1. Many of my friends have commented they cannot discuss politics with co-workers, family, friends and others without conflict rearing its ugly head. Do you feel you can talk with your family and friends about this particularly divisive election?

Well, in the first place...I'm not american, so the upcoming elections are a non-issue for me.
As an outsider I worry about the growing intolerance among people, the growing egoism, the growing "need" people feel to force their own opinions upon others, the lack of care and compassion for others, etc etc.
I see that in certain groups in american politics too. The way they're talking politics show they don't care who they hurt and they don't care to share their wealth with others who have less.
Some people seem to have lost all decency where politics is concerned.

I can only hope that they won't win, but I fear the worst, because it will cause the downfall of america.

Pity is they don't understand economics, international connections and other things not enough not to blame Obama.

Ofcourse I will get ugly comments on this, showing the intellectual development of the commenters.
Which underlines the reason of the question I'm answering here.

In my own country I can discuss my political views and express them freely without people falling all over me, getting ugly, blaming me for all that went wrong the last 50 years, etc etc.
Even though I don't like the changes in the political arena in my own country at all, we have freedom of speech, and it allows me to speak freely and not to be accused and approached the way democrats in america are.

2. Do you know who you're voting for in next week's election? How did you decide?

Yes, I would vote for tghe democrats.
Obama has done a lot of good for the country, for international relationships and peace. I know many americans don't agree. But they're not able to see it from my perspective. History will teach them in due time. I bet it'll be too late for them to acknowledge it.

3. What do you think is the most important issue in next Tuesday's election?


4. Can you go a day without laughing?


5. Do you think that you can chose who you want to love?

No, one can chose not to take action on the feelings, though.

6. Have you ever been on stage? For what?

Half of my life.
Ballet, theatre.

7. Would you ever live in a different country? If yes, where?

Yep. UK. Preferably Scotland to give those few scottish genes a bit of rest.

8. Any plans for Halloween?

In this country halloween isn't a tradition.
But we respect samhain.

9. The last costume that you wore, what was it and why did you choose it?

Oh dear...I can't even remember it.
