Voting and Activism Help

Has the vituperativeness (if that's a word) and planned confusion that surrounds our politcal process discouraged you? Don't despair. First of all, it's nothing new, we've survived it before and we will again. Secondly, resources do exist to help you figure out what is going on, and despite what some people think, you probably ARE smart enough to figure it out. The right to vote - if it's important to you, vote in every election. That's the best way to make sure you'll always be able to. Don't let dead people speak for you! (If you're from the St. Louis area you know what I'm talking about!)
