Zeno-25: I consider myself more Gen Y than Millennial, since I can barely remember life without computers at home and the internet. That means I was also old enough to have some idea of what was going on politically after 9/11, and while I supported it at the time, came to see what a disasterous decade of Republican rule the oughties were after a good few years. The GOP and neoconservatives took full cynical advantage of how farked in the head this country was after 9/11 and used it to take this country to the precipice of fascism, they took us the full way to disaster when it came to starting the war in Iraq and their stewardship of the economy.I may not always pull the lever for a Democrat when I vote, but I will never vote for a Republican for the rest of my life unless they fundamentally reevaluate their economic platform and throw out their hateful base of ignorant backwoods Bible bumpkins. The opposite is actually occurring.
Serious Black: johnnieconnie: At first I thought that he was going to make a potentially reasonable argument that the younger generation was no longer going to forgive the politicians for their idiot statements, like anti-gay, or anti-minority, and vote for them anyway (like Log Cabin Republicans). However, it soon became clear that his point was that the younger generations have descended into hedonistic, sinning hell, and are in danger of being lost forever for embracing single motherhood (instead of having evil abortions, amiright?), teh ghey, and miscegenation, etc.If Republicans really want to stop abortion, they can do one of two things:1) Lower the cost (to zero for some people) of long-lasting birth control like IUDs that have been proven to dramatically reduce the rate of unintended pregnancies and abortions.2) Raise the pay of people in poverty since richer people have been proven to have dramatically reduced rates of unintended pregnancies and abortions, almost certainly because they can afford long-lasting birth control like IUDs.
