If your mental health is preventing you from doing anything then that is fine and fair. However, I mean, when I was in Germany on my Erasmus Year, I got the paper work sorted so I could vote in the London Mayoral Elections, the General Assembly and the EU Referendum… It was a lot of paper work but I did it. Because democracy is important… so you know might as well at least try?
I most definitely will! I always go vote though there hasn’t been much important stuff since I turned the right age, so it’s not like I have that much experience. I was just unsure about whether I can, but I suppose there should be some way for people abroad for this one as well. I’ve resolved to figure out letter voting the moment I realized there’ll be a general election while I’m away, I can’t really rant about politics if I’m not voting myself after all
AURORA, Colo. — Nearly every other constituent brought up health care at a town hall here on the outskirts of Denver on Wednesday night, in one of the most competitive House districts in the country.
But not a single one did it to thank Rep. Mike Coffman for backing the House GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Instead, dozens of local residents — Democrats and Republicans — pummeled the Colorado Republican for supporting legislation they said would harm their community.
Standing before a packed auditorium at a University of Colorado satellite campus in Aurora, one young woman pressed Coffman on how he could commit to a bill she fears would hurt people with pre-existing conditions. Another stood up to say her cousin with epilepsy would die without Medicaid, which would be scaled back significantly by the GOP plan.
“I’m sorry to say I was shocked when you declared your intention to vote for the American Health Care Act,” said Steven Haas, a 68-year-old lifelong registered Republican. “That is not the way we do things here in Colorado.”
Paul Ryan has turned off ALL of his public telephones & fax machines in response to protests in favor of Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, Medicare, etc. And he is NOT accepting signed petitions; instead he’s TURNING AWAY voters who deliver the petitions. So, let’s see what 67 million postcards looks like in his driveway.
It’s bullshit that he does not want to hear from those (whom he was elected to represent) who feel that Medicare, Affordable Care and Planned Parenthood is important.
He is a godamned elected official. It’s part of the job and we all pay his salary. Even if you voted for Trump, if you receive Medicare, the quality of your health care may be at risk.
Please start mailing postcards to his HOME:

This is a response to all the hatemail clogging my ask box (and probably the reason why anonymousasks will be permanently shut off).
1. No one is going to take your rights away from you.
2. America obviously chose the person they thought was a better President.
3. If your personal candidate did not win, suck it up and move on. It is not the end of the world.
4. If you are not an American citizen, stop ✋. Just stop. It isn’t your country, and you do not get a say in how people vote.
5. Racist and bigoted comments are not necessary just because Trump is President Elect.
6. Trash talking Trump or those individuals who voted for him is not necessary just because your candidate did not win.
7. Sending death threats to people you do not agree with is no way to act as a human being.
8. Women also voted for Trump, as did LGBGTQ… , Latinos, African-Americans, Native Americans, and immigrants, Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Atheists. So just stop ✋, take a breath. Voting for Trump does not mean anyone is a homophobe, misogynist, racist, or anything else.
9. If you want change, you have to show up and work for it.
10. If you were registered to vote, but didn’t, you have no right to criticize people who did.
11. Anger leads to a shorter, unhappy life. If you can’t calm down and think clearly about life, then it is time to seek out professional help. For your own health.
12. People who voted based on their religious beliefs and practices and morality are free to do so. That right is given via the Constitution of the United States.
13. Religious freedom.
14. I have found peace of mind and spirit in Jesus Christ, and I suggest that if you don’t know God in the same manner, that you do so. He is the only reason why I have found it impossible to hate anyone, even those who hate me because I don’t bowdown and follow their opinions.
15. Ovaries are not a recommendation for the Presidency of the United States.
16. Just because someone is a woman does not mean they are qualified to be the President of the United States.
17. Calling for riots, rape, muder, or any other harm to people who did not vote your way is immature and a crime against humanity.
18. Control of House and Senate does not equal fascism.
Vote for someone who does not advocate war crimes.
