It seems that some people no longer vote because doing so, in the past, did not seem to matter. Regardless of the political party in office, the outcome was unsatisfactorily, the same.
Those voted into office seem to have set themselves up, not in service to the people, but as a “ruling class;” above the people; giving favor to special interests and deeming favor upon the people only when they deemed the people worthy.
Some seem not to vote because they have no interest in voting, or working for that matter. They eat. They sleep. They poop. They survive and thrive from the work of others regardless of the ruling class in office and what others do not supply them they steal or scheme to get from the others.
If this is be true, what are possible ways for correcting it? Should a law be enacted requiring all citizens to vote with a penalty for not voting?
Six months after the election, Americans should know what they have. Hold your nose and vote for the lesser of the worse doesn’t seem like a good beginning. That view has to change.
