Thank you Kottke, for finding this: In his new music video, My Vote Dont Count, rapper YelloPain provides an excellent 4-minute summary in the sprit of Schoolhouse Rock of the importance of voting, particularly in midterm elections and with a focus on Congress and state legislatures.
Or maybe we should consider that we need to:
– fix the system so that primaries aren’t rigged
– overhaul our gerrymandering and electoral college problems
– focus on local elections, where votes matter more
Voter shaming instead of dealing with the many problems means politicians and the media are making sure people’s votes don’t matter.
