I was born in 1990 but I am gonna say the 80s because I dislike the pop culture from the mid 90s to present and I love 80s music. I don't like the 60s and 70s quite as much as the 80s either.

As much as I loved history, I am happy with the modern era! Always look forward, never back.

The 1950's. Nearly everything we like and dislike about our country and ourselves today began in the 1950's. It was a pivital decade.

I would say about the same but most of us only know what we have heard. I did vote for the 50s. I was in high school, college and a new bride. it really was an easy time. There were no wars, low unemployment, low inflation and the music told a story. As for the 20s, it just seemed like a fun time as well, until the crash of the market...

Ive only lived through 4 of them, the 80's to the 2010's, but out of those, I pick the 90's.

When would I have liked to experience? The 1960's. Its the last period of time people were really motivated to do anything about injustice. I would have absolutely been in my element.

I would be tempted to say that I prefer the 20s, all that jazz, the clothes, the fun, etc.

BUT

no HVAC <--- you will notice this is #1 on my list.
No iPhones
No Youtube
No internet
No television
My son would be arrested for being gay
My sister would be arrested (or at least severed harassed) for dating black guys
I would harshly judged for not going to church

I go with 2010s. The best is yet to come people!

Besides, the 1950's gave us chrome detailing.
