I saw many moms here on CM almost proudly proclaiming they didn't vote and don't follow politics because "it doesn't affect me". How can you not see that what is going on in our state and national capitols DOES affect you and WILL affect your children?
Why can't we see that our apathy is a big part of what is destroying this once great nation? Our system of govt only works when we have an informed and active electorate.
I just don't get it. Can someone explain it to me?
Twenty-two million single women did not vote in the 2000 election. In Florida that would have meant over 200,000 additional votes would have been cast. The 2000 presidential election was decided by 537 votes in the state of Florida. Many elections in this country have been decided by very few votes. In fact, women won the right to vote in the United States in 1920 by a single vote cast in the Tennessee legislature. In 1960, John F. Kennedy was elected President of the United States by less than one vote per precinct. One vote does indeed count.
