41. Yes, fear, but also a different view of war than younger people
I think they also have a sense that in war time you don't mess with your President. Many of them were alive and even serving or had a family member serving in WWII. Also don't forget the large number of American Jews that came to this country during that time. They often worship American Presidents because they relate everything to that time in their lives. The older generation in this country sacrificed a great deal. some of them lived through the Depression and think we should all sacrifice everything right now for the war effort. Again, it is an age thing.
