The United States of America is on the wrong track and no one is taking action to fix it, says a broad majority of registered voters who did not vote last Tuesday.

Not only did they not vote, but one of them declared that she was unlikely to vote in 2016!
If these people had voted, they might have made a difference!

Andy is always right - though his satire is sometimes hard to distinguish from reality, it is so close to the bone!

Someone on Politics Plus (sorry, have forgotten who) said that Election Day should be a public holiday so that everyone would be able to vote - sounds like a very good idea, so long as people don't need public transport to get them to vote (drat - there's always something isn't there - perhaps people could volunteer to give people rides to the polling stations....? I can dream!).

Caught between an ironic snort and a wince. Not voting is just plain boneheaded!

If one doesn't vote, one's apathy/anger/frustration doesn't amount to a hill of beans.

If you don't vote you can't complain.

Andy is as funny as ever, but he shouldn't put the blame solely on people who didn't vote, the Democrats did little to convince people that voting would make a difference.

Don't vote? Don't complain! Unless you use your vote nothing will change! Hardly need a degree in rocket science to work that one out!!
