How funny that the US spends billions of dollars lecturing the rest of the world on the "democratic process" but its own elections are among the most anti-democratic and crooked on earth. The US electoral process is so disgusting even the mainstream media have taken notice. Americans who do not believe the rest of the world bristles under the hypocrisy are only deluding themselves.
Click here for an excellent bill of particulars titled "How the GOP stole the nomination," a detailed summary of how the US media and the establishment parties conspire to deny anything resembling the democratic process in US elections. It is too tempting to paste in the entire article here — it is that good. Please indulge me this one lengthy excerpt, but READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE:
"After an entire election season of rules breaking in almost every state by so-called GOP “officials” and mainstream media manipulation of the process, many expected GOP establishment shenanigans at the RNC. But to watch them play out the way they did during Tuesday thru Thursday's proceedings fully cemented the reality that the establishment, regardless of whether Democrat or Republican, despite the people's wishes, will literally do anything they wish to insure the current "bankster" establishment structure stronghold, even to the detriment of the people.
"State by state, since even prior to January's Iowa Caucus, the GOP establishment, in conjunction with the establishment's “mainstream” media, did everything in their power to fool the electorate into believing falsehoods during the entire process.
"All over the country Ron Paul was winning the majority of the polls in 2011, leading up to the election season, but the media ignored the results and continued to pretend Ron Paul was a non-factor. Even openly ridiculing his political philosophies as “fringe, kooky or crazy,” as if the “news” was no longer expected to be an unbiased source of honest information. Members of the media would start rumors and establishment politicians would even stoop so low as to claim that if Paul should happen to win Iowa people should look to the second and third place finishers instead. If Paul should happen to win anything, they claimed, it would discredit that poll or caucus. Talk even emerged stating that Iowa should be reconsidered as the “First in the Nation” caucus, simply because Paul was the favorite to win. “Both” sides of the so-called two-party news machine were equally to blame as the dumbed-down American constituency joyfully played along as if 3rd grade childish political tactics are the norm and excepted behavior. Unfortunately, that just may be the case."
