“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”-Adolf Hitler. This must be the exact thought running through the minds of all the political parties in the fray to win the 2015 General Elections.
The ‘POWER’ of the youth will again be tested in the next general elections. Today, youth has the power to transform our nation; the responsibility of transformation, progress and innovation lies on their young shoulders.
Various parties in the country are relying on the youths as critical factor in winning the polls. The decisions of these elections will be in the hands of the youth in a big way. Well, all the political parties just need to play their cards right to attract young voters in the General Elections 2015.
The youth should cast their vote after serious thought on the nature and policies of the parties. It is time for youths to wake up and take a stand! Let’s set aside negative attitudes, and concentrate all our energy on getting to our common destination.
Let us unite to ease the pains of today while working for the gains of tomorrow. Let us set aside cynicism and strive for the good society that we know is within our reach.
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
Let us be in one accord now to build a society worthy of our children. We have the talent, intelligence, and ability. It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
The challenge is great; the goal is clear; the time is now.
