Jonathan Krohn: Young Conservative Speaks at CPAC

Jonathan Krohn is a 13 year old homeschooler who is making a name for himself in conservative circles. He just recently published a book entitled Defining Conservativism. He wrote the book because he believes that their is a lot of confusion over what the term "conservative" means.

His short definition is
What is a Conservative? Since this is what we are going to discuss in-depth
in the book, I will give you the basic definition of a Conservative. A
Conservative is someone who believes in
1. Life
2. Personal Responsibility
3. Less Government .
4. The Founding Principles
These are the basic principles of Conservatism, but they each require an
individual in-depth analysis.

Jonathan also spoke at CPAC briefly. He didn't take on Obama, or even former President Bush. He didn't take on the fiscal conservatives or the social conservative, but simply gave a very clear explanation of what it means to be a conservative. A number of people have joked about this person as a future RNC Chair, U.S. President, or other elected official. While no one knows what political office this young man will hold, if you watch the video it is very clear that he has a bright future ahead of him.
