Looking Forward to November

When it comes to crazy statements from Trump or reminders from the Clinton campaign about what he has said, then I must say I am looking forward to november. Once elections are over, we will have a decision, and then it will all be over.

Hopefully with the right result, but when it comes to democracy there is no 'right' or 'wrong'. Once the votes are in, the people have spoken. Those who choose not to vote won't get any influence in results, and they are disqualified from speaking until they have done their democratic duty of voting at the next elections.

You can't speak if you can't be bothered to put that voice into a decision at the elections... :-)

There is a huge difference between voting blank and not turning up at the voting booth at all. By at least showing your disrespect - if that is your decision - you are making a statement which is your prerogative in a democracy.

It was the same thing that happened in Britain. When the people votes NO to remaining in the EU, and therefore YES to a #Brexit, some began to talk about a second election because they had chosen to vote in rebellion against government.

Well, you should remain ON TOPIC when dealing with a democracy. Stupidity has a price, and you shouldn't put in your own thoughts about what elections are about. Adult people who have a vote also have a duty to think about where to place that vote.
