With more than 25 million volunteers like me Narenra modi led BJP win




TextOpposition candidate Narendra Modi thundered to victory on Friday in India's election, with partial results showing that the pro-business Hindu nationalist and his party trounced the ruling Nehru-Gandhi dynasty in a seismic political shift. Modi's landslide, the most resounding election victory India has seen in 30 years, was welcomed with a blistering rally on India's stock markets and raucous celebrations at offices across the country of his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), where supporters danced, exploded fireworks and gave out sweets.

Uh Indias beef is with Pakstan and more so with China. The US and India are friendly although not allies. Although Modi the current winner has been banned from the US since 2005 a Bush policy Obama continued but, now ended. Modi does have have very close ties with Japan though and is working with them to contain China. With this being the case we can expect that to lead to closer India US ties.

In case anyone was curious:

There were 814.5 million eligible voters and the average voter turnout was 66.38%. That's 540.7 million people that voted! The entire population of the USA is ~330 million.

Great job India!

Fingers crossed that the people of India will continue to have their voices heard. It is but a step in the right direction, and with continued resolve the people can govern themselves.

The point is, Modi pulled more votes than the six referenced world leaders *combined,* so Modi is the true leader of the free world.

Yeah, was apparently not as good a joke as I thought when I typed it lol. Not a huge fan of democracy myself, I prefer a republic. Every form of government has their flaws though, I have not found perfection yet. Although tribal and local government can be good, it can also be terrible. I guess it helps to live in a good area.

The best form of government is a totalitarian dictatorship. It just so happens to also be capable of being the worst.
