Dialogue/Story

Hilary:  Which candidate are you going to vote for in the upcoming election?

Donald:  Neither one. I’m not voting.

Hilary:  What? You have to vote. Don’t you want to make your voice heard?

Donald:  Neither candidate represents my views. They each have their own political agendas that reflect the concerns of the elite, not people like you and me.

Hilary:  To me, voter apathy is the real problem. Things won’t change if we don’t vote.

Donald:  You’re not listening. Both candidates are in the pockets of special interest groups and only care about pork-barrel politics. They’re not really concerned about the everyday challenges that you and I face.

Hilary:  That’s not true. Look at the platforms of each candidate. They each stand for different things.

Donald:  That’s just lip service. They’ll say whatever matches public opinion to get elected.  No matter who gets into office, things will stay the same for regular folks like you and me.

Hilary:  So you’re really not going to vote?

Donald:  Nope.

Hilary:  What do you hope to achieve?

Donald:  Consider it a silent protest by the disaffected.
