Do you understand how our government works? The executive branch canít implement any of that on its own.

Do not speak to me as if I donít understand how government works. I get sick of liberal efforts to demean their opponents by challenging their level of education and intelligence. The naivety and emotional nature of liberals suggests the opposite may be true anyway. Democrats already control the house and if they win the White House itís very likely they will win the senate as well. When leftists candidates say they want a green new deal, free healthcare and college and a universal basic income I expect them to attempt to implement these programs. I will ask you leftists again......who is paying for this?

The naÔvetť and emotional nature of the current POTUS is my number one reason for voting against him. He’s not fit to be a leader. Effective leaders have humility and competence.

They do vote when the outcome is important to them. I predict a huge turnout for the 2020 election.

"...Midterm voter turnout reached a modern high in 2018, and Generation Z, Millennials and Generation X accounted for a narrow majority of those voters, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of newly available Census Bureau data..."

I'm 40 and many consider me a Millenial. I voted yesterday in our local election and I vote in every election. My younger cousins and siblings also vote most of the time.

I consider myself in Gen X but I'm younger than most Gen X. Gen X is one of the largest voting blocks percentage-wise (over 50% of us vote). Together with Millenials and Gen Z in the midterm elections last year, combined we outvoted the boomers and older generations.

Life expectancy is 78. So yeah, you’re pretty much exactly at the halfway point. Perception of time moves faster as you get older too, enjoy.

I think I know what you're saying, and I agree. I thought us Baby Boomers were the generation of peace, love, tolerance and civil rights. Well, it seems at least half of them never got the memo. They've turned into cranky old conservatives who are afraid of immigrants and minorities. They'll be happy as long as you cut their taxes and jack up the military (but keep your hands off their social security).

Perhaps not surprisingly, the Boomers have turned out to be the Selfish Generation, and I really hope for X'ers and Millennials to start voting more so we can right this ship.

I think the life expectancy is 84. 38 is pretty close to the middle of that
