DISTRUSTING OF YOUNGER POLITICIANS

A survey taken of Americans over 50 shows a great distrust in the younger generation to run this country or our state and local politics.

 

The main reasons behind this distrust given are: 1.Younger people tend to be more arrogant that their elders; 2. Younger people tend to be more dishonest than their elders; 3. Younger people tend to show less concern or respect for others than their elders; 4 Younger people tend to quickly sell out any values they once held for profit than their elders; 5. Young people tend to be more inclined to pander to too many groups and usher in what is perceived to be immoral than their elders; and 6. Younger people are perceived to be incapable of unifying all groups.

 

With the upcoming presidential elections, the majority of people 50 years and older feel that Senator Obama doesn't appear to have the ability to hold the traditional Democratic coalition together as well as Mrs. Clinton might and many of the undecided feel that on November 4, 2008, that they will either stay home or vote for John McCain based on his having those values they believe an elected official should have.

 

Doesn't points 1-6 sound likeDC Mayor Adrian Fenty in a nutshell?
