    When the muslim woman said the US wasn’t a true democracy I was shook, like are you living under a rock, when you actually need examples of bad democracies *dictatorships* have a little sight of all countries bellow the US. I firmly believe calling the US non democratic is truly ignorant given the actual or past situation of other countries. That my problem with a lot of people in the US, I’ve only been to Miami but from what I’ve seen they can barely locate themselves on the map. Look up countries like Venezuela, Argentina since Perón, Cuba, Chile from 1973, THOSE are bad democracies.

    In 2018, FL voters voted on over a dozen legislation. Amendment 4 was passed and felons got the right to vote again.

    Did that guy actually just say he didn't vote independent because his family and friends told him it would be a wasted vote? What kind of backwards thinking is that? So not only is he giving in to peer pressure and then saying "it's not real democracy" but also, where he could have 'wasted his vote' by voting for the independent that he actually liked (y'know, as if you live in a democracy...), instead he just wastes his vote by not voting AT ALL.

    2 party systems in my opinion and research are the best. Better than a one party system, for obvious reasons. Better than a multi party system for reasons being: they’re more expensive to run, views are less moderate since the parties have to listen to a bigger crowd, it can provide too MANY choices, it can form coalition government (which tends to be more unstable), and although I believe minorities should have a say, that is to a fault. The majority should have the bigger say in most cases, that’s why we have a democratic republic in the first place, so the government can be ruled by the people in the first place. With a multiparty system, the country can be too divided and overpower majority to an extreme fault.

    The 2016 election is a whole different animal, but I just do NOT understand why you WOULDN’T vote. This is the one middle ground where I legitimately don’t understand the side that I disagree with. All of the non-voters make points I can get behind, but none of the problems they’re talking about can be fixed by not voting.

    A 2 party system is the only way elections can work. If there were more than 2 different parties it would be a complete and total mess. At the end of the day, 50% of the people will be happy with the outcome and 50% won't. No matter how many parties are added, not everyone will be happy in the end.

    12:30 when the Muslim women said that when you keep doing the same thing that you where doing nothing will change well she was referring to if you vote like you did before, the same thing will recur, but that actually must be used against non-voting for if you ignore voting and you keep non-voting them you will be the one that will not impact a certain change

    Like China, Brazil, Nigeria and India, the United States is too big for a nation. Yes, it has the states in place with small tweaks on certain rights and laws, but it needs to be more than that. The country simply has too many people, and generally just too big to be under one government. The chance of having more than half unsatisfied is too high. Having is chopped up more, weather it would be 50 new countries or 5, who knows? I'm not saying the United States shouldn't be one country, but I think there should be more parties that have more power in the States themselves and the various counties. The chance of satisfaction is simply higher.

    6:00 good choice. Though the United States has major problems, and you need to stay to fix and make it better. Brazil also have major problems, that are more often worse than in the US. Brazil is going to be fixed by the Brazilians eventually, at least we can hope so, and the United States can be fixed by the Americans.

    Its time for some new diverse parties... The system is old... People now think in multiple ways.... I think a two party system is as bad as a one party system.... But in the end no matter how miniscule our democratic power is to change politics.... It still counts... Unfortunately oligarchal-esque systems like the electoral college are being used to limit our power to slim to none. If I would give a percentage to our current "power" it will be no higher than 20%.

    "Change starts with the bottom"
    That's an illusion, with every revolution, change is headed by small factions who seek to associate themselves with the masses, but are not in fact 'the bottom'. They are a small group of pioneering individuals who penetrate the weaknesses of the current system to make use of the power up for grabs. The collective masses, i.e the bottom, do not start the change, but in the general confusion become become part of it. However, in democratic societies power IS distributed amongst the masses, but can only come into effect once it is directed by the government.

    Also they shouldn’t complain about the two candidates. Clinton was an infinitely more qualified candidate then Trump. Also, since they decided that they wouldn’t voice their opinions in the polls, they have no right to complain about those candidates.

    I'm sick of these conspiracy theories about how the US government chooses its own leaders and rigs all the elections in their favor. That may be true in parts of the world, and the US isn't perfect at keeping elections fair. But at the end of the day, the "rigging" is never anywhere near as great as people think it is. Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders because she outperformed him in the majority of the primaries. If you wanted Bernie Sanders to win, you should have voted. Election officials aren't throwing away your votes. There's no conspiracy. Get out and vote.

    America is not a direct democracy by design, we're a constitutional republic, both the oldest one today and the longest lasting one since the dissolution of the Roman Republic. I do agree that the two party system is largely broken as is, but parliamentary style democracies have their own issues that can be just as destructive to the governments functionality, governments persisting without an elected leader because of a failure to form a functioning coalition is one of many examples. When it comes to democracies, you have to pick your poison, because the alternatives, socialism/communism or anarchy, have proven to be exponentially worse.

    It is rather disappointing these young people have lost any sense of history. (More than what a particular president makes up on social media !!!). Look back to the struggles and the lives lost in order for each of us to have the right to walk into a ballot booth to vote your conscience.
    Look back at Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in post WW I Germany (1920’s to 1940’s) and see how a group about the same size as the number of participants in your video debate members rose to to an insane mob of killers. Individuals can and do change the world!
    I do sincerely hope the “non-voters” band together and vote in 2020 for truth and fundamental human rights. -ALLEN

    "I believe my vote matters because I'm a woman and we didn't have that right"
    The question wasn't whether you deserve the ability to vote, the answer is yes. The question is whether your vote makes an actual difference.
    I intend on voting (beyond the fact that it's a legal requirement to vote here), because why the heck not? You don't need to be very political. All you need to do is go to the poll and cast a ticket. It's very easy, physically. If you don't care, just vote and forget about it until the next elections. It's not dishonest if you admit it.
    However, voting here in Australia matters far more than the United States. We don't have an electoral college, and unlike the United States, where if I was a voter from Texas, my vote would go to the Republican party regardless of whether I vote democratic, Republican, or don't vote. Australia's voting system is much better (and if you really insist on not voting, which... Why not? How could it possibly hurt? You can always cast an empty ticket here).
    Either way, if you want to cause change in your environment through non governmental means, that's fine, but voting won't prevent you from doing that.

    All i know is that i can influence the way my local criminal justice system works through my vote, and that should be reason enough to go the booth. we can choose our candidates through interacting with them and other politicians, we can tell them what policies are important to us, and we can choose a candidate in the election. From local to State to federal these elections are extremely important. a handful of votes can change a district which can change the state (red/blue). You are not going to convince me that that’s not important. I think every single one of those people who are liberal would prefer Hillary instead of trump whether or not you also prefer hillary its true that she probably more correctly aligns with their beliefs and it’s just ridiculous to me that they don’t realize how important it is to push for that even if it is the lesser of two evils

You have all these people who want the same thing, and then what? If none of them vote, nothing will change and none of those ideas get into the government.
