What Would Happen If Everyone In America Who Could Vote, Did Vote?
April 07, 2018



Chronicle staff
Opinion


(NATIONAL) – Have you ever given the above question a thought? Seriously, how would things change in this country if everyone who was eligible to vote did vote?

Answer: there likely would be massive change and shifts in policies and priorities because the biggest block of voters in America isn’t Democrats or Republicans or the very young or very old.

The biggest block of voters are those who don't vote at all.

And that may scare the willies out of entrenched politicians more than anything else. Perhaps that’s one major reason why so many voter suppression laws have been introduced and passed in state after state.

Could it be that politicians, many of whom are kept in office year after year by large infusions of corporate and “dark” money are deathly afraid of a real democratic vote in a REAL robust democracy where everyone who can vote gets out there and does so?

Can you imagine in your wildest dreams a Sen. Mitch McConnell or his campaign donors or the National Rifle Association being thrilled about an America where all the non-voters actually turned out and voted by the millions?

Some of you might recognize a woman named Heather McGee. She’s a frequent guest on national TV news and public affairs programs such as  Meet the Press, Real Time with Bill Maher and Hardball with Chris Matthews.

Her Op-Ed pieces and other writings have been published in numerous major newspapers and news websites such as the The New York Times, The Nation, and The Hill.

Heather C. McGhee, an award winning activist who fights against poverty and for citizen empowerment in this country is President of Demos, a public policy organization whose goal is “working for an America where we all have an equal say in our democracy and an equal chance in our economy.”

She recently produced an interesting and provocative video centered around the idea of how might America’s policy choices, priorities and directions change if everyone who could vote did vote.

Watch. We think you’ll find it interesting. Some of you may find it...terrifying.
