Do you pay any attention to the election at all? Or do you simply not care? If you don't care, what should the government do to get you to care?

I think everyone should pay attention to the election. Why would anyone not pay attention? Our economy is falling apart. fuel prices are at all time highs. People are losing their homes at record numbers. The price of food is astronomical. There are record numbers of job losses in the last six months. If a person can not see the dominoes falling it should be the politicians for they are the ones who have created it. We voted them in to look out for our best interest,voice of the people, and they steady doing every thing under the sun to correct it. They are pointing fingers at every body else so they don't have to take responsibility for their own actions. Of course I am watching the election! I care about my future and most importantly I care about my kids future.

Yes, I pay close attention to what both candidates are saying and promoting because there are important issues at stake right now. Aside from the economy and the situation in the Middle East, I live in Florida and we're passionate about a few things down here...like protecting our coastline from off shore drilling because our economy is dependent upon tourism and one spill has the potential of destroying our economy for many years, protecting the Everglades which is not only an important natural habitat, it's important to our water supply, and the National Catastrophic Insurance Fund, which our hurricane prone state severely needs because of high insurance rates. As for what the government can do to get people interested in the election, I don't think it's the government's role to make people interested. Either they care of they don't.
