Response to CaliforniaPeggy (Original post)

29. I would not ask him a damn thing--I'd tell him what I thought...

I'd give him MY perspective as a life-long retired military Democrat; I'd urge him to at least decriminalize that weed, to get health care to everyone even though MY ass is already covered, to work on improving education from K through college for all Americans, regardless of income status--and include a plus-up on the maths/sciences while we're at it; to make sure that no one goes hungry while we find a way to get better nutrition to poor kids--apples instead of applesauce, that kind of thing.

Here's how I look at it--he's got my vote, he doesn't have to "prove" a damn thing to me. He might find it useful to know what geezers like me think, though. I think a lot of people assume that after a certain age, people turn into Grampa Amos McCoy or Aunt Bea and we develop a bad case of CRS (Can't Remember Shit). Truth is, most of us have the same wild hearts we did at sixteen, even if we're a bit more temperate in our behavior in our later years.
