Dennis Prager has said on many occasions that no one, when they are older, thinks that they were wiser when they were younger. It is natural that the more people grow and learn and experience, the more wisdom they have. By and large this is true, but of course it must be said that there are those exceptions that establish the rule.
An interesting poll publicized recently in the New York Times shows voting patterns and outlook on government in relation to age. The results are very interesting.
I, for one, don't think it's coincidental that the older (wiser) people get, the less they trust government.
As Nick Gillespie pointed out in his recent article about how BO is screwing younger voters, the old (foolish) axiom of the 60's is rightly turned on its ear: Don't Trust Anyone Under 30!
