Iranian Elections

iran election

A populace fed up with an extreme right administration out of touch with the wishes of the people in general and the young in particular, an administration that has undermined diplomatic relations for years. Polls favoring a moderate from among a surprisingly diverse selection of candidates, as the public rallies around the candidate they feel has the best chance of winning and thus bringing at least some change, any change in direction. Massive increases in voter turnout as the public dares to hope that their lives could be improved by voting, hope mixed with the fear that the vilification of the opposition during the campaign may be followed up with threats of violence if the reform candidate wins, or that the promised reforms will never actually materialize.

I can totally relate.
