Who Gets Your Vote?

These are the posters for the candidates of our district for the national parliamentary election.

Everyone is wondering if the Democratic Party will finally oust the Liberal Democratic Party, who have governed Japan almost continuously since 1955.

I took this photo the day after these were posted, and already someone has starting drawing on the candidates faces. They're probably going to get even more artistic in time. Which ever party ends up winning, somethings never change.

Record unemployment levels may encourage a change in "leadership", but just as in the US, the game is rigged and change is constrained by memeplexes and power institutions that don't change with elections. *sigh*
