I think the random selection of people from the community to run the tables and count the votes in public for all to see, is one of the stronger protections built in to the voting system in Chile. No hanging chads, counted by political party contractors, in the back rooms.
Also, NO ELECTRONIC POS VOTNG MACHINES to be manipulated by the Deep State and/or their proxies.

JA, my wife won't be happy to learn that she is for the first time in her life a vocal de mesa! I got off this time, my first Chile Presidential election.

I was soundly reprimanded for taking that attitude by certain forumites with regards to US voting. I understand now, that sometimes the manipulators in their psycopathic hubris can screw up but then can bring other means of persuasion to turn an outsider into a puppet.

Or steer and condition a declared leftie foreigner into the Soros-Deep State/neoliberal-neoconservative NWO model, look at Bachelet.

What Chile needs is a leader that intelligently plays the developed world players without giving the shop away while waiting for the break in the US Dollar as world reserve currency status.

I thought this one was a bit better on why those that don't vote, have the right to complain all they want.

I'm guessing you're talking about the Trumpster here. This is a topic of debate between the (former) thinking base of Trumps support who actually believed him when he said he was going to stop the foreign wars and focus on America. I say former, because his thinking base threw him overboard when he stabbed us in the back. The question is: Was he co-opted by means of blackmail/threats to his family, or was he in on it from the very beginning?

I think that was the last chance for America to throw the neocons/deep state off of their back. You think the petrodollar will collapse peacefully? I don't. I think many billions will die in an attempt to preserve it.

Say, the revised list of people drafted for working the tables are out. Everyone should check that is registered.

Thought this article was worth a double post.

Well at least some people think there is sufficient foreigners in chile registered to vote that they might decide an election:

Its one of the reasons why that this government allowed the uncontrolled entry of all those Colombians, Haitians etc. recently. The reasoning being that these generally poor, unskilled immigrants will remember who was in power when they were let in, and in a few years, when they have Permanent Residency, they will gratefully vote Left.
And that's also why the bureaucracy has recently been inflated. They know which side their bread is buttered on.

Its called Clientelism and it's often been tried before.

Chile has only studiously adopted what has been tried and proven true in places like Canada where it's been government policy for decades.
