Is that the fault of the voters or the fault of the candidates?

These people are just so short sighted. Refusal to "choose" is still a choice, and the consequence for that are just as real as everything they're so upset over.

She will leave her fans behind to toil in slavery in the fields as she parties in Europe. I only hope the wealthy - who try to leave America to escape the carnage they helped create - are recognized and given a proper welcome with sunflower seeds stuffed in their pockets

It's time to vote for a repaired system.

  • Congressional Term Limits
  • Supreme Court Term Limits
  • Allow the people to vote on the Supreme Court
  • Do away with the two-party system
  • Stop voting for Old (too old) Wealthy (too wealthy) candidates, the 1% percent does not represent the masses.

There is currently no politician who is out to help the people over themselves.

She maintained, that despite her stance, she is not encouraging people not to vote. "I'm not encouraging anybody to not vote. You do what you want to do, but I'm telling you what I'm doing and that's it," she said. "But the more you know, and the more passionate you become, the more you see that our leaders are evil. "She said that people have told her that she needs to "pick the lesser evil" when it's time to vote this year, but she considers both of them "evil."

"I'm all for protecting America and for the better of America, but this war is not doing nothing for America and it hurts me," she said. "Children are dying... I hate that, that disgusts me no matter what religion, no matter what language we speak. We all have one thing in common. We love our children, we love our parents, we love our family."

If she thinks Trump would lead to any less dead children she will be disappointed. Vote for Biden or get Trump that's about it.
