I Deserve To Vote

I am not sure if this is a fresh idea or not but I believe this is a legitimate concern. Every person around the world should vote in the US presidential election.

The US is the richest country in the world and it has placed itself as the most important country in international finance. That means every decision that the US makes, we get affected.

If the US calls for a war, the Filipino government is forced to support them because we are going to face financial ramifications if we go against it. If the US stock market falls, outsourced jobs in the Philippines are affected as well.

I am sure this is not unique to the Philippines.

Ridiculous as it may sound, I believe I should have the right to vote for this coming US election. Whether or not I like it, I am going to be directly affected by any decision the next president will make.

asking me who I will vote for is like asking me if I like boys. The answer is very obvious.
