What things are supposed to be and what they are , are often two different things.America is supposed to be a free country, meaning we are free to make choices. To vote or not to vote is a choice. My experience is that there lots of people in the country who don't pay attention to politics and don't care about the process. While unfortunate if they don't chose to participate it's their loss.
Have those that don't vote fared markedly different from those that did ?
Has your participation brought you any gains or losses that are different to those that never voted ?
And if the boot was on the other foot , would a Republican president not be using the same tactic ?Having said that the only reason that we are talking about low turnout is that it's the last refuge of a president who got his clock cleaned in the mid terms. He's made it an issue to try to save face.
