Over the weekend I started up a few drafts on my account. I had never used this feature before, but think that it will take precedent over my prompt jar. With drafts, I can add details and pictures as they come to me and just revisit them later. My prompt jar papers have random sentences on them which by the time I get around to them I have no idea what I was thinking about in that moment haha!!
This morning I didn’t really have a topic I wanted to write about, but I noticed this in my draft folder and would like some commentary. Please understand I am NOT looking for backlash or hateful speech here at all, just a little understanding.
Being a political science major, everyone expects me to be up to date on the American election. Honestly, I specialized in global governance and international relations. I didn’t take any American political class, and I only took the Canadian classes that I was forced to take to get my degree. So I have a few questions for my American friends (or anyone who has an opinion really):
- Why does your election take so long to happen?! I swear I have been hearing about it for at least a year and it’s still not over. Please explain this to me! As a Canadian, our campaign season is at most like 3 months.
- In your own words, what’s the different between democrats and republicans?
- Who are you supporting and why? No mud slinging required, but lemme know your thoughts on who you are supporting.
- After all the bad things I keep hearing about Donald Trump, and this photo that I found on my Facebook feed,
Are there any Trump supporters who can explain why they support Trump? Again, don’t throw mud, I’m not judging I am seriously just curious. He obviously has supporters so he must be doing something right. We all know that the media loves to focus on the bad, and that’s all I’d reading. Please educate me 🙂
So once again, I’m going to say this perfectly clear: This is a safe place for discussion. I do not want a flame war happening in my comments section. If it starts, I will delete the comments and/or shut them down. I am just looking for facts and your personal opinions to understand the election better.
Just one last thing: it doesn’t matter to me who you support or why. But it is important to go out and vote. The most recent Canadian election had a huge surge in voter turnout and we achieved some pretty amazing changes. So if all you take away from this is one last thing then that’s ok!
GO VOTE!!! (whenever this crazy long campaign is over)
