Exercising your right to vote
You oughtn’t exercise a right, merely because you have it. Nor should you engage in something for the sake of those that don’t. It would be like never blinking, because some people are blind.
Part of our freedom to vote is also our freedom not to. Pressuring people to vote in order to justify a democracy, is there anything more absurd?
I used to think differently, I thought that not voting was worse than voting for a party I disagreed with, but as I get older, I see more time where our government exhibits its own obsolescence, regardless of the party in charge.
I don’t have an answer, I’m not about to offer a solution when seemingly more intelligent people have spent decades putting this country together, even if these are the only results.
I merely say to do what you will and think for yourselves.
