English speaking Australia requires its citizens to vote. Think about that this November when you complain about how stupid Congress has become but feel that you're too busy to go out to the polls and make a change. Also, those who want to squelch people of color to vote...thank yourselves in the mirror as the more you try to stop them, the more committed they are as a whole to find any way they can to get out and vote. Keep it up. Tyranny doth not have a long life. Case in point: Nazi Germany.
Be cool, be nobody's fool, and don't dismiss the bliss.
