Yeah the degree to which we are witnessing a significant inter-generational struggle is underplayed. I constantly come back to this AOC interview in Rolling Stone

She makes good points there but the fact of the matter is old people are voting their peers into office and millennials aren’t. Until people 30 and under vote the old folks will hold the power.

Millennials started in 1981-82 so the oldest of us are now 37-38.

And I'm one of the youngest at 23, so acting like millennials aren't old enough to be politically active seems like a take stuck in 2012

I have to agree (one of the oldest millenials) that you missed the point, we aren't active enough. The issues our group want are mostly not on the table due to under-representation, and that is our fault. I volunteered for get out the vote in the 2000's while I was a student 1/

And it was pathetic. Last election when I went to caucus it was looking a little bit better, but still sad compared to what it should be. We should be throwing our weight around and getting what we want for our future! (Because it is here)

Agree. Born same year too. I always thought we'd be good bc the hippies would be running govt when we were grown. Instead we got this horde of selfish & disconnected money grubbing heathens.

Kind of crazy how us Gen Xers have to root for our kids to dig us out of this mess.

Wouldn’t be the first time someone thought of that as a potential solution: Isaiah 11:6 “And a little child shall lead them...”

The “them” in that passage are animals, wild & domestic. “Wolves will live with lambs. Leopards will lie down with goats. Calves, young lions, and year-old lambs will be together, and little children will lead them.” Isaiah 11:6 -

That is true, of course, if your read the passage only literally. However, Isaiah and many other prophets, Jesus included, speak in metaphor and parable, which must be interpreted on many levels.

"Treats Republicans like buffoons" instead of: "treats the Republican leadership like buffoons" is how the left loses elections again and again. You need some independents and moderate Republicans to vote for you if you are going to win anything, plus have any real mandate.

Every single democrat running is markedly more qualified than 45. If “moderate republicans” would vote for 45 over any one of the Dems, they aren’t moderate.

Spot on. They just blindly vote Red. Then again many of the younger Republicans simply where not around to see Trump and his Lifestyles of the Rich and famous grand douchery

I assert they are not blindly voting Red, but clear eyed voting White.
