Hello all – I’m back. A sad turn of events to be sure. I’ll have more about my journey with Gov. Romney later. For now, I’ll be posting some of my analysis here on the site.
First, age. Maggie Thatcher once noted that the facts of life are conservative. Her distant predecessor, Winston Churchill put it this way: “Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and anyman who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.”
I’ve played with that model a little bit below noting that 40 seems to be the breaking point here in America. To wit: if you’re under 40 you’re likely to be a liberal – over 40 – a conservative.
