In recent elections, fewer than 30% of Oregon's eligible voters aged 18-34 have voted. As you are well aware, recent world and national events have indicated that American politics is being hijacked by right-wing extremists who will stop at nothing to achieve their regressive agendas. (for a cogent summary, see http://www.tompaine.com/feature.cfm/ID/7616).
The Bushites have already raised record sums for W's reelection campaign, and their massive tax cuts for wealthy individuals and groups are fueling this effort. The most effective response the progressive community can make is to work to reverse the dismally low turnout among young people (see http://www.tompaine.com/feature.cfm/ID/7605).
