He seems to be the new political Justin Bieber. He's just parroting every right wing pundit on the radio- talking so much without really saying anything at all.

Lol. We've discussed this a long time ago.

Jonathon Krohn's voice is terribly annoying. He writes a book that misdefines conservatism (only a movement of returning to old policies) and gets a huge fanfare. He ticks me off.

What I don't understand is he's only 15. Why is he dedicating his entire life to politics when he should be out with friends and getting laid?

...Like a normal kid. He may not have had friends before he reached the public eye and this was a welcome alternative.

Via Wikipedia:
"An IQ test Krohn took in the first grade indicated he was gifted. He attended Christian schools until 2007, when his parents began to home-school him."

That explains everything. Poor brainwashed kid.
Fun, off-topic fact: I attended a private, evangelical Christian school for Junior High. There I learned that fossil record is a lie because the "swirling flood-waters theory" (The Great Flood/Noah's Ark) scrambled all the geological layers of rock.

Krohn paid to have the book published from his own savings.

Summary: he's rich.

This kid is gonna get a Ph.D in being an asshat and go on to being the next Glenn Beck.

He better not be relevant in ten years though. I really don't want to hear from him again.

Well Beck never went beyond high school. That's part of his self-professed appeal to "average, hardworking Americans." It sure shows.

An interesting topic. The main point here, which you all are beating around, is that the child is simply too young to have naturally evolved these opinions he is espousing. To talk in such general terms (e.g., "respect for life") requires you to live first. Other talents, like music, do not require this. So, while this child is clearly gifted, he does not fit in the same category as, say Sungha jung [www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4CR3GoB3YY]. While both children are gifted, politics is not something you can just...be a savant at. The fact that educated, intellectual minds disagree on politics is a testament to this. Politics really requires an interdisciplinary understanding of culture, economics, law, morality, business... The list goes on. Conservatism is (or, more precisely, should be) a theory which encapsulates a lifetime of experience, a ubiquitous understanding of rigorous disciplines, and a seasoned mind full of real-life experiences and trials. It belongs to a class of theories which are not about intelligence, but wisdom. And yeah, I wish I was 12 so I could kick the sh11 out of this kid and make him experience some of the things I had to go through at his age which he obviously hasn't.
Master P is the end result of capitalism.

I was considering doing the exact same thing when I was his age in fact a year younger than him had I had the time the dedication and the capital I totally would've done it

I wonder how he would do in a debate against someone on this site

JONATHAN KROHN IS A REPUBLICAN NOT A CONSERVATIVE.
Srsly Volkov, Lil Jon made that pretty clear.

Also, wjm's comment gets 10/10.

And by Republican, I mean conservative. And by conservative, I mean Republican.

Just in case the sarcasm/caps lock didn't make it obvious.
