Being 17 years old I didnt fully comprehend why every news broadcast opened and closed with some reference to the upcoming presidential election in November I was used to hearing about Kobe or Martha people I could recognize in the media I quickly realized they had been scooped up and dumped on the back burner for some senator from the north and this bushy guy from Texas After ditching the television for a while I figured the internet couldnt possibly bombard me with politics Boy was I ever wrong Ads search engines and web sites were filled with opinions strategies and more of the same coverage that was being repeated from the source I just left I gave up and planned on abandoning any source of news media until the middle of November after the elections I wanted no part of that what-so-ever Neither candidate appealed to me directlyor so I thought A few days later my CivilCriminal Law teacher brought up the fact that most 18-24 year olds in the United States do not vote My first thought was They are bombarded with issues from these candidates that dont even pertain to them Who really cares about Medicare when youre 18 Jeez But then he said this and stopped my thought process mid-rant You people dont vote because those guys talk about issues you could care less about They talk about those issues because they know you dont vote They put their money where the votes are and thats not with you After that my opinion changed and I proceeded to ask friends throughout the rest of the day if they were planning on voting in November Most said no so I proceeded to ask them why The typical answer was I dont really care I left it at that because I could see why the negativity of those people was still present They feel insignificant to these candidates and loose interest in something
