Lantern's Andy Rooney

Did you ever wonder why:

1. It's getting harder to vote but easier to pay taxes?

2. More Americans vote for American Idol than their elected representatives?

3. You can vote from home by phone or text message for your favorite singer but not against the bum you want thrown out of office for sucking up to his major donors?

4. Election Day isn't a holiday, many states now require picture ID's and our justice department officials purge voter rolls? Will you find your name on the voter list if you show up?

5. It's seemingly more difficult and expensive to exercise our right to vote yet we can submit and sign our taxes electronically?

What's up with all that?
