Senior conservative movement is integral to saving our country

Once again Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, said she and her team will bring senior issues to the 2024 Conservative Political Action Conference to be held Feb. 21-24 in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. And she’ll be streaming interviews from CPAC on her AMAC’s Better for America podcast.

“CPAC is an opportunity for AMAC to promote legislative initiatives that strengthen our nation, our association’s membership and American citizens, at large, in the quest for solutions to the challenges of the 21st century,” said Weber. “We have hope and have committed ourselves to the enhancement of the American way of life, despite the challenges from politicos who are determined to upend our nation. We’ve come a long way in the less than two decades since AMAC came into being. In that short span of time, we have proven that the senior conservative movement is integral to saving our country. Our nation’s elders have an important role to play in the future of America in the coming years and decades.”

Weber noted America’s seniors are a powerful force. She pointed out that Harvard University tells us that “34 percent of the US population is aged 50 and over, and their numbers are rising rapidly with the aging of the baby-boom generation.”

Meanwhile, she explained, growing numbers of young adults are becoming politically conservative.

In fact, she noted, “a Gallup survey last summer found that more Americans this year (38 percent) say they are very conservative or conservative on social issues than said so in 2022 (33 percent) and 2021 (30 percent).

At the same time, the percentage saying their social views are very liberal or liberal has dipped to 29 percent from 34 percent in each of the past two years, while the portion identifying as moderate (31 percent) remains near a third. The last time this many Americans said they were socially conservative was 2012, during a period when consistently more U.S. adults identified as conservative rather than liberal on social issues.”

Donald Trump will attend this year’s CPAC gathering, say those in the know.

As the organization chairman, Matt Schlapp, tells us “CPAC is not neutral on Donald Trump. We’re all in.” In fact, Schlapp predicts that he “is going to break the records and come to CPAC for his 14th appearance.”

Weber said, “It’ll be the highlight of this year’s gathering.”
