We do have a huge problem with getting citizens to vote and that does need to be addressed in the future with at minimum a cost/benefit process. When we all vote there is no room for the worst of our natures to prevail in our politics. When less that 30% of our population decides the futures of the rest of us 70% it is unreal and unacceptable. So we are now left with a liberal progressive majority that is dependent upon a new government that believes in austerity for the non wealthy and abundance for the wealthy. For the at least next 2 years we can do little to stop this reality except to protest. We can make our will felt against every decision that further strikes the working middle class into hardship.
The clamor we must evoke is not just for we politically active but for those who sat out the last election thinking that nothing bad could come of it. Well, doing nothing has proven to be a bad choice and the only way to rectify that is to turn from ambivalence and become proactive. We, all of us majority, need to rally wherever we are to stop the democracy crushing republican party from further annihilating the will of the people. The fake news and outright lies of the republican party notwithstanding, we must awaken from the hate and reclaim our liberal progressive roots.
