#1 DUmmie asks "How does one counter wisdom?"12-10-2012, 06:23 AMapplegrove (56,523 posts)
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?

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?...
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.

63. My bf's aunt was a hippie and was a democrat almost her entire life.
She started becoming brainwashed by her new bf and she voted for Bush in 2000. After she got remarried she was never the same. She was such a sweet lady, who preached liberal values. Her husband is a racist right wing nut and now she is a stone cold teabagger, who absolutely despises Obama. It is depressing to see what happened to her. It makes me think that she never really was a liberal and only held those views because she was rebelling against her right wing parents.
Damn that bf!!!! Obviously part of teh BFEE!!!!

30. My mom was a Republican until Reagan ran
His warmongering scared her, and from then on she voted for Dems for president.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Liberalism wants kids to be kids as long as possible, because that means more votes, why else do you think they introduced child work laws they can't have a 13 year old actually earning his own money and being responsible that would make him "greedy".
