How can young Americans restore their faith in our political system?
As a first-time voter in the upcoming 2012 election, I'm trying to follow political campaigns and formulate opinions. But recently, the only things that have caught my eye are scandal and corruption. Lobbying and political red tape have taken the government further and further away from serving the people. In a country where more votes are cast for the season finale of American Idol than for the Presidential Election, how do we restore faith in a system that seems broken?
