17-year-old Kolby LaMarche named chair of Burlington GOP - Vermont Business Magazine

In a city with thousands of teenagers and college students eligible to vote in the 2020 election, Kolby LaMarche, a smart, strong conservative has been named to lead the Burlington Republican Party. The senior at Burlington High School has been active in GOP politics for many years. Hey, if they'll listen to 14-year-old Greta - why not to an old guy like Kolby? 

At only 17, LaMarche may be the youngest Town Chair in the state from either major party. Vermont law allows 17 year olds to register to vote if the will be 18 by the time of the next general election.  Under that provision LaMarche was eligible not only to participate in the Burlington meeting, but also become its new leader.

    I don’t personally know Kolby but we conservatives do know he’s swimming in Burlingtons piranha-infested political waters. He deserves tremendous credit just for jumping in and remaining committed and involved.

    Thank you to Kolby for stepping up to a big challenge, we need more 17 year olds with this initiative on our sidelines.

    A seed has been sown. Count me in. I’m tired of very well off individuals that have never sacrificed for their kids, if they ever had any, and are looking for a cause to make their lives meaningful. I’ve been to town meetings and have listened to climate change fanatics and social justice warriors. I have listened to world leaders and most don’t have children which should give you a clue that they are not well rounded individuals. They have nothing in common with the common man. They just have a need to control something and that something is the rest of you all. I want them to mind their own business and let families live in freedom and liberty. They force us to take vaccines for our own good but they legalize commercialized marijuana for our own good. I have a hard time with that philosophical view. Plants require plenty of CO2 and by limiting carbon emissions we are killing the planet that produces the oxygen we breath. It is a vital part of the cycle of life, a life that most Godless people will never understand because for them the end game is to cheat death and become God like themselves. The end justifies the means and that is why the Democrat Party has become anti-humanity. For them saving the world is synonymous with self aggrandizement. The Democrat Party has indoctrinated people from the womb, throughout public school, to college and beyond. Robots created in their image. I want to err. I want my God given right to chart my journey. I want acceptance and tolerance to be HUMAN. I see that vision in the TRUMP party. Traditional Republicans and Democrats have been opposite sides of the same coin for too long.
