You know what you should be doing right now instead of reading this sentence? Exercising your right as a citizen to shape the political climate of your nation.
The campus polling place is in the ICC and you should go vote there or convince other people to go vote there. Why? Because chances are that at some point over the next several years your going to get caught up in some sort of political argument and if you didn’t vote you don’t get to say shit. Washington is full of people who don’t get anything done. It doesn’t need to start with us.
If you’re so mind-boggingly politically disaffected that you won’t even vote in a national election or if you think you’re ‘too cool’ please read a book. You are not subverting democracy. You are not a conscientious objector. You are a lazy person with a dictionary and misunderstanding of your obligations as an American citizen.
