    Its the Democrats who screwed themselves on this one. Its kinda hard to pass ideas to the next generation when you abort them before they are born.

    But I dont want to devolve this into an abortion discussion. I think the Democrats are in for alot of problems. Sure there are alot of dumb young people out there who believe them cause they say something but the more my generation and those a decade behind me learn to think for ourselves the less we will be inclined to follow Democrats. Unless of course the Democrats totally reform.

    Yep Avatar, you seem to be on the same line. You're in your early 20's right? That to me seems to be the beginning of the trend. If I'm hearing the kids over the past 3-5 years, they are getting more conservative in their personal actions. They also are cynical of politicians of any stripe, but seem willing to hold them accountable also. They are not heartless, just practical. Thus perhpas a tendency towards conservative libertarian?
