6:30 Point of View on KX4 continued Wednesday night with a series we're calling "Inside the Mind of a Millennial." Sitting down once again with six students from NDSU, host Chris Berg used the opportunity to poll them on a number of topics including marriage equality, pot legalization, congressional term limits, money in politics, and the pigeonholing of theirs as an apathetic generation.

Below are some excerpts of the conversation that occurred on Wednesday's show. You can watch the discussion in its entirety by clicking the video above. You may also want to see part one of our "Inside the Mind of a Millennial" series. You can find that by clicking the link to the right of this article.

Host Chris Berg: "Let's say for you guys, obviously, the better grades you get, the better you graduate, the better job it will equate to. Leads to meritocracy in sports. Congress, it is no measure of performance. Should there be something that -- unless unemployment is at 5% or lower -- you don't get paid? You'll get paid less? There should be some sort of measure that impacts the American people."

Aarron: "I actually think that -- it might sound radical -- if there is ever a debt higher than 3%... that's what the eurozone uses... not that the South ever followed the rules. If there is a debt of more than 3%, then no members of congress are up for re-election."

Berg: "That will be powerful. Term limits: good thing, bad thing?"

Ian:  "I think it is something that Robert said. When this happens, Congress is looking at their next election. You take out having to look at your next election, it allows to you spend more time focusing on the people who elected to you represent them."

Berg: "What if somebody is great at what they do -- John Wooden -- students are outstanding? If you find somebody outstanding, why get rid of him?"

Ian: "He can run again in a few years after someone else had a chance. To have that door revolving, having fresh faces and new ideas come in, that's how we'll fix the problems we have."

Elly: "I think with along with the term limits is, you could be great at your job when you first get there, be a great representative or congressman, what have you. It's people that have been in 30 years. If you have had a job for 30 years, you're not going to want to change things. The country is so fluid. Things change all the time. Society changes all the time. When you have somebody who has been there 30 years, it's not relevant."


6:30 Point of View is an interactive and controversial opinion-oriented talk show on KXJB (Channel 4) in the Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota.
