is NOT the election
of an Emperor,
a King,
a Supreme Ruler.

recognises the danger of ONE person
wielding ALL of the power,
and is not a free mandate
to legislate unchallenged.
(that’s a dictatorship)

is not about belittling, sidelining or destroying
ANYONE who disagrees with you,
until all that is left
are cronies who are afraid
to disagree with you.

has a constitution
that preserves the integrity of the system,
and has essential checks and balances,
to ensure future generations
can live in a humane society
that treasures political, religious and cultural freedom.

regardless of party line or ideology,
is a set of principles
which must be safeguarded,
because if the principles fall,
the society falls…
