So a few days ago I asked a few people from my generation if they were planning on voting for president in November. And out of the 10 people I asked, none of them said yes. This shocked me, and concerns me. Why would people take such a laid back approach to the future of the country they live in? Do they really believe that the president doesn't have a role in how the future turns out for all of us? Isn't our current standing in the world and our involvement in Iraq proof that my last statement is true?
The way I see it, is that it is more important for a person my age to vote then a senior citizen. Please don't take that the wrong way, as I think that senior citizens should also vote, and they are effected by the actions of the government. However they have a less likely chance of making it through the new president's four year term then a 20 year old would. Why wouldn't the 20 year old want to be involved in picking the President who will make decisions about the rest of your life? We have to think about whether or not social security will be around when we're of age to collect, we have to think about how people in other countries see our country, we have to deal with the depletion of natural resources. These are all issues that are wrapped up in the thing that people call "politics". They may be something you have learned to hate, but I don't understand how people can just ignore there futures like that, when it's so easy to just cast there vote.
