      GenX will mellow in it's old age and become more progressive?

      The '80s had better music than anything since.

      On the generational thing, I would hazard a theory that it's a demographic thing. Just like Generation Y [Millenials] are more progressive largely because we are more diverse due to the removal of the Chinese Exclusion Act and other immigration restrictions in the '50s and '60s, Generation X may be more white and Christian because that's the way the demographic change ebbed or flowed. Wondering what the highest demographic correlation with being a Republican is?

      Being a white married Christian. I bet a Higher proportion of Gen Xers are white married Christians than all the other generations. Add in a hint of Reagan cult of personality, and you've got a pretty good recipe for the most conservative generation out there.
