A few comments assert that, simply by being twenty-something-year-olds enrolled as students, any opinions expressed are inherently without value as they lack the proper "real world experience". It's kind of funny; the alternative is continuing to rely on the idea of seniority and all of the utter garbage that comes with it. Wisdom is the result of extended study in all forms, be it academic, introspective, experiential... it is not, however, a given quality that everyone acquires in their mid forties simply by merit of having survived.
Considering the focus menial labor in past generations, I really do wonder where people get the notion that seniority bestows any sort of advantage. The world presses on, requiring the constant evolution of attitudes and systems of government, placing anyone with "real world experience" at considerable risk of obsolescence. Is it fear, then, that prompts such vocal opposition to any form of change? Good. Be afraid. The world is horrendously overpopulated. Obstructive parties would do everyone a service by ceasing to consume resources which may be better utilized elsewhere.
Whether or not McConnell is a racist, the indisputable fact is that he is unqualified. He is politician. He is a relic. He has no place in a center for higher learning.
