A belated thank you to the youth of America

During the campaign we heard that the enthusiasm of young people from 2008 no longer existed.

But you came through. Not only with your votes, but with a clear show that the ossified message of the Republicans is dying.

You are more tolerant and accepting: of diversity of race and religion, of gay rights, of reproductive rights, of live and let live.

Funny, this used to be the mantra of the Republican party before it was taken over by the Dixicrats. But "Live and let live" should extend to the bedrooms of consenting adults and to doctors' offices.

So thank you, from an aging baby boomer.

5. It's our pleasure!

After all, we have you, the baby boomers, to thank. Who better to teach us to stand up for what we believe in and form our own opinions? Thank YOU!
