The 20 years of election fraud claims prove that even if first-time voters just can't imagine that Baby Boomer pro-Trumpers could possibly be right about anything, the reality is that Santa Claus will not come down your chimney later this month and that the US system of politics and political culture - and not merely their electoral system - is so bad it defies description.

It defies description because we don't even know where to begin, and - spoiler alert - this article will not provide you with the key to fixing it all.

Is the most important is angle to report on this: Do we realise how intolerant the US has become? If your side loses, it's only because the other side cheated; as long as your side wins, who cares what the losers think - they're losers.

Or maybe the most important angle is this: The most common rejoinder I read in the US media about those who dare to defy almighty Facebook and suggest that there was voter fraud in 2020 is that they "don't live in reality". Do the winners of the quadrennial US presidential vote get to define "reality" for everyone else? I guess I didn't realise the US presidential election was so very important. Do they get to define "reality" for non-Americans too?

Or is this the most important angle: Do Americans realise that you can't just "turn off" four years of hysteria any more than you can immediately shift a car from 5th gear to 1st gear? Have you seen the "retribution lists", harassment and intimidation towards those who want to discuss voter fraud in 2020? One must concede that pro-Trumpers didn't stoop to this level, and the even relented on prosecuting "Crooked Hillary". Who knows, maybe the oft-repeated MSM certainty that pro-Trumpers were going to shoot up Main Street will still be proven to have been solid journalism?

I can go on and on giving you ideas which are all worthy of separate columns, but I'll cease and say that I have already relayed the most important angle - one of the absolute top ones, at the very least: Eighty percent of US partisan losers think the last two elections were stolen.

What this means is that the half of Americans who are actually politically active no longer have faith in the integrity of their system, while the other half had none to begin with. This is why at this movement we are observing in the US a mad scramble for power, privilege, political territory and dominance by any means necessary, and which is all-too-happy to ride roughshod over people, history, ideals, notions of fair play and integrity.

Let's recall that this is exactly how Americans created the state of Oklahoma, to give one example of US political culture, so what has really changed here? If you get to the top of the US mountain before anyone else, just as an "Oklahoma sooner" got his or her land when the territory was opened up to White colonists, who and what you stepped on doesn't matter.

Now that their frontiers have closed and it's no longer a unipolar world Americans are forced to look only inward and they're finding that the US electoral system is awful and fraudulent, and that's because it is from a culture which is entirely based around imperialism and capitalism.
