  •  The thing is baby boomers were never that liberal (2+ / 0-)

    The generations that really enabled the liberal changes of the 1960's were the generations that came of age during the Great Depression and the post-WWII era.  Current up and coming seniors were never that liberal to begin with.

    They were merely portrayed as liberals because that is what the older, more liberal generations of the time wanted to see.

    In fact, during Vietnam, the older you were, the more likely you were to oppose the Vietnam war.

    The generation that gave McCain and Romney their highest levels of support did the same for every Republican since they were able to vote.

    •  Boomers just wanted to get high and have sex (0+ / 0-)

      Now we have to worry about drug interactions and need Viagra.
      I think that as you get older, you just become more of what you are--conservative or liberal. After a certain age, you feel freer to speak your mind and don't care what other folks think about you.

      This comment is a natural product. The slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and in no way are to be considered flaws or defects.
