Why should I vote?

There are so many votes...my vote won't make a difference.

The most obvious response is: "Well, if everyone thinks like that...then no one would vote!"

But that's reality. The reality is that it'll make too small of a difference to waste time and vote.
tynamite's avatar The role of a politician from their perspective, is to do anything they can to stay in power. To them, it's the best job in the world.

Have you ever wondered why all the good areas in your city have better binmen, youth facilities, and better access to council housing; while you in your bad area, are not given those things? Have you ever wondered why your council prioritises people from the good districts of your city, and not people (or you) from the bad district?

It's because they vote, and you don't.
Most people who vote are 50 , age wise. And class wise, most people who vote are middle class.
That is why politicians represent them, and not you.

Politicians please those people by giving them perks, because they know that those are the people who will vote for them again. There is no point in politicians in giving benefits to the youth, poor, or working class, as those are not the people who vote.

The sad fact of life, is that young people don't vote. If more young people voted, they wouldn't have to protest about the education system, and youth clubs wouldn't shut down.

Young and poor people, are not intelligent enough to know the importance of voting, as they do not understand how not voting, depreives them of the entitlement of things.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
