Lifeguard, You are right we need more young people to represent us. It is bad because all the people currently serving now are very old let's face it. Before anyone gets into a twit here!!! I meant it not as a discrimination. It is reality even older people I spoke with want younger people in with younger views. They are out of touch with the world. All these people want to go back to the 80's because the 80's were good. I don't know it is when all this was starting to brew. Heck, it might have been a great era. We need to remain focused on the future. What the heck did Reagan do? I believe not a whole lot. I am 39 and don't remember the 80's. My era was early 90's and yes we had it great then. Still, we should go forward not backward. The problem we have for young representatives they are clouded by greed and capitalism as well. Paul Ryan is 42 and he is so corrupt. Young or old no one seems to be in touch with reality.

I don't know who it was aimed for and I can't explain it but seems like all the ideas now are recycled from the Clinton era and the 80's. Why there are no new ideas out there that is beyond me. It does not pertain to all old people. Living in Florida there are lot who are so old fashioned. I know many who are older and have young thoughts. It just so happens that majority of our leaders who are older are doing nothing. Look at the country the way it is going there is not one idea that no one ever heard of yet.

On another note, there are many young people who don't give a flying @#$%^ about anyone but themselves as well. So, It is just the way our greedy heartless system is operated.

   I never said that JP should not address their issues. If we align ourselves with recycled issues people are going to think we are just using old ideas. I do believe, the older people should be the one we need to help the most. However, we can't help them if we use Clinton Era ideas. Those ideas worked for that time period. Things were difference and fairer. Times were not as tough as they are now. Of course, I know the incredible damage they are doing. Then the time to act is now. Fist we should make Medicare totally free. It is supposed to free as from taxes and not pay at all anytime. Second prescriptions should be free for seniors. Third, Seniors should also have SS not taxed. You earned that as a citizen so it should be tax free. Gee no one ever thought of that one before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For the young students and all students. Student loans should be written off and or  as well declared on taxes because our youth as well as our college students are the future leaders of this country. Gee No one brought that up. I believe in Rocky he has good ideas. We have to try to not align ourselves with anyone and be our own identity to many people want us to merge. We should be different and not say we are close to this person or that person. People are not going to know the real JP.

I believe in fair balanced and compromise.

I think people are having trouble coming to grips with the changes that have occurred since the 1980s. The Soviet Union is gone and China has become an emerging power, climate change has become an extremely serious problem and we are running out of time to act, technology is replacing many humans on the job and it allows people all around the world to compete for many of our jobs, the Internet has totally changed communication and life style, cells phones have put a computer in the pocket of most people, in war there are smart bombs, drones, and other technological innovations that changed warfare, social media has changed what we mean by socializing, the concept of privacy has been challenged. Older people have to adapt to this changing world while younger people have grown up in it. We need to face the world that is and not cling to an image of the world the way it was. That is proving to be extremely difficult.

Thanks, Robert you understand. I did not mean to make people angry. I am a law student working hard to help those people. If we keep going backward even in a good era like the 90's we will never go forward. It is true.

  No Difference,  First of all, I apologize for not stating my points clearly enough. In plain English, here you go. 

Your quote "the issues that Clinton's adminstration never really addressed?  Like what happened to single payer for instance?  Why is it so wrong to continue to fight for something the public has a right to but is being denied?"

  This is exactly what I meant. I  never praised the Clinton's or even said what they did were great. However, at that time more people were doing well back then. It might been the start of this mess. It was not recognizable as it is now. I do understand what your saying. However, I feel we can't go back and revisit those issues that some dumb politician did not feel was necessary. That would be recycling the issues. Those issues do not fit in a 2012/2013 world. .Even though, they were never utilized, it would be like we are copying from older politicians. Sorry, to get you in a pickle, I don't want the same people constantly running our country. That is not fair having the same two families BUSH and CLINTON making all the decisions. It would be called communism/socialism. Clinging to former ideas whether used or not is attaching the country to the past.

   Second point is the single payer system. I am all for a better healthcare or single payer whatever you prefer to call it. I want it like GERMANY, AUSTRALIA, AND CANADA, ETC. The kind of system where it comes out of our taxes. Not the system where your paying twice for everything or even a one time payment every month. There should no payment. Hello!!!!! The capital gains tax from corporations in Canada and Europe fund their health care 100%. Like Canada and Europe, our capital gains taxes should be funding the health care 100%. See no one brought that up. Americans will never get corporations out of their lives. I do not support corporations and never will. They should be contributing too it all. We could also look at what has been going on in Seattle for a while now. What they have is a kind of COOP with health care. I was reading that it works. That is the only type of paying health care system I will ever support. So even if, Clinton thought she started the single payer system, it would still never work because it is a phoney system. The single payer still has the corporations involved in it. Either way you look at it, things will never change unless we stop the corporate funding. Again I am with you about the Clinton's in the 90's. I believe in all or nothing with health care. We have to stop settling for less from these do nothing politicians. We have been living in a world where people can't ever get a whole of ANYTHING AND THERE ARE ALWAYS CATCHES TO EVERYTHING. Let's eliminate the scam's and get on with a brighter future. I have worked for a health care company. The unbelievable fraud which I have seen is scary. Man made of course. I do know first hand even if it is a single payer the corporate health care companies will continue to run it with no regulation and at their own say. I don't trust any of it. Germany, Australia, and Canada are Government run and regulated. Regulation is the missing key which America will never ever achieve unless we get rid of the corporate voice which is too powerful.

Ok!!! I meant. The truth is there are older people with more modern views and some with older views just like some young politicians who don't have modern views  either. I agree with No Diff on the social media part. That's where we agree. I don't like using technology too much. I am 39 just turned last week and people call me old. I am not old but still young. However, compared to these young guys I might be. To be effective JP has to reach all voters and give each generation something important to their lives. There are many young politicians who don't even have a clue. There are  older ones who are modern. It is how you perceive things. I do feel Rocky is a great choice for all ages.

I guess you could say using technology, and particularly social media is almost like making a pact with the Devil. Facebook is probably the worst company. Talk about being greedy. The recent news about changing the rules so Instagram can make money off people's photos without people having any say in it is just another example. Where does this end?  Young people have pretty much sold out to the corporations and I think we pretty much have to accept that. The 1960s are not coming back. Once the musicians sold out it was over. It's the music that binds a generation together. Can you imagine Neil Young selling his songs for commercials? The corporations have won the minds. There are some people on the edges still fighting but it appears hopeless. The beatniks are history. As are the hippies. This is the world of American Idol and its copycats. When the next Bob Dylan emerges maybe then there will be hope. Still waiting.

the right to do what you want to yourself as long as your not physically harming some one else should be added to the plateform so like if you want to drugs you can or if you want to brink ink or something you can cause its your body add that to the platform
