From an Oregon Resident
While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 7 young people (22-26 years old, 5 males, 2 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.
I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions. They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.
 Three voted. Of the four who didn't, none was registered to vote.
 None of them researched independently either candidate.
 All were for Hillary but preferred Bernie.
 Why the Democratic Candidate?
• "More things are taken care of."
• "Time to have a woman President."
• "Democrats aren't sexist or racist."
 Six of them live at home.
 All are under their parents insurance.
 Two have "real" jobs.
 Three aren't working, nor are they trying hard to find a job either.
 Parents pay for everything in their life or subsidize it.
 Six get money from mom or dad every month.
 Two have been on unemployment for 6+ months.
 One is at Portland State U, doesn't work, and parents pay for everything.
 All 7 said Trump is a racist/sexist. I asked to cite proof ... "That tape, man!"
 When I asked, as a man myself, “Have you ever said anything like that when you've
been hanging out with your buddies? All five males said "Yes."
 Would you say it if you knew you were on tape? All five answered "No."
 What's the difference? I asked. “You've all said bad stuff like that. Does
that mean you hate women and are a sexual predator?" Nothing. No answer.
 None could tell me how our government works ... they didn't know how
laws are passed, how the House of Representatives or the Senate work.
 None could explain how a bill is passed.
 Only one could tell me the difference between legal and illegal immigration.
One of them said, "Legal immigration is when you immigrate legally." Seriously.
 None could explain the purpose of the Electoral College or how it works.
In 10 minutes they felt they had explained everything. Nice kids ... but so ignorant. I know
some awesome, phenomenal young adults; but I'm afraid the majority are like these seven.
Too many participation trophies, too much coddling by parents and teachers.
In 1944 18 year-olds stormed the beach at Normandy into almost certain death.
In 2016 18-year-olds feel unsafe because words hurt their feelings.
This country is in deep ****!
