It's not just young people supporting things like legalizing marijuana anymore.

We HAVE 3rd and 4th parties: Independent, and Green! And yet the lemmings keep voting Dem or GOP and complaining about the system, and tell those of us who vote "other" that we are throwing our vote away, or giving victory to the assumed-by-poll winner. WE are doing what THEY are too cowardly to do! Reject the 2 party system. Stand up for yourselves, damnit and stop just accepting the status quo as the way it is.
