Awe Topsy - 7

New Age Voting Machine

In the previous post of this series a tally of mass killings in the USA was presented (Awe Topsy - 6). 

Those who read the news know that that tradition continues.

In another series Dredd Blog warned about the consequences of lax judicial appointment machinations (Here Come De Conservative Judges, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

Again, those who read the news know that that tradition continues (How the Supreme Court may have helped Republicans take the House, Roe v Wade Overturned: What It Means, What’s Next).

And in the series Blind Willie McTell News, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 the media is criticized because, among other things, it is a descendant of the father of spin and it wants to make everything prettier than it really is (The Ways of Bernays).

But I digress.

This series is about the autopsy of elections.

Portions of the media have praised the voters for saving democracy by keeping the Democrats in charge of the Senate, but seem to not take note of the fact that the Democrats lost the house ("by a very small margin").

The loss of the House is a major event, because the government budget begins there, continuation of government paychecks and funding can be stopped there, and Bengazi / Hunter Biden, and other significant events take place there (such as not going along with the Senate in legislation events).

Of course if they get too wacky the Democratic controlled Senate will not take up their bills, nor will the Democratic President sign their crazy stuff.

Nevertheless, the election denying, abortion denying, and gerrymandering Supreme Court and House can cause a world of hurt.

Out of many to choose from, democracy is not the type of US government:

"Androcracy, Aristocracy, Autocracy, Communist state, Confederation, Consociationalism, Corporatocracy, Corporatism, Demarchy, Democracy, Despotism, Empire, Ethnocracy, Fascist state, Federation, Feudalism, Garrison state, Gerontocracy, Green state, Hierocracy, Isocracy, Interregnum, Kakistocracy, Kratocracy, Kleptocracy, Kritarchy, Kritocracy, Kyriarchy, Logocracy, Matriarchy, Mediocracy, Meritocracy, Minarchism, Monarchy, Nanny state, Nation-state, Nomocracy, Noocracy, Ochlocracy, [Oilagarchy], Oligarchy, Panarchism, Pantisocracy, Parliamentary state, Patriarchy, Provisional government, Plantocracy, Plutocracy, Police state, Polyarchy, Presidential, Puppet state, Republic, Socialist state, Sociocracy, Squirearchy, Stratocracy, Sultanism, Superpower, Supranational union, Synarchy, Technocracy, Thalassocracy, Theocracy, Timocracy, Tribe, Tyranny, Unitary state, [Wartocracy], Welfare state"

(The Government of MOMCOM: Wartocracy - 2). It is said to be a constitutional republic, but is more likely a Plutocracy.

Which is still in danger from the descendants of Bernays.
