Why does the US have one of the lowest voter turnouts?

  • “It’s not on my radar.”
  • “My vote makes no difference. It’s hopeless.”
  • “I don’t like either of the candidates.”
  • “It’s not convenient.”

Not voting is not a choice, it is a surrender.

July 1, 2020 (from a hand-written scrap of yellow paper)

I just realized something. I have been sexually abused or assaulted or whatever the PC term is today. My ex-husband assaulted me. He lied to me for better than nine years about who he was, why he married me, and the hurtful behavior he engaged in throughout our time together. He also exposed me to HIV through his extra-marital partners, and he actually did physically assault me. I just can’t remember it. Either I was too drunk, or he drugged me, but the physical signs of rape were there.
