Seriously Mat, just a few weeks ago 7 states had yet to vote in the primarys yet the Republican candidate was already chosen. While Romney was looking for a running mate, the people living in Texas, California (two of the most populous I believe?) and 5 other states had absolutley no voice in the process and the primary voting cycle was yet again meaningless for them.
You must see how this is helping to create an alienated and cynical electorate (assuming they are actually capable of critical thinking) that is becoming more disenfranchised with every election cycle. Voting was and is a hard won and cherished right - but when the system is inherently flawed - it just becomes more of a futile attempt to give the impression we have freedom of choice and pretend we have a democracy, when we don't.
The American Dream ? Its called that because you have to be asleep to believe it..
