While We're on the Subject
If you are, have or know a college student who may not have registered to vote or hasn't gotten it together to get their absentee ballot, send 'em to this site, Vote For Change.
And if the college student you know is jaded, apathetic and cynical--like the 'indifferent son' of Passover--try this on them (found on the most unlikely of sources--a Mason's website):
Then there is the simple son who is indifferent to knowledge because he is not concerned with finding truth and is, therefore, the one who can be controlled and enslaved. The simple son asks, "What is all this anyway?" The danger of tyranny arises when enough people are indifferent to the truth, when there is a general failure to delve beneath the surface and consider statements carefully. Then people are subject to lies and deceits through which tyrants win power. Indifference to knowledge leads to the loss of freedom.
Ok, 'tyranny' may be a little strong, but you get the idea.
