108. Oh dear God...
You are correct that The US and South America are very different.
For one thing,
they have Transparent, Fair, Verifiable Elections monitored by International agencies.


There aren't enough face palms in the world...

Does it occur to you that the reason their elections are monitored is BECAUSE of corruption or much, much worse? South America is not the paragon of virtue the way you seem to need everyplace but America to be.

Here's a PDF about vote buying in Argentina, an area I have spent much time in - http://lasa-2.univ.pitt.edu/LARR/prot/fulltext/vol39no2...

PLEASE read something besides DU.
