It is relatively easy to mobilize young people, but what you will do after they are mobilized?
Nobody can deny the fact that today's US economy and society are facing great challenges that deserve a charismatic leader to mobilize the nation to deal with them. Should Barack Obama be elected as the next president, the temptation to abuse his power is even greater than that for George W. Bush. It is not that he does not have good intentions but it is the fact that his power may be so great that it is out of his own control. Our only hope is that he is a wise enough man who fully understand the situation and has the courage to resist the temptation as George Washington did. On the other hand, will the young voters become angry should McCain be elected as the next president?
