Voting counts. Voting matters. You vote for a candidate, and you own that candidate’s policies and governance. You have enabled that candidate to enact the policies, laws, and governing style that they did. You own it. It’s yours.
Ours is a winner take all democracy. You win, and you govern.
What if you voted for a candidate that didn’t have a chance of winning? Then you voted for the winner. You either voted for the candidate that lost, or you helped the winner win. It is a binary choice, and it is winner take all.
