If half the country thinks the other half to be idiots and therefore a danger if elected, how long is it before elections are effectively done away with?
Is Russia better off with Putin rigging the election? Would/do his people WANT him to rig the election rather than trusting themselves to honestly and fairly decide?
Is it naive to think it always best to let average citizens decide their fate?
And is it not quite natural for the elected in this country (or any free country) to LEAN away from giving “power to the people”? Do not all politicians quietly seek to mute the voice of “the common man” in favor of the elite (them)?
Is not a Putin “election” what ALL politicians secretly dream of and quietly work towards?
It all re-downs to whether a country trusts its fellow-citizens. After all, only idiots would elect Nixon and Reagan and Bush and Bush. Likewise, only idiots would elect Carter and Clinton and . . . Clinton. Obviously we can’t trust our elections and the fools voting.
