  • Most Americans didn't vote in 2016. What can convince them if not the general dissolution of the entire world politic? How about a cleanly designed app that pays you money? Hopefully it's that, because that's what we made for you. Download the game here: https://sambee.app.link/IiRmXbZQ9P

    Voting is extremely important but at the same time highly illogical for any individual to make the effort. The odds of any one voter's vote being decisive is outrageously remote in a large scale election with more than a few hundred voters. Australia's Founding Fathers realised this so voting is compulsory and if you fail to show up you get fined. For some reason failing to vote in a state election here in New South Wales (fine of A$55 ~US$40) is more expensive than failing to vote in a federal election (A$20 ~US$15). Also all our elections must occur on a Saturday. We're still baffled US elections are held on a weekday.
    However, we don't elect our judges or police chiefs(I guess you'd call them sheriffs) so we have far fewer elections we have to pay attention to. The plus side is we don't get judges who base their decisions on whether they will look good on a TV ad but we do have the potential for shockingly bad judges sitting on the bench waiting to retire and no one is incentivised to boot them out. I'm not sure how big a problem this really is but it has been satirised so I'm guessing it's not unheard of.

    Had to delete your game. Maybe after you have worked out the bugs then I’ll re-download it.

    Cenk Uyugur from The Young Turks (TYT) also correctly predicted Trump's win on an ABC panel hosted by George Stephanopolous. In fact he almost exactly got right the electoral college vote split between Hillary and Trump. But given her open disdain for Bernie and his supporters (and myopic support for Hillary), I guess Sam Bee and her show wouldn't acknowledge that :)

    Could have avoided the orange wave if HRC had just paid attention to the people for once.
