It's more to do with the Western idea of democracy and not geographical location, I refer you to this: A democratic country forcing their ways on another country is not democratic at all I would also suggest that China and Russia probably have more interest here than usual because the US are trying to install their puppet dictator, something akin to a


Excuse me if I prefer the western idea of democracy to that of the likes of China and/or Russia.

Hahahahahaha. What about Venezuela jailing political opponents, preventing competing political parties from participating, and rigging elections. Don't like Maduro and you protest ... oops, jail, torture, and you can't run for election now.

So much Democracy.

It seems corruption and mismanagement can occur within any type of political party and that is what is happening here.



Corruption threatens to prevent economic development and prevents political stability. The term itself implies the use of public office for private gain. There are also examples from the developing countries of corrupt income running to billions of dollars by their rulers, like Mobutu in Zaire, Marcos in the Philippines, Mubarak in Egypt and Nawaz Sharief in Pakistan (Siddiqui, 2013). However, in recent decades there have been mass movements against government corruption in several developing countries such as Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Tunisia, Congo and the Philippines, which have resulted in governments being toppled; unfortunately, contrary to expectations, such external intervention did not appear to have much effect on corruption in these countries.

Well, at least I am free to have my opinion. Unlike the poor buggers living under Maduro's regime.

That is why the US has so many checks and balances. It's also why the Democrats are trying to get rid of them.

I don't see any military helping them, so it looks like they may not get very far. EDIT: So those few men that are the coup's military force? Sad.

Example. The doing away with the electoral college. One of the key checks and balances protecting US Democracy. Who wants to do away with that?

Get rid of checks and balances and have a Socialist Utopia .. like Venezuela, where political parties are assaulted by the abuse of power of the government. I wonder what party in America has recently weaponized the power of the government to go after political opponents ....

The people are cheering hard pouring out by the thousands. Should not be long before paramilitaries form in the rural areas along the borders of Brazil and Colombia.

There are other ways of doing things. I think voting should be the ranked voting system.
