There is a long history of people stopping other people from voting, it continues on this site wither outright or defacto with the "NO WAR" crap it is all the same, your vote doesn't matter leave the important business of running things to others better suited to it. At one time they simply called themselves Kings, now they are "job creators" same difference you should leave running things to them.

''America's Right-wing Fascism, Millennials and Why Good People Must Do Something''

by Michael T Bucci:

From which ..''America is to be judged by its citizens, not its politicians. But if Americans lose contact with one another; substitute real, tangible realities with virtual ones projected on internet and television screens; refuse to engage in the democratic process and choose passivity over involvement, nihilism over hope, fatalism over self-determination; remain complacent about if not ignorant of US actions and wars in the world; adopt definitions of themselves that are crafted by self-serving special interests, profiteers or merchants of war and hate running now for president from both political parties, they lose all concepts of who they are, what they stand for, and what really constitutes American values.

''As it stands, Americans are on the cusp of recognizing that they are losing their historic identity, or the one they embraced before 9/11.

''In the collective American consciousness questing for material objects, success, fame, wealth, property and stock equities, together with a megalomaniacal drive for Empire to dominate a world now splitting itself into East and West, there remains no public figure speaking for “everyone”; for unity through diversity; for peace; for the poor, homeless, disabled and elderly; for children and young people who will inherit a financially bankrupt nation that cheerleads its populist billionaires who take all, avoid taxes, give little back, blame the scapegoat, and ignore the plight of others, particularly the plight of young generations who will inherit it all as they advance into tomorrow’s leadership positions. Who speaks for them?''

The latter was a very straight forward and thoughtful link. The synopsis... the time for us to get involved, if we are to have a chance of changing our destiny, and becoming a more moral people is now. If we care about our progeny's well being, doing nothing is not an option.