Vote for someone who doesn’t call Mexican immigrants rapists.
Vote for someone who will respect the USA’s freedom of religion.
Vote for someone who supports your Constitution.
Vote for someone who understands why Canadian/European health care systems are better for their citizens.
Vote for someone who is capable of telling the truth, and makes an effort to do so.
Vote for someone who knows what an apology is and is both willing and capable of making one.
Vote for someone who knows they’re not infallible
Vote for someone who has not openly stated an intention to abuse the power of the office to influence the Attorney General’s investigations.
Vote for someone who is not openly calling for the imprisonment of his opponent.
Vote for someone who has served in public office before.
Vote for someone who supports the rights of women, minorities, immigrants, the LGBTA++ community.
Vote for someone who understands and respects the law.
Don’t elect a rapist. Don’t elect a racist. Don’t elect Brock Turner at the age of 70. Don’t elect someone who is working actively with a known enemy of state (Russia) to smear his opponent.
Don’t elect Donald Trump. That means you have to vote for Hillary Clinton. She may not be your favourite. She’s not as cool as Barack Obama. She’s not as cool as Justin Trudeau. She’s a politician and has made politician mistakes. She’s also done a lot of good. She’s someone who will make mistakes and potentially unpopular decisions. She’s also someone who will do it within the confines of US law, with respect to the Constitution. She will listen to her advisors and come up with great ideas of her own. She will BE a president. Do not put nuclear power into the hands of a man who pops tic-tacs in case he feels like sexually assaulting the first woman he sees, who threatens to sue people for speaking the truth. Who is too sensitive to handle having his tiny hands called small. Do not let this man start World War III. The way of the world is to come together, to make peace, to find our commonalities and celebrate diversity, to understand that the days of segregation and notions of racial or religious or sexual “superiority” are over.
These are the issues that are up for election: don’t think of it as voting for Hillary Clinton rather than Donald Trump. Think of it as voting for women’s rights vs voting for rape culture. That’s what this election is about. Think of it as voting for racial equity rather than Holocaust II: the Muslim Version. This is the time to stand up as a citizen of your country and say firmly that America values equality and justice and truth. A vote for anyone but Hillary Clinton is a vote for Donald Trump. And a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for the silencing and disempowering of women, for the deportation of Muslims - but it won’t end there; soon it will be anyone and everyone else who fails to fit whatever standard Donald Trump deems below par: women he considers fat or ugly, other races, other religions, all immigrants who are not Caucasian, etc. A vote for Trump is a vote for walls between countries rather than peace. There is no room for hesitation on this. There is no room for a third party candidate, and this is not the time to spoil your ballot or skip voting altogether. Hillary is in the lead by only 3% as of this moment and she needs every vote she can get. Trump MUST be kept out of the Oval Office, and only you can make this happen!
Early voting has already started. Get out there and do it. On behalf of the rest of the world, who will ALL suffer if Trump wins this election: do it for us. PLEASE.
“My dear beneficiaries this is a sample of the many maneuvers that the doctors have to implement when there is a lack of medical equipment to continue preserving your health supplies, and yes It is outrageous but for us it’s more outrageous that you vent your discontent and dissatisfaction on those who do everything possible to help. It’s a fault from the government for prefer to give flat screen TVs to keep you all watching soap operas and Laura in America. You’re willing to queue under the sun for hours but if at the pharmacy they take 20 minutes, then you take retaliate with which dispatches when they’re just doing their job. We have to be consistent and instead of complaining about the health service make sure to assert your vote and claim to the goverment” Not my picture or caption
This is an example of what is really happening in Venezuela, the hospitals don’t have the equipment necessary to save lives, you can’t find all the medicine you need, you need to queue under the sun for hours to get the most importants groceries (Corn flour, oil, milk) and when you find them you need to make sure you can buy them the right day (because you must buy according to the finals numbers of your ID), the price of the electronic equipment is up in the sky and our goverment keep blame others when they’re stealing the money of our country.
