An American Dictatorship
Free and Fair Elections
The United States like to say that all countries would be better if they had free and fair elections on a regular basis.
They will put extraordinary pressure on those countries that they feel do not allow their people true democracy, to change their ways. These countries are usually dictatorships.
The countries that are dictatorships but do not get pressured by the US are countries where the dictator usually favors the US in matters of trade, votes with them in the United Nations and supports them in the ridiculing of others.
- Who are the Leaders?
Are there a group of powerful people that really rule? They control the politicians and all their actions. They consider themselves Demi- Gods and beyond the law.
If the US were really interested in everybody having free and fair elections, then they should start by changing their own ways.
True, every American gets to vote in the Presidential Elections but what of the whole process?
I speak now of the Primary run offs. Why can’t all the States vote on the same day?
By stretching out these run offs, it gives a distinct advantage to the wealthy. They can back and finance the candidates they want to the point that any others have to drop out.
A free and fair election does not allow for any bias or prejudice. The run offs though, are always bias towards the wealthy, making them prejudice towards the poor.
Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a system is only as fair as its weakest point. Therefore if the run offs are unfair in the deciding of which candidates are to run in a Presidential Election, then the whole Presidential Election is unfair.
When an election process favors one minority, it is unfair. When the elections always favor the same minority, then it is a dictatorship. Welcome to the United States dictatorship.
Therefore the only difference between the US and other dictatorships is that with the others, we see the faces and know the names of the dictators. In the US the dictators hide behind “front men” or “face men”.
These “front men” are the politicians.
The dictators allow the front men to squabble and fight, on how they will dress up and distribute the scrapes. Providing of course that the politicians, have already ensured that the top table, is filled to the brim with only the best. The front men [or politicians] do this in the hope that one day, they too will be invited to that same top table.
We have all oohed and aaahed at the extravagances of these foreign dictators and felt in awe at the amounts of money they have been able to siphon from their people to private offshore banks.
These countries were all relatively poor though, compared to the US. Imagine how much could have been siphoned off by the American dictators.
Could it perhaps add up to the same amount as the US deficit?
- 0.1% Democracy
Is the US democracy all it claims? Is it really the way forward or has it led the United States to enter its own Dark Age?
- Is Democracy, Hypocrisy?
Democracy is supposed to be good, but with more people refusing to vote, has it become hypocrisy. Is there a better way?
- Are the Elections Just a Diversion?
Just because there is an election going on doesn't mean the world has stopped. Why have the media stopped reporting what is going on? Is the answer more sinister than you think?
- The Death of Democracy
Why did the US help to stop a referendum in Greece? Can this mark the end to democracy?
- American Truth
The politicians would have us believe the American people are still doing good. What is the truth that they do know but do not want the people to know.
