YoungSwedishBlonde: F*ck the Tea Party.


No thanks. I don't them remotely attractive.

If Americans of any age knew what was good for them they'd be standing with us in Occupy. fark the Tea Party.

ThePastafarian: 3_Butt_Cheeks: Young Americans only care about their iDevice, Xbox, how many friends or followers they have on Facebook or Twitter, and how they can be more like the Situation.

And ButtGuy demonstrates how right-wingers are out of touch with the youth of the nation.

That pompous A-hole John Boehner single-handedly instigated a downgrade of the American credit rating over a debt ceiling debacle of his own creation. Somehow, this doesn't seem good for the young people in this country.

This is partly why I'd like to see the Democrats get supermajorities in this country. They will have no more excuses for anything and the country will have 100% employment and cars that will run on unicorn farts instead of gasoline. At least that's what about 90% of fark believes.

I recall, shortly after Obama was elected, reading an article in which a tea party affiliated legislator put on a show in his legislative chamber. The show had a faux Obama whipping an elderly white woman who was saying "I'll get the money for the abortions massa, I'll get the money."

Then there are the signs that read something like "Tax payers are the jews in Obama's ovens."

I just can't understand why the tea party isn't more attractive to young voters.

If young Americans..in fact any Americans knew what was good for them, we would all,abandon these two corrupt political parties that manipulate and divide us for their gain. Sad. Their power at our expense.
 
2012-06-17 07:53:56 PM
It's kind of sad and funny to remember back when the Tea Party styled themselves as being "libertarian". They certainly got over that phase in a hurry.

Why the hell would I support a platform that guarantees no cuts for any of the baby boomers but massive cuts for everyone younger than them? The rest of my cohort and I sure as fark didn't cause any of the problems that brought the country to its knees, so why should we be the only people who pay for all of the solutions?

Oh, yeah, I remember... war in Iraq is great, and the British empire was hunky dory.

When polled young people generally expect no social security when they are old enough AND oppose any cuts right now that would reduce what they are paying. Its almost as if there are reasons other than naked self interest to vote a certain way.
Whoda thunk.

As the child of a Hispanic, single-mother immigrant, I have seen people dismiss her, boss her around, and treat her cruelly simply because of her "funny accent" and her tanned skin. I have also seen the looks they give her when it becomes revealed that she was a single mother who immigrated to the USA.

As an American in debt due to college expenses, I know what the consequences of increasingly right-wing policies in the past few decades have done to this country, and do my best to responsibly pay off that loan. As an educated individual, I have seen the GOP dismiss my concerns for the others entering this cycle as greedy, communist, and evil.

As an unmarried female whose life was actually saved by cheap and affordable contraceptives, I have observed the GOP criminalize me and other women as people that want a free ride, people that have no morals, and people who are Satanic.

As someone who has a lesbian family member who means so much to me, and I wish one day to be her bridesmaid as she walks down the aisle with her wife, I have seen the state of North Carolina tear her dream to pieces via the vile lies of "family values" and religion that is supposed to be separated from government to the 1st farkin' Amendment.

The day you see my name on a ticket that endorses a Republican candidate is the day I'm literally dead and those motherfarkers are committing voter fraud. With everything that I have seen in my lifetime, it'll be a cold day in hell that I vote Republican. They should be terrified, because unfortunately I'm not the only young voter that has been affected by this-- and their voter base is dying of old age.

Because we are outnumbered in the voting booths. Damnitall... why did the Boomers have to be the generation that stopped smoking and started getting Vaccinated for the flu?

/Not that I don't love my parents and all... but there's a circle of life thing. And them remaining IN the circle of life ensures that nobody my age or younger can afford to have kids...

I honestly think if you proposed this on free republic there would be a surprisingly large number of posters who would think this is a great idea.

Dingfod: Not everybody wants to put Grandma on the ice floe.


I actually have something relevant to this - for ten years, I made jokes about putting my mother on an ice floe when she got old. She thought I was joking, deep down I often felt serious. Actual acquisition of a St. Barnabas ice floe when the time came would be trickier, but.

Nonetheless, out of some mad survival instinct, when she and my father went to finalize a copy of their will, they specifically put in a clause. No ice floes, lest I forfeit my inheritance.

Well, damn.

There's nothing in there about volcano sacrifice, however. I still have options!

actually, that's the easiest part - just have Congress start writing laws that say 'corporations are not people' and nailing down the limits, rights and privileges of corporations. the GOP will scream bloody murder, of course....but meh.

it is only fair, the young need to see their taxes hiked to pay for all the tax cuts the boomers voted for themselves over the last 40 years.
