I never dared to be radical when young
For fear it would make me conservative when old.

there's that old saying, if you're not liberal at 20 you've got no heart, if you're not conservative at 30 you've got no brain.
or something like that.
hehe... :) i love the radical old people who come into my work ranting and raving about supersize me
and how horrible bush is, how they'd rather get no social security than privatized social security. there're a few of them up here, and they always catch me off guard because of their age. i guess i am an ageist, in a way. :/
but yes, i've heard that liberals become more conservative as they get older. i don't think it has to do with getting wiser, as much as it has to do with what becomes more important to you in different stages of life.
yes. you are exactly right.
that's it right there. it's just different stages, different priorities.
