How Can Anyone Still See the Point of Voting?

Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have solved any of America's problems. It's just more benefits for the wealthy, more wars, dysfunctional cities, and massive bureaucracy. Yet millions of Americans are going to go out in November 2016, and decide which used car salesmen is better than the rest. This country could actually become better once we realize that it is not any particular politician or administration, but rather the political and economic system itself that is responsible for America's problems.
Thanks from Pilgrim

I can. There are many democrats who are not getting any air time on the corporate controlled media stations who ARE working for the betterment of blacks, the middle class and the poor. Don't give up. Vote democrat.

Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago: All predominantly-Black, all run by liberals, and all fucked up places to live. I've lost faith in liberalism. It hasn't done anything for the Black underclass, and I would be a fool to continue to Democrat. I don't vote period.
Thanks from kbear and Sabcat

Keep your voting focus local, that is where we can find allies to fix our problems. Those in DC are disconnected from what really matters on our own streets. They can be a good ally at some times, not always of course, but sometimes. The most important elected officials are those nearby.

Rinos are liberal republicans.

We need to elect conservatives, I don't care if the Conservative has a D or R or I after their name.

There lies your problem. The governors in the states help to fund the cities now. Maryland and Michigan are republicans and detroit was taken over when a republican mayor declared the city bankrupt. Chicago has neoliberals like Obama who help the rich get richer.

Know your terms. Know your politics and understand what the teabagging governors are doing to city funding.

Conservatives are racist and their ideology is based on uncontrolled capitalism and White supremacy. I'd be even more of a fool if I voted Republican.

Maryland has been controlled by Democrats until recently. Baltimore (where I live) has been run by Democrats for decades and they've run this city to the ground. The sooner Americans read up on Anarchism, the better.

Maybe he declared the city bankrupt because it was bankrupt.
