Stephen - nobody's forcing you to vote.

You seem to somehow be wildly confusing automatic voter registration with compulsory voting.

The left wing already wins most elections without it

Huh? Perhaps state elections in predominantly "blue" states, but in "red" states, and on a national level, this is obviously not the case. If you said "the left wing already wins most elections in urban areas," you'd be closer to the truth.

The true vote is those who want to vote voting.

Agreed. That's why it should be easier for those who want to vote to be able to, with such accommodations as holding national elections on weekends, not on Tuesdays ( which was to make it easier for farmers to vote hundreds of years ago) or making election day a federal holiday.
