You know who else rocks? Rosario Dawson for starting Voto Latino and Josh for taking several months off from very busy independent label Nacional Records to work for Voto Latino. I thanked him for his commitment to getting people to vote. I expressed my frustration about the fact that so many people, especially young people don’t vote. Statistics show that voters over 70 vote in greater numbers. They are often more conservative. Not showing up at the polls allows them to have power over our lives and the future of the country. I didn’t expect his response. He explained it frustrated him too and that he was more motivated than others because he had already lost 3 high school classmates to the war. Three? I can’t imagine. That’s just mind blowing. It just another example (an urgent one) of why we all need to be more actively involved in this election and future elections.
Regardless of how each person votes it is just vital that we all participate. As further encouragement and just plain entertainment here are some funny videos to check out.
Sarah Silverman and the Great Schlep
And even more hysterical is Ralph Nader and the Obama Girl
