Let's pretend you are going sailing. You don't know how long you'll be sailing, or even where you are going, but you know one thing: You have no choice but to go sailing. The only problem with your voyage is you've inherited a boat from people who are older than you and they've royally @#$%^&* the boat up. It leaks, the sails don't work, there's not enough food or water, the maps and charts are outdated, there are NO life preservers, and the sailing lessons you took from them utterly sucked...because the people you inherited your boat from were morons when it came to sailing your boat.

Good luck on you voyage.

Your brain is wrong. In years past that may have been true, but that was during a time when American developed adults, and from those adults bloomed leaders. America doesn't develop adults anymore, so therefore it doesn't develop leaders either.
You have been handed the awesome responsibility of taking care of the fools ahead of you, yourselves, and your children. It's happened to other generations in the history of mankind, and now its happening to you.
Let's look at who you have to look to for guidance:
- pre-Baby Boomers (1930-1945): They're so caught up in making sure they get their Medicare and Social Security they don't give a rat's ass about you. AARP has got this age group so addled with handouts and group-think mentality that their impending mortality renders any concern for you moot.
- Baby Boomers (1945-1960): The biggest, most wasteful, most selfish, generation ever born. They spent their entire lives whining and complaining because they had to grow up and turn Captain Kangaroo off so they forgot the part about growing up. The hippies of the 60s are now the assholes of the twenty-teens. Look around at who's in charge, yup, pretty much all Baby Boomers and look at the shape of your future. Thanks Boomers, you screwed all of us. (In the interest of full disclosure, I was born in the last month of the post-war baby boom, so yeah, I suck too. At least I'm honest about it) The Baby Boom has produced zero leaders and very few adults.
- Generation X (1961-1979): They were so jealous of the Baby Boomers that they forgot to forge their own identity, but luckily they saw how annoying the Baby Boomers were and were able to develop a few adults and even fewer leaders. Paul Ryan, Marco Rudio is one, Rand Paul is one, but then again so is Barack Obama.
Got my point yet? You've been sold a bill of bogus goods. The leaders you are electing are not leading. The Democrat Party has been rotted from the outside in by socialist experimentalists, statists, and financial idiots who have decided to cast their fortunes with the hot air bloviating from Washington, DC.

The Republican Party is filled with country club wanna-be's and old people who were never popular in high school and now all they care about is that everybody likes them.
Republicans and Democrats have not produced a leader in thirty years (read: Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill), so if you're waiting around for the "adults" in the room to clean up after themselves, it ain't gonna happen.
So listen up young persons who have been left quite the mess to clean up for the fools who came before you: You've been handed the responsibility, decline it at your own peril.
Don't listen to people who tell you the Democrats and Barack Obama are doing things with your best interest at heart. They're not, they're playing politics with your futures and anything you are told to the contrary is a lie.
Don't listen to people who tell you that the current fools in charge of the GOP have your best interests at heart. They don't, because if they did they wouldn't have squandered the responsibility we gave them in 2010.

Think for yourself. Look at the world around you and the people in it and then judge for yourself what you think. Don't let the media lull you into ignorance so they can sell soap.
Learn about what made this country great, learn about the mistakes it made and the steps it took to correct them. You are the progeny of a country with a fabulous history that has temporarily blinded itself with foolishness. Figure out your own future, because try as they might, the fools currently in charge cannot take your futures away from you.
Socialism does not work. I am confident that you cannot show me a case in history where it has been successful. The only thing that works is human beings taking care of their own futures while maintaining a shared sense of civic responsibility. This is what America was founded on.
Take over you local political parties. Hit the streets. Tell people you want a future that does not involve handouts and being treated like dogs to the state. Don't whine, live your life, make your future.
The current crop of leaders have proven that they are incapable of doing the simplest government function of budgeting its income. Do you actually think its a good idea to put your futures in their hands?
Take the country over. I trust in your desire to be free from the capricious whims of politicians and scoundrels.
