I know you are painting with a wide brush with your statement about the youth, as well as PH23, but my wife and I (age 23 and 27) are involved
politically, we do care about our country and care what it becomes. I understand we are the exception.
On a given Friday or Saturday night we are watching TV or a movie at home. We watch the news every night (and surf the net for info), we are up to
date with current events that matter. Others our age (and in their early 30's) are out drinking and partying and know everything about Paris and
Brittney and Lindsay.
The difference is that we do not put celebrities or sports "stars" on these high pedestals. It is just a convenient distraction while our country
is stolen from us.
The ignorant youth I know (age 18-25) do vote in the Presidential election (not the other state or local ones ie they do it every 4 years) vote a
straight ticket for the Democratic party because of how they are brainwashed on their college campuses. They do not think for themselves (I am not
saying to vote for Bush or the Reps blindly either - just vote after research and vote your heart).
What I have heard so far this election cycle from them is how Romney and McCain are pure evil and the only people qualified and appropriate to lead
this country (and redeem itself in front of the world) is Hillary or Obama.
It's interesting...and damning...
