Government Belongs To The Youth

When I came of age, the carrion cry was "Don't Trust Anyone over 30", of course as you age that becomes an irrelevant statement, but it still holds some truth in politics. Not that 30 is the cut off number but it represents the idea that youth is bursting with ideas, vision, imagination, ingenuity and conviction. No matter how radical you are in youth, you mellow with age, which is not always a bad thing, but it is not always a good thing. This past election of Barack Obama was accomplished with a mobilized Youth Vote.

It has been many years since the Youth Vote actually showed up in mass, took action, took interest and voted, and because of that vote they changed not only the direction of the United States but also the world. It is of utmost importance for the Democratic Party to keep these young people engaged and not let them drift away from the Political Process. It is the obligation of the Democratic party to offer the youth a voice in the governance of our nation and to encourage them and nurture them in running for Political Office.

The Politics and Direction of this Nation will drastically change when the vision, imagination and dedication of the youth are a visible part of all branches of Government. The Election of Barack Obama is only the first page of the first chapter of the new American Political System which will be fed by the vigor and idealism of the youth of our Nation.

It is refreshing to see the youth of Barack Obama shining with the idealism and purpose. Although this may soon be shattered by the Economy that he will inherit from the Republican Bush Cheney Administration, hopefully his youthful vigor will pull him through the dark days that lie ahead.
