Economist about Young Voters: Why Ron Paul?

On January 7 of this year, I wrote an article on the idealism of younger voters who flocked to Ron Paul’s campaign for the Republican Party’s nomination for President. My opinions have not changed. I am convinced that there is a bond between him and voters who are 60 years younger than he is. I can think of no other nationally known American politician in history who has bridged this gap, but with only a minority of hard core voters, ages 30 to 77, in between.

This has something to do with bills that are coming due. The younger voters are expected by the older ones to “pay their fair share.” This means staying in the multiple Ponzi schemes that constitute modern politics all over the West.

Ron Paul’s philosophy of non-interventionism at home and abroad is the moral philosophy most suitable to an age-based, non-violent, political revolution. Think of it as this: a revolution of pulling the Ponzi schemes’ plugs.

Note: this is not just an American political scenario. It is universal in the West.
