The Democrats get the youth vote. Because the Democrats aren’t these kids’ parents. After a lifetime (i.e., high school) of their parents telling them ‘no’ after they turn 18 they turn on their parents. And start voting Democrat. Wait until you’re married before having sex? I think not, Mom & Dad. Because there isn’t anything wrong with having cheap meaningless sex with a bunch of different people. The Democrats understand this. And provide these young women with birth control and access to abortion so they can have a lot of casual sex without any consequences. Of course, a lot of this sex won’t be very good (see Devout Catholics Have Better Sex, Study Says by Elizabeth Flock posted 7/17/2013 on US News and World Report—an older article appearing in their Twitter feed this past week).
Devout, married Catholics have the best sex of any demographic group, the Family Research Council said at an event Wednesday, pointing to a collection of studies from the last several decades.
The socially conservative Christian group relied heavily on statistics from the University of Chicago’s last National Health and Social Life Survey, conducted in 1992, which found the most enjoyable and most frequent sex occurring among married people, those who attended church weekly – any church, whether Catholic or not – and people who had the least sexual partners…
The notion that Catholics have better sex isn’t a new one, especially coming from Catholics. In 1994, Andrew Greeley, a Catholic sociologist and priest, published “Sex: The Catholic Experience,” which released a litany of new statistics: 68 percent of Catholics professed to have sex at least once a week versus 56 percent of non-Catholics; 30 percent of Catholics had bought erotic underwear versus 20 percent non-Catholics; and 80 percent of devout Catholic women approved of having sex for pleasure alone.
Girls go to parties where guys ply them with alcohol. To get them drunk enough to lower their inhibitions. A Girl may want to be relaxed enough to be with a guy she likes. While a guy may just want to get her drunk so she can’t say ‘no’. One thing for sure, though, whatever happens won’t be the subject of any romance novel. It could be a scene in a porn movie. But it sure won’t end up on the big screen in a love story.
Let’s face it, any sex where being inebriated is a prerequisite just isn’t going to be that good. Or memorable. Further, it is likely to leave a woman filled with shame or regret. As she worries about what she did. With whom she did it with. And then the questions to fret over. Did she take any precautions? Is she pregnant? Did she catch a sexually transmitted disease? Did someone make a video of her while she was passed out and naked? Doing things to her? Is she going to see herself on the Internet? Will her friends and her family see her on the Internet? Her professors? Her boss? Will this come up should she decide to run for public office?
To have the same frequency of sex married women have may leave her with more feelings of shame and regret. And an emptiness. For while she is having sex a married woman is making love. For a married woman doesn’t have to get drunk to lower her inhibitions. For there are no inhibitions to lower. She doesn’t have to worry about catching an STD. And if she gets pregnant it may be because she wanted to get pregnant. Also, there is no shame and regret the day after. For a married woman is not coming home disheveled the following morning. Where her neighbors can see her wearing the same clothes she had on the night before. And see her underwear fall out of her purse while digging out her keys.
For a married woman sex is about love-making. Sharing intimate moments with the person she loves. Someone she wants to please. Just as her husband wants to please her. As well as honor her and protect her. He won’t be posting any videos of her passed out and naked on the Internet. Sure, they may leave the bathroom door open, but there’s honor and protection. As well as an active sex life spiced up with things like erotic underwear.
So what are the Democrats really doing to our young women by being anti-parents? Opening them up to a lot of shame and regret. And worse. Democrats are ruining their sex lives. For using birth control and abortion to stay unmarried only makes their sex lives less fulfilling. At least according to this study. And it’s rather ironic that the women who oppose birth control and abortion (i.e., Catholics) are having better sex lives than those who don’t. So once again their parents were right. Even when it comes to waiting until marriage to have sex. For if you do it will apparently blow your socks off.

There’s an old saying by Mark Twain that goes like this. “Figures don’t Lie, but Liars Figure.” Which basically means you can make statistical figures say anything you want them to say. For example, here are two statistics that make it sound like black fathers are better parents than white fathers (see Harper’s Index posted April of 2014 pm Harpers Magazine).
Percentage of white live-in fathers who help their children with their homework daily : 28
Of black live-in fathers who do : 41
Almost half of all live-in black fathers help their children with their homework. While only 28% of white live-in fathers do. So black fathers are better parents than white fathers. At least, these statistics would seem to say so. But it’s what these statistics don’t say that will change the conclusion these two statistics appear to make.
