They will be remembered by their survivors as a generation who could be counted on to show up at the polls in great numbers to protect their Social Security and Medicare entitlements, at the expense of everyone younger. But, as their old and sickly protoplasm gradually putrefies and expires, their children and grandchildren will have grown increasingly weary of big government. We will no longer be an aging society and there will be a renewal of the American spirit. Once this crop of grasping seniors is gone, this will become a great country again.

Amazing, you have it totally, completely backwards, conservatism will die out as the younger generations take over.

You really don't know who votes how?

I have to disagree with you. The younger generations are going to be footing the bill for all of the senior handouts (Social Security, Medicare) that will be doled out to a population of seniors that is currently growing in their number and in their avarice.

I think that when they're done paying for this huge glut of seniors, the younger generation will be desperately longing to exchange what will be their stifling high tax rates for the fresh air of some more liberty in their lives. Until this crop of seniors is gone, it's going to continue to be "gimme, gimme, gimme" and "pay me 'til I tell you to stop."

The sooner that this current generation of seniors is gone, the sooner that America can become America again.
