In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
The following is a real Facebook post that just appeared on my wall, from a young man in his early 20s:
My career as a liberal Democrat has come to an abrupt end. I now have to pay taxes and not get anything back… I actually have to pay for all that crap I voted for… I’ve made a huge mistake.
It is so frank. It is so succinct. It’s raw! Normally I’d be glad to say “I told you so,” but he seems in real pain. I like that he doesn’t play victim and blame someone else. He made a mistake. It’s on him.
Is this a trend in his age group or is this young man having an individual epiphany? Has anyone seen any real numbers to suggest an age of enlightenment for those born 20 years ago?Published in
