Quick Link "It’s time to listen to the voice of maturity'

The largest voting bloc are seniors, those that have lived through countless elections and who are the most active in elections such as the upcoming midterms.

Recently I was informed of a site, JohnEricksontv who believes that seniors are given lip service but no one really listens to them, they do not have a voice that can be heard above the fray.


As sure as the sun will rise, a swarm of seniors will go to the polls. Historically, voter turnout for the 60- to 70-year-old group has been at least twice that of their 25- to 30-year-old children and grandchildren. Yet we seniors are being taken for granted. Politicians have pigeonholed us as red or blue, and instead expend energy courting young souls who flock around the latest social media-powered cause.

Visit the site, browse around. It is enlightening.

Our elders can still teach us a lesson or two, perhaps we should listen to them a little more often.
