1. American democracy: vote if you want, it doesn't really matter, because TPTB will decide for you
To look on the bright side, it saves all the trouble and bother of actually going out to vote.

But seriously--Oregon has done voting by mail for ages now, and it's great for working people and everybody else. It's certainly more convenient than standing in line for hours, if you're in a poor/Democratic district that hasn't been supplied with enough "voting" machines. Why on earth hasn't it been more widely adopted?
