Yesterday at Hanover, Germany, President Barack Obama said:
“When I talk about democracy I don’t just mean elections, because there are a number of countries where people get 70, 80 percent of the vote but they control all the media and the judiciary, and civil society organizations and NGO’s can’t organize and have to be registered and are intimidated. I mean real democracy, the sort that we see here in Europe and in the United States. So we have to be vigilant in defense of these pillars of democracy – Not just elections, but rule of law as well as fair elections; a free press; vibrant civil societies where citizens can work for change.”
Well said. Everything is said openly, freely at this moment in the USA for the primaries and no one is put in jail for their fee speech.
It is the candidates who get judged by the people.
