Political Idealism Still Alive
By Weston Phippen
Salt Lake City, UT – If you're over 40, you may have grumbled a time or two about "youth." Those young people - they're so apathetic! They'd rather listen to their I-pods than pay attention to politics! But every election, candidates assemble teams to make phone calls and to canvass neighborhoods. These teams of volunteers are usually made up of young people: activists, recent grads looking to pump up their resumes, philanthropists and idealists hoping to change the world.
