    I don;t think it will make a difference.

    Generically speaking, the older people get, the more conservative they become, maybe due to realist vs idealist / protectionist / nationalist / identity related reasons as people age. This can be seen in data, where over the decades younger people have always voted for more liberal ideals, yet older demographics are more conservative.

    Seeing as those younger liberal voters can't be dying at a significantly higher rate than younger conservative voters, the assumption is that people turn more conservative over time.

    ~Cancel $2 Scheme
    ~Reduce fare for ALL age groups
    ~Annual cash handout like Macau
    ~Give money instead of over-priced TV set

    Just idiotic. It is not the job of the government to splash cash indiscriminately.
