“I think it was naive. It’s a 13-year-old kid saying stuff that he had heard for a long time… I live in Georgia. We’re inundated with conservative talk in Georgia… The speech was something that a 13-year-old does. You haven’t formed all your opinions. You’re really defeating yourself if you think you have all of your ideas in your head when you were 12 or 13. It’s impossible. You haven’t done enough.” Former Conservative Boy Wonder Jonathan Krohn
Krohn is now a liberal and the above quote pretty much summarizes why most conservatives remain conservative. Un-formed opinions. Check. Blindly repeating conservative talk. Check. Naive, self-defeating, pre-teen views of the world. Check. Then when you actually experience the world, you wake up. That covers it.
Just a reminder of the younger more naive Krohn. Note all of the older and still naive people cheering for him:
Maybe John Roberts is experiencing a similar epiphany.
