I'm glad they didn't vote.

If they did MTV would have basicly told most of them who to vote for. They probably wouldn't do any thinking on their own, just ape MTV. They're better off finding some direction in life then they would be better off voting for something that counts to them, rather than doing it because some rapper or rock star says so.

Viva La Bam!

Yes but as said "America is a two party dictatorship" and "Kerry is the lesser of the two evils"

I voted and I'm in that age group, and I'd like to think I was well informed. But, as my brother put it, by them not voting, it makes your vote count that much more (btw, he just recently became of voting age so wasn't able to vote in this election). He has a point to some extent. I don't believe MTV presented the facts of the election very well. They tried to use the Draft as a reason to get kids aware of the election. But I don't think that was very intelligent because both candidates opposed it. Then we had Green Day and Eminem making songs about the election. Even with Eminem's anti-Bush song, Mosh, it still didn't seem to make much of a difference. I wouldn't listen to a bunch of entertainers to make my decision to vote, but I'm sure some people think otherwise.
