my knowledge, I have documented the claims that I have made pertaining to Matt Chancey, Doug Phillips, et al; if anything that I have said is false, I invite you refute it.
But if what I have stated is true, why delete it?"
We'll see how long it lasts this time.....
This morning, I wrote,
To begin with, during Matt Chancey's recent run for office in Alabama, it was revealed that Matt Chancey opposes women’s suffrage on religious grounds:
Matt Chancey and his wife Jennie believe that it is a sin (or at the very least, is highly inadvisable) for women to vote, hold political office, attend college, or work outside the home. These views are expounded upon at great length on Jennie Chancey’s website,Ladies Against Feminism.
Apparently, in the Chancey household’s ideal world, fathers would vote for the household, and all daughters would live at home “serving their fathers“ until the time of their arranged courtship and marriage, at which time they would pass from their father’s ownership into their husband’s possession, thus assuring that they would never have the chance to vote; theoretically, any adult sons living at home would be similarly disenfranchised.
Certainly women COULD vote under such a system if they were the heads of their own household, but the only time that this would happen would be when a woman was widowed, and then only until such time as she remarried or moved in with an adult male relative.
Matt Chancey is also on very intimate terms with Doug Phillips, the president and founder of VisionForum Ministries, a major homeschooling curriculum company. Doug Phillips is described by Matt Chancey as being his dear friend and mentor, while Phillips in turn praises as his own intellectual hero one of the most virulent racists of the 19th century, Robert L. Dabney; Phillips has authored a book , Robert Louis Dabney: The Prophet Speaks.
Like his cohorts Doug Phillips, Nathaniel Darnell, Justin Turley, Peter Bradrick, and other Vision Forum afficianados, Matt considers the Confederacy to be the most "Christian" nation to ever exist.
History texts sold by VisionForum are revised in order to portray the South as the protagonist of the Civil War; not surprisingly, many young folks who have been educated using VisionForum materials are associated with Southern secessionist movemnts, and many hold views like this:"Hey there! Do me a favor please, check out my latest blog post and vote for Matt Chancey for Man of the Year. Spread the word; we need him to win!!! He's a good Confederate. :-) ...Spencer"
This particular young man also has a blog, Books, Bones, Bricks, and Bullets, where he describes himself thusly:"My name is Spencer. I'm 20 years old, a Bible-believing Christian, and I live in California. I am many things. I trust my savior Jesus Christ above all else, and strive to follow Him unceasingly. My soul is that of the warrior's, and I seek to fulfill my duties as such. I am science-minded, and am pursuing a career in dinosaur paleontology. I am for my God, and His Word, the Holy Bible. I am for the literal six-day interpretation of the Creation account as found in the book of Genesis. I am for my country and its military, and I will give my support to those who defend this nation and its people, even if it means that we are forced to wage war. I am for homeschooling, the rights of parents and the unborn, the Biblical family, and courtship. I am for the rights of gun owners, and believe in carrying. I am for martial arts, and advocate the study of those means necessary to protect the family, the faithful, and the defenseless. I am for the dying ways of chivalry; "Women and Children First!" is a creed well worth dying for. I am for conservatism, and did I mention that I'm also a states' rights Confederate flag-waving Rebel? This is me. Welcome to my blog.
Wow. 'Nuff said...
