Campus Progress's Erica Williams explains why young people and conservatism don't mix in a critique of a new video created by Young America's Foundation Spokesman Jason Mattera. Mattera attempts to explain why conservatives have had a difficult time attracting young people of late. He says it's not about ideas, but rather money--that is, the enormous sums he argues that liberals are spending to foster progressive student activism. But, in this video, Williams argues that Mattera doesn't understand his peers and is wrong to credit George Soros with the current resurgence of student activism.
