Here’s a video that goes into quite a few insights of the shifting demographics of America’s voters and the issues of focus going from social issues (gay rights, marriage, morality, etc) to economic issues (economic freedom, honest money, jobs, free-markets). The internet—the only place where a true free-market economy still exists, and why the likes of Jay Rockefeller want to dominate it—along with Ron Paul’s focus on economic issues and personal freedoms being two sides of the same coin, have only accelerated this shift exponentially.
While I don’t like how the producer of this video seems to give legitimacy to the Hegelian dialectic of the false left/right paradigm, I can see how he wanted and, perhaps, needed to base his message around the idea of Democrats vs. Republicans. To be fair, he does say that the millennial generation has taken notice that both political parties have outright lied to them. Strictly speaking for myself, I don’t think that one man can turn this whole ship, called The United States of America, around. Why? Because real change will never happen until people become active in politics, well educated and aware on the real issues, and are brave enough to take the actions that should have been done years ago.
Very soon, as the economy worsens—which it will—more individuals from the millennial generation are going to realize that things aren’t ever going to turn around; that their collectivist movements, formed around the feelings of anger and frustration over a lack of jobs and dwindling income earning potential, has failed; that college was a complete farce and a really, really bad joke with the punch line being debt slavery.
So what’s the solution? Awareness, that’s the solution. Setting the intellectual foundation for a maverick movement through awareness and education; and what about a dollar collapse, those of you who are savvier, are wondering?
Nobody knows when it’s going to happen, but its coming. Exponential growth of debt-based fiat money chasing limited world resources, trillion dollar weapons of mass financial destruction interlocking the entire banking (financial) system and global economy, with a ridiculously widening gap between the rich and the poor, and unsustainable generational dynamics of the youth being dirt poor while the older generation is getting ready to retire to take money out of the generational ponzi-scheme, known as social security, is simply UNSUSTAINABLE. And that’s the cold truth. Something has to, and will, give.
