-the expansion of drug use , then decided to perpetuate "war on drugs"
-living beyond our means(the credit card generation)
-domestic policies of handing over liberty for security(PATRIOT ACT) and many others similar to it
-the longest wars in u.s. history Iraq and Afghanistan and expansion of war powers to the president
baby boomers in general say that their generation caused the counter culture revolution which did a lot of damage to society with drugs and sex but they now think they can fix it by perpetuating the "war on drugs" to keep their children "safe" from the bad guys. It is the way they raised families to love credit cards and spending beyond their means...college loans, college debt, spending beyond their means to own a house, to do this or that...all of it is NOW coming to an end and they don't know how to handle it and who to vote for.
