RAW was being his usual dry wit self there. If you haven’t changed a *single idea” in 30 years, you’re conserving your ideas, not liberal about them. In short, you should be learning, expanding, growing, changing and not stagnating.
At least that’s my take [that it was sort of an anarchist statement].
If instead it was a rehashing of, “if you’re 25 and conservative, you’re this and if you’re 45 and liberal you’re that”, then I’d be very disappointed in RAW for simply rehashing a common (but incorrect) sentiment.
It’s grandstanding but think about it: What’s a politician supposed to do? Stuff that their people want to see. Represent.
I’d say he’s representing – and a whole lot better than any politician that was ever supposed to represent me in 46 yrs.
He put on a good show, gave it necessary attention. For a vote? Sure – he’s a politician. But it’s better than empty boasting.
