Europe Stunned, Angry As Switzerland Votes To Curb Immigration

Tyler Durden's picture


This wasn't supposed to happen. At a time when the European Union, reeling from the ongoing near collapse of the Eurozone, has been preaching its key benefits - the removal of borders and the free transit of labor - moments ago Switzerland, with a tiny majority of 50.4%, voted in favor of new immigration curbs which requires the government to set an upper limit for foreigners, risking a backlash from the (utterly toothless) European Union.

In some ways this was a vote of the urban vs rural population: Voters in the cities of Zurich and Basel and cantons in western Switzerland opposed the measures, while those in rural German- speaking cantons and the Italian-speaking region of Ticino backed it, reports Bloomberg.

The problem for Europe is that the backlash against immigration was supposed to be a PIIG thing, having led to the surge of such nationalist parties as Golden Dawn in Greece, but they don't matter as the will of the "peripheral" people is completely ignored in Europe. However, now that one of Europe's most successful nations has opined against the free importing of labor, despite the prevalent perception that it has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of immigration, Switzerland has just left Europe's pro-migration propaganda in shambles. To wit, from Bloomberg:

Immigration has supported economic growth, and the EU bloc is Switzerland’s top export destination. Roughly a fifth of its 8 million inhabitants come from abroad. About 45 percent of employees in its chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech industry are foreigners, according to scienceindstries, an association whose members include drugmakers Roche Holding AG and Novartis AG, and food company Nestle SA.


We do need to hire talented individuals,” Credit Suisse Group AG Chief Executive Officer Brady Dougan told reporters on Feb. 6. “Having access to talent is something that’s important for all the businesses here.”


In the run-up to the vote, the initiative “against mass immigration” pitted companies small and large against the euro- skeptic Swiss People’s Party SVP, the biggest in the lower house of parliament. Corporations argued they need top talent from around the world to maintain their competitive edge, while critics, many of them members of the SVP, said the flood of newcomers is leading to worse working conditions, crowded trains and a housing shortage.

The unexpected outcome may lead to some dramatic consequences for Switzerland: according to Thomas Kern, chief executive officer of Zurich Airport, a “yes” to the vote could even jeopardize the country’s aviation industry by forcing the re-negotiation of landing rights. “A lot is at stake,” he told the newspaper Blick in an interview published on Feb. 7.

In response about public unease about the number of newcomers, the government already enacted yearlong curbs on residence permits for citizens of EU countries including Germany and France. There are also quotas for citizens of non-EU countries such as Australia and Canada.

Ironically, it could get even worse for fans of free labor movement before it gets better: "in a sign of how anxious the Swiss population is about foreigners, another initiative, which would cap the immigration rate at 0.2 percent of the resident population, is in the pipeline. The government, which opposes that measure too, hasn’t set a voting date yet."

What remains unsaid here is that immigration will be the least of Swiss worries if, as the SNB has been warning for the past week, the Swiss housing market - already in an unprecedented bubble - undergoes a controlled demolition, precisely at a time when foreigners suddenly find themselves no longer welcome in the one-time netural utopia nestled within the tranquility of the Alps.

Regardless of the outcome for the Swiss economy, Europe is furious:

The vote also risks creating a rift between Switzerland and the EU, its biggest trading partner. The decision to open the borders 12 years ago was negotiated as part of a package of agreements that allow Swiss companies access to the common market, the government has warned.


According to European Commission President Jose Barroso, the free movement of persons was of “fundamental importance” and cannot be separated from the free exchange of goods, services and capital. “Within the framework of the bilateral agreement there are certain legal consequences,” Barroso told the Neue Zuercher Zeitung in an interview last November.


“That’s the open question -- one doesn’t know what the EU will do,” said Andreas Ladner, professor of public administration at the University of Lausanne. “The EU has indicated that the initiative violates its free movement of people and won’t be tolerated.”

So now that the unthinkable has happened, just what will the unelected European bureaucrats do to enforce its "untoleration" of the Swiss democratic vote": invade the mountainous country? Hardly.

Instead Europe will content itself with doing the only thing it knows how to do: use harsh language, in this case the following email it blasted out angrily in the aftermath of the Swiss vote, saying that "the European Commission regrets that an initiative for the introduction of quantitative limits to immigration has been passed by this vote. This goes against the principle of free movement of persons between the EU and Switzerland."

Most importantly, it also goes against the core European principle of ignoring what the majority wants because everyone in centrally-planned, banker-controlled, insolvent European nations knows- only a few "good" unelected bureaucrats know what is best for everyone. As such the democratic vote must always be ignored, especially when it goes against the thesis preached by the politicians, the central bankers, and, of course, Goldman Sachs.

