GunFreedomRadio EP313 Revival of Young Voters with Austin Smith
Our guest today is Austin Smith. Austin is the National Field Director of Turning Point Action, the sister organization to Turning Point USA and he is the Chairman of the Arizona Young Republicans.
Austin grew up hunting and fishing, and firearms have been a part of his life since he was born. He believes the second amendment is still the most consequential right we have to fight for every day.
1) You recently held a "Revival" meeting for AZ Young Republicans. To hear the "news" tell it, the words "young" and "Republican" are oxymorons. So, you put together a mixer, but it was a Friday night, and a decidedly Political event...and yet you had quite the turnout! Talk to us about that.
2) You were energizing people at the mixer to "get involved". What does that mean? Sometimes people like how that sounds, but they don't really know what to do or how to do it.
3) What is the greatest barrier to people standing up for their values and ideals? Do you think that young people have any specific obstacles to being civically active?
4) In the movie, Frozen 2, which maybe you haven't seen, but with us having granddaughters we tend to memorize their favorite movies "“ one of the characters is faced with a dilemma and sings about "doing the next right thing". Do you think there is a message in there for the rest of us? None of us an do EVERYTHING, so maybe just do one thing, even if it seems small?
