Why do so many Millennials support a crusty old rich white Boomer like Bernie?

    consider the time-line....

    Bernie's generation was raised by parents scarred by global war and depression... To their credit, their parents dedicated themselves to creating systems aimed at preventing such things....but in doing so they insulated them from the adversities that defined them as "The Greatest Generation"...

    every ensuing generation has been raised to reject the previous as being less-civilized, less-educated and less too "warlike"... every ensuing generation has been raised to treat adversity as an affront their rightful "protected" status...

    the generations raised after the Cold War dedicated themselves  almost entirely to their own feelings (consider how much of the rhetoric here is based on feelings.....consider how many political and social conflicts are based on the notion of "self-definition" vs. cultural, historical, legal or ... dare I say.... scientific definition)...

    to these generations, Bernie speaks like a wise old disciple....a wise man from the mountain affirming everything they've been raised to believe... the State doesn't exist to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic like that "outdated old Constitutional Oath" says... it exists to protect us from adversity and to affirm our most-immediate feelings at all times...

    Simple, it's because the moderates have let them down. They still don't have healthcare insurance, they still owe tens of thousand in student loans, they still live with their parents (because they have to), and so on.

    So to date, if the moderates can't fix that, maybe democratic-socialism can.

    That's why.

    Apparently being "woke" is about picking the correct old rich white guy.

  • Because he promises them free stuff, so they don't have to earn a living and they can continue their studies on essential oils

      The math ignores the standard exemption of $12,400.  Of course it also ignores social security and state taxes, so it is probably close enough.

    Bernie is from the Silent Generation. Named because they were scared to have any opinions since McCarthyism would have them sent to the electric chair for having the wrong opinions.

    He's promising them free stuff.  Some people are gullible enough to believe it when a politician promises them free stuff at no expense to them.