Not all humans are created to be the same - MEANING that nationalism is inherent in the human race. Do you as a black man listen to Polish Polka folk music? Do you as a white european listen to Chinese folk music? Differences in cultures and traditions WILL BE RESPECTED. I'm here in Canada and there are so many Indians.... do they BELONG here? (have a sense of BELONGING?) Not at all. They are only here because they see opportunity. I've never met a Canadian-Indian from India who listens to bagpipe music or native flute music. The Indians here celebrate Diwali and other Indian cultural events, because they are inherently INDIAN.

"Are the people who wrote this article aware of the fact that Switzerland aren't in the EU?"

Yes I believe so as they refer to the suite of Agreements entered into between Switzerland and The EU in lieu of membership IN the EU. Put simply, there is a Free Trade Agreement with some additional items, such as free movement of people across the borders. Nigel Farage wants the same for The UK when it eventually exits The EU, but without the lack of immigration controls.

The EU's response to Switzerland will be interesting for several reasons. If they cancel the Free Trade facility for Switzerland, that would scuttle UKIP's policy on EU trade. It would also be interesting then to see the response of giant Swiss Corporations (Nestle, Roche, Novartis, Swatch etc.) The domestic Swiss market is tiny so would these Corporations remain in Switzerland or re-incorporate elsewhere?

For all actions there are, or should be despite Central Planning, consequences.

Out of curiosity, since the CHF peg was implemented for the benefit of Big-Business Swiss exports to the EU, if the EU decides it no longer wants Big-Business Swiss Imports, what's the SNB's motivation to refrain from making a fuck-ton of profit the expense of the EUR Ponzi-scheme that Berlin and Brussels are desperately trying to prop up? (Other than the obnoxious habits of courtesy and not making a mess...)

I have been pondering exactly this for hours now.

There was also a hell of a lot of debt issued to Europeans denominated in CHF that will become immensely difficult to repay if the CHF is allowed to rise against the Euro as was part of the reason the peg was implemented in the first place...

Right. Like you're an expert. 23 percent of foreigners. Switzerland has a tradition of being foreign friendly and is a magnet in the heart of Europe. +80000 per year for the last several years (total population: roughly 8 million). No one wants anyone to leave, the initiative wants to curb the inflow.

MEANING that nationalism is inherent in the human race.

Disagree. For it to be inherent universally, an infant would have to be born with the understanding of Nationalism. Nationalism is learned, and not innately human. It may appear innately human, because the most irrational, fearful and self-loathing humans on the planet are running the show, and are responsible for educating humans.

Given the choice, (IWO, with it being illegal) would/should two individuals on opposite sides of some arbitrary line, refuse to trade with eachother, simply because they are from the other side of some line?

It's not that different NATIONS can't do business with each other, but there is a cultural element that is extremely in-born. A Greek is a Greek and a Turk is a Turk and never the twain shall meet. It's just how it is. If you are a white person, try intermingling with niggers in the ghetto. I bet you can't - and that's because niggers are always niggers and only niggers. Wiggers aren't even allowed. (to put it impolitely).

Geneva police have set up a special street crime unit and more officers are planned to combat a local crime wave. Yet certain foreign diplomats say more must be done and warn insecurity is threatening the city’s image.

Saudi Consul General Nabil Mohammed Al-Saleh, dean of Geneva’s consular group, comprising some 30 consulates like Britain, Belgium, Turkey, Algeria and South Africa, confirmed insecurity had become the “number one” concern of local diplomats.
“Crime has been increasing in Geneva over the past ten years,” he explained. “Everyone is upset. Everyone has been through something.”

Substitute the 20th Century definition of Nation as a purely abstract Legal-Political entity with the 19th Century definition of Nation as a group of historically related people, or the Bronze Age definition of Nation as tribe, and yes, it is innately human. That is why is it so useful to political leaders: Us and Them is real. Inclusive Fitness is built-in.

Furthermore, In-group Bias is found throughout the hominids and other gregarious species, so homo saps are not alone. Who taught them? Where was it learned? A pigeon attempting to flock with hawks would not survive. Likewise, termites do not associate with ants. And yes, chimpanzees regularly attack the chimps on the other side of the valley rather than trade. Discrimination is an adaptive trait, and selected for.

That said, I understand your point. Humans take this too far sometimes, leading to wars and the like. But to deny "nationalism's" innate existence is to deny history and the empirical record entirely. We will not get anywhere denying differences. Perhaps we can learn to appreciate them, but not obliterate them.