First of all, children who receive more help with their homework will do better in school. For their children will be doing their homework if their dad is there helping them. So the homework is getting done. And if children have trouble understanding something their dad is their clarifying and explaining things. So these children are going to do better in school. And a larger percentage of them will graduate from high school. As students who work hard and do their homework are more likely to graduate than those who don’t. So, do the statistics for high school graduation rates show that black live-in fathers are doing a better job helping their kids with their homework? No. According to data from the National Center for Education Statistics (see National public high school graduation rate at a four-decade high by Lyndsey Layton posted 1/22/2013 on The Washington Post), high school graduation rates were 83% for whites and 66.1% for blacks.
Learning abilities are the same for both blacks and whites. So you can’t say that whites are smarter than blacks. So is there something else that can explain the difference in graduation rates? Yes. The inability to make kids do their homework. For if they’re not doing their homework they’re not progressing through high school. And many just drop out. But according to the statistics more black live-in fathers are helping their kids with their homework than white live-in fathers. So how is it that blacks have a lower high school graduation rate? Because of something the statistics don’t show.
According to Census data (see Social and Economic Characteristics of Currently Unmarried Women With a Recent Birth: 2011 posted on census.gov), the percent of out-of-wedlock births was 29.2% for whites and 67.8% for blacks. Less than a third of white children are born out-of-wedlock. While just over two-thirds of black children are born out-of-wedlock. To single mothers who struggle to both work and raise their children. Leaving them little time to help them with their homework. And because these mothers are single and working their children may be home alone. And more likely to get into trouble. Not do their homework. And drop out of school.
So the higher rate of children born out-of-wedlock would explain the lower high school graduation rates for black children. While the percentage of black live-in fathers helping their children is skewed. For it’s only 41% of the 32.2% (100% – 67.8%) of black fathers who stayed in the home to help raise their children. While it’s 28% of the larger 70.8% (100% – 29.2%) of white fathers who stayed home to help raise their children. (Assuming born in-wedlock means the same as live-in father. Of course a child could be born in-wedlock only to see his parents divorce later making his or her mother a single mother. However, with child support and alimony payments a percentage of these single mothers would not have to work and thus be able to spend more time with their child. So a divorced mother probably would not have to struggle as much a single mother who was never married. Especially if the divorced parents are older when they start their families and the husband has an established career providing the financial resources that allows the divorced mother to stay at home with the children).
Crunching these numbers for 1,000 fathers you get about 131 black fathers and 779 white fathers (blacks are approximately 13.1% of the population and whites are approximately 77.9%). Of these 131 black fathers about 42 (32.2%) are live-in. And of these 779 white fathers about 552 (70.8%) are live-in. Bringing us to approximately 17 (41%) black live-in fathers who help their children with their homework. And approximately 154 (28%) white fathers who help their children with their homework.
So, if you look at the total number of live-in fathers helping their children with their homework (17 and 154) the number of white live-in fathers doing so is approximately 793% greater than black live-in fathers. Or for every black live-in father helping his child with his or her homework there are about 9 white live-in fathers helping their children. Which sounds like white fathers are spending more time helping their children with their homework. Which they are because there are more white fathers than black fathers. In a random sample of 1000 fathers there would be approximately 6 white fathers for every black father. Based on the demographics of the population.
So we have looked at statistics in numerous ways. Proving once again that “figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” Or that you can make statistics say anything you want them to say. So you should always be suspect when people use statistics to support their argument. Because there is a lot of interpretation the number crunchers make with the data. A lot of assumptions. And are often a selective and subjective in their use of the data. Especially when it’s the government uses those statistics to justify new spending, new taxes, new regulations, etc. Because these are the people who truly figure with the numbers. They did it in the days of Mark Twain. And they still do it today.

As the government has gotten more involved in education the further test scores have fallen. Indian kids and Chinese kids blow American kids away on their tests. Which is why employers who are looking to hire employees with strong math and science skills turn to the H-1B visa. And hire foreign workers with those strong science and math skills. As American kids aren’t graduating with them. Instead they’re learning about global warming and what a rotten country the United States is.
So we shouldn’t spend another dime on education. What we need to do is start teaching useful skills. Like math and science. Instead of the primary focus of public education. Turning kids into Democrat voters. Which is why Democrats are all for universal Pre-K (see Should the Government Fund Universal Pre-K? posted 3/28/2014 on U.S. News and World Report).
