In the 2010 mid-term election, 37% of eligible voters voted for their US Representatives, per the US Census. That is wretched and it let the Tea Party in. No wonder we get shafted. We aren't voting and we are just giving the elections to the GOP.I would like someone in the know to let me know why so many eligible poor voters don't vote. I know many have just given up on politics. It is said everywhere I have read that the more people who vote the better it is for Democrats. What is stopping the Democratic Leaders from hiring a virtual army of people who need jobs to register, ID and transport people to vote? I think they can come up with the money if they didn't waste it on TV ads, and other mechanisms which don't work for midterm elections. I find it curious they have never done this because it would virtually put the GOP out of business and the people back in business. Would some sophisticated, knowledgeable person please tell me explicitly why the Dems have not accomplished this?
