No Country for Old Voters

These older people you refer to may not be acting unselfishly; they may be explicitly voting the way they are, saying what they say, doing what they do, for their children and their grandchildren. Like you, I disagree with them wholeheartedly, but to say they’re doing it for themselves is quite the assumption.

Consider this: A man born in 1941 this year emerged as one of the brightest champions of progressivism in modern politics.
