From your description you aren't really a boomer. That explains a lot in your favor. I get the categorizations point fully, and eventually that was to be my point as well. Your economic analysis is spot on, but you do realize most intelligent people of all stripes concur. What many if not most americans don't seem to realize is that we have way more in common than not, and that the dualist biparty control is a lot of the problem, and contains none of the answer.
So---no answer yet to the trivia question? Anyone?
