I'm just curious.
Since this seems to be a dominant topic of conversation globally.

To keep it anonymous, just vote without replying.
Or you can reply with a comment related to the election of you like, but please don't say which way you voted.

And I hope you'll forgive my ignorance of US political parties, I've only heard of the Democrats and Republicans.
Feel free to educate me.

I’m always baffled by you guys who are in other countries but still follow our politics. I would not give a toot if I didn’t live here.

It’s because you rule the world.

For instance, in the Middle East:
- Arab countries and Israel want Trump.
- Turkey, Iran, Qatar and Muslim Brotherhood and its other radical branches want Biden.

American foreign policy can end up having quite an effect on other countries, and in Europe we are used to following each others elections so it doesn't seem anything unusual to us i guess

Indeed, in Europe full of small-to-medium countries closely tied to each other, interest in other countries' politics and situation comes kind of naturally.

I remember spending a day working in the garden with headphones on listening for hours to the debates on a round (not even the final) of the earlier French Election rounds to see if Melanchon would get through :lol:

So this may be a difference between the US system and others but we don't actually vote for parties we vote for candidates, and some rare birds like myself still "split-ticket."

People shouldn’t elect for candidates either, but for programmes.... and previous proven track of success.

Real Causal Effect;
Just Coincidental And Reality too...

Based on 538 Dot Com Assessment

At Least And On the 'Wrong Planet'

His Chances in Florida Are Going
Down even Further, So Far, Based on His Leads from 2016; And Reality So Far Now;

If He LoseS in Florida, Zero Percent Chance for a Win, Becomes Trump's Reality;

Oh Sweet Florida Orange Juice Blue; My Wife is Keeping me Updated from the Other Room; HAha...

Meanwhile,
Another
Hurricane
Or Other Tropical
System is Pointing Florida's Eventual ETA or THETA Way...

Minion Panhandle Again...

Perhaps

As A

Lame
Duck Coming

In Florida Unmasked Pandemic Ignorance...

Unfortunately, the Governor, the 'Other Florida

Man', Isn't Running to Lose on November 3rd, too....

Moral oF A S Tory; 'You' Don't Make A Pharaoh Mud-Mix to Build Golden Pyramid
TowerS iN Old '10 Commandments' Movie' Way of Elders In Pandemic Plague Way;
And Expect to Win Florida, When Grandma And Grandpa Are Still Voting to Save their Lives...

As 'Moses'

To Pull Grandma
Clear Out of
The Way of
NeWeR AGE Golden Pyramid Mortar Mix...

i Did My Best as A Butterfly Effect to Dance
Free Enough Public in 86 Months for 13,833 Miles
to Color Youth Liberal Enough for An Adult Blue Vote...

It doesn't Appear that was necessary at all at this Point; hehe

It
Is still
Great Fun Now;

And If You Will Note
Florida Is In the Shape
of A Gun and verily my
Public Dance was Squarely
And Is Still Loaded in a Rampage Dancing
Spree in the Barrel of the Florida Gun For Real...

As 'They' 'Dance Sing' too..

Push the Button...

Galvanize the Vote Blue;

Make Florida Revolver Gun Flowers
Roses For All in Opportunities RiSinG For

Greater Equality Now...

As Trump

He's
FiRED!

Right now American politics is like a crazed reality show, it’s cheap and offensive but yet you keep on watching out of morbid curiosity.

“You can fool all the people some of the time
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

Ironically, A Quote 'Attributed' to Lincoln,
And Still Attributed to Lincoln That Simply
Two Seconds of ReSearch on Google Proves is Incorrect...

The Irony of Fox (Faux) News Equally Great, hehe,
Calling Arizona Early Winner for Biden Along with the

Associated Press too...

Never the Less,
At Least, in this
Case, Ironically
too; it Appears
in 'This Scenario
Against Trump's Wishes
Fox News coming True Now with Truth...

