Rand Paul Embracing Youth Culture And Going Where No Other Politician Has Gone Before

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is one of Washington’s only politicians willing to embrace youth culture and revitalize politics for young people who have a sour taste in their mouth about government.

As a way to get young people on board with his 2016 presidential announcement on April 7, Paul is hosting about 40 karaoke events throughout the country.

The events are called “Liberty Karaoke” and libertarian and conservative youth are expected to make the events a total hit, winning over more youth support for Paul.

Paul is not new to embracing youth culture, but the karaoke idea is just another stroke of genius that the Kentucky conservative has had while preparing is highly-anticipated run for the presidency.

Just last month, Paul attended South by Southwest (SXSW) to talk about government phone-tapping of private citizens and invasion of privacy issues.

And, Paul has created an entire presidential campaign via Snapchat, the mobile app that all young people cling to interact with their friends.

Additionally, Paul is the only Republican in Washington to make a point to get his “government is not the answer” message to young, black Americans, speaking at liberal colleges and traditional¬†African American universities.

Paul’s commitment to winning over those disenfranchised with politics, Washington and the federal government, will only give him the leverage he needs to beat out the other Republican candidates like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Paul walks to the beat of his own drum and youth are bound to realize that this is not your usual, parents’ Washington politician.
