Those "60s generation Liberals" - with a few prominent exceptions - became Conservatives in middle age, and swung as far to the right as they had swung to the left during their youth. They wound up becoming more right wing than their "GI generation" parents had been. The WW2 generation generally tended towards moderate politics, but the Boomers went from left wing to neoconservative right wing. And I say this as a Boomer/Gen X cusp person myself (who recognizes the boomers' substantial achievements in the arts and culture even though they've been a disaster in politics)

I personally can't wait for Gen X to start running things in this country and restore some level of sanity.

I too think all of them, to one degree or another. But I think it is greatly accelerated in those states dealing with the huge influx of illegal aliens...don't know where all that's going to end, but it can't be good.

Is it just me, or do all of the fastest growing states have a problem on their hands? Calif., Tex., Ariz., Fla., Nev. et al.

Also, I agree with majoun: All of Them. It isn't a matter of Liberal or conservative. The two have been fighting since 1776 and we survived. It is globalism and lousy demographics. Only 70% of kids have a high school diploma now. Thats DISGUSTING

Oh, come on! No charm or character in northern VA? Haven't you ever been to Old Town Alexandria? And blaming "northerners" for changes? Bland and vanilla is happening here too, but I can't blame all people from a region for it. This is a capitalist economy. If people in VA or any other state didn't want bland and vanilla, it wouldn't happen. And if you want to play north vs. south, from where do you think many of the people who have made formerly beautiful, livable, northern cities so miserable came?

All states unless you want to live in some totally flat ugly plains area frequented by tornados every year. That or be in some depressing dreary mid west area with nothing to off except seclusion and rusted out old cities.

Florida has really gone downhill. Theres several other states I would avoid. California is fine if you live in the northern part.

Thats the way Alaska is but the southerners are coming up and making it like every other state, well thats how it is in Anchorage anyway. So we are getting back at the south and bringing our very northern culture with us.
