    Was it Face book ,   The soap opera ? What was the reason the began the devolution  of the maturity of the American voter ?  Or are the average voting age Americans becoming hopeless ,helpless snowflakes ? FACT , Socio -political maturity , ESPECIALLY on  the left , has  regressed at an incredibly fast pace in the last eight years ,. There seems to be no denying that .

    Defense ?

      Largely.  Its the daycare generation that was created when mothers had to go out and work to help support their families, and the fathers had to work or were in the military, dead,  AWOL or locked up.  Its the pablum culture the media has been spoon feeding also.

      There have been interesting studies done on it and articles written because of the increase of violence in class rooms over the years.   Social engineering, the 'deliberated dumbing down of America', and indoctrinate into ideologies by state education systems that has been going on for a very long time.   It was Rockefeller's education agenda for the new world order by programming in mass.  An education agenda Bill Clinton and Hillary pushed while president, and its been accelerated since.

    The only good and honest President was Kennedy. To vote for the rest of them  is immature to think that the country will get healthier and happier.

      Kennedy was an incredible  womanizer , a prescription drug addict ,  almost brought the world to an end with the Russians  ,  escalated the Viet -Nam conflict to it's final fiasco ,   and then P.O'd. the mafia , the Cubans and the CIA  enough to make them off him .

      Did I miss something ?

        I don't care what Kennedy has sex with or what he puts in his body, that is nobody's business.
        He has the only President to challenge the Federal Reserve bankers who now own your jobs, your home and your kids because you will never be able to payoff the national debt. You have privileges not rights, you have choices from what the Government selected for you. Wait until agenda 21 goes into power, then you got hunger games.

          The fact that Kennedy challenged the money changers and war mongers, asking questions that were never to be asked within the brutal reality of the military industrial complex, is why his fate was a bullet on that day exactly 53 years ago.

            The whole Kennedy thing has always interested me.  I think it was all about the casinos.

              Yeah, Phoenix it has interested me too. I have lived long enough to recall the assassination and its aftermath. I had been first in line as a JFK assassination  conspiracy freak.

                If a connection could be established between Ruby and Trafficante or Lansky,  I believe everything else becomes red herrings. Loner broke as a joke Oswald. I wonder what his frequent flier rewards would be worth. He sure got around.

                  Geez, this entire affair was a cluster-f*** from the beginning. I have spent more than a year or two obsessed with it.

                  For Oswald to solely accomplish the shooting flies in the face of the laws of physics. People say Oliver Stone's take on the events as depicted in the film 'JFK' (1991) was mere fiction. I still believe that  more of it is true than not.

                  As the man who played the prosecutor, Jim Garrison, is reported saying. " Kennedy's murder was planned at the highest levels of government to be carried out by disciplined cold warriors".

                  While the President insisted on the trip to Dallas to attend to his Southern flank in preparation for 1964, he was a lamb going into the lion's den.

                  This was hostile territory and everyone that should have been on their toes and alert on that day and immediately prior to it were, in fact, sleeping at the switch. So many pertinent clues and points of evidence were completely botched. Never has a head of state been so surgical removed, with so much of the evidence non existent and tampered with.

                  You know it is interesting  to speculate, every generation has its  defining event.

                  My Pop told me  that he was the same age that I was during the Kennedy assassination when he heard the news that Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941.

                  Perhaps, the traumatic event for the Gen x ers was the Challenger disaster back in 1986.

                  For the millenials, it has to be 9/11.

      Kennedy had an advantage as his reputation was fueled a great deal by his martyrdom and by a period of relative innocence among the AMERICAN populace. After his assassination and the quagmire known as Vietnam, that innocence disappeared and cynicism replaced it. It amounted to a much higher bar that every succeeding President had to rise above.

    "ESPECIALLY on  the left"  Not exactly a mature point of view.  My question is:  What's happened to civility on HP?  Hubbers so quick to label and judge - are a couple of things that make me despair over the maturity displayed on this site recently.

      Then you as many , must be blinded to the bias and hate generating  media of the last year and a half , I'm very sure that liberals are just as happy to keep the media where it is right now , fully in the favors of the far  left  , painting and spreading  the "evil Trump "message constantly , deliberately and  wantonly all along , The incredible bias of the media SHOULD bother everyone right or left !
