A Letter To The Obama Millenial Voters

OK, this letter is not from me at all, but the writer expresses what many of us who are pushing 50 believe that the millennial voters did by voting for the Dear Leader not once, but twice.
Sadly, many of those voters are now going to feel the wrath of the big government that they wished for.
But here Kurt Schlichter in a pretty damning article has to tell these people, in that fatherly I told you so kind of way that you, you millennial voted for this so this is what you get.
And what do you get for wanting the vaunted Obamacare?
The bill.
And you know what? It is to eventually take care of  those of us pushing 50 and beyond.
I guess I should thank you millennials. But wait! Your not going to buy that insurance policy that you fought for? Oh, because you are what, 23 years old and still living at home? You still are on your parents health care plans? If you're not living at home, you are actually out of college, working, hey maybe even married, you look and say WTF?! and figure, you can fork out $95 for the fine or one percent of your income, whichever is more. It is less than the bronze O-Care policy.
Anyhow, you millennials are too busy trying to figure out how you are gonna pay those student loans to worry about all that health care stuff, right?
Anyhow, Mr. Schlichter just nails it right here with this:

I have been told that being hard on you millennials will turn you against conservatism, that I should offer you a positive, hopeful message that avoids the touchy problem of your manifest stupidity.
No. There's no sugar-coating it - your votes for Democrats have ensured that you are the first generation in American history that will fail to to exceed what their parents attained. Embracing liberalism was a stupid thing to do, done for the stupidest of reasons, and I will now let you subsidize my affluent lifestyle without a shred of guilt.

As I said this is what a father would do and say after trying to help stop a child from doing what is so wrong.
But here, here is where I not only agree but have come to the conclusion that college, college is not for everybody:

Your time in the indoctrination factories trained you in a form of  "critical thinking" that is neither. 

Spot on, Mr Schlicter!
College has become nothing more than what radio talk-show host Dennis Prager calls Secular Seminaries.
While the majority that attend college really can care less about politics, most of those that are active are on the left. Very few are openly on the right. The professoriate, overwhelmingly left-wing even where one would think that politics don't matter. Very few open right-wing in the professoriate. So many of the don't care crowd are easy pickings for the lefties.
Thus that is why we have a current crop of lefties that seem to dominate among the millennials.
The bottom line from Mr. Schlichter and your humble blogger is that you reap what you sow.
And that is the point of this letter to remind those millennials that their vote has consequences.
