But the US elections are pure as snow I guess... unless you get the endorsement of one of the two political parties in the US... democrat or republican, you have zero chance of becoming president... if you have no money supporting you you have no chance of being president... the point is that the elections of the candidates within each political party can be rigged and openly exposed as being rigged and nothing happens.
Even when they get into power big business openly make demands based on the money they donated... give the winning candidate a million dollars and you get to pick which country you can be ambassador for... nothing at all to do with democracy and it doesn't matter what skills you have in diplomacy as shown by previous US ambassadors to various countries... the one in Germany is very popular with the locals as he tells they what they should or should not do like the colonial master he is.
Besides are you stupid or not... I realise you are not a total expert in English, but democracy is an ancient word that means what we tell you it means, and if the bribery and corruption comes from the UK, the US, or the land of the Juice... then that is what democracy is by definition and you owe those countries a lot for saving you from the embarrassment of voting for someone they don't approve of.... you stupid savages.
Their brown or yellow or whatever colour skin make them stupid or good at sports or something and so we with our superior white skin and therefore also more civilised brain need to tell them who they should have running their country in our best interests... it saves them from being bombed and sanctioned.
Look at Iraq... they voted in who they wanted so we had to kill a lot of them... same in Yemen... same in Syria and Libya... the people they voted in got in our way of stripping their countries of resources... and they didn't buy our weapons either so they are war criminals and terrorists... unlike saudi arabia who are in the process of murdering millions of Yemeni people either directly or via famine and the blockade they have on the country... not to mention dismembering and THEN killing one of their own citizens working for the Washington Post newspaper... those sick fucks... you can bet your ass somewhere there is a video... hollywood quality of that doing the rounds in Saudi Arabia... they loved the videos from Chechnia of the rebels murdering Russian soldiers by beheading... they got good money from the Saudis for that... they love that sick shit... they said it was a 14 man hit team... so probably 5 to actually kill him and probably another 4 to clean up the mess, so that means a 5 man film crew... probably three cameras and a sound man and a director... some of the clean up guys probably wiped any blood off the camera lenses so they could see what was happening.... they probably filmed it in 3D.
But no... you think India is bad because their politicians can be bought... my question would be whose can't?
Unlike Russia, China incidents of vote rigging is very common in poor, third world corrupt states like India.
But the west monitors those elections to ensure they are free and fair... you know the only places with corruption are places that wont take their money...
The West supports despots across the world especially in Africa and Asia. They are doing the same in India by appointing a puppet government that takes orders from US, UK and Israel. Ergo, Russia needs to be very careful while dealing with India.
If Russia backs off from India, the west will push right in there... for most corrupt and backward countries around the world their best chance at a decent future is with Russia and China... but even they are not perfect and their might be corruption and problems down the line but nothing like the institutionalised BS from the west.
If you take a newborn baby from any developing country and put it in a safe loving Russian family environment that child will grow up and act like any white Russian... except their looks and skin colour might be different, they will learn to speak Russian like anyone else there, and they will learn its culture and ethics and mannerisms and characteristics.
If you take a white Russian baby and put him with some Brazilian rainforest natives, the child will learn the local language and learn the culture and ethics and mannerisms and characteristics of the local tribe.
This suggests that there is little difference between different peoples and that the third world shouldn't still be the third world... they should have developed the way the west developed... though not necessarily taking the same path... even though the west thinks the one they took is the correct and only way... it is not.
The destination also does not have to be the same.
They talk about tolerance and rights, but even today they are selective... 50 years ago you could not get away with defending homosexuality on TV in the US... 150 years ago you could not get away with defending rights for non white people in the US... or women for that matter.
They will tell you they are more civilised now and women and gays and people who don't know what gender they are have equal rights... but actually they have more rights... you can't abuse someone who is gay or who is a women or is not sure... that is now illegal.
There was a Dire Straits song called "Money for nothing", which is about rock stars getting money for nothing... it is OK because they are calling themselves faggots from the perspective of ordinary working people... ie the lyrics include something along the lines of "that little faggot got his own jet airplane... that little faggot he's a millionaire..."
But you can abuse some groups you can't abuse people because of their gender, you can't abuse jews... it seems you can offend christians, but you can't offend muslims now, but if you want you can say anything you like about Russians as long as it is bad and hints at their evil nature.
I find it ironic that former British colony America now wants to be friends to former British colony India.
And you missed the point of this comment... America does not have friends... it has interests... and its interests is stifling the development of Russia and China and also of selling products... so if it is trying to hurt China then it can't turn its back on 1.2 billion Indians as well.
The US could care less about democracy or free and fair elections... it doesn't even have any of its own.
The funny thing is all these new laws they have created to try to catch Russia and Russians can easily be used against the countries that actually interfere in US elections like Israel and the UK and the Ukraine...
