“US kids are becoming active in politics”

Young Americans are becoming disillusioned by the two-party system and want a change, say Rachel Kania and Shaun Bowen, members of the Young Americans for Liberty movement.

“What we need is to stop people voting for parties just to vote for parties – they need to start looking at these candidates, seeing their voting records, seeing what they are doing, seeing what they are actually saying and voting for Democrats just because you are a Democrat – there a whole bunch of people out there – the Greens, the Libertarians, the Workers’ Party. They are offering different messages than these two parties,” Shaun Bowen says.

US youth are seeing what is coming down the road and they want to get involved, he added.

As for the Democrats and Republicans, they are just increasing the size of government, Rachel Kania said.
