Your Take/My Take Jean-Marc - from the village Trets, So. France

"Thom, I am Jean-Marc from France, and there are many things I do not understand about US politics. Among them, I heard and read numerous times that the poor do not vote in your country. If that is true, could you please explain why?? I really do not get this. Another thing I don't get is why is it that you guys vote on tuesdays and not on week-ends? Don't you want a maximum of people voting? I could go on and on with things I find bizarre in your politics, like why is 51 out of 100 not considered a majority in the senate, etc...congratulations for your show!"
