Re: “Boys State goes for Trump in a landslide

The comments are among the most cancerous statements I have ever seen. A liberal writer writes a semi-inaccurate description of boys state and you all immediately make generalizations about all the delegates and how they are ignorant and indoctrinated. Yes there are some who were very misinformed but there were also many on both the conservative and liberal side who were extremely intelligent and would put most of you to shame. I entreat all of these commenters to keep an open mind and realize that just because a person does not agree with your political it does not mean they are intellectually inferior or misinformed. Boys State builds community and encourages students to develop their own opinions. Boys State is an invaluable experience and claiming ignorance really only reveals the ignorance within yourself. I was there. Max's story is true but not complete. He did not share abou the respectfulness, brotherhood, and students who were informed and intelligent.
