I’m getting a little sick of the younger generations blaming the Baby Boomers for the mess we are in. It isn’t as much the fault of a specific generation, as it is the fault of an age group, and I sure that you Gen Xers and Gen Yers that bitch about Baby Boomers being the cause of your malaise are not only too stupid to know the difference, you are too stupid to realize that you are currently the cause of the problem.
A generation refers to a group of people born within a certain period of time, and the people included in that group remain the same regardless of the passage of time. A person born a baby boomer, will always be a baby boomer.
An age group refers to a segment of the population that is a certain age at the current time, and the people within that group change on a rolling basis. Today’s 20 - 40 year olds will be 40 - 60 year olds in twenty years.
The problems our nation faces were not, and are not, caused by Baby Boomers. They are caused by liberals. Now look at voter demographics, and you will realize that younger people tend to vote for liberal candidates, and older tend to vote conservative. If a larger percentage of each generation subsequent to the Baby Boomers would have voted for conservative candidates, we wouldn’t be experiencing what we are now.
You can blame the baby boomers for the liberals elected in the 70’s and 80’s. But don’t blame us for Obama, or any of the other liberals in office. If the younger generations would have voted the way the baby boomers did, most of them wouldn’t be there. The current mess is more your fault than ours. Rock the vote, baby!
