Is the future conservative?

Some reports are pointing to GenZs being more conservative than liberal (depending on which polls you adhere to) and the fact that conservatives are having more kids than liberals, what's your take on the political future of America?

    The SJW and identity politics is ruining the Dem party.

      Is that why so many blacks voted for him compared to other Republicans?

      If your biggest concerns are your personal taxes, then you clearly can't see the larger picture of politics. I need my government to solve problems. I don't think that taxes are the answer, but certain private sectors are taking advantage of the government and individuals.

      A 20% change in taxes is outrageous, but I need highways without being littered with potholes. I need my public education system to be high quality in every neighborhood, not just a select few excelling and most being horrible. I need all of my fellow Americans to be able to pay for a broken leg and not hobbling forever because their parents couldn't pay for treatment. I'm from the southeast and the blue collar class suffers. My sister is a nurse practitioner and told me that a blue collar worker had to be coerced by his wife after a week to seek treatment. He wanted to avoid the cost, but had a broken nose and 2 broken eye sockets from a tree chipper accident. My brother in law broke his ankle 10 years ago and didn't fix it, so now he just wears tight boots and struggles through the pain. He can't take time off and hardly can pay for a surgery. People seriously avoid the healthcare system at their own expense and it is a questionable standard of living.

      Your whole assumption is that the government does a better job than private agencies. Call your local DMV and you'll change your mind.

      You don't understand, I'm not saying that the government needs to fund or make the system. We just need problem solvers and smarter policy.

      Healthcare is not an optional service and there aren't economic alternatives that exist like which brand of car or type of furniture to buy. You don't really have a choice.

      Also, only the CA DMV sucks. In Georgia, registration and tags are $20 with a line that is 15 minutes long.

      Our politicians are lazy and will instead protect the lobbying interests instead of individuals. We allow rampant and legal corruption. Slowly over time, public pressure can beat lobbying but it is way too difficult.

      Furthermore, colleges take advantage of our government by skyrocketing tuition rates. A ton of people use federal aid. The government pays the interest directly for years while you are in school.

      In the end, our government is shelling out a ton of money and as the costs increase, they pay more. A problem solving senator would say that's a bad deal for America. If the government stopped funding loans, colleges would have a harder time rising the price

      The government subsidizes meat and dairy at 70% for corporate farms. Americans have now integrated that into every meal and have no clue of the real costs. Our government is making a bad deal and we eventually will pay for it

    I’m guessing conservative, but not sure what it will actually look like. I don’t think it’s more MAGA. Both sides are crazy and moving fast in opposite directions. But I think the silent majority (centrist voters) are being pushed away by upcoming Democratic policies that forget that the majority of Americans aren’t gay, Muslim or urban. Centrists are getting tired of identity politics.

    I prefer a centrist Republican that doesn’t care about gays or guns, but Americans are too stupid to vote for that. Primaries only work to elect an extremist in the general election.

      The majority of the country is literally urban. It’s 80% of the country. But our electoral system puts extra weight on low population areas which artificially skews US electoral politics to the right.

      What’s your counter-statistics for population? The 80% figure is the US Census Bureau.

      I agree with you - it's fact. But Dropbox will just live in his own bubble, this is old news from the industrial revolution

      You said so yourself. The voting system skews for low population areas.

      The census also defines suburbs as urban, which tends to be more conservative. I live in NYC and love it, but I’m not blind to think that 80% of the nation lives the same way.

    What are you basing this on? Pew seems to think their views are similar to millennials.

    I think many "Western" countries will cease to exist in their current form and anticipate tanks in the street by 2035.

    lol @ “depending on which polls you adhere to”. Might as well just say “according only to the polls that agree with my preexisting beliefs”.

      Let me guess, you believe the first poll you see? The results are mixed...

      Let me guess, you go through polls until you find one that you agree with.

    Gen Z isn't becoming more conservative, so much as the definitions of progressive and conservative are changing

    Gen Z is being anti-authoritarian, and the progressive establishment is the current authoritarians, but Gen Z isnt any more conservative in any fundamental sense.

    In a social sense, theyre definitely more liberal than past generations. Remeber: gat marriage was illegal until five years ago. I never even saw a trans person until I was 23. But Gen Z for the most part is totally cool with both of these groups.

    And as for fiscally, I'm skeptical that Gen Z kids are old enough to understand econ nevermind having an opinion on it
