Young Cons’ Josh Riddle and Dave Ruffle (Dartmouth College ’12) released an enlightening video on the toll exorbitant debt has on our generation.
They won 5th place in the Power Line Blog contest:
Number five was submitted by the Young Cons, two rappers (and basketball players) from Dartmouth. Their video features lots of quick cuts as they interview students and a soldier. The cons themselves take the stage at the end. It is an impressive piece of work that rivets your attention even though it was one of the longer videos in the competition. Where can you see it? Courtesy of Andrew Breitbart and John Nolte at Big Hollywood, of course.
Watch the video here, which is featured on Power Lline Blog:

It is time to be ballsy, GOP. Stand up to Obama and expose him for who he is: a Marxist-Leninist community organizer.
Grow a spine and solve our fiscal problems! My generation counts on you guys to lead. Be leaders or expect to be fired.
Watch the video from Congressman Joe Walsh here:
President Obama, quit lying. You know darn well that if August 2nd comes and goes there is plenty of money to pay off our debt and cover all social security obligations.

“Somewhere in our growing up we began to be aware of the meaning of days and with that awareness, came the birth of patriotism. July Fourth is the birthday of our nation. I believed as a boy, and believe even more today, that it is the birthday of the greatest nation on earth.” — President Ronald Reagan
On this 4th of July, let us all come together to celebrate this nation’s birth and our independence from Britain.
Today, we must celebrate our freedoms, our Constitution, our laws, our traditions, our Founding Fathers, and the things that make this country great. Whether you’re BBQ-ing, swimming in the pool, attending a parade, watching fireworks, spending time with family, etc., give thanks to this great nation.
God Bless the USA!
