Edward Limonov: Dead Elections

Edward Limonov: Dead ElectionsSomewhere hours after 16, it was announced that, as of 15 hours, turnout was on average in Russia - 8,5%. The polling stations opened in the morning at 08, therefore, over seven hours, these unfortunate eight and a half percent of the registered voters voted.

Before the closure of the plots in 20, there were still five hours left, therefore, another six percent could have come at best. Which is approximately 14,5%. I looked at the turnout forecasts of the CEC. They also predict from 14 to 15%.

It is very small. This indicates that the voter for the most part "put on the elections" (popular expression).

True, Peter Tolstoy jumped out and reassured: “The current turnout in the subjects of the federation is completely normal for any democratic country. It can be compared with the indicators of regional elections in France, in Britain ... ".

Thank you, Peter Tolstoy, comforted. When there are more than two million prisoners in our country, we will be comforted by the fact that there are more than two million prisoners in democratic America.

After 20 hours I began to watch the broadcast from the CEC. There, in the center of the table, like the blond Makhno dad, Mrs. Pamfilova sat and gloomily joked about the results. For some reason, everyone fell in unison to the results on Altai (I did not understand, on the Altai Territory or the Altai Republic). Based on the fact that there 32% of voters voted at home, Altai decided to check.

Then I turned, forgive, to the exploits of Mishiko Saakashvili on the Polish-Ukrainian border, because there was more interesting.

In the morning I was told on the radio that in all the 16 regions where governors were elected, United Russia candidates won. News didn't make me cry.

Well, what the governor? The governor in the Russian Federation is not independent, and if he manifests himself as independent, he will be immediately dismissed. As far as I know, there are no independent governors in any country of the world. All countries of the world are tightly centralized. Those that are not centralized, as a rule, disintegrate, and very quickly.

Ilya Yashin, I learned this from the Internet, claims that candidates from his Solidarity in the Krasnoselsky district of Moscow received 7 mandates, and only 3 mandates received United Russia. The election commission did not confirm this information.

However, suppose the information is true.

Based on the fact that a couple of days before the election on the radio, I heard the information that in this election many businessmen of “top management — new people who care about Russia and are critical of the government” will take part in them, I, surprised, he decided that in this way Navalny was preparing for himself the right amount of 110 municipal deputies in XNUMX, so that he could be nominated for the post of mayor of Moscow. (Well, or somewhere else)

And that is why, when I learned about the Miracle in the Krasnoselsky district of Moscow, I thought that the cunning Yashin, left without the leader Nemtsov, would come to Navalny and say: I have seven municipal votes, Alexey Anatolyevich, take it! And Navalny, smiling, will appoint Yashin as his assistant.

Maybe it will, and maybe not. Or maybe the CEC will consider it better and decide that there are no seven mandates.

Or maybe they will take and adopt quickly some new, sophisticated law, in which figs will not need municipal deputies when they nominate a candidate, but, for example, the directors of city dumps will be important, eh?

Glancing our political reality, I can say that the elections have completely lost their meaning.

The opinion of citizens has not lost its meaning, no, but the opinion of citizens is expressed by them not through the election ceremony, but in the form of rumor. Such a multi-voiced opinion, the buzz of such, depending on the number of tears shed at the TV, looking at the ceremony of taking the Crimea into Russia.

I'm not ironic, I dropped a tear myself.

And the opinion is created by the actions of the authorities, because its actions are in our eyes. Let us say why the elections are both governor and municipal, if already people's hearts were won by KrymNash, and those hearts that did not won by KrimNash finish our VKS in Syria to win.

"CrimeaNash" and "VKS in Syria" - this is already a choice, and to go to the most boring electorate to citizens for what reason? And the time is not very much.

There is no reason.

If earlier, the opposition could inform citizens that it was pointless to go to the polls to compete with “crooks and thieves” (the terminology of the opposition), then today there is no sense to go to the polls when it is already clear that they won the power, their CrimeaNashim in Syria.

Again, of course, both CrimeaNash and VKS in Syria - this not only arranged for the authorities, but we also participated, our military, part of the people, but then why go to the polls to vote for ourselves?

It turns out that power is not expelled?

Well, yes, at the moment it turns out.

Temporarily, while winning, the power will win everything. And how will the defeat, here is no longer a fact, not a fact, not a fact ...

