My mood after I saw the results of the federal elections on tv this evening... Wtf?! Now a racist party named AfD is the third strongest part of our government in Germany. They've got over 88 seats now. That's really horror... I'll never understand how people could believe their stupid Propaganda speeches full of lies, fake shit & hatred and think those haters will lead them into a more positive future. That's so f*ck*ng stupid naive! But, to be fair, circa 60% of those idiot voters are no racists, just protest voters who wanted to show politicians that they'll vote nazis if the other parties dont care enough for their problems&sorrows. But, to be honest, that's dumb enough. There have been a lot of other, more harmless parties like the fun party 'Die Partei' they could vote for. I never thought that people in Germany will be dumb enough to vote nazis to their government again... 13% of them did. Enough to be alarmed.
A dark day for Germany.

We're just ten days away from the German Federal Elections. With all eyes now on #Germany , GMF unpacks the candidates, top issues, and what this election means for the transatlantic relationship: www.gmfus.org/germanelections
This rant is extremely relevant right now. To all of you out there saying you're not gonna vote this election, you're not helping anyone, not even yourself! Everyone should vote during every election, that includes local, state, and federal elections. If you don't participate in voting then I don't want to hear you complain about any part of our government. You still have a little time left to register here in Texas, if you haven't already. I know it can feel exhausting sometimes, I know it seems as if our votes don't matter, but if a politician gets elected that you do or don't like isn't it better to say that at least you tried? People who don't vote frustrate me more than people who vote for politicians that I don't like. Millennials have the highest percentage of nonvoters ever in the history of our country, WHAT'S UP WITH THAT Y'ALL?! We are the technology generation, doing research on politics is literally at our finger tips. There is no excuse for Millennials not to vote and yet most of us don't! If more of us voted during the primaries, then maybe the major party candidates would be 2 different politicians... but we'll never know because most of y'all reading this didn't voice your opinion through the power of voting. The US is supposed to be a Democracy, but how can that be if people don't vote? It is a right that all of our ancestors earned for us, some of us more recently than others, exercise your right to vote in honor of them if nobody else. I encourage all of you to make an educated opinion and vote in November, I'm not gonna tell you who to vote for, just do it! #VOTE#rant#FBmemory#2014#relevant#Democracy#presidentialelection#localelections#stateelections#federalelections#rockthevote#powerofvoting#government#corruption#lifetimeseats#terms#Millenials#nonvoters#standup#speakout#fightforyourrights#power#honor#checksandbalances#hitthepolls#justdoit#Novemberiscoming ✔
Liberals heading towards an overwhelming majority! Congratulations on entering a new, post-conservative, and hopefully much more progressive Canadian government!
P.S. as an added bonus, Canada can now boast of having one of the most good-looking heads of state worldwide:D Yay!
