  •  Agreed.... (9+ / 0-)

    Old people do NOT get a pass, they are as culpable as anyone of any adult age.  If you were smart once, unless there is a serious medical reason, there is no excuse for 'age-related' stupidity.
    If you were able to use critical thinking once, then it must be continued, it keeps the mind supple and stops the lazy slide to irrationality.
    No pass for old people on the stupid question.
    There is no excuse to be willfully stupid at any age.

    •  And demography is with the Republicans: (0+ / 0-)

      It's assumed the Republican Party is doomed demographically because of the emergence of a non-white majority.

      But I've read that, extrapolating from current aging and health trends, about 40% of the US population will be suffering from dementia by 2050. Demented voters are Republican voters.

        I'll be over 100 in 2050, and I may be thinking about other things than the 40% of voters with dementia.
        Frankly, I'm concerned with the voters of today (who presumably don't have dementia) and still make the demented decision to vote completely against their own best interests when they vote for repubs.
