Before we get deep down into the gritty nitty meat and bones of this article, I’d like to get a few things out of the way:
I live in the United States. I was born here and I will more than likely die here. Since I turned eighteen years-old (legal voting age in the US) I’ve been registered in two political parties. I’ve been a registered Democrat and I registered for Ross Perot’s United We Stand America when it was active. However, I’ve spent most of my adult life registered as an independent voter, as I am today.
Until the last election, I hadn’t voted for anyone or anything since 1999. Once I saw how badly rigged our system is during Bush vs. Gore, I gave up. I mean, after all, if my vote gets negated because the Supreme Court appoints the president, then what’s the point?
