When I saw that less than 37 percent of Americans voted in this midterm election, I couldn’t help but think of the quote from E.A. Bucchianeri’s “Brushstrokes of a Gadfly”: “They say if you don’t vote, you get the government you deserve.”
It seems that the people who didn’t vote in this election are the people the Democratic Party fights for, so it will be interesting to see how they fare with the Republican Party in control of the Senate and House of Representatives.
