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!
I had thought it would be a good idea to mail ballots to every eligible voter.
I have changed my mind:
people do not educate them selfs on candidates and issues
votes are usually cast for names they know or issues on tv the most
Trump‘s support show that even a bad person can be elected
If you look at bias in the media
Yahoo runs in the middle, people should read Yahoo news. so maybe people should be quizzed before they can vote. if they show they agree with lies in the media, they should not be able to vote
