okay @ all of france i really really REALLY need you to go vote in the second round, PLEASE.
if you don’t want le pen to win, vote for macron. it’s that easy.
no “she’ll never win anyway”. that’s how brexit happened.
no “but he’s not great either”, that’s how trump got elected.
no “I’m abstaining because i want to send a message”, that’s just plain stupid and i hope i don’t have to explain why oh my god. PLEASE.
If Le Pen wins, the EU is finished. Yes I’m german and I’m openly admitting that without France, we can’t do it.
If she manages to win the election she’ll also be able to get France to leave the EU, and that will be a desaster for everyone involved.
Look up how absolutely fantastic the Brexit negotiations are going if you’re still on the fence about that.
It’s a very similar situation to the one the US was in last year.
“ugh a boring politician they’re not exciting and has ties to the big banks and voting for them won’t change anything god i hate the system” candidate
“oh look a charismatic fascist who will probably literally kill us all and throw the country, if not the continent, into utter chaos” candidate.
please think twice before you say it’s a choice between two evils. it’s not pest oder cholera, at the very worst it’s a stubbed toe versus lung cancer, and the lung cancer’s best chances lie in people not voting at all.
