Topic: Huh , Vote !!


Every so often there is a push to get American (Minorities and others ) to register to vote then get them to the polling places and have them pull the lever , even today you have minorities and others in their 50's , 60's , and up that do not have a clue on how to vote , how is this possible ? this Country spends more money on FREE education then most other Countries combine , yet how is it that a person 50 years old does not know how to vote .

As an American living abroad, what was really shocking when I first got here was that Europe is that EVERYBODY votes. Back at home 40% voter rate would be considered good, here there would be accusations of voter suppression.
