I was going to give a arbitrary retort but I found myself agreeing with most of the points. The GOP, like every other party, has many baby boomers in it and for the most part they are the ones who are cautiously politically correct. They are the me, me, me generation and IMHO it is the reason there is much back stabbing, CYAsness in DC because it is all about the "ME". It is the PC culture that they were raised on that has brought appeasement at all levels of government. Sorry if I digress but it is my personal opinion. Let's hope the next generation will produce stronger willed individuals (If you are a Baby Boomer no offense)
Very good points slowhand520. I agree.

Well I am a "boomer" and I don't take personal offense.
However it seems shallow, at best, to lump us all into a "blame them group".
Those who lead have been dividing us into smaller and smaller groups, all at each others throats for a piece of the pie, for so long now. And we follow, blindly. To the extent, that we have almost all, willingly, become some type of "hypenated-American" with the "me, me, me" mentality.
Please, in your endeavor to fix "blame" elsewhere, don't forget the multiple hundreds of thousands of "Boomers" who served this nation in honor and selflessness, leaving 55,000 of our brothers and sisters lying dead on the field of battle for the Ideal of America, when most of the American "parent" generation sat on the sidelines in quiet dumbness and then watched as we came home to be spit upon and reviled in many unthinkable ways.
We must all shoulder a portion of the responsibility for where we are today. Until we do, we are doomed as a culture and the "Republic" along with us.
