Thanks

What's point of being politically invovled. The U.S. voting system is fake. The people who win the elections are the people who the big business men of America want to win. The fact of the matter is the voting system is one person doesn't count as one vote in the U.S. So to get back to the original question to me it doesn't matter if they are politically involved or not. I hope this thread is about poilitics and not something else.
