[Since U.S. democracy reached its illogical conclusion by raising the grossly unpopular, the grotesquely inept Donald Trump to its highest office, History has been forgotten (if it were ever known), Reason become sinister (like Science), and Decency a sign of weakness. The eight-year mini-Renaissance in Democratic-Style reformist governing that were the Obama mandates, have not just slipped in perdition, but are now even effectively used as reason for punishing the American public.
The Democratic axioms of Maximum suffrage, one-person-one-vote, and rigorous Secularism, have been reduced to bullet points in the enemy's propaganda. Its long-standing, essentially anti-Democratic spirit has left the U.S. in a bipartisan war against the very idea of Popular government, and 'Liberal Democracy', represented by a black Social Organizer, has become the enemy of the 'Free Market, Greed is Good, Business Model', represented by a failed (in every way) Carny and short-eyed stink hole.
To explain the unspeakable, the unthinkable, the sub-mental intelligentsia has decided Russia 'interfered' with the 2016 election; Russia is responsible for the sack or fetid meat that is Donald Trump; and Russia is once again and forever the enemy of that anti-Communist--yet now beyond Fascist--U.S.A., white with foam.
But in a head-to-head match--even spotting the U.S. 3 strokes a hole and the use of the bitches' tee--Putin and Russia's version of Democracy make the U.S. look like the cheating short-hitters they are. Here's how Democratic Elections really work--or worked ten years ago.--mc]
