Fuck The Young They Don't Vote Anyway

Over my very long life I have seen the narrative about The Kids Today and voting change in two ways.

1) "Wow if only young people voted more we should do somethig about that" to "fuck them for not voting'

2) "Young people" redefined from 18-24 to <45.

Young people do actually vote in large numbers, turnout in 2020 was  high, their vote both in turnout and % is critical.

"Fuck'em if they don't vote for us" is a very selectively applied sentiment!
