    Don't you love free elections. Just guess what the margin of victory was in N. Korea..... 100%
    Nothing fishy about this story. The dictator received 100% of the votes. Unbelievable that they even wasted the time and money.

    At least they all voted...I suppose no choice. In America where we do have a choice to NOT vote, 46 percent of Americans chose to NOT participate in this Democracy to elect our president in 2012. And in the 2010 mid-term election with no president on the ballot, that number drops to an astounding 62 percent NOT voting. I guess they just prefer to complain than participate in our great democracy.

    Insanity. Dancing the streets?!? Must have been a terrified 'atmosphere' in the air. I feel sorry for all North Koreans forced into the process, and most all North Koreans in general. What's to be done with that country?

    This how the Permanent Political class in Washington D.C. stays in power, oft times they encourage low voter turnout.

    It's all about you as a citizen will put up with, it is a common line of thought that we get the best type government we vote for, very seldom does the US electorate turn out in numbers that exceed 60%, more than likely middle 40', another thought /word being bandied about is the "Low information voter", this is a voter who votes strictly on what he or she needs personally, and usually can't see the forest because of the trees, politicians play to this audience as they cover a wide swath of the electorate, a well informed electorate poses a serious threat to the permanent political class in Washington , so those power brokers have to find trivial issues to distract from the issue that they don't want known let alone discussed.

    I read last night that Ann Coulter was discouraging any passage of an immigration bill. Reason is because Hispanic voters deemed legal are most likely going to vote for Democrats. To hell with the bigger immigration issue, protect your likelihood of winning elections. Another reason she had was the cost of social security, Medicare, and Medicaid would likely go up.
