While too many Baby Boomers, older GenXers, and seniors bought into Reagan’s voodoo economics, it took the Millennial and GenZ generation as a group to act on it as the scourge that it is.
A few years ago, I wrote the piece titled “Boomers Must Take Some Blame And Help Fix Generation Y Unhappy Problem” without any malintent. I was raked over the coals by my boomer friends. Millennial Professor Cody Pogue did a better job.
If the progressive agenda is to succeed, we will need to engage millennials and GenZs. We must engage them and elevate them into leadership.
Millennials and Gen Zs want more than party line politics. They find the superficiality boring given that they know how to find information at the fingertips.
Millennials in the past have not voted in the numbers commensurate with their population, and the result is disadvantageous policy outcomes.
The generational theft cannot continue. In fact, the 10% of Boomers’ excessive wealth should be recovered and reinvested where it should have been in the first place.
It’s up to Millennials to fix a system the Baby Boomers irresponsibly broke into one that is more equitable for society at large.
When one receives a call like this from a millennial, it is like icing on the cake as it makes it evident that this group is necessarily engaged.
Millenials are ripe for the establishment of a third party that speaks to their values and one that mitigates the disaster inflicted on them by both.
Tim Kaine, the Democratic VP candidate, was ready with the reasons every millennial should vote for the Clinton/Kaine ticket. Repeat over and over.
