How many people, especially when they are young, dismiss politics and social activity as pointless? "What does it matter?", "It won't make a difference", or "It doesn't really effect me" -- all seem to be the crutch of the apathetic.
James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles have proved all of those presumptions 100% false with their undercover videos outing of ACORN. O'Keefe had made this video:(http://vodpod.com/watch/1237160-planned-parenthood-racism-statutory-rape) alleging racism and statutory rape corruption at Planned Parenthood. There are supposedly more than one video, but I've only found one to date.
There is another set of videos and outing of Planned Parenthood around the country covering up statutory rape. (http://www.cassyfiano.com/2009/03/planned-parenthood-gets-caught-covering-up-statuatory-rape-again)
This pro-life investigation was done by a UCLA college sophomore, Lila Rose, was only covered by religious newspapers and publications. Read here at: http://www.catholic.org/national/national_story.php?id=31004
We in a new era of journalism, or lack there of.
ACORN may be the tip of the iceberg of corruption, but one thing is clear: you can make a difference. A couple of twenty-somethings have out done the mass media and, most importantly, they are NOT alone.
We can all make a difference, we just need to embrace our God given talents.
