Response to CrispyQ (Reply #7)

19. I will never understand people who don't vote.

Those who are too ill, incapable of driving or getting to the polls, or no longer mentally able are excused, but everyone else is not. We need to make at least the first Tuesday in November for federal and state elections a national holiday so lower paid workers do not have to take time off to vote. Then we need an incentive for people to voteósomething like you canít renew your driverís license if you do not vote in at least one of the last three elections. This lack of participation is ridiculous in a country that claims to be a democracy where the people have the power through their votes.
