      As an American ex-pat I can 100% relate to this. I know now that it was foolish, but for many of my younger years I never voted because as far as I was concerned it was a bunch of old guys who couldn’t relate to me or any issues I cared about.

      I feel that Biden is an extreme example of this. He's just not mentally fit for the job. But Trump is worse. It's a painful situation.
