So, listening to the US Election results coming in, you do start to wonder how much the "Reality TV" impact on politics. Now I don't believe anything like The Purge could happen, but it certainly shows how turning politics into a Game Show where only winning matters is a scary prospect and where it's only cheating if you get caught (though of course, the OTHER side cheats all the time so MY side cheating is just "evening up the score").
Also, as a non-American it amazes me how the religious Right can rally round a multiple divorcee purely because his opponent is Pro-Choice (I don't think Trump has made any clear anti-abortion statements to justify that support). Now it's not quite like endorsing a night of murder, but it is a perhaps an indication of the way things could go (give it a couple of decades...).

Leon has since tweeted that (paraphrased) if you think some of the roughly 200 renegade cuts so far have been political, expect the next 200 to be even more so.
Curious thing is that this episode was released almost at the same time as Wisecrack published their "Philosophy of The Purge" video. It touches on very similar ideas and use many of the same scenes Leon used to illustrate his point.

I remember the television advertisements for the Purge: Election Year had "Keep... America... Great" blasted across images of insane-looking killers in macabre-looking American iconography, which was pretty ballsy on there part to make it so explicit. Made me laugh every time i saw it.

EsADeo: I don't know whether to post this in the forums for Season 2, 3 or 4, but technically I think Joan got what she wanted. An incredibly long time after she died, but still.
