in thread For whom would you vote, if you were an American?

Also, I believe many people do not vote because voting is too time-consuming/they are too busy, they are simply indifferent, or the candidates they do 'like' have a microscopic chance in the universe of ever being elected under the current electoral system (true fact). In all of these cases, the voter may not explicitly like or dislike the candidates.

tweaked So what is wrong with this post and the one I wrote before enough for it to be downvoted and me lose XP? I countered a fallacious argument. How is downvoting supposed to encourage 'the community' when an opinion is expressed?
