“Good Morning, all you tar sand blockers. This is John Gatti here on Climate Watch Radio Show giving you the latest news on the (raises fist) fight against Keystone XL! As most of you may know we are in a global crisis. Global warming is getting worse and is affecting our climate. I don’t know about you guys but I think winter decided to come early this year and not on its own account. Mother nature is trying to tell us that what we’re doing is wrong, but the government doesn’t want to listen because they’re corrupted. Corrupted by the green stuff. I’m not talking about the weed here people.”

The people I interviewed or tried to said they would not speak or did not want to be recorded.
Me: Hello, my name is Dakota Foster and I wanted to know if I could interview for a school project about voting.
Johnson: Sure, I would love it.
Me: Okay, thank you. What is your name?
Johnson: Jeanene Johnson
Me: Okay, and how old are you, about?
Johnson: I am around 30 years old, haha.
Me: Alright, thank you. Let’s start with the questions.
Johnson: Okay, let’s go.
Me: What motivated you to come out and vote?
Johnson: I actually got to talk to older family members whom had to fight for their right to be able to vote because they were Black &/or women. I would be doing them and myself a disservice if I did not vote. Besides, my vote does actually count.
Me: What would you like to see changed in our political system?
Johnson: More bipartisan cooperation.

Johnson: Every. Single. Election.

Johnson: TV and radio. Oh, also Facebook postings.
Me: What was the most memorable campaign ad that you have encountered?
Johnson: Of course I am now drawing a blank but it was an ad for Obama.
Me: Are you always sure of who you are going to vote for when you walk into the booth or are you still deliberating?
Johnson: Always sure.
Me: What changes do you hope to see in Philadelphia as a result of this election?
Johnson: More support for teachers, financial aid for students
Me: What impact do you feel that your vote will have on the election?
Johnson: I think that the candidate that I selected is the best person for the task ahead. I feel that he (Barak Obama) will continue to make sure that people can love who they love, women’s rights and a woman’s body are protected.
Me: Did you learn about voting in school? If yes, did that impact your willingness to vote today?
Johnson: Yes. But mostly it was emphasized by my mother and grandmother.
Me: Okay, that’s the last question. Thank you for taking the time out to answer them. And I hope you have a wonderful day.

Learned about systemic and individual change:
Role of individual creating and sustaining change:
Relationship between self and changing the world:
I think The Communist Manifesto explains a lot about this. Political issues and struggles. If the general public (proletariats) joined arms and decided to overthrow businessmen (the bourgeois), they may see the change they want to see. But, until people understand the power they have, there will never be change. I guess government and big corporations make people think they have no power, but we actually do.
I guess I would say the advertisements that were put out on the T.V., radio, pretty much everywhere.
No. I do not vote regularly in every election, but the important ones I try my best to be there and support who I think should win.
No, I do not know why we vote every Tuesday.
I've seen more ads about campaigning on the T.V.
I'm almost always sure who I am going to vote for when I walk into the booth. If I didn't, I'd be wasting a lot of people time trying to figure out who I want as president.
I learned a bit in school, but they never really focused on it so most of it I've forgotten.
