    Default US Elections Ranked Worst Among Western Democracies; Here's Why

    And they wonder why so many people just quit voting......

    The world is currently transfixed by the spectacle of American elections.

    From New York, London and Paris to Beijing, Moscow, and Sydney there is endless heated debate in the news media and across dinner tables about the factors fueling the remarkable success of Donald Trump, speculation about a brokered convention shattering the old GOP, and the most likely outcome of a polarizing Trump-Clinton battle in the fall.

    This contest matters. It is the election for the most powerful leader in the Western world, and some -- like the Economist Intelligence Unit -- regard Donald Trump as a major risk to global prosperity and stability. Also, as citizens of one of the world's oldest democracies, Americans like to think that the United States provides an influential role model for how elections should run in other countries.

    The Republican party has had a record number of voters so far this year. If they don't like our elections, so what? They only like us when they need something.

    My complaint is that our politicians are bought and paid for by big money. I am sure it is amusing to others.

    Just wait and see how many "republicans" stay the course if the Elite get there way and block Trump from the nomination.. There are already petitions on the internet to tell the elite that if Trump has the most delegates and they give the nomination to another they will leave the republican party.. myself included.. This is also going on in the Democratic party with their "SUPER" delegate Bull sh*t.. Elections are for so long being controlled by Corporate America and now is the time to stop it..
