and yes warning it’s about politics which may be sensitive since i know for some reason people shy away and don’t like politics but honestly you need to get used to it because it’s literally governing and determining your entire life. so start learning some basics of it if you don’t already.

you know what baffles me? the fact that consistently american presidents really only need to gain the favour of a little over a quarter of the nations voters to get into office. because voting isn’t mandatory the usual turnout is like 53-57% of eligible voters actually casting a ballot. like can you imagine only having to win just a bit of 25% of a country to actually get into power? like that’s ridiculous to me. honestly can’t stress enough how messed up that is. honestly i believe the reason trump got in back in 2016 was because of the fact so many people didn’t think he’d get in and decided not to vote but his avid supporters wanted him in and managed to win it. which again, baffles me how it isn’t determined simply by popular vote. like imagine somehow trump comes out of this on top, right at the moment of writing this i can see that biden is ahead by roughly 3.5 million votes. like i stated a few days ago. how can you be voted for by the majority of the nation but not be given the presidency? then again, at the moment there are only 140 million votes counted and while there will be a lot more it definitely won’t be anywhere near the eligible number of voters which is roughly 240 million. like down here in australia all voting is compulsory at all levels from local to national, of course if you don’t want to you don’t have to but you end up facing a fine for it which i think is great.

again, there are literally nearly half of the american voting population sitting at home saying “nah i don’t wanna vote.” like genuinely can’t believe how you could do that, even if you don’t care for whatever selfish reason you have just go ahead and vote. and no, i’m not one of those people who only wants those people abstaining from voting to end up voting for the party / individual i would vote for if they were forced to have to vote for someone. for example with this election if i was an american i would be settling for biden. but does that mean i want to only force people not voting to go throw their support behind biden? no. legit i don’t care if you vote for biden, trump or kanye. all i would want is for every single person able to vote to do so. because if 100% of the voting population casts their votes and trump got in then at least then i could sit back and with a clear conscious say that the people of america had chosen him, and not just a quarter of them.

honestly the American voting system baffles me. firstly i can’t believe that voting isn’t compulsory, i think everyone should have to vote. but also the electoral college system is also mad, how come certain states dictate more than smaller states? popular vote should be the end of it, the people should elect the leader of their country. anyway enough political rambling, let’s just hope trump doesn’t somehow manage to squeeze back in.

i feel like rp back when i first came onto this app was dominated by book fandoms. now i feel like anime has taken over. wild to see times change tbh.
