I believe that everyone should go for what their hearts tell them to go for. Anyone with a dream isn't on the dope of tv it brings everyone together. GO AMERICAN IDOL!

More young Americans know the names of people on American Idol but do not know who are their government representatives. Forget this idol junk and write to your Senators and Congress people. Get off the dope of TELEVISION!
