The Kids Aren't All That Interested

DHinMI is wondering whether young voters, who seem to support private accounts, will help Karl Rove create the enduring Republican majority he seeks.

Nope.

Young voters barely care about politics, Social Security excites them about as much as Golden Girls cliffhanger. From 15 years ago. Seriously -- whether or not my generation likes Bush, and the election results resoundingly proved we don't, we're not going to flock to his side because he'll grant the opportunity to transfer 4 percentage points of payroll taxes into private acZZZZZzzzzzzzzz.

I like my peers, and I don't mean to feed the stereotype that we're apathetic, but most of us are and, even among those who aren't, the idea that pension plans are going to spark some sort of realignment is absurd. It ain't* going to happen.

* See? I'm a populist, sho' nuff.

"he'll grant the opportunity to transfer 4 percentage points of payroll taxes into private acZZZZZzzzzzzzzz."

I'm not so sure; this sounds like the kind of thing that might appeal to the Dungeons & Dragons crowd.

...or so I would imagine.

Ezra,
I'm surprised, really I am. Young people, when all was said and done, participated in higher rates (among the age group) than ever before - and supported John Kerry and Democrats at higher ratres than any other age group.
Don't buy into this "we don't care" meme - a lot of young people don't care, but there are way, way, WAY more older people who don't give a fuck, no matter how you slice it.

I continue to believe that 95% of our generation has no fucking clue what Social Security IS. If you told the average college kid that the government pays you several thousand dollars a year once you get old, I think they'd be shocked.
