There is slight doubt that millions of young Americans want to get good jobs, they want to end their student debt, they want to punish Wall Street for its behavior in stacking the deck for themselves and against the rest of America. I am 85 years old and have witnessed young Americans suddenly become fighting liberals who demand purity from those seeking office. In 1968, millions of young Americans blamed Vice President Hubert Humphrey for failing to persuade President Johnson from immediately ending the war in Vietnam. For some strange reason, a vice president lacks such power over his boss.
The end result is that millions of young Americans refused to vote and Richard Nixon became the president. We are today at a similar point in time. Yes, Hillary Clinton is not perfect. She has made mistakes along the path to seeking the presidency. Then again, who has not? Reality, is that a failure to vote for her means whoever the Republicans nominate will win. And,THAT means, the Supreme Court will continue denying the right to vote, it will continue allowing the wealthy to use their money to ensure the top one percent remain the top one percent.
Hopefully, young Americans will learn from past mistakes. Hopefully, that is.
