How does one counter the conservatism that seems to overtake people as they age? [View all]
People become more risk averse. Less open. Less liberal. Anyone have any ideas how we can take this time of life change out of favouring the GOP hands?
So as people gain more life experience, ie. wisdom, they become more conservative, and you want to stop that?

1. I don't have a clue. The older I get, the more liberal I become.

Is there something wrong with me? Or is it just everybody else?...
Yes, it's you.

Everyone else then chimes in that as they got older they got more liberal. No shit? People posting in the echo chamber called DU are liberal? Color me effin shocked.
