I hear this regularly in the UK, "I don't like the people so I'm not going to vote". That statement is the most inane, stupid, idiotic reason in the world. Many, many people actually died to give you the right to vote. The problem is not to feel total apathy that you give up on the voting process, it's WHO you get to vote for. THAT is the real reason and it can only be changed by sorting out the people that get put up for election.
The VOTE IS YOUR ONLY POWER, your choice, do not treat it so tritely. Cos if you didn't have it then you might as well give up on life because then you would have mayhem.

Who is getting rid of SS and charging $10 for gas? Now be specific. I see successfully renegotiated trade agreements, record low unemployment, new stock market record levels and North Korea firing no more missile tests.
Thats just the first three in the list I just googled for you. If you want to try it yourself browse to google.com and enter "plans to reduce social security benefits" without the quotes. I don't see any mention on the left planning this, but lots of GOP issues.
