I respect your opinion, however I disagree.
If I feel no one represents me or my beliefs and desires for the country I love and live in and its people, then I will not vote for them. I vote for ballot measures. The argument that people who don't vote don't have the right to complain is one I have never agreed with personally. If I didn't vote because I washed my hands of the entire system because the options offered to me were not people I could lend my energy and support to on principle, then I am not responsible for the mess created by those who did vote. It would make more sense in my mind to suggest that those who did vote have no rationale to complain. I wouldn't ever argue that however, because I believe everyone always has the right to an opinion and to express it.
Informed, principled abstention is not the same as apathy.
