What did they actually think they were voting for?

I came across a meme from a Trump supporter, I’ve posted it below and this is exactly what I wrote back to them underneath.

70 million

If he is, America is doomed. Did you just not care what he did before he was running? How many times he was sued for discrimination, stiffing his workers. Trumps charity was just shut down due to illegally funding. If that’s all of you…Wow, when did you all lose your souls?

That’s a genuine question by the way. Like, if you’re saying that’s all of you. How do you not get why we don’t like you? That you all don’t follow the Law, that you’re all just racist, sexists pigs? How many affairs do you allow your husband/s to have?

That you’re all just emotional twitter fanatics, who get upset by 16 year old children…Children who just want to help the planet you live on. Rather than sitting inside all day, doing drug, playing computer games. A child old enough to be your grandchild. That’s who you all are?

…I got blocked,lol

You have to ‘show up’ Australia Votes!

I actually wrote this a while ago, but I didn’t want to write it during my birthday month. I also thought it’d be appropriate to write this on the day #AustraliaVotes

I was having a conversation with someone about why Trump was voted in…Other than Russia and I have my own “theory” behind it as well. Too me it’s because ‘crazy’ people are committed. They WILL show up, they don’t care about if Trump was perfect or not. He emboldened their bigoted ways, that is all they cared about. Whereas the more ‘sane’ people went the Democrats weren’t 100% perfect, so nope, not voting at all.

So, really…whose more “crazy” lol

I remember watching a bit with John Oliver and talking about how the NRA at one point were just getting all these crazy gun laws through, because NRA members would show up to the meetings. They were an well-oiled machine, they would advertise the town hall meetings and what the bill that they wanted pass was called. John Oliver pointed out that the NRA doesn’t have that many members, its just that they were showing to the meetings. In fact, there was a gym franchise that has more members than the NRA. You can see the difference now with groups like Moms Demand showing up and getting sensible gun laws passed.

Martin Luther King, Gandhi…All these people who showed up, they made their physical presence known. Showing up made a difference.

Sometimes tweeting on Twitter isn’t enough.

It’s why I beg with Americans, even if your favourite Democrat or Independent doesn’t get a running at the Presidency. As long as the person who is running for the Presidency is a decent person, please vote for them. Please don’t just go “Nope, not voting”.  Show up and vote! It’s one of the things that I do like about Australia, we HAVE to vote.

SSM – Same Sex Marriage Postal Votes revealed!

Well today has been the day that Australia finds out the results of the Same Sex Marriage postal votes! Yes or No?!

The only problem with whatever this result reveals, doesn’t mean that we WILL get same sex marriage equality…That’s why there has been so much contention with this Vote. Even if the majority is for Yes, doesn’t mean that the Government have to do anything…STILL!

So pretty much even after the dividing the country for the last few months, instead of “just doing it”. Our politicians still don’t HAVE to make it happen. No matter the result.

All that said and done…

It’s a YES! YES VOTE WON!!!!

It’s Australia’s Turn!

Today it’s Australia’s turn, we are voting for our new Prime Minister. The run up to our elections don’t usually take as long as the US presidential elections. They’re usually quiet short, they have a run up of approximately of a couple of months. Like most campaigns all over the world they spend a lot of the time slamming each other in the media.

Even as I am heading towards the ballot, I have an idea of who I want to vote, but who really likes voting? When was the last time someone who was running really inspired you?
