Backing Trump

Post  wfrad on Sun 06 Nov 2016, 10:43 pm

Russian state TV are backing Trump in the U.S. presidential election.
Highlighting Donald Trump's allegations that Hillary Clinton is corrupt and the election is rigged.
Russian media have concentrated on the flaws in the U.S. election process and Trump's claims that the election is rigged against him.
Come on, any election that depends on the amount of cash you can get for campaigning is rigged in favour of the big money.  
Also, don't forget many of those who have donated will be expecting to be rewarded!
That said, it doesn't necessarily mean that the candidate is corrupt, just obligated, when certain generous friends come calling.  
Like Friends who attempt to influence public policy and law, for example, the law with respect to firearms.
I do find American system a little scary and long winded.
Why shouldn't the elected members of the majority party within the senate have the responsibility of electing and sacking a president.  
It certainly would be more cost effective and no more likely to be open to corruption.
As for the Russian media, never wholly trust a state run organisation. Take a closer look at the BBC and you will find a few closets hiding skeletons.

As for who wins, we had Thatcher and Blair so no system is fool proof!
