We live in such a codependent society today. We end up crippling others emotionally and financially by rescuing them from hardships, many created because they won't learn because they're always being rescued. When you don’t let a child fail and learn how to cope with failure, you handicap him from dealing with reality. Liberals always want to rescue people and shield them from reality.

When a person is lazy, but still has all his needs and wants provided for, he learns that laziness is rewarded. This is why it can be hard to launch teenagers into the work force who is used to the easy life with mom and dad. If you don’t teach and prepare them to carry their own load, they will never learn to become responsible adults and contributors to society.

When you carry another person’s responsibility or force others to cary another person's responsibility, they don’t learn to carry their own load.

In The Wealth of Nations Adam Smith expounds on the importance of self-interest. He shows that when an individual pursues self-sufficiency, he indirectly promotes the good of society. The best thing anyone can do for our country is to be self sufficient. When you are self sufficient you are serving others (giving something of value) in one way or another at the same time serving your own self-interest (taking care of yourself) and not being a dependent who depends on government taking from others.

Being self sufficient is giving and good for society.

Ha, I love stereotypes, they make me laugh. My entire family minus my dad's parents are liberal and all were successful, even a couple business owners in the mix. So take that lol

Yes we all become financially more conservative as we age, but what about human rights, the environment and race relations?

Of course, just read this: https://mic.com/articles/157558/here...ted#.J3moS5Xkr


Once all the old sexist racist people die and the young people of today take power the world will be far more fair, accepting, equitable and peaceful.

Hillary would not be in the race if it was only millennial's voting, see we don't really like war. the presidential race would of probably been Bernie Sanders vs. Marco Rubio.

It is true that some liberals do switch sides.

The only thing they don't tell you the reason.

They become old, miserable, cynical whiners.

The spoiled baby boomers farewell will be met with great relief. And we're gonna have to clean up their mess.

And they've probably done so much damage to the planet, it's pretty much f***ed.

"Why do kids these days still live at home at 30?" Because boomers pissed all the jobs away. They had factories all over where they could just walk in and get a job with great pay. Now? They don't exist anymore. And whos great idea was it to send those jobs away? Hmmmm...

I apologize for using facts. Our generation is just lazy. Note the sarcasm. But even if that were true, who raised them? Hmmmm.