I don't think of it as nationalism in the modern sense.   I think of it as tribalism in the socioloical sense.  And yes, humans everywhere attempt to arrange themselves is social pods.  You can define those tribes anyway you see fit based on what you value most.   Some do it along religious lines, some will define it based "race" but what is race?  They really do it based on a shared history of family and culture.  So, if you're Samoan, and proud of it, it's not a racial's a historical context.    

This is also why American "culture" if you call it that is weak and breaking apart.  Our of "political correctness" we've socially disgraced the raising of cultural walls and distinctions in favor of pseudo-integration and acceptance.  Read your history.  This has rarely won't work in here in America.....and God bless the Swiss for recognizing it.

There is a riddle here somewhere. The US became a [once] great nation precisely because it welcomed in all comers for 150 years. Conversing with folks you don't understand, or don't like, or disagree with is an excellent way to broaden one's mind. It is a reliable way to find 'new' approaches to old problems.

It is not advisable or necessary for multiple trading partners to come to the table being all alike - isolationist behavior only weakens social structure and hardens prejudice. Its one of the biggest problems with the financial sector - multiple partners all engaging in masturbation. Not one of the economic or political geniuses we currently have at the helm have brought anything new to the table. One giant pack of wankers.

Ai uchi: an attitude of no-attitiude; treat one's enemy as an honored guest. In this way enmity is often overcome and an outcome beneficial to all parties is acquired. While I feel that such a conclusion is not really possible with the current bankster-led repocalypse, circling the wagons and shooting at anything that moves is not the way to a good solution (whatever one might feel about shooting bankers). In the global village, many of us who are worlds apart are nonetheless in the same boat. The sooner we figure out how to work together, the sooner we may have a chance at surviving for another century or two. Which may just barely buy us enough time to find another rock to colonize...

What makes you think s/he lives in a Western country or cares what happens to wogs living there?

Yes, the pendulum will swing and people identifiable as belonging to non-local cultures could become targets. But as things start getting tougher for everyone in the West, they might simply relocate to their countries of origin if they still have any connections left. Others might become tools of the elite and receive their protection in return for doing the dirty work of the elite. However what is extremely unlikely is that any Western country or NATO could launch a military attack on their country of origin because they don't like the behaviour of the immigrants/descendents of immigrants. The immigrants to the West from third world are not exactly popular back in their countries of origin. Their immediate family may be proud of them because of the gifts they take back home enhancing their prestige locally, but should the same guys come under attack from the local pouplations of their adopted countries, few back home would sympathise with them.

Anyway, coming to topic on hand, it is a smart move by the Swiss. Social cohesion is much more important than businesses' interests.

In terms of official signage (at least going into f (l or r) ug (k or h) a (f or v) en Zürich) I would agree. The hand written notes I get seem to be all over the place, but at least this far east if you pronounce it without a "t" you're going to get strange looks. I generally have to read Schweizerdeutsch out loud just to understand standard Swiss or Züritütsch. When it comes to Schwyzerdütsch I'm at best one step from full-retard (even though I spend about one weekend a month there). So I certainly defer your more lengthy experience here. BTW one of the drive by red voting trolls seems to have left his marks throughout the entire thread, sort of like a dog out for walk.

I actually just went another year without converting the Ausländerausweis from B to C, as I take the the whole citizenship thing at least as seriously as the locals do (but I'm also not likely to give the politically correct answer on written civics exam). If TSHTF in the US, I will not remain neutral (whether I return to the US or work more diplomatically abroad with my friends in other governments depends on the circumstances). Meanwhile there are certain peculiarities here I have trouble adjusting to (like the real reasons behind the incident Oprah mistook for racism). I'm also still trying to properly turn around the company I took over when I moved here, while paying myself just enough to remain below the US foreign earned income exclusion, which inevitably results in annual tax audit here (usually 1 quick letter and copy of financials). Then there is the problem that I really like tinkering with both my cars and guns and prefer the AR15, custom 1911 pistols, and vintage gas guzzling muscle cars to Sig firearms and Mercedes McCars, so I would have to open another business to just to be able to pursue my hobbies (and even then I might not be able import my suppressed Sig 553 with a laser/light combo - which I actually do like more than an equivalent built on a modified piston-driven AR15 platform). So first things first, fix the business, switch to a C pemit, join a Swiss ISDPA chapter, and if that US can work through its shit without blowing up, then I would consider it. In the interim if the Germans' joke of a military comes across the border looking for gold, I'll do my part.

