Politicians do not respect real democracy. Right across the globe sitting presidents and ruling parties are not honoring peoples' rights. They are twisting the rules to suit themselves. Executives voted out still hang onto power. Governments ignore referendums and do what they want. A presidents gets a Nobel Prize for doing this. The whole world is becoming corrupt. | place governments not. |
Rulers are not democratic even in democracies
Gerrymandering is common in many countries with 'bent' electorate boundary lines being in place since WWII. Fiddling with boundaries goes on constantly. The governing Coalition in South Australia is doing it again by shifting nearly half a million voters into other electorates, making a win a certainty for them at the next state ballot. Democratic belief assumes roughly the same number of votes in each constituency. The SA government is actually worsening this "fair" system. | not. |

Taking over the national media is commonplace now in some lands. They even put opposition members in prison so they cannot stand in an election. No only that, but stupid people are being elected, sometimes with the help of hacking from a country that is the most bitter: the leader elect actually kisses the butt of the foreign authoritarian who directed the hack. Hating the guts of the second most dangerous enemy, the world's largest nation, does not bode well for future peace from the new erratic show/biz

There are clearly bad times ahead. More nations are at war today than ever. When a bankrupt country hits its taxpayers hard in order to bomb the s..t out of innocent citizens to give a renegade part of a city back to a twerpy tyrant, we all need to head back to the caves. Oh, we cannot get into caves because they are filled with "terrorists"? And there are no woods left to move to. | ◆ not ◆ . |

We will have to stay where we are and hope death comes quickly and cleanly!

Dictator Abbott?

By bringing back Dames and Knights is Abbott acting like Putin. The comparison can be made. Neither consulted his immediate political advisors before they acted. This is reminiscent of Kevin Rudd before he was shown the door. It could also be said about John Howard before he ignominiously lost his safe Liberal seat when he lost his last election.

Total power totally corrupts and Tony Abbott is acting as if he holds all the power. Of course, the Senate is controlled by Labor, the Greens and Independents at the moment, so he cannot do everything he wishes. It also seems certain that he will not fully control the Senate when the newly elected Senators take their seats. The worry is the leader and cabinet can do many things that do not have to be reviewed by the Senate. That is why they call it the executive. Leaders of some countries have even gone to war when this power has not been given to them in the constitution.

The "knee jerk" behavior of a leader is worrying. One wonders what will be coming next - a ban on gay celebrations? Cabinet is already planning to allow racial abuse by striking out legislation. While Coalition politicians argue that they are making things better, their arguments are on sandy ground. Instead of consistent laws they are making some legislation incompatible with other legislation. The High Court will get even more work to settle arguments over racial vilification.

Let's face it people do not like a dictatorial leader. Consultation with cabinet is expected in a democracy. There are worrying signs across the world of democracy being watered-down. Leaders are seemingly doing just as they please. However, there could be a price to pay. For example, will Putin win the next election if Russia goes into recession due to his shocking behavior?
