2009 saw a turning point in American politics and history with many young adults engaging and participating in the presidential election process. I'm pretty sure this is one of several reasons why President Barack Obama won :). Now we have an "Occupy Wall Street" movement sweeping across the nation. Regardless of your political ideologies, they will remain nothing but ideas if you do not participate in both your local and national elections. How else will the rights or reforms you want come into existence if you do not vote.
So go out and register to VOTE!!!
