What country are you in? If it's the US, that is exactly why we have a republic. Also, why does a stupid populous mean it's a bad idea to change things?

Based on the username I'm going to guess Dutch (Netherlands), I'm Dutch as well.

I don't vote left or right, I always go for the middle. Too left or right is never the best option in my opinion. The more extreme the less real.

I do agree on some level that voting changes very little. If not doing what you promised after being elected is more likely than doing it, voting doesn't really make a difference.
