I agree with "A Political Critique." There are lots of problems with the government. There is so much corruption that will continue as long as the "good old boys" are running things. I believe this country needs a lot of changes, but nothing will happen if you don't vote. You don't have the right to complain if you're not going to do anything about it.
We the people have the power to make changes. I don't like the way things are going with the current president, so I will not vote to re-elect him. He is just one more of the "good old boys." We need someone new in office, someone who will bring a new perspective to the government.
