The Great Debate: Obama vs. Romney #Ignite2012

One of the most anticipated days in broadcast history has finally arrived and it will be aired on YoungVoterLive.com tomorrow.

For the very FIRST TIME: President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney will go head-to-head about what they think is best for our country and why they are the best choice for the  2013- 2017 commander and chief  role. To raise awareness  about this national debate, The League of Young Voters Education Fund has announced a special #Ignite2012 tour stop in NYC. Millennials are being encouraged to watch this debate and contribute to the #Ignite2012 conversation with provocative changemakers, BET host Rocsi Diaz, legendary DJ Jay Smooth, hip-hop historian Davey D, social media scholar Dr. Goddess, and many more.

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, October 3, 2012, 8 p.m.-11:30 p.m. ET for #Ignite2012: Debate Edition

During the first presidential debate, Americans can expect to hear about failed economic policies, healthcare disparities, wavering unemployment rates and general strategies to combat America’s current state of oppression. But Rocsi wants to know: “What else would you like the candidates to address?”

Send her and any of the panelists your questions, thoughts and concerns to @TheLeague99 before and during the livestream using the hashtag #Ignite2012.

[WATCH] Seth Meyers “Mr. President What Are You Doing?”

September 25, 2012 Politics No Comments

If it hasn’t fully digested in your system yet, Mitt Romney is the only choice on the ballot that could replace Barack Obama as President on the 6th of November, if the country and electoral college allows it. However, Mitt Romney has to do a lot of damage control in order to rebuild what little trust he has gained from the public. Because unlike, the youthful, swagged-out, for-the-people campaign Obama presented to us four years ago, Romney’s message and movement appears to be the exact opposite.

If Romney continues at the rate he is going, President Obama could neglect his campaign, sit back and deal with the country and he’d still win, according to Seth Meyer in his latest hysterical satircal video where he pokes fun at the two biggest players in the political arena.

#NewMusic: Prince EA “Smoking with the President”

September 10, 2012 Featured Artist, Music No Comments

Marijuana may be high on your list of priorities but if the President could do another campaign without having to hit this joint, he’d probably pass! In fact, the past is the closest you might ever get to witnessing President Obama keeping the peace pipe lit. Our country loves war so much but maybe weed is the chill pill we’ve been waiting for. But to be blunt, even if those legislative papers ever hit the desk of our commander and *chief*, his sleeves might get rolled up faster.

Hopefully, our friend Prince EA can be a bit more convincing with his latest recording. He takes an extra 8 minutes to break down why we should *leagu-a-lize it, leaving the song complete at 12 minutes. That’s a lot of convincing but for the amount of time it takes to receive the $500 ticket for possession after being pulled over, I guess we’re even Mr. President! Prince EA is continuing to create buzz across the internet, gaining support from organizations such as Drug Policy Alliance and sites like WeedMaps.
