quite the opposite, i'd say, on both counts.
oddly enough, as young people grow older and gather more experience, they increasingly vote conservative. Must be something to do with the responsibilities of raising children, I figure.
of course, those who choose to remain childless do tend to have a "me first" attitude and continue to vote Democratic/liberal/leftist. I suspect they're completely out of tune with Universe -- every tribe in human history has made a big deal out of protecting their children and for darn good reason -- children are the tribe's future or failure.
which really makes the Democratic pandering to absentee fathers a huge puzzle to me. Why would lawmakers continue to 'protect' deadbeat dads from the costs and work of raising their children??
