Let's get serious

Post by Sangoma »

I wanted to start a poll, but don't know how to do it.

Who will win the election this year? Trump or Biden? I reckon Trump will stay.

Despair will take first, followed by resignation, then apathy. Then whoever was the best at buying votes in the handful of counties that matter.

You guys won't believe it, but people around me are very fired up about the election. Hatred of Trump permeates Australia for some reason, mysterious to me.

My personal, very uneducated opinion of someone who watches news maybe once a week, and only because TV set is on in the staff room, is that Trump will stay.

Come on, spider monkeys, loosen up your wallets a little, put some dough on the line!

That's because you're surrounded by other immigrants in Sydney. Real legacy Australians, not you in other words, love Trump and real American values. In fact, there are few countries that share more common spirit with the USA than Australia, and are our loyal partners in the struggle against China.

Have many americans in friendlist onFB and last month I saw a lot of memes about Biden and Trump.
Some were funny (these must be from russian trolls).
But today i scrolled down several pages and not a single mention about either Trump or Biden. People must be tired of them both.

Everything I know about Australia I’ve learned from watching Outback Truckers on Netflix.

Hardly. I didn't vote for Trump last time but I like his policies more than Biden's. It's as simple as that. And, I don't profess to have any idea who will win.

Also, what am I wrong about? Americans and Australians don't have a lot in common?

I just liked the idea of a bunch of hippies in a Trump cult.

I'm not really up to date on Australian politics.

Sure, they have a lot in common. They are also vastly different.

Note the antisocial cranoimetry of the Slav, and the malicious criminality harbored therein.
