American voters in today’s society care about the issues of the United States and vote in hope to form a greater nation. Other United States citizens voluntarily do not participate in voting. Why people do not vote can vary from feeling intimidated by the polling process, to simply not caring about current issues. It is hard to justify citizens who do not vote by saying that it is for the better of America to have less of an opinion from the people.

I myself would hope that my vote counts. It really doesn’t if a small group of people can overrule the choice my fellow voters and I make. Lastly, I don’t think that the Electoral College is a very good idea because each person in this country matters. If they chose a president, even if by popular vote, it was their choice and they will be the ones who have to live with whatever promises that president chooses to make or break to them.

abortion) visions on how to obtain a more liveable society in America are not defined well. The second charge, similarly related to the first, charges that party promises and platforms held by candidates for elections are aimed mainly at getting elected more than governing and trying to make a difference. They do and say whatever it takes to get elected and stay elected, with little or no concern as to how the people feel or what they want. They tell people what they want to hear rather than what they really stand for (I'm not so sure if the majority of politicians really stand for anything moral or ethical, at all). These dishonest practices have damaged our "democracy"-or so they call it.
