Haha...half of my family is (or was) ultra-Republican. They were so vocal at all of our get togethers, but ever since Donald Trump has gained popularity, and especially after his Mexican comments, they are very confused and have remained ultra quiet at our family get togethers. lol

Bernie Sanders vs Donald Trump???

I know what you mean mine were vocal also at least three of them were I finally had enough and smacked them down with facts now we don't discuss it any longer. The family gatherings are now more enjoyable.

Then on the other side of the spectrum you have Donald Trump and Ted Cruz... Leading the GOP.

Basically the far-left and far-right are in the spotlight, and it's pretty entertaining. I hope It ends up being Sanders vs Trump. That would be fun to watch.


I don't think US politics is interesting at all. Entertaining?? Yes.

Being Canadian, I can't even fathom the length of time it takes to elect someone. It just becomes a freakin gong how after 3 months. Which is longer than the longest campaign in Canadian history.

Finnish politics are a snoozefest, with different interest parties each pushing into every different direction. Politics have become much more dysfunctional and it takes way too long to get anything through and changed in the society.

Even politicans have difficulties to stay awake, like the former Minister of Culture and Sports there sitting on the left

Finally the Minister of Defence taps him and says "don't fall asleep".

I'm surprised no one have named our parliament and government yet. Sometimes our politic seems like a soap opera, or a parody of a serious parliament .

Those are some random photos-video, just as examples

Those Ukranians, any excuse for a fight

The Russians have met their match, unfortunately the west forced Ukraine to give up its nukes, now look at it.

If the Brits give up Trident, we'll be equally as vulnerable - On your bike Sturgeon and Corbyn!

Greece maybe.

+ I find nothing "interesting" in those videos of ukrainians fighting. it's just childish and dumb. I can find way dumber videos of things done by Bulgarian politicians including: failed assasination attempt, Bulgarian PM knocking down a midget ("jokingly"), or the leader of a far right party attacking a Mosque and beating prayers. But I can't see how this is "interesting".

Honourable mentions:

Hungary, France.
