    Not only did this make me cry, but it made me so excited. For years now I have felt a difference in the young people in my family. The older kids (24-28) voted Obama and they follow it closely, debates etc. But I have a niece who doesn't turn 18 until 12/15/12 and all of her friends are in the same boat. I never expected the reaction I am seeing, she cried! She and her friends have actually cried because they will not have the opportunity to vote for our President. I don't know about you, but I don't even remember who was president when I was 16yrs old! I was in my early 30's before I saw the importance of being involved. I am so proud of the young people in my family and very ashamed It took me so long to realize how important the vote was.

    Republicans piss on you and tell you it's raining, Democrats hand you an umbrella!
