4. Where's the Choice?

My point was that there sometimes isn't even an actual choice, though. Many millennials simply do not have anti-war, anti-fossil fuels, anti-corporate choices available. It's often the case that the decision to make is how much war we want, rather than if we want war at all. The decision is how much influence the oil and gas industries have on climate-change discussion -rather than if they should have any influence at all. The same thing could be said about issues across the board. Many, many young people will turn out in droves if they feel like they're given an actual choice between the past and the future (see: 2008). Democrats should seize upon this opportunity, and upon this vastly untapped constituency, by billing themselves as a real, and true progressive choice.
