Feeling a bit jaded about voting this year? Wondering if your vote will even make a difference? Well it does. The second you decide to not vote in this election is the second that you decide to give up your voice, your power.

Watch this video from the good folks at and see what happens to the world if you don’t use this opportunity to make your voice heard. Or we may just be in for the “two most terrifying words in the English language: President Palin.” Think it’s a little dramatized? Well, I don’t want to find out. Get out and vote!

Watch the video here. And make sure to log in to Facebook. It makes it even more awesome.

“If you don’t vote, I’m going to invent a time machine and come back and kick your dumb butt. It means everything! Remember to vote. Only you can save the future!”

    Soros is Chairman of the Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Institute and a former member of the Board of Directors of the Council on Foreign Relations. He played a significant role in the peaceful transition from Communism to Capitalism in Hungary (1984–89)[5] and provided Europe's largest-ever higher education endowment to Central European University in Budapest.[6] Later, his funding and organization of Georgia's Rose Revolution was considered by Russian and Western observers to have been crucial to its success.

    George Soros has made his mark as an enormously successful speculator, wise enough to largely withdraw when still way ahead of the game. The bulk of his enormous winnings is now devoted to encouraging transitional and emerging nations to become 'open societies,' open not only in the sense of freedom of commerce but—more important—tolerant of new ideas and different modes of thinking and behavior.

    Soros was thirteen years old in March 1944 when Nazi Germany occupied Hungary.[14] Soros worked for the Jewish Council,[7] which had been established during the Nazi occupation of Hungary to forcibly carry out Nazi and Hungarian government anti-Jewish measures.[15][16] Soros later described this time to writer Michael Lewis:

    The Jewish Council asked the little kids to hand out the deportation notices. I was told to go to the Jewish Council. And there I was given these small slips of paper…It said report to the rabbi seminary at 9 a.m….And I was given this list of names. I took this piece of paper to my father. He instantly recognized it. This was a list of Hungarian Jewish lawyers. He said, "You deliver the slips of paper and tell the people that if they report they will be deported."[17]

    1. george is an investor, perhaps smarter than gov'ts and he has used his money to HELP people
    2. He was not a collaborator…he was a child forced to do things that he did what he could to undermine
    3. He doesn't buy ellections any more than any other campaign contributor…if you are going to call it campaign buying then we have to say the same thing about everyone that invests on the right…and I would be all for that…but just because someone funds a side opposite of your views doesn't make them evil…you can't get funds from corps on the right and then call some rich guy helping the other side evil..he's just make the playing field a little more eve
