“Democracy is when people vote the way I tell them to”

A political joke is that “democracy works” when one’s side wins. “Democracy is when people vote the way I want them to (vote)” is a saying.

Youngkin was able to feed vile lies directly to his base through a right-wing media machine that ceaselessly amplified his garbage. How can democracy survive this?

If Hungary really votes overwhelmingly against democracy and for corruption I cannot see why it should be accepted in the EU. Kick it out! twitter.com/euobs/status/1…

RIP Hungarian democracy.
They voted for the guy who took positions favored by the public in his country instead of those supported by the State Dep and international NGOs.
We’re going to need to step up and fund more political science. Someone will have to track the decline.

Every demographic has its self-hating element. They think that if they cozy up to the oppressor, they’ll get better treatment. They don’t recognize that they’re being exploited.

“Democracy is when people vote the way you want them to vote, I guess.”  And they do.  It’s why the house flipped.

I took the School Voucher poll down because look what happens when out of state special interests start meddling… The truth is the School Vouchers bill is being pushed through, not because the majority of Iowans want it but because Out-of-State Special Interests!!!
