Democracy Gets A Powerup
Posted on Friday, March 17 @ 16:09:46 Eastern by dUKEThere are only two truly powerful forces in America: Money and Votes
Ok, ok... So there's really only money. Which is why it's great that the Entertainment Software Association has stepped up to the plate and funded the Video Game Voters Network.
Seems like every group out there has an organized voice in Washington... dairy farmers, tobacco companies, gays, casinos, scuba divers, barbers, plumbers, buddhists, garbage men, and people who are allergic to bees. Some of them didn't even give money to Jack Abramoff. So why not us gamers?
If that seems a little frivolous when there are so many other pressing issues facing this country, just consider this: Your First Amendment rights are already protected now. Misguided politicians are wasting time and resources that could be brought to bear on those important issues in order to take away freedom already guaranteed by our constitution.
So sign up and write your senator. Their web site makes it awfully easy.
Will it really make a difference? You'll never know unless you try.
