I read a study that said that the most deciding factor for Americans in which party they vote for is who their parents party is.

Do we seriously not think?

There's another study that says we no longer think because we don't matter. Because we can't really affect elections either way, we don't inform ourselves and hence pick mediocre (if that) politicians.

I'll try to find actual sources.
