Have you registered to vote? If you have, why did you bother? What does our vote mean in politics?
Many people don't realize that you do have a swing. While you may not feel your vote matters in some of the larger elections, presidential being the most popular, registering to vote also gives you the ability to sign petitions.
Just today I stopped on the side of the rode to sign a petition to recall the governor of Michigan who is hitting our public education system with some serious cuts.
If I would not have registered to vote (I do it when I renew my vehicle tags every year) I would have not been able to sign that petition. Many petitions comes down to a few hundred - thousand signatures.
Even if you have no desire to keep up with politicians or to vote for them, you should still consider registering. You never know when an issue may come up that effects you directly!
Since both parties are basically the same, there is no point in voting. Not voting is a form of protest that makes politicians uncomfortable.
What does a penny mean in the dollar? By itself--not much but gathered together, they bring power as does voting.

Give me a break! Like a bunch of whiney kids who didn't get their way! If they hate it here so badly, and hate the POTUS so much, leave the country!

then why do we keep electing the same politicians over and over? Why not vote for a neighbor or local leader. Do we just like to complain? So many complaints about big government and big business yet I see no one starting a company and refusing a pay check so that their employees can be paid more....

Are you registered to vote? Do you vote in primaries, run-offs and Election Day?
