The Democratic Republic of Michigan

Hillary Clinton is worried that the will of the people is not being upheld (ht):
Hillary Clinton compared the plight of Zimbabweans in their recent fraudulent election to the uncounted votes of Michigan and Florida voters saying it is wrong when “people go through the motions of an election only to have them discarded and disregarded.”

Because when you hold a fake election with only one name on the ballot, it would be "undemocratic" not to support the inevitable winner, right? Because there's nothing more to democratic elections than "going through the motions". No need for active campaigning to allow the electorate to make an informed decision. Hell, no need to give them alternative options at all. That's all superfluous. As long as the ballot papers end up with a tick by your name, you are the legitimate elected leader of a "democratic" state, and the global community should recognize you as such.
