How does one counter the conservatism that seems to overtake people as they age? [View all]

Last edited Tue Dec 11, 2012, 02:33 PM - Edit history (2)

People become more risk averse. Less open. Less liberal. Anyone have any ideas how we can take this time of life change out of favouring the GOP hands?

Edit: (I should have said 'overtake some people' and 'some people become less open, less liberal'). I did not get the responces I wanted and it is my fault for being too vague.
