"Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber."
Only 6 out of 10 Americans over age 18 voted in the last 2 national elections. That would be legal, registered-to-vote Americans to be clear. We don't count illegal aliens, regardless from whence they came, as American voters here at D3.
Sometimes we get what we want when we vote and sometimes we get what is less scary than the alternative when we vote. But as a democracy, whom our forefathers and mothers died to create for us, we get to choose who leads us. Ain't it great?
For those that voted, what do you hope to achieve, especially if you voted for a candidate at the local, state or national level that was expected to lose?
And for those that didn't vote, what kept you from casting your ballot?
