Hasn’t pizza been called on this? I was slammed for talking about a war that ended 45 years ago. The latest post is talking about voting procedures and the possibility of cheating. I live in the USA. I have an opinion on Brexit. I swallow that opinion whenever I see one of these posts. Indigestion.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

There are frequently allegations of ballot boxes going missing, but
usually from the losers (the exception being the Brexit vote, where
there were ridiculous allegations about vote-tampering from what turned
out to be the winning side).
All governments share a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological
personalities.  It's not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to
the corruptible.  - Frank Herbert: Dune
