"Ittou dokusai seiji"
One-party dictatorship government
So it's election time on the other side of the pond. Sometimes I wonder if there were any way for us ordinary citizens in other countries to affect US elections, as what happens politically in the US so very heavily influences what happens to, well, the entire planet. However, since there's no way that's going to happen, my opinion is not important. I will say this, though, to Americans screaming about the prospect of continuous one-party rule.
That's what Japan has pretty much had for the past 50 years.
It's messed up, yes, and it should change, yes, but we do respect that our country is not the disaster area it might be without regular elections.
