Quite Nominal Democracy

There has never been such a level of disrespect toward basic democratic norms, and thereby democracy itself, in King County, as there has been this year regarding the Director of Elections election, as appointed minions of the corporate machine have conducted candidate forums all over the county, and very few have issued invitations to Mark Greene (the Shoreline community is a commendable exception, along with one or two organizations). Some forums have even gone so far as to invite hand-picked candidates (in other words, not every candidate) for governor in next year's election rather than to consider this year's major regional elections, including the Port of Seattle.

This attitude of a few selecting hand-picked candidates or hand-picked races for the public to consider rather than letting the public decide for themselves is fascistic, and even democracies in other parts of the world allow all candidates to attend forums. So much for democracy in King County, but at least the people may decipher that one of the reasons why Mark Greene is not invited is that Mark is not going to go along with the corporate program of serfdom for the masses or imperialism.
