An Embarassing Proposal: A 10 Million Dollar Voting Lottery

By Remy Benoit

We are apathetic as a nation with the precious right to vote often not being used.

Matt Miller and Fortune.com put forth a proposal that should make us think while we should be embarassed that such a proposal is even deemed necessary to get out voters:

Rock the VoteĀ—And Win $10 Million!.

Wake up America - have a cuppa and get to the polls. Show the world some things just can't, and shouldn't be, bought!

How can we justify not voting when we are sending our forces, and some of them are dying while others are suffering life changing injuries, to give others the inherent right to vote?
