I've personally made it a point to stop registering to vote and not vote at all just because of how pointless I feel the whole thing has become
That's fine. I support your right to do that. But please don't complain that politicians don't care about you or your problems. You have given them no reason to care. Politicians care about 70 year old and their problems because they show up at the polls at twice the rate of 35 year olds.
Related to that, I think that election day should be a national holiday and no for-profit business should be allowed to be open. That would give everyone the opportunity to vote. Having elections on a regular work day is a huge disincentive for hourly workers to vote. It literally costs them money, like illegal poll taxes of the 19th century.
To balance out the work calender, they can get rid of MLK day. I have no doubt that Dr. King would approve.
