I am very concerned that young people may be sitting out this mid-term election because of all the noise in the media. I hope they don't.
The official platforms (what they say they will do) of the Republican and Democratic parties, available easily on the Internet, are radically different.
The Republican platform scares me. It supports drilling for oil in the Gulf of Maine and eliminating things such as Social Security and Medicare. The platform supports less money for schools, police and fire departments.
It also seems like Republicans want to go back to the 1950s, before civil rights, mouthy women, embarrassing gays and inconvenient science.
I am horrified by their platform.
After reading both platforms themselves, I hope readers of all ages will agree with me and vote Democratic.
