I can't find any good anime streaming sites to watch anime on my phone with...

Why don't people consider that people watch videos on their phones and optimise them for it...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Voting just gives you the right to bitch about your government Laugh out load

Puh-lease. I reserve that right with and/or without voting.

Nope your not forced, you can opt out for a government donation of $140.00 per election, and have your drivers licence suspended if you refused to pay said $140.

see its completely optional. Weeping

That's not really opting out...


You know I've looked into the laws fairly deep and I have not found a single reason for voting to be compulsory...

1. It forces a baseline minimum interaction between citizenship and government
2. It encourages a voice for the political centre, rather than having politics be dominated by the extremes
3. It encourages a more stable political system, where a 6% swing in votes is actually a 6% swing in the population, not in some minority subset of the citizenry.

I don't see a problem with voting being a responsibility of citizenship, alongside serving on a jury.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Okay, accepting those, why am I (and likely many, many others) being forced to vote for people I don't care about in a system I have next to no interest in?
Why is not voting not an option? It seems perfectly reasonable to me that the right to elect representatives and the right to not take part should be hand-in-hand.

I panicked and started crying because I couldn't find my cat Theodore so I thought he got out of our yard and then I found him cuddled up on one of the shelves in the bathroom closet and I cried more because I was happy and then I ate a sandwich and if this doesn't sum up a girl's menstrual cycle than idk what does.

I'm no expert, but I thought women only ate ice cream and chocolate on their menstrual cycles? Consider
