It's because you are LAZY. That's it. That's the reason.
"Nooooo yuo don't get it... voting has a tiny effect...... why even bother......"
right! and voting also requires a tiny effort!
"Nooooo...... I live in a (red/blue) state....... my vote doesn't matter.... foregone conclusion...."
WRONG. The only thing that makes a red/blue state a red/blue state is the people that vote in the elections. That means YOU (or, more accurately, NOT YOU). During the 2020 election, two deep red states (Arizona and Georgia) switched from Red to Blue. Also, in our lifetimes, many traditionally red states have begun drifting blue in matters of state politics. Kansas, a deep red state, for instance, has a Democrat governor and congresspeople.
"they'll just change the vote........... or cheat....... anything to keep the powers that be in office............ forever........"
source: trust me bro
Trump had every opportunity to prove that there was voter fraud. I'll admit, folks, for a bit I thought there was some sus shit going on! I kept hearing about bags of votes being found on the internet! but for months and months NOTHING. Nada. Zilch. This was after millions of dollars requesting recounts in swing states, and Trump swinging his presidential peepee as hard as he could (prolly harder than he should've )
folks, there isn't some big conspiracy. if it was real, Trump woulda found it. but he didn't. He keeps claiming he did, but fellas, he didn't, lol.
bro they stole the election. trust me bro.
okay, how and where's the proof
dude... they just did, okay???
"heh... democracy doesn't even work..."
You are an actual r-slur if you think this. Not like the fetch and funny r-slurs that everybody gets along with, I am talking boomerpilled grannymaxxers who fall for sexy Indian dudes telling them their computer is full of viruses.
ok, ok, ill take you seriously for a second. what system would work better than democracy? hmmmb... i know.... authoritarianism. if we were just controlled by badass dictators, everything would be better... oh wait oh shit oh frick, you're telling me that the unelected dictator is MORE CORRUPT than an elected official??? well darnnnn we better vote him out - oh wait you can't
Conclusion: you are lazy and probably fat
I know I am going to get people in the comments being like "didn't read; still not voting " yeah I know bub, did you think I wrote this thinking I would actually change your mind? I just wrote this for @Impassionata's little essay contest. You guys are like a fat positivity forum and I'm like the guy that is trying, futily, to convince you to hit the gym instead of bitching about how you're treated.
I am hereby proposing the "Touch Ballot" award, requiring a person to submit proof that they voted in an election. Yes this would exclude non-US people but I don't care seethe harder democracy haters
