Whoa, first off, Abby is my best friend and I don't let anyone talk to her like that! BELIEVE ME she is a Rush fan, and a BIG one! You ask her any question about Rush and she'll know the answer right away.
So she wasn't in your situation, does that automatically exclude her from being a Rush fan? NO. Sir, you need to pull your head out of your ass and realize that ANY Rush fan would do that, but they did't have that chance.
I've sat with her and cried over how perfect their music is- just like i'm sure you all have as well, or else why would we be here. But listen. She's 15!!! Guys, give her a chance! My goodness! She only wants to meet her heroes, and the only way to do that, unfortunately, is to ask for votes! She's not shoving it down your throat, but she's also not sitting on her grumpy old ass like all of you sticking your nose in the air because you're 'older' and 'better' and more of a 'genuine fan' than her.
Guys please, don't blame her because she's taking action in a once in a lifetime opportunity, and you're not.
Abby, I love you and I really hope you do win this because you're the nicest and coolest girl i've ever met, and I know Rush would be proud to meet you
