    First you say you are not voting and then, you criticize the election process because not enough people vote! If you are not going to vote, perhaps you shouldn't criticize those of us who do?

    It is not a criticism that not enough people vote. It's a jab an the illusion of representation. It wouldn't matter if voter participation was 95%. No one is representing you. Until "none of the above" is an option, it's all nonsense.

    Try this. Pick your most evil corporation. One of the really nasty ones. Start searching on line for the customer service number and time how long it takes you to find it. Call it and see how they treat you. Now, do the same thing with one of your elected "representatives" and compare the results and let me know how it goes.

    You want to vote... go ahead. But I'm not going to pretend that you're accomplishing anything but anxiety management. You're voting for the very same reason that you're commenting on this article. Logically, there is very little chance of it changing anything, but it does sooth those lingering subconscious impressions that the system is broken.

    I want to apologize. My first response was unnecessarily hostile in response to what I perceived as hostility. I assumed too much. Instead, maybe you can tell me what you contribute, in time or money, above and beyond your vote, to improve our political situation.

    Maybe also you can tell me whether you are voting to impose your will on others, or voting to protect yourself from the impositions of others.