One of the centerpieces of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s successful campaign in New York City was a proposal to fund universal pre-kindergarten with higher taxes on the rich. “We’re ready to offer high-quality, full-day, universal pre-K this September for 53,000 New York City children,” de Blasio said during a press conference this week, even as his plan for a tax increase has run into stiff opposition.
And de Blasio isn’t alone in pushing for government funded universal pre-K, as President Obama has also unveiled a proposal to provide pre-school to every four-year-old from low- and moderate-income families. “The size of your paycheck shouldn’t determine your child’s future,” Obama said. “Let’s make sure none of our kids start out the race of life a step behind.”
The country is more conservative than liberal (see Liberal Self-Identification Edges Up to New High in 2013 posted 1/10/2014 on Gallup). Which is why Democrats had to pass the Affordable Care Act with shady backroom deals (the Louisiana Purchase, Cornhusker Kickback, Gator Aid, etc.). And the President had to tell the Lie of the Year (see Lie of the Year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’ posted 12/12/2013 on PolitiFact). Proving how devious the Democrats have to be to pass legislation the American people don’t want.
The liberals are destroying public education. They have control over the curriculum. And that curriculum is to turn kids into Democrat voters. Instead of teaching math and science. Our college graduates may be unable to fill high-tech job openings but they know that their parents’ selfishness caused manmade global warming. That Christopher Columbus single-handedly killed everything that was good in the New World. And that America grew into the number one economic power in the world because of slavery. Despite the South’s slave economy being so poor that they could not compete against the richer paid-labor economy in the North. And lost the American Civil War.
This is why they want universal Pre-K. To start the programming earlier. To get our kids away from their parents sooner. So the state can have a bigger influence in what they learn. And what they think. Does it work? Well, who do young people typically vote for? That’s right. Democrats. Because Democrats get them while they’re young, uneducated and inexperienced. Guaranteeing them a few election cycles out of them before they wise up. And perhaps they can add an election cycle or two if they get these kids sooner with universal Pre-K. Which can be the only reason why they want universal Pre-K. At least it would explain our poor test scores. And why high-tech firms have to use the H-1B visa to find qualified workers.

The Democrat Party is the Cool Uncle that buys Booze and Cigarettes for his Nieces and Nephews
People characterize the Republicans as being a bunch of old fogies. Out of touch. Who don’t have a clue about the world today. Unlike their children
do. Who are wise beyond their years. For they know there is nothing really bad with underage drinking and smoking. Smoking marijuana. Or doing other drugs. And there is nothing wrong with casual sex. Sexting. Or nude selfies.
This is why the children of old fogies like the Democrat Party. Because the Democrats get them. Unlike their parents. Their parents tell them they shouldn’t stay out late, drink, smoke, do drugs or have sex. While the Democrats decriminalize marijuana and work to decriminalize other drugs. Provide free birth control. And abortion without parental notification. Making the Democrat Party the cool uncle that buys booze and cigarettes for his nieces and nephews. So is it any wonder that the youth vote goes Democrat?
The ironic thing, though, is that these old fogies were once young themselves. And some were pretty wild in their youth, too. But once they became parents things changed. For when it’s their daughter they don’t want her being objectified. Encouraged to explore her sexuality by having so much casual sex that she catches a sexually transmitted disease or gets pregnant. Especially if they did in their youth. Which is the last thing they want for their little girl. Who is and will forever remain their little girl.
Keynesian Economics conditioned People to accept that Government knows Best
This is the rule. Not the exception. As kids grow up fighting their parents they reach a point in life where they realize that their parents were right all along. That if they had only spent more time on their homework and less time partying things would have turned out better. Life may have been less fun in the short-run but much better in the long-run. They’d had an earlier start in their career. A career with better pay and benefits. They could have bought a house sooner. Met someone to marry and start a family with sooner. Instead of finding themselves at 25 buried under student loan debt for a degree that can’t get them a job. And a decade or so of hooking up having conditioned men to shun any serious commitment. Leading their daughters to turn to serial dating and online dating. As they struggle to find someone else who has grown up, too.
This is what the old fogies know. That their kids don’t. You get wiser with age. Thanks to education. And experience. Two things the young just don’t have. And never will. Because by the time they grow wise from education and experience they are no longer kids. But well on their way to ‘old fogery’. Which is, of course, a problem for the Democrat Party. For a wise voting public will not help them win elections. As their Keynesian economic policies have nothing but a long record of failure. Giving us the Great Depression, the stagflation of the 1970s, the dot-com recession and the Great Recession. To name a few bad economic times Keynesian economics have given us. Things older people know from education and experience. But the kids voting Democrat don’t.
