I'm encouraged to see more young people elected into American government.
The progresives like

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (the youngest House member to be elected into Congress).


US government is packed with "career polititians, who are old and invested in the "same o...same o".


Little change that serves the money establishment.




I watched Michael Moore's latest movie "Fahrenheit 11/9 ", that shows how young people are getting more involved with social issues, using social media and activism.




Think about it......


in a 100 years, none of us will be here and government should represent the future NOT perpetuating the same policies over and over.


Our youth have a larger vested interest in the future than us older folks.


New ideas and ideals will move government toward a better path and they should be more apart of this.

You are contradicting your own statements!
Young people should have a career clear of politics to at least the experience age of middle management, be in position of responsibility, say 37.

Canada's Tredeau, a greenhorn young politician piggybacked to the top job on his daddy's fame.
Look at the mess he has put the country in this moment of time.
Age and life experience are the prerequisite for a carrer in politics.

What statement is contradicting?
Why should our youth be gagged till a certain age?
The youth have something older people do not....
That is wide eyed optimism.
I find older people have lost that and give in to the system.
Growing up, children view of the world is one of possibilities and wonder.
Somewhere along the line, we older folks have lost that.
Politics should be "How it should be" NOT "what it is now"!

Three years ago we had thousands of young thugs blockading, occupying and closed the main road arteries of the business centre of Hong Kong for three months.

Young people are too easily influenced and will do stupid things they later regret terribly.
With no life experience, young people are easily manipulated and become political tool monkeys used by seasoned politicians.
