Hillary and Bernie Lead the Children Revolutionaries

  
I am completely dumbfounded by the 83% majority of the under-30 vote in New Hampshire and 84% in the Iowa caucuses going for Sandford. I have tried to explain the insanity as being due to poor education, left-wing professors or even helicoptering parents. But a WSJ op ed gives another explanation.

As I was reading the article, I remembered my generation who lived through the great depression. In spite of calling us the greatest generation, I have to admit, that we panicked and we did vote in socialism in the form of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Without mentioning that era, the writer does point out that "the millennials can’t be faulted for being anxious about their economic prospects. They are coming of age in the weakest economy in generations. The underemployment rate (measuring those working a job for which they’re overqualified and underpaid) for young adults below age 30 is 60%." College degrees get them jobs at McDonalds and they have horrendous loans to pay off. They got cheated.

"The college graduate living in his parents’ basement and working a marginal job to service a student loan is by now an archetype of the Obama era." "Why wouldn’t young voters want "free stuff" paid for by the rich, as the Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton narrative promises?"

The writer also reminds us that they were in elementary school when the socialist countries such as USSR collapsed, so they don’t have the same awareness we do. But, still it is incumbent on those who know these things to try to explain to them that socialism will absolutely guarantee they will never have the future they long for. And we have to fight Bernie and Hillary with all our might for shamelessly helping the kids get their revenge.Wall Street Journal

These smart young citizens don't get their news from the extreme right wing propaganda sites you and fellow conservatives do. These young citizens are not buying the fear and hate being sold by Evangelicals and Tea Party know nothings. Millennials think President Obama has done a great job and would reelect him for a third term if it were legal.

DREX!
Where have you been? I'm still waiting on you to direct me to the liberal blog where you will "defend progressive values." I made that request some time back and you disappeared!

Only caveat is that it cannot be WW because ole' jw censors conservatives -- you liberals can't handle be challenged, as indicated by your own reticence to respond with specific answers to specific questions here. I think it was just a dodge...

Couple of losers.

Don't see much on either site that recommends them for anything other than a rubber room or a cell.

Well, I went to the Bernie Sanders link, clicked on comments to announce my arrival so I could challenge you to "defend progressive values" and here's the message I received:

"The comments to this entry are closed."

Wouldn't it just be easier to show us your vaunted "defense of progressive values" here, where we already are, and where blogger allows us to post freely? Why send me off to a tightly controlled blog where criticism of progressive "values" are censored? Why the need to censor in the first place? Why do you claim that, since this is a conservative website, you are free to criticize conservatives, but refuse to respond to criticism of or defend liberalism, claiming that you will do so on some vague "progressive" website that you probably just googled so you could post something, and that doesn't allow a free exchange of comments? You've got nothing, you know you've got nothing, and you're trying to hide it by sending us down rabbit holes.

Loser.

And can you direct me to one of the articles on either of those blogs where you have already been commenting, "defending progressive values?" I didn't think so...

Democrapus Perplexed,

Don't take credit for what I did. I chased DRex off by demanding he direct me to a liberal website where he would defend progressive values. It was then that he disappeared. And now, he's gone again after trying to pass off two sites where he has never posted and I called him on it. Same with Happily Married, who hasn't been back since I asked why a compromise on restrooms was unreasonable. No answer - gone.

I blush that you are fighting over me. Kisses!!

Not fighting, just laughing at what a fool you are.

Looks like Democrapus Perplexed is reeling from a multi-point thrashing!! Sorry, Anonymous, didn't realize you'd bulldozed Democrapus as well. It's sort of like the weak dog in the pack who is continually brutalized - hard to tell who does it!! LOL.
