Senator Speech reaction

I had AP American Government my senior year, every day all year for 1 1/2 hours. I had issues and the importance of voting shoved down my throat. There would be weeks where all we would do is watch C-SPAN and other news channels. We had endless debates and had to attend countless local speeches. I get it: being active is important.

The senator said nothing that surprised me-I've heard it all before. He just re-iterated what many of us already know to be important: having no voter registry is archaic. A person may not think their vote counts, but what happens when more people start to have that mentality?  Allen Kukovich was right: "whenever you don't participate, you give even more power to those in power."
