As a lot of you know, I have twin sons who will turn 22 this summer.  They are both very savvy in current matters and very conservative.  Their core group of friends, even more so.  It is very refreshing to have serious conversations with these young adults. 
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

All three of my sons are conservatives. One grandson, age 22 is iffy, another, age 22 is conservative. Then two who are 27 & 28,  are conservative, which makes me happy.
