Majority of young voters want bigger government



quote:

Nearly 6 in 10 young voters support bigger government — a worrisome statistic for conservatives who want to increase their presence on college campuses and among the under-30 crowd.

quote:

According to the Pew Research Center, 59 percent of young voters think the government should do more — something only 44 percent of all voters support. On government-run healthcare, the most popular policy preference among young voters was to expand it.


mega sigh



I simply don't understand how they can be so vehemently against gubmint involvement in private life, but friendly and welcoming towards gubmint involvement in our economic decisions/choices.

Considering the fact that social and economic life are not mutually exclusive, it makes absolutely no sense to me.

The majority of youth voters don't know what they're voting for.

Yeah, I don't think that those numbers have been much different in the last ~40 years, if not longer.

If we are going to extend the Medicare Age eligibility, we should extend the voting age two fold.

The liberals love this stat but they forget one thing: They grow up

Start marrying, having kids, getting real jobs and suddenly your politics start to change.

Without a care in the world. Not worried about paying their fee bill before thursday because dad's taking care of it, not worried about failing anything because their liberal arts classes could be passed by a gorilla, not worried about projects due because their sorority has a database of a couple thousand projects, and voting liberal as hell because it's the cool thing to do



Stereotyping like a boss

re: Majority of young voters want bigger government


This is why I don't believe that there is a big enough majority of Americans that are fiscally conservative as we would like to believe.

I can understand, accept and totally support that this country is more socially liberal. I just have a hard time believing that fiscal conservatism from people like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson will ever be popular.

We've all heard that the GOP needs to lose the social conservatism; fine. Say we get a socially liberal/moderate and fiscally conservative candidate for the GOP in 2016, Americans will accept his socially moderate/liberal stance but will they accept fiscal conservatism or will that get labeled as extreme by the democrats and media like social conservatism does?

Would a candidate like Gary Johnson and Ron/Rand Paul really win with their fiscal conservatism or would they be labeled extreme as a fiscal con like the social cons get labeled as extreme?

I voted for Gary Johnson FWIW.

Good point, it's a shame the drinking age is 21 and voting age is 18

You are capable of screwing up everyone else's life before you get a crack at your own
