Go Vote Campaign!
You won't believe this.
I didn't believe it either at first....
I was asked by a good friend to do some sort of narration for some organization (I suspect is funded by the LDP - Not sure) to make a commercial narration for people to go out and vote today (Dec. 14, 2014) in the Japan General Election.
I didn't tell them that I was an anarchist and that I do not condone voting.
Why? Well, I thought it was quite jaw-dropping that; 1) I am a foreigner in Japan and, as such, have no right to vote anyway so it's weird that I would be asked and then, telling people to go out and vote (isn't it?) and, 2) Like I said, I am an anarchist so I don't believe that voting changes anything and it is a waste of time.
I saw famous inventor and genius, Dr. Nakamatsu campaigning in front of Futakotamagawa station the other day. I'd vote for him (or some of the hot babes running) any day...
I mean, if I voted; which I don't.
Like Mark Twain said, "If voting could change anything, it would be illegal."
So, I did the narration anyway, just to be able to say, someday, that "I am one of the few foreigners in Japan who (sort of) helped Shinzo Abe get re-elected."
Regular readers of this blog will know what I think of Shinzo (or any of the rest of them!)
So. I did it. I made the commercial. I write this down now because I don't want any skeletons in my closet. I have no idea where this is being broadcast, but was sent a Youtube link a few hours ago.
Here it is. Please watch on Youtube and give it a "Thumbs Up" if you like it!...
It was fun recording this, though. The people who are making these announcements are good folks with good intentions.
Dear Mother-of-all-that-is-gravy, please forgive me for what I've done!
It doesn't matter anyway... Abe will get re elected and continue to ruin this country and her currency with his insane "Abenomics.".
