U.S. Electile Dysfunction--A Tyranny of the Minority
When is 2016 equal to 1984? In what Universe does a losing candidate who receives 2 million votes less than his opponent, become the declared WINNER of an election? Is this the New Math of the Failed State of Trumpistan? By contrast, in the 2014 Syrian election, when President Bashar Assad received 9 million more votes than his opponent, Washington--as a totally illegitimate outside agitator--had the "audacity" to insist that "Assad must go!" And the CIA started shipping lethal weapons to the anti-Assad jihadist forces to utterly destroy yet another heretofore functioning midEast society. Are we living in the world of Ripley's Believe It or Not?
For the 2nd time in less than a generation, the self-proclaimed "leading democracy of the Free World" has selected a LOSER of its national election, to be the Commander-in-Chief. If this happened in any other country, than the "exceptional"--or deviant, in more conventional logic--nation of America, the mainstream Corporate-bin-Laden media would have screamed Bloody Murder. Crippling economic sanctions would have been railroaded thru the UN to strangle the lifeline of that nation's populace. NATO powers would quickly impose No Fly Zones on the country that dared to select a losing candidate to be its national leader. Perhaps even "humanitarian interventions" by Western military forces would have been launched to "rescue" its people from such a Tyranny of the Minority!
But has that been the behavior of the Mainstream Media and on Wall Street since November 8? NOT!
Instead, entire Corporate-bin-Laden media has been preaching for a peaceful transition to the Trump presidency. My goodness, even George Orwell could not have imagined this Ultimate Insanity?
