US Electoral System Does Not Meet Democratic Standards - Russia by valentineuwakwe(m): 4:17pm On Jan 07
Russia said Thursday that an “ archaic” US electoral system that does not meet democratic standards and the politicisation of the media were to blame for American divisions and unrest in Washington .

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the storming of the US Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump was “ an internal US affair” but that blame rested with the US system .

“ The electoral system in the United States is archaic, it does not meed modern democratic standards , creating opportunities for numerous violations , and the American media have become an instrument of political struggle, ” Zakharova told Russian news agencies .

“ This is largely the reason for the split in society now observed in the United States .”

The electoral college system seems to be archaic. Let individual vote for whoever he feels like voting for and not having to be lobbed up to vote for who will deliver his will and intention

What happened in the so called God's own country can never happen in advanced countries like Russia and China.

If this should happen in Nigeria, stupid Nigerians and American asslickers like "DJ SWITCH WITCH" will be shouting BUHARI is a Dictator.

When a country like Russia begins to hold the US to standards in regards to democracy, then you know that there is a problem.

See finishing...

Look at what Trump has rendered US to.

If it were to be an African country you’d see both American and French President dishing out threat messages

Shame on US

My late grandma would say if you were born and meant to be a prince or princess even if threads of fate decided you would be a prince or princess even if God the father decided you would be a prince or princess and in life you choose by choice to hangout with touts, thugs and drug addicts my dear you will end up a junkie. Every seer you visit will tell you sir or madam I see in your star wealth blah blah blah and blah I see you are great I see this and that, but what they won't tell you is unfortunately your life choices has sent you to the gutter.

America choose to allow themselves to be mocked hence the result

Oh well
