Please don't project your poor ass onto me. I HAVE those things. Just cuz
Millennials don't give a damn about ratboy or his crap.
Ask me if I give a fuck.
Oh, they care about YOU and YOUR lies and anti-capitalist agendas?
Sorry dude, this article is like 5 months old, but it MIGHT still hold
true today... maybe... could be... might.
Fer a second there I had to act like a stupid liberal and the liberal
media who can't say ANYTHING definitively, while telling us how things are
going to be in the future, regarding climate change and global warming.
Maybe, might, could, should... is all they can say, because even THEY
don't know... it's ALL conjecture.
Good thing they added those adverbs to classic pithy statements like:
"Our children just won't know what snow is." David Viner
"Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." - The Independent
"Scientists project that the Arctic will be ice-free in the summer of
2013." - John Kerry
It's pretty sad when leftist liberals predictions, become memes.
The Conservative Millennial: No Longer a Myth
by Chace Paulson
October 25, 2017
Millennials are not nearly as liberal as the left-wing media would have
The adage that Republicans have a young-people problem is an old one, and
countless reports state that the so-called "Millennial" generation is the
most politically liberal generation in history.
While a Pew study's basic findings about partisan identity remain true,
they ignore one very crucial fact - generations have always grown more
conservative with age.
A paper in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin considers this
pattern when surveying Millennial students with different results. The
journal found that Millennials (born between 1980 and 1994) were more
likely to identify as politically conservative than previous generations-
Baby Boomers and Generation X-had been at the same age.
Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University and lead
author of the paper, explained:
High school seniors are more likely to identify as political
conservatives now compared to 10 years ago. Most surprising, more identify
as conservatives now compared to the 1980s, presumably the era of the
[T]he current view of millennials as liberals might be due to their
age-young people are more likely to be liberal. But if you compare young
people now to young people in previous decades, those now are more
The survey, which is based on data from three long-running national
surveys (Monitoring the Future, American Freshman Survey, and the General
Social Survey), allowed researchers to track generational differences
concerning party identification and political ideology over an extended
period of time.
"The strength of these surveys is it allows us to look at generational
trends without having to worry about what is due to age," said Twenge.
"Right now, millennials look very liberal and more likely to vote for a
Democrat, but maybe that's just because they are young." The data supports
this. In 1976, 35 percent of high school seniors identified as liberal;
that figure has remained consistent at 34 percent in 2014.
The results reaffirm the belief that generations tend to grow more
conservative (and generally more Republican) as they age. Americans are
more apt to identify as liberal at 18 and will, on average, become
increasingly more conservative between the ages of 20 and 60.
Curiously, the greatest change seems to have occurred among the most
conservative groups. The results of the survey show that 23 percent of
incoming Millennial college freshmen identify as far-right, compared with
22 percent of Generation X-ers and only 17 percent of Baby Boomers.
The argument that Millennials are overwhelming liberal is largely based on
their support for controversial issues such as same-sex marriage and
legalization of marijuana. 74 percent of millennials support gay marriage
(nearly double that of the "silent" generation of people born between 1928
and 1945) and support for marijuana legalization has doubled from 34
percent in 2006 to 71 percent in 2016.
Compared to other generations, however, Millennials are the least likely
to support a ban on so-called "assault" weapons and for concealed carry
laws. A recent study by the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement also shows
that Millennials are increasingly opposed to abortion, with 53 percent
saying abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
This supposedly far-left generation doesn't back pet Democratic issues
like Obamacare. Millennials, who were overwhelming in support of Obama's
proposal of government-mandated healthcare when it was proposed during the
2008 election, are today as opposed to the failing law as older
John Della Volpe, the Director of Polling at the Institute of Politics at
Harvard, found similar trends in his own studies about Millennials'
political opinions. He believes these trends offer an opening for
conservatives to reach Millennials... if they figure out the right way to
communicate to them. Della Volpe writes,
My impression is that too many folks across America and even in the
pundit class think of this generation as a monolith waving a socialist
flag. It is so far from the truth. It is much more nuanced than that....
The key finding in my last big survey in the spring of 2016 was that
young people are indicating they are open to a more nuanced conversation
about politics, and listening to views of Democrats as well as
Given that Millennials surpassed Baby Boomers as America's largest
generation in 2015-meaning that millennials are now the single largest
voting bloc by age in the country, making up an estimated 56 percent of
eligible voters-this shift could have a significant impact on public
policy in the future. As this generation grows older and more
conservative, public policy trends may start to move more to the right.
