Throughout my high school career as a wannabe playboy, I have been on the sidelines amongst the nerds due to reality keeping people like me in check.

Countless voters believe the explanation behind the decline in citizen participation is not due to a particular reason but incalculable judgements made by observing political representatives. For starters, parties lack engagement with the community and general public, leaving the voice and opinions of their citizens unheard (Carothers, 2006, p.4, quoted in Garner et al. 2017, p. 223).