It's What 'You' Do; Now, Anyway, When the
Tide is Changing Without Any Principles
of Honesty, Integrity in the First Place,
Except For Chris Wallace and a Few
Others With Some Character at
Least; 'You' 'JUMP SH8P QUICK'

Before
the
'Captain'
Sinks 'Your'
News Channel Ship...

'The Mice' Grab Their
'Tiny Men' Life Rafts...

And Begin to Float Away
From Their SinKinG KinG's SH8P...

Anyway, The 'Socialist Conspiracy Theories'
Worked Among the ones Willing not to Do
The Research to Prove the Lies False; and
As Usual, the 'Others' Pushing through in
Florida on the Tales of 'Florida Men',
Lies, And Conspiracy Theories False,
in Other Wise Ways, False in Light True..

For All to See, At Least Who Spend around
Two Seconds, Proving the Conspiracy
Theories And Lies All False on a Quick
Thank You Google For Setting St8ff
'Snopes'
And
'Fact
Check' False...

It's Like All 'The Bibles'...
Don't Matter Who Dances
Sings the 'Rhema' of 'Logos' Like:

"You can fool all the people some of the time
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time"

As LonG aS UNiVersAlly We Find These Truths of Human
Cross-CulturALLY As True or False Among Humans As Still Evolving Now...

Let's Face It;
THere Are
Shallow
And
Deep
Waters
in Ocean Same...

As Biden More than Likely
Wins and Proves A Second (Term)
Part of the Quote Now True in Universal Truth too...

"You can fool all the people some of the time
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time"

'Not me
Baby';
Ain't
That What
'They' All Say...

This Has Been A Fascinating
Anthropological Study; How
A Demagogue Opens a
Win And Closes
A Loss
With
The Same
GaMe Plan
As More Folks
Wake up to LieS in Light...

True Attributes too in Study For Social Sciences
Interdisciplinary With Psychology And
Overall Human Well being Study in

Health Science too; Finally Getting
to Use All 3 of my College
Degrees too... Hooray!

Just For Fun! Who
Needs Pay For Currency
Only of Loving It All Pay Rate,
Pay Grade, Currency Same Differently too...

Again, An Excellent Study Now That Shows
What Will Happen When Someone 'Runs',
Who Constantly Lies Every Day with No
Regrets; Just Enjoying Lying More Every Day

TO SELFiSHLY, SELFiSHLY GET THEiR WAY;

It's True, A Dark Force oF Lies Galvanizes
Some Minions With A Despicable Leader
As Spoon-Fed in Twitter And Other
Fast Story Ways Each and Every
Day; but on the Other
Hand, Once Again,
The Second
Part of the
Quote
Returns
to Erase
The First
Part of the Quote Again...

"You can fool all the people some of the time
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time"

'Trust me', 'i' could 'Sell' 'You' 'A Used Car' As i Break
Rules Too; But Nah, Still Now Empaths Just Don't Have
What it Takes Now Still to Harm Folks 'Left' And 'Right' More...

True;
Still Too;
Two Ways
Of Galvanizing
Souls NoW iN DarK or LiGHT
Wins and Loses of Life aS AGAiN
We Shall See Next When Trump Is Officially FiReD!

By Some Folks
in the Second
Part of the Quote Again...

"You can fool all the people some of the time
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time"

Moral oF A SToRY, Don't Be A First Part
of this Universal Truth False iN LiGHT...

Do the Last Part oF A Quote Greater...

Galvanize in Truth, Honor,
Integrity, And Character
And Jesus F in Christ
Use Google

It's

An

Excellent Research
Tool To Dispel Lies...

Yes, i Understand
'Candy Crush Life'
Doesn't Leave Much
Space for SeeKinG Truth Out oF Lies...

Yet, It's Definitely True, Free For All to Still Seek
And Find; at Least As LonG as the Information/Art

Highway to

Heaven is Free...

Note: In the Previous
Comment; the Mileage
Is Not Correct; It is now
13,933 Miles of Public
Dance; 'Crazy 8' Typo Again, hehe..;)