Keynesian economics ushered in the era of Big Government. And did something the Socialists could not. Conditioned people to accept that government knows best. Especially young people. Uneducated and inexperienced young people. Despite the Democrats’ horrible record concerning things economic. Because of this record the Democrats use lies and deceit to attack free market capitalism. That economic system that worked better than any other. To get people who knew no better to mistrust free market capitalism. And ask for the government to fetter unfettered capitalism. To make the world a fairer place.
The Democrats use Public Education to teach our Kids to Distrust Capitalism and to Trust Government
It sounds good to the inexperienced and uneducated. Because it feels good to think in terms of fairness. And if there is one thing the young have are emotions. They like to use their hearts. Not their brains. As they are idealistic and naïve. Unlike those old fogies who are realists. They can’t be fooled or swayed by the Democrat lies because they have learned and experienced a lot in their long lives. And heard the same old Democrat lies all through those long lives. Which is why the Democrats work so hard on the youth vote. The War on Women, their lax drug attitudes, birth control, abortion, gay rights…all of these are to get the young to think in terms of fairness. To tug on their heartstrings. To get them emotional. And keep them emotional. As well as ignorant.
The more ignorant people are the easier it is to lie to them. Anyone who knows the history of Western Civilization will understand how life became better for people as we moved closer to free market capitalism. Anyone who knows classical economics will understand how thrift, savings, free trade, sound money, etc., made America the number one economy in the world. While the Keynesian policies of today are threatening to knock America out of that number one spot. People who understand these things are not going to vote Democrat. Which is why the Democrats work hard to keep people from learning these things. By constantly lying about them. And not teaching them in the institutions they control. Our public schools. And our institutions of higher education.
The Republican equation for winning votes is a difficult equation. Knowledge + Experience + Reason = Republican Votes. It’s difficult because the Democrats have long controlled public education. Thanks to their friends in the teacher unions. And their friends running our institutions of higher education. Which spend more time teaching our kids to distrust capitalism. And to trust government. To feel more. And think less. To live for today. And not worry about tomorrow. Making it very difficult for the Republicans to get young voters to vote for them. As they are unknowledgeable (thanks to our public schools), inexperienced (because they are young) and prefer emotion over reason (because feeling is more fun than thinking). Which is why old fogies (the knowledgeable, experienced and thinking) vote Republican and the youth vote does not.

Proponents of same-sex marriage say there is no difference with it and traditional marriage. And that same-sex couples can be parents just as traditional couples can. There’s just the matter of getting a child. As a same-sex couple cannot conceive a child. But as long as women give up their unwanted babies for adoption instead of aborting them a same-sex couple should be able to adopt a child. Or a lesbian couple could find a sperm donor (see Court: Marotta is a father, not merely a sperm donor by Steve Fry posted 1/22/2014 on cjonline).
A Topeka man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple is the presumptive father to a baby one of the woman bore and is subject to paying child support, a Shawnee County District Court judge ruled Wednesday.
In her written decision, District Court Judge Mary Mattivi said that because William Marotta and the same-sex couple failed to secure the services of a physician during the artificial insemination process, he wasn’t entitled to the same protections given other sperm donors under Kansas law…
Marotta contended he was only a sperm donor to a same-sex couple seeking a child, but the Kansas Department for Children and Families argued he is a father who owes child support to his daughter. The girl is 4 years old…
The Kansas Department for Children and Families filed the case in October 2012 seeking to have Marotta declared the father of a girl Schreiner bore in 2009.
Marotta opposed the action, saying he didn’t intend to be the child’s father, and that he had signed a contract waiving his parental rights and responsibilities while agreeing to donate sperm in a plastic cup to Schreiner and Angela Bauer, who was then her partner. Marotta contacted the women after they placed a Craigslist ad seeking a sperm donor.
The state has been seeking to have Marotta declared the child’s father so he can be responsible for about $6,000 in public assistance the state provided, as well as future child support.
This makes a good case against same-sex couple adoption. For without a blood tie to the baby it is apparently easy to walk away from it. Even if one made a commitment to raise a child together. Like with this lesbian couple. The partner to the mother of the baby left. Without providing for that baby. So the mother and baby became wards of the state. Which is why the state went after the sperm donor for child support. Even though he had an agreement with the lesbian couple that he would have no responsibility for their child.
