They don't care...
yeah I knew that
I knew that as soon as I started typing it
problem is, that was fine 100 years ago, but these days, I think they possibly should..
True.... But they don't care.
I have a feeling that a lot of people are just going to vote for Trump just for fun.
should anyone really actually give a shit what anyone outside of the country think of them in regards to whom they vote in.... specially considering that due to the massive broken political system in the US that means that over 20% of the residence's votes never actually matter anyways since they are basically chucked out.... and swept under the rug.
darn you younglings and that wizardry electro business, making my witty one-liners useless!
I think Tasty is older than you Neshi, I think the man is in his 40s lol.
LOL... I know I can act like an old-fart sometimes but that picture in my avatar is me, you know
Well... considering the USA has a massive sway on influencing the policy, economy and other things in the world... yeah, it should be a consideration if anyone can think outside of that
Buuuutttt... a scarily high number of the American electorate don't realise anything exists outside of 'murica
I think that was misunderstood.... I was more pointing out that fact that it's kind of hypocritical to think or figure that they should or would be concerned about the outside world's thoughts when the outside world frankly would be just as pissed off or displeased with the idea that the US or any other parts of the outside word would have to say or think about their own elections.... oh wait, plenty of countries and people within them are already thoroughly pissed off about the US essentially giving the "shocker" to any country they can stick their meat into and intentionally swaying government power to "their liking" countless times.
I get what you are saying; people will be pissed off at the US whether or not Trump happens to be(come) president.
That is certainly true
That's an isolationist mentality, having a perception that the world doesn't like you and is being unjust to you and thus supporting the leaders that are most at odds with the world. That's how people thought in Serbia during the nineties, when we were under UN sanctions, and it's the way of thinking that kept Milošević in power for so long.
Well Milosevic wasn't completely crazy...
Understandable... but during an election in any country.... talk to someone that may or may not be politically enthusiastic from that country.... and then disagree with them even a bit... and you'll generally get told that they couldn't give a shit what you think and many will even tell that you shouldn't even be thinking about it in the first place....
There's a huge difference though. Whatever takes place in a small banana republic doesn't have much impact on the world, what happens in USA does.
Only because we let it...
Don't have that much choise really. Considering how dependant the entire world is from american goods, at least high tech goods, and how protectionistic the american people is of it's own assets and economy this won't change in the short term.
Though, this is better today than it was decades ago. Hopefully there will be a better balance in the future.
"we" as in the mass population.... together.... as a whole are responsible.
Not that I support this. The population can't even stop using DRM and Windows 10 and Facebook for one day to make a change there. Thinking about something as big as what you are referring to....makes me laugh about any expectation of mass movements on any matter. Again, I don't agree with it in the first place, but I had to say this. Delusions don't bring change, even if they are based/supported on leftist ideology. Well, outside religion that is, but even that has stopped mattering as much lately.
Sadly enough we "westerners" have become to lazy. Sure, we want revolution but let someone else do it because we're to busy with our smartphones and netflixes...
