Sometimes it's good to have an pseudonymous blog redux

As I happened to be at home during my homeland's snap election, and as my homeland is still dinging me for tax and as I don't believe in taxation without representation, and as my accountant may have fucked up the surrender of my residency in my homeland for tax purposes (so I might need increasing amounts of representation), I voted. And while my ballot is private, let's just say I exercised my rights and responsibilities as the citizen of a parliamentary democracy to vote for one of the weirdo parties who don't even have the possibility of winning built into their platform but whose views best represent my ideological convictions. Don't tell my parents. They're big movers and shakers in one of the non-loony parties.

Yankees, eat your hearts out. Or rather, do what you have to do to get rid of the Republicans, and then hit the streets and protest until you get a functioning parliamentary democracy, instead of the bullshit you have now that amounts to an expensive, well-spun form of fascism, which voting for a third-party candidate merely fucking bolsters.

Oh, and P.S., if I hear one more fucking American defend the nonsense that is their two party system by saying 'at least it's better than Italy', I'll fucking slap them. When it comes to politics, you know what else is better than Italy? The entire developed world. If that's the benchmark they're comparing yourself to, then I don't think they should be allowed to even hold pointy objects anymore, let alone atomic weaponry. One of my Yankee bosses was the latest one to poop out that little gem in front of me, and I think I nearly had an embolism, it was so hard to keep the scorn inside.
