You are absolutely right. The system does work exactly how they want it to. It works pretty much the same here, too. I am so sorry for what happened with you and your sister. It’s wrong and it sucks. You have a powerful story to tell and I hope people listen. Because we never change what we can’t even see to begin with.

And you’re right — some of those people cannot vote due to felonies. Some of those people didn’t vote, as another reader pointed out. But still — if you count up all the adults in America, it is dead wrong to say half of America voted for Trump. They didn’t.

Thanks so much for leaving this comment. I hope a lot of people read it and say wtf? Because we need people to open their eyes.
