Georgia Gentleman “schools” young liberal~C.J. Pearson
Who knew there even WERE young liberals around? It’s not like we hear much about them. There’s Young Americans for Liberty, and Young Americans for Freedom. Is there a liberal counterpart, like Young Americans for Dependence?
C.J.Pearson, you may recall is the young conservative who questioned Obama’s love of country…publicly. His Facebook page was shut down because of it. Free speech anyone?
Pearson is a young conservative to watch because of his passion, his intelligence, and because of another rare quality these days; keeping it “classy”.
We hope to feature much more from our youngest contributor, C.J. Pearson.
Following, is C.J.’s response to Madison Kimrey, whose letter is below C.J.’s:
First, I would like to commend you for your involvement and interest in our government. I would also like to commend you for speaking up for young people in North Carolina. We all deserve a voice and you have fought to give young North Carolinians that voice.
With all that being said, I would like to share a few words with you concerning the article you authored about me a few weeks ago. Regarding my locked Facebook account, I didn’t throw a public temper tantrum, but I brought light to an issue I felt was important. 7.5 million children under the age of 13 currently have access to their Facebook accounts, but I don’t? If Facebook really cared about this policy, why don’t they enforce all the time? I argued for consistency, not attention.
In your article, you also questioned the example I was setting for young people across the country. Madison, I’ve authored 2 pieces of legislation and introduced both, with the intent of empowering young people across the entire state of Georgia. I fought to lower the age to run for office because I believe in the capabilities of young people on both sides of the aisle. I believe they deserve a voice in our government. I don’t care about what they use their voice for but as long as they have an outlet for their views to be shared.
Lastly, you mentioned the potentiality of myself becoming a political prop. I can most definitely assure you that I will never allow any party to use me for their sole benefit. I stand for liberty and freedom for all Americans. Liberty has never been a partisan issue, but it just happens to be that conservatives are a lot better at fighting for it than the left.
Once again, I commend you for your involvement and look forward to seeing where the future leads us both.
