Letter: Why even vote?

ENID, Okla. — I would like to know why we even vote anymore. Someone, please explain to me so I can understand it.

Why waste money on ballots and elections to pass laws and then have someone who doesn’t like the law file a suit and an activist judge or the Supreme Court declares it unconstitutional – they never give any reason as to why.

I refer to the law on Sharia law and now the voter ID law, plus other laws have been thrown out, and they were passed with a large majority.

It would be great if they would follow the Constitution as they have sworn to do when they should. Instead, they only follow it when they agree with it; if they disagree with it, it is thrown out.

Again, I ask a simple question: Why waste money to hold elections and vote when we know it will be overruled? Please tell me!
