As a young voter, I know that I am not heard in the political system. I also know that voting is a way for my voice to be heard. Politicians do not normally reach out to, or even listen to young Americans, because so many of them are not registered to vote. This is something that can be changed, simply by taking up to 20 minutes out of your day to vote in an election.
I understand that many aspects of the potlitical system are are corrupt, and that it can be boring to listen to. But this is our future, our next four, or even eight years of our lives. If you chose not to vote in this election, do not complain about how the government is being run. You have your chance to voice your opinion, and every vote counts. This is a close election, and Pennsylvania votes will more than likely weigh in heavily this year. At this point, we do not know which way our state will lean. Do what you can to make your voice heard and to make an outcome that you want!
I personally have issues with boh candidates. I will not vote for John McCain because he has suppoerted Bush’s policies 90% of the time. And with Obama, I feel that he is a racist. I will likely vote third party this election.
It doesn’t matter who you vote for, just as long as you vote.
