Is the current Gen X kinda of passed out!


Gen X – Political no-shows’

America’s young men and women! The so-called Gen X citizens! – Where are they standing when it comes to the pressing issues of the day? I’d surely like to know!

Issues like Obama-Care, Russian aggression, China’s aspirations, Iran’ nuke and even our domestic energy policy! Have they tuned in or tuned out? Or rather, have they they merely passed out! Maybe feasting on all the pleasures of a society where informational and sensory overload is the meal of choice!

The American’s of olden times were largely a hard working and frugal people who knew what it was to save a penny for a rainy day. After all, starvation for them was often just a week or two away! Work brittle and strong, they carved a hard existence out of a then primitive land where early death was a constant companion and hardship the daily shackle of life.

These men built this country!

Contrast those early people of our country with what is going on today. Almost half the population are no longer employed or are on entitlement programs or living at home. Ten thousand, sixty four or older citizens are retiring daily with many marching right into an overloaded health care system where a few are racking up staggering medical costs that grow larger ever day….

Meanwhile, our youth seem less and less inclined to take up the reigns of leadership….Do I blame them…I’m not sure…one thing that is for sure – American exceptionalism is pretty much dead! Party on dudes (extreme sarcasm)!
