1. We Need (Actual) Change

If Democrats were able to show real contrast between themselves and Republicans, then maybe my generation would be more likely to get out there, get active and vote. Where are the anti-war millennials supposed to turn when the choice is between McCain-types who'd turn the entire Middle East to rubble and the Democrats who've supported Obama, who's bombed more countries than Bush ever dreamed of, nearly every step of the way? Where are the environmental-minded young people supposed to turn in a state like mine, Texas, when the choice is between a Republican party awash in oil money and a Democratic party who are equally as hooked on the frack-pipe? What about DREAMers? Where are they supposed to go when Senate Democrats ask the President to delay executive action on immigration?

The list goes on. Millennials are the cutting-edge of American progressivism today and we need candidates who realize this and are willing to act upon our concerns.
