Don’t vote

There is some people who believe that we all should be able to vote in the USA’s presidential elections because the decisions that are taken in the Oval Office have consequences all over the world. I am talking about wars, fight against terrorism, drugs… but also economy. Why not? We have become sort of second class citizens of the US because we suffer the effects of American policies and we are not able to say a thing about it. I only wish that all US citizens watched the following video (it’s less than five minutes, but it’s worth it). I hope more and more Americans will register and vote next November and will make a wise choice. This could be also applied to everyone that lives in a country where elections are free. Not taking part of the process brings incompetents to power and people are left aside or sent to war or bankrupt. We need politicians that think about people, about a future in peace, that think about healthcare and higher education for everyone, and that put environment before profits and oil companies. Please vote wherever you come from. But before, ask yourself some questions… why are in the situation we are right now? where was the need to send troops to foreign countries and cause more international instability? what was the result? who has taken profit of the instability and rise of oil prices? who did that?… It should be forbiden for presidents and vice-presidents to have personal and family interests in one industry. Don’t you think?

    És terrible que calgui fer un vídeo com aquest per “animar” la gent a exercir un dret fo-na-men-tal com és participar de la política! Què malament es deuen haver fet unes quantes coses perque tanta gent passi d’ella, com si les decisions que es prenen en els parlaments no anessin amb ells!

    Pel que fa al tema de la política als EUA, esperem que Europa arribi a tenir, aviat, un marcat perfil propi per no haver-nos de preocupar tant del que fan i deixen de fer els nordamericans.

    El vídeo molt bo! Potser el problema és que la gent s’ha de registrar, que no és excusa, però si la gent ha de fer aquest primer pas doncs els hi fa més pal. És més fàcil anar a votar si simplement pel fet de ser ciutadà americà doncs ja estàs registrat.

    En fi, ja veurem com acaba tot plegat!

    Salut!

    Ja estari bé que la resta del món pogues votar als Estats Units, el que em temo és que els resultats serien força diferents. Aquest és el problema que, molt sovint, el que els europeus, per exemple, creien que seria bo pels USA no és el mateix que pensen ells. A veure que passa amb el favorit Obama. Tot i que encara que guanyi, i, evidentment, sigui millor per la política internacional crec que és el mateix que aqui. Es a dir, millor el PSOE que el PP, a Madrid, però en el fons la seva política econòmica és la mateixa…
