Recently, President Obama discussed the idea of mandatory voting. What do you think? Should people be forced to get out and exercise the right to do something that people died for 50+ years ago? If so, how do you go about doing it? How do you convince a country full of people who would rather vote for American Idol than someone in Congress?
Do you throw them in jail?
Do you fine them?
Do you give them more than just a Tuesday to vote?
We'll also talk about the tragic story involving Anthony Stokes. He was given a second chance at life with a heart transplant, but things we very wrong after his surgery.
All of these things and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."

This broadcast will be EPIC!!!! I, along with my mentor/big brother Tony Stallings, of Soul of America Radio will be going all in on this one. During certain segments of last nights broadcast, as we revisited the Jubilee 50th Anniversary, commemorating Bloody Sunday and the reason for the march, which was the Civil Rights Voting Act, I made the statement, that "In the midst of the celebration, we must never lose sight of the significance". That statement was met with varying viewpoints. So with that being said, during and after last night"s broadcast, knowing the fact that our voting rights are literally on the chopping block, as we speak, I came up with the idea of this broadcast. With that being said, WE MUST NOT AND SHALL NOT, LET IT HAPPEN!!!! I IMPLORE EVERYONE TO BE APART OF THIS BROADCAST.. I MAY BE TAKEN OFF THE AIR, BUT I REFUSE TO NOT BE INFORMATIVE!!! WE WILL NOT CONTINUE TO PERISH FOR THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!!!!! #NUFFSAID
According to the US Census, "In 2012, the overall voting rate was 61.8%." "Overall, in the last five Presidential elections, the non-Hispanic White share of total votes cast dropped by about 9 percentage points. In comparison, between 1996 and 2012, the Hispanic share of total votes cast increased by about 4%, while the Black share increased by about 3%."
The Washington Post writes, "And while Obama did loose White voters by 20 points to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (the widest losing margin for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1984) he still won a clear popular vote victory - with a majority of his total vote nationwide coming from White voters." How about that folks. The majority of people who voted for President Obama were White! Let's go!
