*This is part of my ongoing series of interviews with average voters and non-voters:
I met Brenda, a 50-something former Democrat at last week's Juneteenth festival in San Francisco. Corruption is clearly turning people who were once politically active into non-voters. Because of Brenda's belief that Jesus Christ will return and solve all of our problems, there is nothing activists or politicans can do to convince her to vote again. I met several Republicans on my road trip who said they don't care about the state of the environment, education, healthcare, etc... because they too believe Jesus Christ will soon return. The difference is, they tend to vote.
