Given the allegations of voter harassment, the charges of fraud and irregularity at the polls, and now the harsher ID laws for voting (which I do NOT
agree with), I think it's only "tit for tat" that the US is in trouble with other nations over election policies.
WE are part of the UN watchdogs at voting in Afghanistan, Iran, and many other countries. So we have no right to say "oh, your elections are
fraudulent if you run them this way, but WE can run our elections like that and it's okay. Because we're big and powerful."
Nope. We need to clean up this mess that the Founding Fathers left for us. Of course, their problem was that they didn't trust the common man to be
able to make good decisions, which is why we're stuck with the Electoral college. Hopefully that system (and the inept caucus system) will be coming
down for good within the next two election cycles. I think Ron Paul is proving a very good case for its being not very useful and not very fair.
