IMO, people who don't bother to learn about who they are voting for just shouldn't vote. You can't completely rely on a party title to make such an important decision IMO the electoral college is also a piece of ****, but that's an entirely different issue.

What you have to understand is that in America we have the best government money can buy.
All campaigns for office are privately funded.To run for congress takes 7 figures, senate takes 8, and president takes 9. Over 100,000,000 $.
This makes all candidates glad-handers, spending half of their time out raising money, or more.
Often campaigns will have fund-raising luncheons, when working stiffs are AT WORK, and only millionaires can take time off to attend. Attendees then make 5000$ donations and get access to the candidates ear. Not like working stiffs couls cough up 5000$ to blow on a donation anyway.
But that access to the ear is the big prize. Nobody hands over that kind of money without a promise, or expectation, of a big return. Like the lessening of "problematic" regulations.
Why worry about toxins or safety when there is money to earn.
The republicans have always been the party of big business. They are a wholly owned subsidiary of corporate america, which is (surprise) solely interested in reaping profits, and using their politicians to smooth the way to more profits. In this world, the only green is money, and chewing up the environment in the pursuit is the cost of business.
People with money want power, people with power need money, and those with neither are nothing more than cogs in the machine.
Welcome to earth.
Enjoy your stay.

It seems like everybody is moving forward. As if there is some final goal they can achieve and get to. I don't get it though. When I look around, it seems like I'm already there, and there is nothing left to do.

I wish I could take just one hour of what I experience out in nature, wrap it in a box, put a bow on it, and start handing out to people

I completely agree with this. This past election day, I decided not to vote. The previous year I did. Why didn't I vote this year? I had no idea who was running, what their stances are or what their voting records were.

To make such an uninformed vote would be irresponsible IMO. And as such I abstained.
