China Confirms Dictatorship

They move from pretend non-dictatorship to unabashed totalism.

China has approved the removal of term limits for its leader, in a move that effectively allows Xi Jinping to remain as president for life.

The constitutional changes were passed by China’s annual sitting of the National People’s Congress on Sunday.

The vote was widely regarded as a rubber-stamping exercise. Two delegates voted against the change and three abstained, out of 2,964 votes.

    In other words, the absolute central power of failed socialism/liberalism finally produced some honesty about what it really is….that is shocking.

    “President Trump told donors on Saturday that China’s president, Xi Jinping, was now “president for life,” and added: “I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll want to give that a shot someday.”

    Looks like POTUS doesn’t feel that way.

    Be quiet, Dennis Rader.

    I know liberals, like yourself, have banned all jokes and humor, but….Trump was joking.

    I know that asking you to get just a little bit of a sense of humor is asking a lot.

    Give humor a try, you might be less miserable from time to time.

    In all humor there is a grain of truth, and that quip by trump is a pretty grim look inside that orange covered head..  That probably explains as well his bromance with putin.  You know, birds of an authoritarian feather flock together.

    I appreciate humor just as much as the next person, but trumps attempts at humor resort to name calling and insults.  It might have worked for Don Rickles, but is inappropriate for out POTUS.

    So says the pissant bureaucrat.

    Try not to go BTK on anyone today.

    Nope, I am an elected official (x2).  And you are ??

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    Let’s remember you are an elected official hiding behind an anonymous screen name.

    You would be better described and a “non-transparent” elected official.

    A two-bit public official in a backwater hick town.

    Anybody is better than you.

    To use the words of dad29, “So what?“.

    Afraid to answer the question, p?

    Try not to strangle anyone today, BTK.
