ever heard of a fixed election? the guy is a military leader. vote against him and you get jailed. and wasnt his last election close to a split.

so imprisoning citizens without question is not dictating the law? and asking what the tex rate is in a socialist company is like asking a janitor to dismantle an atomic bomb. basically if you work for the govt you dont have to pay income tax but if you work for a private oil business, as the majority of people do, its something like 17 percent royalty tax and close to 68 percent income tax. check countrywatch.com.