There are strict guidelines for adopting a baby. To make sure the child goes to a good home. With parents who have the financial wherewithal to raise a child. Apparently there is no such requirement for the donation of sperm. Which can place a child in a home with parents who do not have the financial wherewithal to raise a child. At least it would appear so.
A marriage between a man and a woman is about children. To conceive and bring children into the world. In a partnership that facilitates the raising of children. To give them a last name. A stay-at-home mother gets added to her husband’s employer benefits. So she can stay at home and work without pay while being covered by her working husband’s benefits. Where a mother and a father can both raise their children. Each teaching them what they uniquely can. Giving them as complete a childhood as possible. Tied forever to their children by blood. This is what marriage is for. Children. All the employer benefits of marriage. All the legal advantages of marriage. All the tax advantages of marriage. They’re all there for one reason. To facilitate the raising of children. So parents raise their children. And not the state.

Parents can’t tell their kids anything. For they know everything. Thankfully for parents they got a little help from MTV. Who kids will listen to even when they won’t listen to their parents (see Study: US reality shows contributed to record decline in teen pregnancy by Nicholas Tufnell, wired.co.uk, posted 1/13/2014 on ars technica).
A study from Wellesley College and the University of Maryland finds that MTV’s Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant contributed to a record decline in US teen pregnancy…
In an effort to find the “causal effect of specific media content on teen childbearing rates,” Kearney and Levine began an empirical investigation by studying Nielsen ratings (a US audience measurement system) as well as data, trends and metrics from Google and Twitter. The researchers then examined the impact on teen birth rates using Vital Statistics Natality microdata.
The figures revealed that Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant often had extremely high ratings and a very dedicated following, causing many to search and discuss the themes explored on the shows. Specifically, searches and tweets on birth control and abortion spiked each time the show was broadcast, particularly in areas where it was popular.
Teen abortion rates also fell over this period, which Levine and Kearney see as further evidence that the shows are partly responsible for a reduction in pregnancies.
How about that? MTV got something many have failed to do. To get kids to listen to their parents. For the fall in teen pregnancies AND the fall in teen abortions means one of two things. Either kids acting irresponsibly in spreading STDs with active sex lives got more responsible when it came to birth control. Or they are just having less sex. Like Mom and Dad would have tried everything within their powers to get them to do. And here’s a television show that Mom and Dad no doubt couldn’t stand tipping that argument in their favor. Thank you MTV. For telling our kids that Mom and Dad were right all along.

Since the Keynesians took over government we said goodbye to the classical economics that made America the number one economic power in the world. Free market capitalism. Based on a strong banking system. And a sound currency. People saved as much as they could. Banks converted their savings into investment capital. And investors and entrepreneurs built the world’s number one economy. Because people worked hard and saved for their future. While raising their families. In their houses. Without Mommy and Daddy helping them. Unlike people do today (see Young Couples Moving Back Home To Save Money For Baby posted 12/22/2013 on CBS Miami).
“Young couples, when they have a child or when they’re planning to have a child, are moving back in with their parents,” said Carmen Wong Ulrich, BabyCenter Financial expert,. “Ten percent of young women are staying, living at home with their parents to save money to have children. This is a new trend.”
Alexis Kort, her husband Josh and their baby Charlotte moved in with Alexis’ parents when they relocated to their hometown.
“You don’t necessarily think about it before you have a kid and then all of a sudden you’re like ‘Wait a second, how do we make this work financially?’,” said Kort…
This trend extends beyond housing. A survey found that nearly 30 percent of new parents get financial assistance from their parents. Ulrich points out that parents who support their children who have children have less time to save for their retirement.
“Supporting grown children is a strain and it can be a strain on your own financial future,” said Ulrich.
You can blame the Democrats for this. They’re all Keynesians. And believe in printing (and devaluing) money to keep interest rates artificially low. So low that you actually lose money now if you put it into a savings account. So people spend it before it loses its purchasing power.
And Keynesians believe in government spending. To stimulate the economy. Which they pay for with taxes. Lots of taxes. Between the devaluation of the dollar (which raises prices) and the rising tax bite there’s less money to save. And with the Keynesians pushing for more consumption and less savings (to stimulate the economy) kids aren’t saving. They’re spending. Living in the now. Without a care in the world about tomorrow. Which is why kids today are moving back in with their parents. Because they’d rather pay a cellular bill the size of a car payment than save for their future.

