With the country having the worst healthcare in the developed world, the United Kingdom has opted to make their healthcare system more "democratic" by giving the people direct control over healthcare decisions--quite literally!

With both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump scoring historic unfavorable ratings among potential voters, the U.S. government plans on converting voting booths into suicide booths as to allow voters to taste the sweet release of death rather than live four to eight years under either candidate’s presidency.

When voters enter these combination booths this November, they will be given the option of voting for either Clinton or Trump, or for committing suicide. If voters choose suicide, they will meet their ultimate demise right there and then, with the added option of selecting a death that is “quick and painless” or “slow and horrible.”
