Modern Democracy thanks to our sad example
We set the new standard of do what you have to in order to get what you want and when you're caught lie and scream as loudly as possible as we see displayed daily right here and it is disgusting.
Candidates allege election fraud in Haiti
Thai Court Clears Democrat Party of Election Fraud in Victory for Abhisit
I know corruption has been around since the beginning of society and man. However, with the advent of George W and his corrupt underhanded Government in what he called an example of Democracy to be exported around the world the corruption and stolen power became the new standard.
Bush used what I coined as 3D politics taught by Karl Rove to achieve their goals. (3D politics = Deceitful, deceptive, divisive politics) It seems in every election in every country now we hear cries of fraud and corruption not just here in the US and more visibly in Iran during the June Presidential election. Why should we expect Afghanistan or anyone else to be any different?
Look at the example we have set for others to follow. I remember the feeling of shame when GW had the audacity to tell China they should aspire to a US style Democracy seeing our own broadcast daily corruption in what many of us believed was no longer a Democracy. Under Bush we became a Democracy in name only and were exporting that not just in the Middle East but around the world.
Stealing elections and corruptions is the standard in the world now. The destruction Bush rained on the US and world balance along with the example he set for the world to follow will affect the entire world for generations if not forever. That is why I can not forget what Bush did and people often tell me to get over it. He made sure he will go down in history!
I am disgusted every time I see a so called free and fair election and it is corrupted for ones personal gain. Haiti and Thailand are just the latest examples. It is worse in Iraq and Afghanistan but a month later and we are still fighting in Alaska and trying to pull the courts in again. This is really sick!
Democracies have become a joke if they weren't before. I can't believe how routinely we see corruption openly displayed while being denied, how often the facade of Democracy is openly and wantonly used to steal power. It has become routine, a joke, embarrassing, and disgusting.