The Generation that won World War II Sacrificed and Saved for the Future
The generation that lived through the Great Depression and World War II were a hardy people. They knew a thing or two about sacrifice. And going without. For their wants often went unfulfilled. And they were a skinny people. As there was not a lot of food to eat. First because of the Great Depression. When people could barely afford to stay alive. And then World War II. Where the government rationed almost everything for the war effort.
So they spent little. Saved what they could. Got used to not having what they wanted. And always worked hard for a better future. Sound familiar? No. Of course not. No one’s like this today. That hardy generation survived the Great Depression and won World War II. Making the world safe for democracy to flourish. Their free market capitalism made a prosperous world of plenty. So their children would never have to live in a world they had lived in. As it turned out, though, that was a mistake.
Their children were not like their parents. These baby boomers were not as hardy as their parents were. While they struggled and went without the baby boomers didn’t. The baby boomers became the Me Generation. Because it was all about them. They rejected the hard work and sacrifice of their parents. And didn’t save for a better tomorrow. No. For them it was all about the here and now.
The Me Generation rebelled against their Parents and became Anti-Parents
The Me Generation didn’t save like their parents. They spent. Changing the economy forever. From one made strong and healthy driven by private savings that banks converted into investment capital. To a Keynesian one. Where Keynesian economists viewed savings as economic leaks from the economy. No. Spending was better. Consumption was better than saving. Besides, what did we have to save for anymore with the Federal Reserve printing money? And the government paying our way for us in retirement?
The Me Generation was only too happy to help transform the government from one of savings and investment to one of consumptionand gratification. And they lived Life in the Fast Lane (by Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley, recorded by the Eagles in 1976 on the studio album Hotel California). “Everything all of the time.” And when that wasn’t enough there was cocaine to fill the remaining emptiness. “There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face.” Sometimes the drug use became so intense it interfered with another past time of the Me Generation. Sex. “He was too tired to make it, she was too tired to fight about it.”
So while their parents won the Second World War they were partying and getting high and having as much casual sex as their excessive drug use allowed. And because of it the Seventies gave us a new drug in the Eighties. Crack. And a war on drugs. As well as AIDS. Thank you, Me Generation. For rebelling against your parents and becoming anti-parents. Destroying our past culture and traditions. And our religion. Just so you can have “everything all of the time.” Right now. Without ever waiting to gratify an urge or desire.
Obamacare will Fail because the Young won’t give up their Life of Consumption and Gratification
The counterculture (i.e., the anti-parents) movement then entered academia. Took over the curriculum in our public schools. And our colleges and universities. Where they taught our kids that everything their parents told them was wrong. That they are destroying the environment. That American imperialism is the greatest threat to world peace. That the Founding Fathers were rich white slave owners who wrote the Constitution to further their greed. That free market capitalism is cruel, callous and unfair. While government is kind, feeling and fair.
The Me Generation learned something valuable as they entered academia. And government. That there are a lot of young people who vote. And because many of them grew up already rebelling against their parents they pushed these people closer to them. The anti-parents. Helping them to hold on to political power. So they appealed to all the things young people want. Such as sex. By providing free birth control and access to abortion. They attack Christianity and tell their students there is nothing wrong with their life of consumption and gratification. And, of course, they favor decriminalizing drugs. And are making great headway in that area with marijuana. I mean, kids just love the Democrats. For they indulge their every want and desire. Without parenting them to sacrifice and save for their future. Like their insufferable parents.
So our young have never been defined more by selfishness, narcissism and hedonism. Always living for the moment. Without a care in the world for the future. Making even the Me Generation seem selfless. Who lived in relative anonymity in their narcissistic world. Unlike today’s youth. Who can’t survive without Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. And must share every iota of their existence with the entire world. Because it’s all about them. The world revolves around them and the pursuit of their life of consumption and gratification. So it is rather ironic that the very thing that keeps Democrats in power—indulging in the youth voters’ selfishness, narcissism and hedonism—could deal such a threatening blow to their power. For Obamacare to work they need these young voters to be more like their parents and less like the people they are. Thanks to the Democrat indoctrination in our public schools, colleges and universities. To sacrifice some of their wants and desires to help their parent’s generation. To consume less. So the people they rebelled against can have free medical care.
