Quite. Add to this the fact that there's a grand choice of two pre-selected establishment-people to vote for (with any efficacy) and you have to come to the conclusion that the elections in our countries are not democratic in the proper sense of the word.
"Blatantly rigged" might be a better term.
Nancy's post just highlights how deeply some people can delude themselves on the subject. I mean, it's not as if the state of our electoral system is any secret. We're not talking conspiracy theory here, we're talking simple, verifiable, commonly known fact.
