I know some here will probably jump on me for this opinion BUT, I long ago lost the pride, and the feeling that the government was actually hearing MY voice when I pulled that lever to cast my vote.
I am of the opinion that NO... your vote no longer counts as it should. I still vote. The failing will not be on my end for as long as I can help it. I vote every single chance I get.
Whether my ASSumption is right or not, this is the way I feel. I see too many more people that feel the exact same way. So IMO something IS wrong one way or the other. If a large portion of people get the same feeling, then something needs to change. The government should work a little harder to restore the people's lost faith in the system instead of ignoring it.
