Consequences Of Corruption

So much for democratic mechanisms; the KMT, with its apparent buying of the Central Election Commission, is laughing in the faces of those Taiwanese politicians and their supporters foolish enough to trust to the integrity of democratic checks and balances; democratic mechanisms don't work when lubricated with corruption. I put this argument, albeit in the context of his preferential voting system, to David Reid recently but he wouldn't listen to me.

This dogshit government will have to be stopped by something with a lot more moral backbone than a mere procedural request to the CEC.
