You know, I'm not sure if it makes any difference at all but I can honestly say that it made me feel better to finally DO something other than just complain. As I stood there looking around that room, I thought about ALL the other people I know around my age that also complain.....yet didn't vote. If all of us complainers HAD, perhaps Ron Paul would have won Washington.

Great story, as I had wondered what it was like to attend a caucus. But it is sad that many of us complain, but do not actually take action. I used to be quite active in local politics, helping candidates to get elected, but then I got disgusted a couple of years ago, and told them not to call me anymore. And this was probably going to be the first presidential election where I did not vote.

But you are right, if we do nothing, then nothing will change. So I suppose I will vote, but it will probably be for Ron Paul, which here in Oregon will be a wasted vote, as by the time we vote in the Pacific Northwest, the candidates have been chosen, but at least I will be making a statement. Reading your story reminded me of why I never missed voting in a presidential election, because I always believed that if you do not vote, you have no right to complain.
