European countries have denounced the last Venezuelan elections as fraudulent. I’m sure they were. That’s for Venezuelans to straighten out with the Maduro government. I ran as an independent socialist candidate against Clinton & Trump but of course it’s impossible for most third-party candidates to get on the ballot in systematically rigged elections. In the 2016 rigged election, Clinton won. But the Electoral College of establishment flunkies handed it to Trump. So why didn’t those European countries go ballistic then? If they’re so concerned about democracy? In truth, the US ranks way up there among the most undemocratic electoral systems in the world.
