Joining the ranks of drug pushers are what I would call polling-place pushers. These are people who run get-out-the-vote drives or at least agitate in that regard, and they are more to be feared than any corner dope peddler.
As an example, pollster John Zogby recently lamented how the young people who catapulted Barack Obama to the presidency are now losing interest in voting. He said to the League of Women Voters (LWV), I truly am worried about todays twenty-somethings. I have seen them move from hope and grand expectations for themselves and their world to anxiety and disillusionment.
Thats one way of saying it. A more accurate way is this: Theyve made that common transition from naivety to cynicism, which often happens when youre slapped in the face by reality especially reality you voted for.
This transition is no surprise, as naivety and cynicism are actually two sides of the same coin.

They’ll still be out in force (albeit somewhat smaller in number) and once again cast their vote for Obama.
Liberalism is the natural inclination of the young and ignorant. Who else are they going to support?
You’ll have people like John Lewis (D-GA) on “urban” radio stations on election day screeching that if ‘black folk’ don’t get out and elect black politicians ‘white folk’ will sic dogs on them and turn fire hoses on them.
Those 20 somethings can’t find jobs and are disillusioned by our political savior. Yesterday, I met a 60 year old senior that identified herself as a liberal, but was fed up with Obama’s & California’s tax and spend debt (death) spiral. But she didn’t know about Romney. It was an eye opener.
There should be a verbal test right before people get their ballots, who is your state congressman and state senator? Don't know? Can't vote!!!
2008 was Season One of American Idol.
This campaign is Season 12. It’s just not the same.
Not always. The first time I stepped into a voting booth, I voted for Ronald Reagan. . . .
Racism persists in the modern day because black mothers tell their black children that no white person will ever like or trust them and Palestinian women still hate Jews more than they love their own kids.
It is not a genetic trait. People are taught to hate based on identity.
