Actually, I was a Republican until Trump exposed the corruption of the GOP. Yes, I got to vote in a primary. I haven’t failed to vote since I reached voting age. My first vote was absentee from Vietnam in 1968.

Your response appears to be that of an angry person who chooses to sit on the sidelines and whine rather than actually work for change. We still have the right to vote, though Trump and the GOP would take that away. America has too many citizens who don’t bother to vote. If you are one of them, then you share responsibility for the sorry state of our democracy and you are the problem, not the solution.

By the way, you obviously didn’t bother to read my response. I didn’t pick Biden, I voted for Warren. Democracy cannot function without compromise. My candidate lost, so that required me to choose among the alternatives — one of which could have been not to vote in November. That would be the coward’s choice. We are not children who can take their ball home if the game doesn’t go their way. My advice to you is that politics and life are not games. They are deadly serious and you need to grow up and vote.

I’m a US Army veteran of the Vietnam War, have a wonderful wife and family, am a working software engineer, and a committed citizen.
