  • When I was 18, politics seemed boring. I didn't go and vote,

  • I didn't pay attention. I didn't really care at what age people got their pension,

  • That seemed ages away

  • I was just starting out. I really had no interest in what politics was about

  • but I should have. The young are most affected. Most 18 to 24's don't care

  • who gets elected, and I'm not surprised

  • I once felt that way too. Why vote for a system that doesn't represent you?

  • Middle-aged, middle-classed. old men in old buildings. Too posh and too rich to care

  • about the small things.

  • From the same schools and clubs, to same suits and same tailors

  • to the same privileged upbringings with no experience of failures.

  • When we see them answer questions,

  • a chance they should be seizing, they forget about us and resort to playground

  • teasing, like children, taking part in a food fight

  • wasting words that have power on a false appetite that lies. That only wants first prize.

  • That cares less about it's people, and more what power buys.

  • But the government works for you, and this can all be resolved,

  • if you stand up for what you believe in,

  • and do your part to get involved. There is strength in your numbers. You are not the minority.

  • You only feel this way as you've been made a low priority by politicians who are chasing the vote,

  • They won't try and please you if they think there's no hope. So prove them all wrong.

  • Prove you have a voice. Do the unexpected and accept you have a choice

  • and vote! But first find out the truth. Look at their policies,

  • and how they affect the youth. This world is yours to inherit. it's more your future then theirs.

  • Don't let your life be dictated by the old and billionaires.

  • It's the young that pay tuition.

  • It's the young that fight the wars.

  • it's the young who need jobs or could end up living outdoors.

  • It's the young who adopt the planet. it's the young who clean up the mess.

  • It's the young that care for the old. So why do the young vote less?

  • You have a say, that needs to be respected. People are dying for the right

  • to have a leader that's elected.

  • So register to vote, be a part of democracy. Doing nothing and complaining

  • is outright hypocrisy.

  • You don't have to be a whisper, your voice's are real. You can be the generation

  • that gets a better deal. If you want to make a difference, you have to grow up.

  • Our country's fate is decided by those who show up.