    “I looked at the forecasts of the Central Election Commission on the turnout. They also predict from 14 to 15%.
    This is very small. This testifies to the fact that the majority of voters "put to the polls" (popular expression). "

    Well, the parties, say, were also “laid down”.
    "For some reason, everyone united in unison on the results in Altai (I still did not understand, in the Altai Territory or the Altai Republic). Based on the fact that there 32% of voters voted at home, Altai decided to check."
    "The election commission of the Ryazan region published the results of the calculation of 95,13% of the protocols. The turnout of the total number of registered voters is 35,95%. The highest turnout is recorded in Skopinsky district - 73,06% of the total number of voters, as well as in the Alexander Nevsky District - 62,43%. The lowest turnout is in the Oktyabrsky and Moscow districts of Ryazan - 19,56% and 20,13%, respectively. "

      Obviously, Russians do not even have to choose between two chairs: on one, Russian “patriots” with real estate, accounts and families in the countries of the NATO aggressive bloc, on the other - genetic democrats from Zhmerynka and Konotop. No other options are provided.

But you are not interested. You are more interested in spoiling the country (I hope, at least not for free). You have not paid for other options?

    The time chosen is unsuccessful. Country suffering. If Narot goes to the polls, then only in the evening. The funny thing is that it was the party in power, and even the Communists, who lost their votes because of this
    Well, turnout at this time of the year will always depend on the weather. If it is bad, turnout is higher.

      The party in power will never lose its voice. If only because she is a party of power. It was the ruling party that at one time pushed through the law on the abolition of the lower threshold for voter turnout. Even if ALL the population of Russia in protest does not come to the next election, it will be enough for Putin or iPhone to vote for themselves and the elections will be considered valid. Or they will find some drunk and for one hundred grams he will put a cross for EP.

        It was specially planned. Low turnout did not threaten only EdRu. But the “Communists", for a long time anyway, they received their money and will continue to receive it. By the way, such a situation, on the contrary, is harmful to Putin. This is a rehearsal for the presidential election. Do not confuse Putin and EdRo. They are already antagonists. And why, count the instructions of the president to the government and the percentage of implementation. And at the same time read HOW they did what they could.

    I didn’t go to the polls because the deputies of the previous convocation did not fulfill their promises, and I don’t know anything about the new candidates. I also did not see or attempt to pressure through the administrative resource. The weather also arranged a surprise + 9 ° C. So, for me personally, the elections did not take place.

    Yes! Something does not take root in our democracy? Previously, even against everything it was possible, but the party, at the request of the working people, quickly removed these excesses and now the voice of the people, in principle, is not needed.

    in our election process, we don’t have a very important component of a show. everything is boring and gray. for me it’s often too. I would vote but I even follow those who want to get out lazy. if I had even seen or heard them. and so everything is quietly peaceful without surprises. if those who want to change power will behave like amorphous hens to themselves, then who will pay attention to them? Why should I change one body to another if the difference between them is only in the name? for the walk to the site?)))

    You are not a “urapatriot,” you are an instigator.

    If, in essence, the opponent has nothing to object to, people of a small mind turn to individuals. In general, this is a serious charge requiring justification ...

    My conclusion is made on the basis of the general meaning of your comments, in which, although the words are different, the meaning is the same: “everything is different in the state,” such comments on the opinion of the “Personality” are probably not drawn from a “big mind”.

    The opinion of citizens has not lost its meaning, no, but the opinion of citizens is expressed by them not through the election ceremony, but in the form of rumor. Such a multi-voiced opinion, the buzz of such, depending on the number of tears shed at the TV, looking at the ceremony of taking the Crimea into Russia.

    the "opinion" of the people is similar to the "grumble of the crowd" at the premiere of "Boris Godunov", where the extras were entrusted to the fire brigade ... The theater taught the director the firefighters had to repeat the phrase "What to say when there is nothing to say" (the phrase uttered by the extras, according to the director’s intention, she was supposed to create a “murmur of the crowd” - but it was necessary to pronounce it differently ...). Brave firefighters, correctly understanding the director’s instructions, at a crucial moment - at the signal from behind the curtains - in chorus, in good shape! - the famous phrase struck! ... -What - to say - when - nothing to say -! (?)
    That's about the same thing happened today in the election ...

    Electoral digging is a very important event. I am now accused of promoting socialism. I agree that in the USSR
    there was no competition between candidates for different positions. We lived three children with their parents in a 12-meter room.
    The older sister was expecting a baby (her husband served in the army). My all voted, but my sister did not go to the polls. We already went to bed (I was sleeping on the floor), when they came to us and persuaded our sister to vote. The sister showed our
    life. The eldest of those who came swore that he would do everything for his sister to get a separate room. After six months
    Sister received housing. It was 1956.

All the years, you have been seeking "democracy" in our country. So eat with a bun! What, your accomplices threw you? No, they didn’t throw it, they just used it like ... (you know yourself). We must pay tribute to you, you survived, and began to dissociate from them. The whole problem is like you, the desire to destroy. And inability to create. Therefore, you will not succeed.
