America's Sham Electoral Process
It's well known or should be that America's system is fraudulent.
by Stephen Lendman
It's bad enough to make some despots blush. It doesn't rise to the level of good fiction. No respectable film producer would accept a script explaining it. Who'd believe a democratic system so implausible. It's more fanciful than real.
Longstanding electoral fraud alone subverts democracy in America. The entire process lacks legitimacy.
Most democracies have proportionally representative (PR) governance. America's winner-take-all system lacks credibility. It's borderline lawless.
PR represents all voters and all political parties or groups proportionally to their electoral strength. Thus, if candidates from one party win 30% of the votes, they get 30% of legislative seats. Not in America. Here, 50.1% takes all.
The Electoral College constitutes another systemic flaw. It's fundamentally undemocratic. Bush v. Gore stands out. Winning the popular vote doesn't matter.
