This is ONE OF 4 responses to VC 19 John 5 ("Jury Duty")...

I strongly agree with John's opinion that voting is the bottom line of the system.

California is a case in point. We are a state that is rapidly approaching having no majority ethnic/racial group, our numbers of school age children are growing at a phenomenol rate, yet our school system is in disarray, Hispanics and Asians are barely represented in our political system, etc.

Why? In our last election 83% of the people who voted in California were white, and half of those were over the age of 50.
