I thought I should remind the pillars of democracy

USA, of course, how democracy is supposed to work.
Australian elections yesterday. The government was defeated, and the outgoing leader politely and graciously conceded defeat.
Did we see that in the bastion of democracy, the sheriff of democracy in 2020?
Did we see any assertions of ballot fraud, ballot box stuffing?
Not on your Nellie!

Clearly not. What we saw was nothing but a blatant coup. I wouldn't say that Donald dump is representative of US politicians, however, even though several established republicans came out in support of his coup (as unbelievable as that may sound). Thank God, Mike Pence was true to the constitution of the land.

The most unbelievable thing yet is that many republican fan boys are still refusing to condemn his actions and some of them are still sitting in the senat of the world's leading democracy! Is this the first step towards American totalitarianism? I sure hope not.

Think you know $0 much about Amerika the bytch.

Amerika is a place where Animators created a mythical "white" cartoon Dad-- who by the 3rd.

That's such a lame argument really. Tell me, why are you supposed to know more than anybody else about the US?
It's curious that I have never or perhaps seldom seen the word megalomaniac used here - but surely that is the right word. Grace? Totally absent. In our minor version of democracy the defeated bows out and the victor assumes control. In US version the corrupt defeated before the event raves about corruption and cheating, then attempts a coup d'etat. 18 months later it is still so, and a large number of Americans swallow the crazy bait. Something is amiss in that society, methinks!
@ab well that was a spectactularly incoherent rant, wasn't it? no idea what you were trying to say. The thread is comparing the handover of government in USA 2020-2021 with that in Australia 2022. Stick to the point if you understand it, otherwise refrain.

I think the Americans need a 3rd party for starters.
I wish Trump would have started that together with Tulsi.
It could be economically supported by Elon the freedom loving genius.

Thi blog is about Australia? Who'd have thought.
The Big 2020 Steal. The Lie was conceived after losses in the 2018 mid term.

An obscure Texas security company helped persuade many Americans that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.

At meetings beginning late in 2018, as Republicans were smarting from midterm losses in Texas and across the country, Russell Ramsland and his associates delivered alarming presentations on electronic voting to a procession of conservative lawmakers, activists and donors.

Ramsland, a former congressional candidate with a Harvard University MBA, pitched a claim that seemed rooted in evidence: Voting-machine audit logs - lines of codes and time stamps that document the machines’ activities - contained indications of vote manipulation. In the retrofitted hangar that served as his company’s offices at the edge of a municipal airstrip outside Dallas, Ramsland attempted to persuade Republican candidates to challenge their election results and force the release of additional data that might prove manipulation.

The plan would have been developed over time. Trump predicted the fraud
@lj well no of course not, it is not about Australia but about the staggering distance American polarisation has achieved from other Western nations. Yet at the same time the Australian elections demonstrate how a two-party system of democracy is disintegrating under the weight of public rejection. If you don't comprehend I am not surprised, since you are mired down in the two-party system.
@lj well no it is not about Australia - instead it is a direct potshot at the American system, as the blog explicitly states. Perhaps you read shallowly too - leave it to you to work out the grammar of this 'too'
Pleeez.... Amerika has a 3rd, 4th, 5th party...

Swamie, you trying to swimmy this blog full of crazy T-rex45 propagandista? laugh
How you think Fargo will feel abut that when he wake up? lol

Dunn worry thu, ofcourse I will join the club when it opens up,
in a town near me. cheers
in a republic, every state counts.
it's still a democracy. when legally applied and upheld, the electorals of each state follow their majority. 270 is considered the winning number.

for every thing else, there's mass mail in voting where nothing is verified, laws illegally changed or modified, and "judges" refuse to hear the cases as audits are fought against instead of for, to prove a working system. that was 2020 in the u.s.

the pillars of one's ides of democracy have to first be verified and proven as the people request. otherwwie, it's never going to be any type of democracy. a continual dictatorship at the least where the people don't matter. like the u.s. current since 2020.
@teddy wee? I thought that was just Scottish and NZ!
I use it occasionally but consciously thinking 'too many years in NZ'
Indeed. I suppose it's because of too many years in Scotland, in my case. laugh
Good morning to everyone except the Washington D.C. sewer.
