Those who choose to not vote, have their reasons. Most probably live in safe states, and just can't be bothered, because, correctly they realize it won't matter
That's because the US two-party political system functions as a monopoly instead of a representative democracy

"When you carve up the electorate into arbitrary subunits—states for presidential and Senate elections, districts in House elections–and hold ‘winner-take-all’ elections within each, you create the potential and likelihood for the vote to be skewed—for electoral outcomes that defy majority preference, or otherwise skew from an accurate reflection of popular will."

Adopting Proportional Representation Would Unskew U.S. Elections

George H.W. Bush, was a fighter pilot in wwii. Did you vote for him?
Because his family was trading with the Nazis even after the US entered the war. In general, rich parasites like Bush and Trump don't fight wars; they get richer from wars.

Ah, so all your talk of representation is just about partisan advantage? GOT IT.

So, even though he was not a "coward" you still did not support him politically.


That was my point. THe list from that woman is garbage.

Why is every mostly Muslim country either a humanitarian, military or economic disaster?

Thanks
Because corrupt western capitalists want their oil

You're welcome.

30 years after our ‘endless wars’ in the Middle East began, still no end in sight

"Americans — including my father — fought the Nazis in North Africa in World War II, but the first combat operation in the Middle East proper did not come until July 18, 1958, when President Dwight Eisenhower sent Marines ashore in Beirut, Lebanon.

"Operation Blue Bat was prompted by a coup, not in Lebanon but in Iraq.

"On July 17, 1958, the Iraqi army overthrew the most pro-Western government in the Middle East, the Hashemite monarchy that then ruled both Iraq and Jordan.

"King Faisal II and his family were brutally murdered."

at least the lunacy has been put into the right forum. What a bunch of silly left wing nonsense.

What makes you equate representative democracy with partisan advantage?

Representative democracy - Wikipedia

"Representative democracy is a form of democracy in which people vote for representatives who then vote on policy initiatives as opposed to a direct democracy, a form of democracy in which people vote on policy initiatives directly.[10]."

A group of people that can watch a man say, "nazis are bad people" and convince the world that he said, that "nazis are very fine people",
There's never been a LIAR like Trump....
Subscribe to read | Financial Times

If your lib media had reported what he said and stated in their opinion that he was lying, that would have been....barely acceptable and quickly forgotten.


Instead they chose to LIE to the American people and the world about what he said.

AND, they made it stick, despite the obvious proof that they lied.


THAT is lying like NOTHING I have ever seen. YOU people are the ones who lie like no one else.

I did not say that. You lied. For someone who is so upset when other people lie, you seem to have no problem doing it yourself.
