Democracy Is On The March?

WOW! Democracy is blooming in Mexico. I was so happy that I decided to buy my local newspaper yesterday, Fourth of July, to read the good news. Here is what I found:

Mexico City – Thousands of people rushed to stores Tuesday to redeem pre-paid gift cards they said were given to them previously by the party that won Mexico's presidency, inflaming accusations that the week-end election was marred by widespread vote-buying. At least a few cardholders were angry, complaining that they didn't get as much as promised or that their cards weren't working.

JG: LOL! “Gimme, gimme, something free.” Unconfirmed reports claim that both Obama and Romney have contacted Visa and Mastercard with inquiries about discounts on a million gift cards.

Have no fear, democracy is blooming everywhere, cleverly marketed. Marx who?
