If in doubt, vote young
Given the decisions of today more than ever will impact the next generation, this idea is that we should try, in any election, to vote for the youngest competent person on an election ticket. There are two reasons for this: Younger people have more adaptive thinking than older people whose minds are more often set in stone. Hard policy decisions are more significant right now than at any time in history. Younger people, more than even before, will be the ones that are going to have to live with the consequences of which policy levers are pulled today. So, if you are standing at the ballot box and thinking of flipping a coin, maybe you will remember this idea: If in doubt, vote young.
