219. No, what I am saying is that I think eminem speaks to a larger group
than just petulant 13 year olds on this one. He speaks to me with this song, and I am about as far from that demographic as you will get. But he is tapping into a rage that allot of people have right now, that our views are not being represented in politics or in the media. Same as when F9/11 came out and there was a huge stampede to the box office. And I believe that the video will motivate some of the 18-25 year old 'unlikely' voters out there, just like F9/11 did.

You know, it is easy to dis allot of these non-voters as stupid or whatever, but most of the time, no one has ever taken the time to explain to them why voting is important and how it relates to their lives. I have been standing on street corners trying to do just that. But this video explains it so much more eloquently than I ever could and eminem has a huge audience. This video does a very good job of connecting the dots on allot of issues in a way that will be understandable to young people.
