I read this last week and was stunned: the US “rated lower than any other long-established democracies and affluent societies” when elections were analyzed between 2012 and 2018. This was determined not by some right leaning think tank, but the 2019 Electoral Integrity Project at Harvard. Harvard! Think about that folks. And 2020 was no doubt far worse, so don’t tell me about the lack of fraud and corruption. The leftists are right: we are a Banana Republic but it has nothing to do with last week’s DC riot. Actually it does: the protest is BECAUSE we are a Banana Republic. This as an embarrassment. It has become so bad that even some liberals are calling for investigations and changes. When trust is lost in a country’s elections, it is over. The far-left, our laughingstock of an education system, and the corrupt US media are responsible.
