I have seen this wave of change work in my own home. My husband, before marrying me, did not have an active relationship with the voting process (he wasn't even registered at the age of 29). Once he saw how important it was to me as well as slowly being exposed to "politics" at large, he decided it was his time to step up. He, at the age of 43, became a political monster, gobbled up any info he could about topics and forming his own opinions rather than take an opinion forced down his throat by the political machine. Now that his eyes have been opened, they can no longer be closed. FINALLY! While he and I do not sometimes agree on certain topics, that is okay because he finally HAS an opinion.
