i applaud the idea of advancing our voting process into the 21st century. We should be leading the world in this area.
i also agree we've lost sight of the importance of voting and need to celebrate it more. Unfortunately we're a country full of people more willing to spend time waiting in line to buy the newest iphone than to vote.
The desire and dialog Alex gets at is vitally important, but he's wrapped it in, "We're giving up profits to vote." Thats a misstep. Causing his idea to feel hollow to those who have given up so much more.
I believe money is what currently keeps our political process from advancing into the 21st century. The lack of it. The excess of it. No one believes our political system is on the level any more. Why? Because of money.
It's time for us all to more clearly understand our civic duties and the sacrifices these duties ask of us. We should all be casting our vote daily by supporting businesses that TRULY understand the definition of "Corporate Citizenship".
It's our responsibility to be the referee in the middle separating profits and politics and helping them find their way to opposite corners of the arena.
