Get out the Vote! Defeat Bush!!!

The extremely low percentage of voter turnout in U.S. elections is something that to those of us living in Puerto Rico (and to those living in Afghanistan) must be hard to understand. It is as if the U.S. had lost faith in the very democracy it wants to spread all over the world.

And I can simply not understand how any Republican could be elected president if there were a half decent (by world standards) voter turnout. If each American decided to take it upon himself to see that three other persons went to vote (not much of an effort) we would not be discussing whether Kerry might beat Bush, but only counting Mr. Bush's last days at the White House.

Please, make an effort. Help George W. Bush back to Crawford!!
