Top Story: Young R’s Spurn KCRCC

JimmyMAC (RE: OfCoffee: Passed litmus test, but ...): Ofcoffee is spot on. IMHO It's the primary reason why there is such little participation from the younger generation in Kootenai County GOP politics. Many of us (at least the younger Republicans that I hang with) best identify with folks like Ofcoffee but choose to engage in outlets that we see as more productive and worthwhile. This is due to the circus-like atmosphere and all of the efforts being exhausted on pointless (and often times anti-growth, teetering on ant-capitalistic) measures. Personally, I find it tough to find better role models in town than many of these "establishment Republicans". Ofcoffee, Mark Fisher, Brad Corkill, Jack Riggs, Dean Haageson, etc-they are optimistic by nature, idea and solution focused, incredibly generous, compassionate and do not compromise their convictions. In essence, they are leaders that many of us 20 and 30 something's gravitate toward and the KCRCC could be well served by taking notice. Or they can do nothing.

Question: Is anyone listening on the Rally Right/UCNI end of the conservative spectrum?
