Democracy Restored

with 8 comments

Jubilant with the election results, we met over beer to celebrate. Our candidate of choice had won. The first online voting had been a success, so we thought.

Local goons barged in. Held at point-blank range, we were dragged out.
In the van, we were handed laptops and data-cards.

The website was updated.
Democracy was restored.
