Years ago I'd heard self polling among journalists identified themselves as 85% liberal, and educators even higher at over 90% liberal. The education profession is having a decided influence on our nation's youth. It's supposed to, regarding their education ... but they're not supposed to be indoctrinating their politics. As long as the education profession does not reflect the political balance of the nation such indoctrination will occur, even if not intended (but I'm not sure it's not intentional).

Hollywood would have you believe the counter culture was a lot bigger than it actually was. Most young people were not hippies and protesters. Most of us couldn't stand those filthy swines, even if we did engage in the excesses of the cultural revolution.

Is it just me, or does a candidate actually have to reach out to constituents in order to win elections?

Seems like a foreign concept to Mitt Romney.

In a phone call with supporters, Mitt Romney blamed his loss on Obama buying the support of key demographics--like young Americans--with political “gifts”:

“In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups...With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest, was a big gift. Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a...
