Thoughts?
Young tend to be ignorant and gullible. If they don't have proper guidance while their brains are developing they will have difficulty understanding that life is not easy, life is not fair, love doesn't conquer all, and there are no free rides.

As people age most of them realize that it takes sacrifice and an investment of time (time = life) in order to put a roof over your head and to provide for your family. They also realize that too many people want to skip over the time and sacrifice part and jump right to the good stuff.

Age has some bearing, but it is more related to your income, education, job, and the type of people you surround yourself with.

My old man is a republican that did not goto college. He used to make real good money until he got fired and lost his abition. Still a republican. I now make good money and am a republican, to a point. Coincidence?

I have never had the urge to own my own buiness. I do however want to climb the ladder in a large buisness. I need big buisness to put food on my table.

Annoy a democrat, work hard and be happy.

While I don't vote a straight republican ticket, I am rapidly approaching 40 years old and have learned over the years that I am not too conservative, however, I don't agree with a big government.

I am not looking forward to a democratic president to compliment the other democratic-led branches, and I still believe if Obama gets elected, there is still enough hate left in the United States that he will be assassinated. And I'm not too comfy with Biden as Pres - as I wouldn't be too comfy with Palin as president if something happened to McCain.

Personally, I like McCain, and I liked his campaign in 2000. I do not like his campaign in 2008.
