  •  Young voters don't see it that way (4+ / 0-)

    They're much more likely to think outside of the box and consider other options besides the current 2 party system.  When you're young, you have the energy and vision to work towards building a new political system, more responsive to average working class Americans.  

    The unjustified thrashing they received during the Occupy Movement has likely hardened their attitudes against supporting the political status quo.

    Something to remember when telling them in 2014 to shut up and get on the bus.
