me at 18: i'm voting for obama
my parents: oh, you'll get more conservative when you get older
me at 30: i think we should wipe our ass with the constitution

@garbados actually now that i think about it that doesnt really apply to my parents because they were both far less well off than their parents. but they were able to buy a house on a very modest income. i dunno


@dankwraith similar story. i feel like the level of material surety they experienced, though diminished, helped them to have faith in the system (by, in my parents case, blaming themselves)
