    Land of the free? New reports shows the US ranks dead last in electoral integrity

    "According to the EIP, U.S. elections scored lower than Argentina, South Africa, Tunisia, and Rwanda — and strikingly lower than even Brazil. Specifically compared to Western democracies, U.S. elections scored the lowest, slightly worse than the U.K., while Denmark and Finland topped the list."

    We are no longer the land of the free. The US is becoming more like Russia, an oligarchy where it is government of the super rich, by the super rich, for the super rich. Horribly sad but true.icon_sad.gif


    How the goddamned hell could the hapless Hillary ho win the Wyoming democratic primary when she earned only 44% of the votes against the 56% of the votes earned by Bernie. The democratic party definitely needs major oversight by the federal courts and the DNC needs to be put under investigation because there is a lot wrong with the democratic party. No wonder I might leave the democratsicon_mad.gif
