    First of all, Hugh, it's "affects," not "effects."

    Now as to giving up on voting because of gerrymandering or Citizens United: baloney!  If everyone who was eligible to vote actually voted, Democrats might have held the House in 2010 and Obama's presidency might not have deteriorated into the Executive Branch vs. the "Do-Nothingest" Right-Wing Congress in memory.

    No matter how much you may think our system doesn't work anymore, the best way to effect any kind of change still begins with your vote!  And if you really believe your ideas are better than the other side's, get out and hustle up the vote!  If you give up your right to vote, you have given up your right to complain.
