Iran vs USA elections

posted 2012.03.03, under blog

Iran had an election recently. Iran has this “Guardian Council” which makes sure candidates are good. In the USA there are different restrictions in different states. You may require signatures if you want to run as a non-Republican or Democrat. And of course, you can only expect to win if you have enough money, or the backing by those who have money. (And of course, you can’t vote if you have a felony conviction in a number of states.) I can’t quickly find information on voter restrictions in Iran.

Conclusion: Depending on where you are in the USA, your rights to stand and vote may be less than your rights in Iran!

Freedom, don’t you love it!

(Also, the answer is, of course, anarchy. Fuck Iran, fuck the USA, and fuck hypocrisy.)
