There is no valid reason for you to complain about who is holding any political office, if you did not take the time to go and vote yourself. The people who you elect to office will be serving for you. Take the time and study the various candidates, and chose who you think should be in that office. Keep an open mind, and think for yourself. Do not believe all of the political ads that you hear on radio or television. Read up on how that person has voted in the past. These are public records. The results will help you make a better decision in who to vote for. Remember every vote counts and your vote is very important. Please take the time to vote on election day. You will feel better after you vote. This part of our freedom in the United States. We have the right to chose the candidates for office with your vote. Be a good citizen and go out to vote on election day.
