Australia’s Tragedy Is a Cautionary Tale for the US Presidential Election

Ironically and morosely at the same time, the “right-to-life” contingent cannot see the (burning now-or-soon-to-be) forest for the trees. I guess the rapture concept can rally the masses to commit all sorts of atrocities if the messaging is adjusted to their amygdala at the right frequency. Get out the vote Progressives!

If Australians had any sense…apparently they do not. They would have stormed that fu$king yacht and dragged Murdoch and Morrison to the outback and tied those 2 Bastards to a to a tree and left them.
A little KOALA revenge.

It’s a little early for women over fifty to have decided for whom they are going to vote.

There are as yet no certain candidates. The closest is of course Donald Trump, but he is embattled legally and otherwise unhelpful. The institutional Democratic Party is working overtime to prevent the rise of any acceptable candidate.

sorry, the Australians voted for someone they knew was a climate denier and loved coal, its no excuse that the other candidate was less than perfect. I feel more sorry for the suffering or dead animals that didn’t get to vote than the Australians

Australia seems to be having some of the same political problems that the US is having. Our country is already a cautionary tale for the rest of the world. Look at the climate denying, lying, and narcissistic tRump. Why is anyone still considering voting for him? The fact that we have people who would vote for him still is proof that the US is a mess. Vote for Bernie Sanders 2020.

Female, over 50 – Definitely decided and committed to Bernie Sanders. He has the strongest plan for climate action – and also for returning a sense of justice and neighborliness to this country.
