I'd ask that in addition to voting,those considering voting go and get informed as much as is reasonable possible on the policy they will be voting for. I've been doing work at voting centers and speaking with the voters on line. Many are unfortunately gravely illiterate on political policy and many reacted with shock at even much repeated proposals or events happening currently. Political ignorance works to the established and corrupts advantage. They love pressuring populations they know will vote for them with all manner of "Go vote" rhetoric which in spirit seems admirable but without further action on the voters part, can end up with them voting in policy detrimental to their interest and/or only in interest to those already in power.

Thus too often voters react with shock to policy they don't like but voted in huge numbers merely because they went in,voted blindly down the row of their preferred party and went off with out much fuss. The sleazy political dregs know this and work with sleazy social and legacy media to keep this mentality going. Always saying to "go vote" but little else. I'm not at all claiming that this fine image is doing that but I want to exclaim how simply saying to go vote is hardly sufficient to improve democracy.

Voters must now and forever be implored to come to a further understanding of civic culture. To gain at least basic knowledge of often purposely byzantine electoral matters and government functionalism. To see past the snazzy slogans and buzzwords propped up by corporate backed media that often do a candidates campaign for them, designed to lull and simply for political ends reality, and look with a skeptical but open eye upon the upon the vast collection of alternative sources of information to come to a greater understanding of world happening around them.

In short,the entrenched,career politician sleeping with big "X" has nothing to fear from a "Go vote".

They soil their pants when their voters say "Explain in detail how this policy will work for me more than the other candidates plan?"

The informed voter is every politicians fear.

Because you quoted the entirety of a wall of off topic text, and added a single sentence to the end of it.

Twice.

It would be incredibly weird if we deleted the wall of text post for being off topic, and left it being quoted in its entirety, not once but twice.

But, yes, if you want to discuss that stuff that we deleted, the Generals >> Politics thread is the perfect place for it. And if you want to talk some more about posts being deleted, the support forums listed on the contact page are a great place to do that.

To try to get back on topic for this beautiful fan art, if you are an Amer Ekan, be sure to vote, like the God-Princesses of Night and Day recommend.

Can't vote for your President because i'm an fucking German.(yes i hate my Country with all my Heart!!!!,and now i Off Topic again,so i just Shut up and by!)

I refuse to vote! I hate the government and don’t care about them.

Unless the vote is for Best Princess; my vote is for Luna.

I believe he was referring that the Democrats won the popular vote by 3 million,due to the most populous states leaning blue. Of course in legal election terms that is irrelevant as the electoral college exist to ensure that elections don't become a pure popularity contest and that areas that are less populous don't get completely ignored by candidates who would otherwise only campaign in cities and the like and a handful of states would decide the election every time.

Trump won the most electoral votes,partially since he bothered to actually campaign outside hot spots while Hillary decided certain areas weren't worth her time,just assuming the election was hers to win. So Trump got his electoral vote majority as per the rules of the election that was accepted,established and known and agreed to by all parties and candidates and thus won. That is how a representative republic (of which the USA is) is run.