A dear US freind of mine is currently going through the citizenship process, what a pain. Its easier if you apply as an Eritrean refugee, than a sucessfull high six figure earner, employing 4 people here.
In reference to your tinkering hobbies, no need to start a company, there are always ways around. the laser combo no problem, the silencer however is a difficult one. the reason beeing that the swissies only want you to shot in designated areas at predefined time slots. driving mercedesMC no problem either, if you get all the extra parts approved, else go for a german license plate. If you need any help from business to hobbies, drop me a message at zerohedge.

The Swiss will keep the talented, they just want the poor riff-raff gone.  Sucks for the hotels and the resorts; they are going to have to up their wages big time to attract local labor.  When the EU falls apart though, they will at least be protected from the  hords of Walking Dead...most of the rest of Europe will be overrun in no time.

Probably 90% of the congregation at my wife's church is either immigrant for fist generation, so they might fall into into under your characterization of "poor riff-raff" but this political move is actually beneficial for them.

There is a long-running Swiss analog to the 29hr/week Obamacare fucking of the masses over here that relates to employer contributions to the personal pensions (which discrete people don't understandably like to talk about), that employers routinely exploit, to keep labor costs downs.

The temp agencies also have revolving door policies where they balance their placement commissions with mandated benefits expense.

The one area where it will make a difference is with the large number of people who drive in from Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland etc. and basically live in their cars for a month or more trying to secure a (usually exploitative) employment contract so they can get a temporary work permit, and housing which more imported labor must build because of the domestic shortage, further inflating the real-estate bubble.

I may be old-fashioned, but I don't like needless/make changes. When I hire someone (even a janitor), I don't want to replace them six months later, it's non-productive and creates negative undercurrents in the work environment. But that seems more and more to be an exception to the way things are done.

I coundn't agree more Sudden Debt. I have seen what has happened in the UK, and it is a horrible mess now in most all major UK cities. Vast populations of immigrants with no desire to integrate or to work, sure a lot of immigrants do come to work, like the Polish, BUT, I am not talking about the Polish, I am talkining about Pakistan, India, Africa and others, the cities are full up with them, and they are on the dole.

There is a United Nations article that forbids the forcefull destruction of native cultures by outsides. I dare to say that the people of Britain are being forced to destruction by massive unwanted immigration what will, in a few gernerations make any native Britain a minority, fit only to work and pay taxes for the vast army of immigrants who have conquered that Island and it's long standing native culture and ethnic identity.

I know there is a plan to eliminate all native European races and cultures, IF they are white people. Look at what is happening, it is open season on whites in their own countries, while Africa demands to be African, they also demand the right to be British. Go figure.

Outstanding Fighter Aircraft by the way, the FW 190!  My father's Aircraft was more than once filled with holes, including 20mm cannon rounds over the Low Countries in 1944 by this aircraft.

But to your point. I pray god that Scotland does take this rare and maybe last chance to free themselves. Unfortunately, at the very, very best, 40% are leaning for independence, and this is a very opptimistic number. Many simply are not true native Scots, and will vote pro UK, many others draw their living from UK government and fear any changes to administration in that country. I see little chance they will vote for freedom, and sadly, if independent, they have vowed to take full EU memberships and thus answer to Brussels. So, it looks nice on the surface, but underneath it all, the New Word Order seems to be a winner no matter how the Scots vote. I do love that country, had a close friend, a second father really, who lived in Edinburgh. He has long since passed, but I spent much time touring Scotland with his family when I was younger, words can't describe the beauty of that land, I mark it my favorite place in the world. I long for it's independence, but don't believe that will happen, at only 1/8th scots, I have no right to tell them what to do, but I can hope.

interestingly, the political majority of Scotland tends towards the social democratic, and is in favour of a different migration policy than England

further, if Scotland votes for exiting it's political union with the UK, it would drop out of the EU. Both London and Madrid have repeatedly pointed that out to the Scots, both for the very narrow political reasons of keeping their political unions with Scotland and Catalonia

now that would be a hilarious result. Pro-EU Scotland outside and putting itself the list of the new joiners and EU-skeptic England still inside


lots of comments on this thread seem to miss one important point: it's not the EU as such that allows "brown people" and Muslims into europe

they all came and still come thanks to national immigration policies. examples: Pakistanis in Britain, Middle Easterners in Belgium and Sweden, North Africans in France, Turks in Germany and Austria

the freedom of movement of people inside the EU applies to citizens of EU countries, and visa holders of national authorities

There's hating people because they're of a different ethnic origin, and there's wanting your country to retain its character and traditional ethnic demographics.