This is why Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) will fail. The young and healthy do not want to give up their life of consumption and gratification. Which means they’re not buying health insurance. Only the old and sick are. Because they need health care. While the young and healthy don’t. So they are not going to buy costly health insurance policies that they feel they will never use. Instead they’ll pay the lower-cost fine. So they can continue to live their life of consumption and gratification. That the Democrats told them all their life was what they should do. Not to save for the future. Or sacrifice. For their parents. Their community. Or their God. So the Affordable Care Act will fail. Because you can’t indulge selfishness, narcissism and hedonism and expect the young to give up their life of consumption and gratification.

Week in Review
Cory Monteith’s death is a warning. Kids should listen to their parents more. And to the Democrats less (see ‘Glee’ actor Corey Monteith died of heroin, alcohol mix by JEREMY HAINSWORTH, Associated Press, posted 10/2/2013 on The Kansas City Star).
The British Columbia Coroners Service said Wednesday investigators found a spoon with drug residue and a used hypodermic needle in the hotel room where “Glee” actor Cory Monteith was found dead in July.
The coroner’s final report issued Wednesday, confirmed initial findings that Monteith died from using intravenous heroin combined with alcohol…
The investigation said Monteith had a history of illicit drug use with intermittent periods of rehabilitation and of abstinence from drugs…
His death recalled the lives of Heath Ledger, Corey Haim and River Phoenix — actors who battled substance abuse and died in their 20s and 30s.
Monteith had talked bluntly about struggling with addiction since he was a teenager, calling it a serious problem and telling Parade magazine in 2011 he was “lucky to be alive.”
In that interview, he said he was using marijuana and drinking by age 13, and his drug use was “out of control” by the time he was 16. “Anything and everything, as much as possible,” he said. “I had a serious problem.”
People always like to make a comparison between marijuana and alcohol. That marijuana is no worse than alcohol. But there is only one drunk. While there are many highs. With the next high always promising to be better than the last high. Something we call chasing the dragon. That often ends in overdoses. And death. Like in Monteith’s case.
Notice the drug Monteith started with. Marijuana. Which is why marijuana isn’t like alcohol. Because there aren’t new ways of getting drunk when an old way of getting drunk bores you. Not so with drugs. Where amateurs and novices start off with marijuana. Until it bores them. Then they start looking for new highs. Better highs. Until one day they start injecting drugs of dubious origin into their veins.
People don’t start by injecting drugs of dubious origin into their veins. That’s an experienced drug user. Who worked their way up to heroin. After starting with marijuana. The very drug states are now starting to decriminalize. While the federal government looks the other way. If marijuana is no longer illegal more people are likely to try it. Get bored with it. And move on to other drugs. Just like Monteith, Heath Ledger, Corey Haim and River Phoenix did. And countless children whose deaths didn’t make it into the news. With countless others soon to follow.
The young like the Democrats. Because they are not their parents. Instead of saying ‘no’ to sex and drugs the Democrats give out free birth control. Resulting in an explosion of sexually transmitted diseases. Especially among young girls. Who will have to live with that for the rest of their lives. Even when trying to find someone to marry and start a family with. Which an STD doesn’t make easy. While other girls become mothers before they leave high school. Setting back any career plans they may have had as they can’t raise their children and go off to college. While others get abortions. Which some regret as they grow older. Not all. But those who do can’t stop thinking about the life that didn’t happen because of what they did. When they made a decision as a child their grownup self regrets. So the Democrats really mess up young people’s lives. And if that damage wasn’t enough they are now making it easier to become a drug addict. By making the number one gateway drug no longer illegal.
Democrats will do anything to secure the youth vote. Even if they destroy their lives in the process. Which they often do. In fact, they’re destroying their entire generation with the debt they’re going to leave them. While at the same time impoverishing them with Obamacare. Where the young and healthy will pay for the health care of the old and sick. Leaving them with little now. And even less to save for their own retirement. Making the Democrats young people’s worst enemy. Yet the Democrats have fooled them into believing that they are their best friend. Just goes to show you what you can do if you have no conscious. Which is easier to do when you get rid of God everywhere. For if there is no God what do you have to worry about in this life when you believe there is no afterlife? Talk about your freedoms. Freedom from empathy. Something that comes in handy for a ruling class interested only in power.

