    Approximately 1/327 Million per American citizen.

    Very Little especially when we keep voting to same people back into office year after year and we see they have done nothing in the past to do the peoples will.

    We are being lead like a bunch of sheep to the slaughter especially when WE ALL COMPLAIN about the government but keep putting the same people in instead of voting the old ones out who are doing nothing and putting in new younger blood with new ideas.

    WE SHOULD VOTE AND PASS for there to be a 2 term limit on ALL GOVERNMENT JOBS WHICH IS ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE SUCH AS CONGRESS, ETC. There also should be a term limit for ALL FEDERAL AND STATE JUDGES.... NOT LIFE TIME JOBS so WE THE PEOPLE can decide who WE THINK IS BEST FOR THE JOB and not some politition somewhere getting paid under the table by them. 2 TERM LIMITS FOR ALL should be a law.

    None at all. They give you a fake vote to play with as I would give a baby a toy and countermand the vast majority of American citizens when they hand Hillary Clinton the popular vote by a landslide, with a clear margin of millions. And, instead of asking yourselves the obvious question of Who is really RULING you, you are three years on enthusiastically campaigning for the next Fake Election in 2020. 2016 should have awakened millions of you but taught you absolutely nothing. You are a lowly species on a lowly backwater planet, easily fooled by bread and circuses. You don't collectively possess even the four year attention span allotted. You are gullible and biddable, lacking the mental acumen necessary for critical thinking, and believe that you are free solely because you are told that you are free. It is manifestly untrue and flies in the face of logic. You are unenlightened and worthy of nothing better.

    Source(s): We came to your planet to observe you.

    Nearly none. But you have a vote. And that makes you equal to everyone else come election day. Don't complain about not having a good candidate in November if you didn't support your favorite candidate during the Primary season and vote during the Primary elections.

    Participate and write letters when needed.

    Avoid Extremists. They deny Rights to fellow citizens. Say goodbye to the extreme Socialists They just want your power so they can Dominate you.

      And all of your votes together amount to nothing. If you all agreed on one candidate who received one hundred per cent of your votes, another could be installed.

    if they take their civic responsibility seriously and vote, participate in civic action, and contact their representatives, then quite a bit, if they sit at home and cry and don't do any of this, then none

      Quite untrue. Those are the very games that distract and fool you.

    Very little. The fact is: we became a fascist

    tyranny in 1913, with the creation of the Federal Reserve.

    Our presidents and Congress answer to it. Kennedy tried to stand up

    to them, so they assassinated him. They make Hitler look like an angel.

      You are not crazy. You are absolutely correct. Andrew Jackson was so proud that he 'killed the bank' and the Fed put him on the 20 for spite.
