Well done, you've completely missed my point.
Suppose it did turn out that despite the entire world voting, we ended up with a guy who to all intents and purposes is an idiot (not that such things
don't happen already), what would happen then?
Well, presumably the idiot won't be holding another election, so we'd be left with someone who the world hadn't voted in as American president for
Don't you get it?
The elite have power over Americans
, because they are the American
Elite, as such, they do not have anywhere near as much power in the
rest of the world as they do in America.
Although of course they do possess the power to influence us financially, but that's a different point.
My point is that if American power isn't enough to deal with the problem, i'm all in favour of upping the stakes so we can add to the power that is
already working to wrench America from the grasp of the elite.
