Mandatory voting? So much for the rights of the individual, as well as personal accountability. Individual liberty, the foundation of our America, requires the exercise of free will. Democracy is based upon the personal responsibility of citizens to vote, and “get the government they deserve”. To achieve “a government for the people, by the people” the people must be moved by their desire to the selector of the people that make up their government. That inspiration of self-rule cannot be replaced by a command to vote from the government, otherwise the government is in charge of the people.

American exceptionalism is built from the bottom up – the empowered, engaged, free citizen. No where else on Earth is there such a gem.
