Last topic was about The President and Science.
I wrote that, in Japan, US Presidential Election was also in discussion.
Compared with American, Japanese don't pay so much time to discuss candidates' policies.
It doesn't mean that we have no concern about the social programs, public assistance, or the rising cost of raising children.
It might result of the indirect election of our prime ministers.
Because we can't vote candidates directly, they don't need to appeal their policies to the public.
Therefore, they tend to win not because of their policies but the connection with other politicians.
I think it's the disadvantage of indirect elections.
