I have noticed that I’ve been following politics closely since I graduated and have been without full time employment. I find myself actually caring about potential GOP candidates, specifically their background in the economic arena. I have also been watching the Obama administration closely to understand what is being done to solve the unemployment problem.
I guess this is the first time I really felt passionately about any kind of political or economic issues. I spoke in a previous post about how in the ’08 election youth were extremely excited, but I don’t remember ever really discussing political issues. This time I want to be 100 percent informed, especially on the unemployment issue.
Although the situation is pretty bad, I still have the hope that my vote could make a difference. I haven’t given up on our democracy yet and I think that many of us 20-somethings feel that way. I believe that’s why we haven’t had any mass riots like Greece is seeing.
The poll last time was a great success so I wanted to know: what do you think? If you have more to say please let me know in the comment section!
