If there ever was a great commentary on our apathy as a nation, it's the movie Swing Vote. I just watched and I have to say that I was impressed with the message.
- The main character slowly realizes that his vote really does count for something and that the issues actually have real effects on real people.
- The candidates slowly realize that they are prostituting themselves to one man - just to get elected. The Republican who goes green and endorses gay marriage. The Democrat who goes pro-life and anti-immigration. Both end up being disgusted with themselves.
- The media who are more obsesses with sensationalizing than actual reporting.
