If I could be granted just one wish this year, I would harness the enthusiasm that Americans have shown for their soccer team and release it in the 2014 elections. Getting enough young people to show the same passion to get out and vote would send a clear message to those in Congress that they have been elected to preserve and protect our rights. We live in a democracy, not a plutocracy in which money rules and rich people dominate politics.
