You can't bitch unless you vote.
Plus, it really is very cool. I still remember every single election I've voted in, including casting my first presidential vote, for an independent candidate (Anderson). And then I went to Michigan State to a Jimmy Buffett concert, where the fog of illegal smoke hung so heavy over the crowd that you really had to drop, rock and roll to see anything. Luckily, we'd just come off fire drill season, so I was ready!
