    We deserve to be ruled by worse people!

    We are fortunate that ours is a democracy, thanks to our great leaders post-independence in 1947. Democracy allows us to select the leader we want and, through him or her, the Government we get.

    Very often, we curse our leaders forgetting that we only elected them! And the elections get repeated, same leaders get selected again and again!

    Pluto, in Republic, said -'He who refuses to rule is liable to be ruled by someone, worse than himself.'

    So dear friends, in the next election in your village, district, state, stand up tall and fight the election and defeat the candidate you think is less capable to rule. If you can't do that, at least go and cast your vote!

    Become the ruler!

    Stop crying!!!! Stop complaining!!!!!

    PLATO, Hariji not Pluto. Democracy works only where peopole are literate and politically aware. Otherwise, it is nothing more than sheep waiting in queue to select their butchers.

    Dear Hari Sir,

    Ruler with an attitude of serving the citizens is something most citizens aspire for. The need for the money to contest in the election results in serving a select few on priority before serving the citizens. A lot of rulers forget that they still need to serve the citizens. We are like the rats in the story of Pied Piper and only listen to the rhetoric and not the actions.

    Dear Shri Balajee,
    Thanks for correction, typo as they say and smell check does not interfere in words with Capital letters.
    Democracy is the only form of Government which can be checked, though not as effectively as needed. Literate surely are politically aware but not necessarily politically active. They don't vote in the same percentage as uneducated and poor do. Another trend I have observed is that these uneducated and poor voters vote in groups as decided by the group leader or mafia. In return they may get some freebees.
    Therefore it is all the more important that literate people vote more and talk less.

    Dear Shri Viswa,
    That is the dilemma. You have might have observed that even municipal councilors' election, there are huge processions and money games. An MLA or MP election crores are spent. Obviously, the winner has to make good of that and collect more for other election. I is a vicious cycle and there seems to be no answer also.

    Like driverless car, technology must help nations to get governed without anyone at helm.
    Briyani Booze Bribe to get voters to vote!
    Helm reminds me of helmet.a manufacturer bribed the concerned ministry to make it compulsory driving two wheelers with helmet on head. Then within few weeks rule was made to drive 2 wheelers without helmet is punishable offence . It helped the traffic police more.
    Brake less vehicles issued with fitness certificate after fixed bribes collected. School bus with kids perished in accident. More rules more violations more corruption.

    NOTA - NON OF THE ABOVE in ballot paper to be stamped
    to indicate that the voter is dissatisfied with all the candidates.
    Statistics of NOTA indicates the % of electorate in a given region not satisfied at all with any of the candidates .

    There is no guarantee that the elected candidate(s) would remain clean & perform consistently good throughout the tenure. Horse trading is order of the day.

    One after another rep of candidates visit the electorate and bribe in camera or in open for votes. Few voters of that electorate were asked to whom they had voted. One voter said, the candidate who offered least bribe. Another voter said, that he had stamped on NOTA.

    There is no perfect way to put honest person on the ruler's chair. The only choice is to accept a lesser evil. In USA Trump is not accepting the result and some Republicans are of the opinion that it is time to put certain possibilities to test by challenging them in courts.
    In Bihar Tejaswi Yadav says there was fraud committed on the behest of the people in power meaning BJP by directing the Returning Officer to count the postal ballets after the counting of the EVM votes. The rule says the postal ballets should be counted first. He says 20 seats declared as BJP winner with very small margin may be because of the unusually high number of postal votes rejected. He want recounting of the postal ballets and review of the ballets rejected.
    The problem is even after voting the results can be manipulated.
    Still, Democracy seems to be the only option.

    :hello:
    89%...Wow.
    If there are serial numbers on vote forms, their authenticity can be traced.
    I also saw in a CNN program that total number of voter forms printed/ issued, were 1 billion!
    For a total population of around 300 million that sounds weired and suspicious.
    Trump needs to dig more.
    He will.
    He doesn't give up so easily.
    And luckily for him there are a lot of Republican states' supporting legal steps.
    Let's wait and see.

    If the rule is to count first postal ballots as in India, the scope for manipulation could be less or least.
    If several times the number of ballot papers printed exceeds the number of people to be voted, don't we think something fishy.
    Tajeshwar yadav questions the breaking rule of counting that ballots via postal counted later and the number of votes via postal rules the commonsence.
    Whether Rama or Ravana rules for a commoner like Beaty, it seems immaterial as in any case Beaty has to strive to earn his first bread and if possible butter without bitterness.
    Regards.

    Let us see. If proved, it will be a fraud on democracy.

    The Democrats are evidently getting exposed of the Biggest Electoral Fraud...
    BREAKING NEWS...!
    Some friends in London just forwarded me this news story that is now being broadcast throughout the United Kingdom. It is of course not being broadcast here in the United States:

    “CIA Homeland Security launched the largest election sting operation 6 hours ago.

    Over 500 elite units moved into all ballot counting depots nationwide to stand guard over all the printed ballots.

    They were ALL printed with QFS-BLOCKCHAIN (unbreakable code) Watermarks.

    So far 14 million ballots have been put through a laser scanner in 5 different states and 78% have failed [NO watermarks] and 100% of these failed ballots all had Biden on them.

    Interesting next few days ahead.

    This is the brilliance of Donald Trump and his team. They placed an ‘invisible watermark’ on ballots and told no one.

    Now the National Guard are going in with ‘infra red’ equipment and can easily read which ballots are real and which are fake, and they are doing a recount.

    The Full Story !
    from James Sheets:

    THE WATERMARK on the official election ballots !! The original ballots are also registered on a “QFS blockchain” to prevent fraud.
    12 states were “targeted !”

    The National Guard has been deployed to 12 states Alabama, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, Delaware, Illinois and Kentucky and they are now counting the official ballots!!!!

    The DEMS fell right into the trap of this sting operation and TRUMP has it all !! This FRAUD will be exposed for the whole world to see !

    And isn't it fancy how the amazing new Supreme Court Justice ‘Amy’ was appointed / confirmed by right before this election ...so that she can rightfully take care of the business of ... election fraud....

    Oh and this is only the beginning of the EPIC times that lie ahead !!
    So, did Trump win by a landslide !?! You will soon SEE that he did !”

    It looks like Mr Trump will be re-elected in January after all, and the truth is coming out...!
    The light is ALWAYS stronger than the dark.....!
