I feel like a lot of people don’t vote because they feel like they they need to like everything the politician they vote for wants which is so wild to me. If you want to agree with everything a politician wants then get off your ass and become a politician ffs. It doesn’t help that people often act like you should regret your vote if a poltician does one thing you don’t like. I think it comes from romanticizing past political figures as if they did nothing wrong. Similar to the “good old day’s” mentality.