Liberals help Women delay Living Happily Ever After as Long as Possible
Conservatives believe in customs. And traditions. Those things that are tried and true. Like the institution of marriage. The foundation of the family. Where a man and a woman pledge their love to each other. To have and to hold. From the day of their wedding forward. For better. For worse. For richer. For poorer. In sickness and health. To love and to cherish. Till death do they part. All the while living happily ever after. As husband and wife.
Conservatives do not believe chivalry is dead. Conservative men still place women on pedestals. They stand up when a lady enters the room. Holds her chair for her. If it’s raining or cold outside a conservative will give his coat to her. And open and close the door for her. A conservative will shield her from danger. And protect her honor. Always treating her like a lady.
A liberal feminist woman, on the other hand, will say, “Don’t you dare open that door for me.” For she is fiercely independent. And wants nothing to do with chivalry. She wants to be treated like a man. Liberals, in fact, want women to have a career first then maybe consider getting married. Or having children. And not have the fairytale wedding all girls dream about. Looking forward to the day when her Prince Charming will come along. And sweep her off her feet. No. Liberals want to kill that dream. And kill all romance. Giving women birth control, access to abortion and the morning-after pill so she can avoid living happily ever after as long as possible.
Liberals believe being a Part-Time Mother is Good Enough
Conservatives don’t like high taxes. Because a generation ago taxes were low enough that most everyone could raise a family on a single income. But with the rise of the welfare state taxes have steadily risen. Taking more and more of our paychecks. Making it difficult for a woman to stay at home and be a full-time mother. Which is why, today, many women are forced to be part-time mothers. So they can earn a second income. So they have enough left over in their paychecks after paying for the welfare state.
The family is the center of the conservative’s world. Which is why they work hard to establish a career. And vote to keep the tax bite as small as possible. So they can afford to buy a house. And begin raising their family. With the mother staying home to be a full-time mother. To give her children the best possible of all childhoods. Having all of their material needs met. A nurturing environment. Created by a loving father and mother. Who teach their children the customs and traditions that their parents taught them. And help them with their school work so they get the best possible education. So they, too, will one day be able to earn enough to raise their own family.
Liberals, though, believe in childcare. In fact, they want state-funded childcare so women can return to work as soon as possible after having their children. Leaving part of the raising and nurturing of their children to strangers. As if children are a burden. Like cutting the grass. Something that they can farm out to other people. As a working mother has better and more important things to do. Like earning a paycheck. Which is why liberals want state-funded childcare. Because they believe being a part-time mother is good enough. A working mother’s children may disagree with that. But liberals are old-fashioned in this one respect. They believe children should be seen and not heard.
Liberals encourage Women to stay Strong, Independent and Alone
Conservative policies tend to favor families. They promote families. While liberal policies make the family obsolete. By trying to make husbands and fathers obsolete. Liberal policies allow a woman to build a career instead of a family. Birth control, access to abortion and the morning-after pill allow her to engage in consequence-free sex. Liberal policies enable so many women to give it away for free that men see no reason to marry them. Women earn their own money. And with no children there’s no need for a woman to get married. So she can stay strong and independent. And alone.
Of course, today, there are a lot of women starting their families in their forties. As they’ve discovered they want more than just to be strong, independent and alone. They want a family. They want children. Their own children. Before it’s too late for them to have children. As waiting too long physically complicates things both for the mother and the child. And there can be some emotional issues. For a young child entering school with a 50-year old mother will be different from other children who have parents in their twenties. And when they graduate high school their parents will be ‘grandparent’ age. Perhaps not being there for their children when they start raising their own families.
Conservative policies foster the bonds between parents and children. And grandchildren. While liberal polices weaken these bonds. By encouraging a woman to exchange a career and casual sex for marriage and a family. Who may later in life discover that she wants to be married and raise a family. But because she was a devoted follower of devout liberal feminist dogma those things are harder now. And most likely she will have to do them alone. As the men these women rejected to pursue their career likely found other women who wanted to get married and raise a family. And even if those marriages didn’t last happily ever after they probably have grown children from it. And may not be interested in doing it all over again. As their children may still be consuming a large percentage of their paycheck. Especially if they’re going to college.
And yet with every election cycle it is the conservatives that hate women and children. Not the people that are destroying women’s lives by telling them to forget their silly childhood dreams of meeting prince charming, having the beautiful wedding and raising children. Instead they should stay strong, independent and alone. Forcing many women to miss or delay the greatest experience of their lives. Raising their family.
