Caucuses, Democracy, and Fraud

GOP logoLast month a local GOP caucus in Missouri was conducted in a way that was very apparently fraudulent. Fox News had the story.

Of course, stories such as these are not good for American democracy.

I would like to bring up a perspective for this kind of incidents that are not often brought up. These incidents are not only bad because they don't really let the people decide, they are also bad because they provide a scapegoat. With this kind of incidents, people can always point their fingers at them and say if we have “real democracy,” everything would be fine.
