Get Out and Vote
On this topic, I always thought my old man was a 100% spot on. It's easy to sit on the sideline and take shots at everyone. But, if you don't like how things are, be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. The least you could do is vote. You don't even have to go to the polls, just get an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
I see President Obama is out visiting colleges trying to get young people to vote. It seems that the very people who were instrumental in the president's victory, are now contemplating sitting out the election. Are you guys nuts. You might be disillusioned about the president's ability to deliver his agenda, but take a moment to check out the other side. The Republicans have spent the last two years just saying no to everything except when it comes to giving tax cuts to the wealthiest 2%. Well trust the King, the other side will give you plenty to bitch about if they become the majority party.
Remember my dad's admonishment, If you don't vote, don't bitch. Now get off your ass and go vote!
