In Soviet elections, the Communist Party leaders would choose which candidates were on the ballot. Is this truly democratic?

Soviet elections weren't real elections. They were just for show.

To significantly different degrees, however.

How can it not be Democratic? That's the same process used by both the Democrats & Republicans in America!!!

I hate to tell all of you this, but America isn't a democracy.

I'm confused. Are you talking about Russia or the Colorado Republican Caucus?

In Communist Russia there was only one party, and it was directly connected with the state. That's what makes it undemocratic.

Let in the libertarians and we'd have three corrupt parties! Greed is universal.
