The United States has estimated population of 330 million in 2021. Of the is population, approximately 75% are eligible to vote (age 19+), more if you count the 18-year-olds. This translates to about 247 million eligible voters.
In the 2020 presidential election, 158 million voted, 64% of the eligible voters by age. Approximately 89 million eligible voters, did not vote.
You can now understand, this is not a nation where the majority rules. IT IS A NATION WHERE THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTERS RULE (MAKE THE DECISIONS FOR THE REST OF US). Source: https://www.fec.gov/resources/cms-content/documents/2020presgeresults.pd
So, those ineligible to vote (by age) and those who choose not the vote, by default, accept the rule and decisions of the majority of the voters (172 million citizens did not vote in 2020)!

Your vote counts. VOTE! If you didn’t you have no complaints on how the country is run!
Here’s a thought. If those you elected to office (city, county, state, federal) did not do anything to improve your community, county, state or the nation, or harmed the middle class, maybe you should consider voting for another candidate!
