  •  The Me Generation, Part II... (3.90)
    Although that isn't totally fair, every generation is a Me Generation at my age (I'm 17, and annoyed as hell that I'm 10 months too young to vote for John Kerry and Martin Frost).  Oh well.  Hey, I designed the ballot for my school's mock election and I'm Vice President of my school's Election '04 Club (as well as being VP of my class).  Our election club's president is 18 and will be voting for the first time.  He's a big Howard Stern fan and will be voting for Kerry as revenge for Michael Powell.  It's amusing that he and our club's sponsor (a radical feminist) are voting the same way, despite the fact that they get into arguments about objectification of women every meeting, but just goes to show what a big tent our party has, when Howard Stern and Eminem can coexist with NOW and GLAAD types.

    Who says young people are apathetic?

      Not me, Deaniac. Not me. Damn, you brought tears to my eyes.
      •  You are right (4.00)
        This generation is not one of apathy. I'm only 16, but I've done all that is physically possible to ensure that Kerry wins this election. I've played my part, because I know the stakes I have in whoever wins. I live in a poor family, so every time an issue is brought up that does not affect the majority of people, I feel it connect. I'm ready for this election, and I have a great feeling. I can almost feel it in the air; the atmosphere is changing.

        I've done my part, and if a 16 year old who cant vote cares enough to call hundreds of Ohio voters and work to get people registered, I damn well know that thousands who CAN vote can do so as well.

        Grassroots organization. The rise of the internet. The new generation.

        Get ready, because it's the end of the world as we know it... and I feel fine ;).

          I felt it shift, hum, 6 days ago and have been irrationally optimistic since then.

          your part of the world.

          I once, just at the end of clinton's presidency, had a class tell me they wanted someone else to do their thinking for them because it was too much work.

          After that I never again gave them a writing assignment topic ever.  Dammit, they would think in my class if I had to beat them with sticks.  They are all junions now, incidentally.

          except the one in jail... but we won't talk about that.

          Just another sheeple wondering what the flock everyone else is doing.

      •  It took me a while to understand your reply... (none)
        My sig line is a bit corny.  My post brought "tears to your eyes?"  Um...thanks!  By the way, I dressed as a Deaniac for our Halloween thing at school Friday.  Put on my old Dean shirt and my Dean for Halloween button.  I wasn't thinking, because I was going to go work at Martin Frost's office later Friday, and because I was supposed to be a poll greeter for the last day of early voting, I had to go home and change first, so showed up about fifteen-twenty minutes late.