Until the Europeans are brave enough to stop letting the globalists and anti-European elites conflate the two, they are destined to lose their culture and identity.  Which will probably happen, and hopefully they will transform into something as good or better.

But it is absurd and dishonest to claim it is 'racist' to want to remain who you are as a people.  And as I've noted, the people who are leading the charge are often abject hypocrites, themselves motivated by hate.

Having had the pleasure of living in Brussels in the mid 70's the only Muzzies there either Diplos or down by Hasyel Stadiumin a Morrocan neighborhood.

What I find STAGGERING is that this has happened in ONE GENERATION. No Western European country has EVER changed it's demos so drastically.

And near as I can tell integration is limited to at best maybe 2-3% of that total. The rest are on the dole and easy marks for the Fundies as they are caught between 2 cultures and accepted by neither. In fact the 2nd generation of muzzies is without doubt much more less inclined to integrate than their fathers who were obliged to work.

I seriously doubt this is going to have a happy ending and it saddens me greatly.

The worker slaves should all be of one mixed race and have no identity outside of their worker status. No race, no culture, no ethnic identity, only the work and slavery they must do is their identity. Elites want that world, and they are getting it, while they breed with great care, they demand complete interbreeding and the end of ethnic culture among all whites. It is that simple. Race hate for whites is now the norm. Why is Russia so hated by world elites? I'll tell you, they intend to defend their culture and race and nation from the elite's plan. They intend to be Russian, and the elites hate them for it. Putin throw open your border and integrate they scream. And bad news, their birth rates are starting to rebound, so with proper care in state policies to reward families, they may yet save themselves. I advise Putin to make the tax laws so as to reward families and the more kids the greater the tax cuts for them. This would really piss off the haters outside their nation.

They mention the failed 5th Olympic ring ad nauseam, like the U.S. has never had major mishaps in production, such as a mega pop-star setting his hair on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial. 

It just shows that our MSM is doing everything it can to not let any glitter fall off of the American turd, while Putin says "We are Russian and you're not. Now politely go fuck yourself."

I agree meat. Being of Swedish background and living in a cold climate, I love winter sports, and use my DVR to get all the Olympic sports. You are correct, every chance is taken for a back handed slap at the people, the nation and their culture by the media talking heads. What pissed me of yesterday, was to watch a beautiful 15 year old Russia girl figure skate a program of extraordinary difficulty and beauty, bringing the crowd to it's feet. The USA talking heads said "Oh well, the crowd is pro Russia." Then went on to call attention via replay to what they thought were faults in her program, little insults where ever they could be slipped in. Yet the board of international judges, including USA/Canada/Scandinavian etc. who have every reason to low ball her score, instead gave her the highest marks. It was a wonder to see her perform, but the sick perverted US media are such fucking political hacks that they pretended to find faults with a little 15 year old girl performing on the world stage. That is just how immature, petty and wholly political the whore US media is. No other skaters who win the competition by a wide score are then subjected to insults for their win. USA! USA! USA! I mean, fuck off, can't even let little girls have a win in peace from the USA attack dogs. What is that all about, other than petty selfish shit.

Jewish eschatology

Let us compare this Muslim scenario with that of the most representative branch of Judaism. As we have already stated the vast majority of modern orthodox Jews (Religious Zionists) believe that the return of the Jewish people to the Land of their forefathers, and the establishment of the State of Israel, are precursors to their imminent redemption through a leader they will call their messiah. This redemption is conceived as the historical restoration of their full political and religious sovereignty in the land of their forefathers. As a result of this redemption, the Jewish people will be vindicated over other nations, and through the leadership of their messiah the whole world will be restored (Tikun HaOlam) and all its inhabitants will experience peace and prosperity.

In order to prevent false messianic movements within Judaism, Maimonides in the 12th Century defined more precisely than ever who their messiah should be and what he would do (Mishneh Torah, Book 14: Judges, Treatise 5 [Kings and Wars], chs. 11-12) and these rules are now binding from the point of view of Jewish religious law: their messiah will be an observant Jew who will succeed in bringing the entire Jewish people to keep the Torah, in defeating their enemies (and winning the famous battle of Gog and Magog), in bringing the exiles back to Israel, and, finally, in building the third temple in its place. Please take note: the coming of their messiah and the arrival of their redemption await the literal completion of the building of the temple in its place on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Their messiah will be like Moses, and his coming will be confirmed by a religious leader, who will be like Elijah. Their mission will prepare the Jews for the final judgment and resurrection at an unknown time in the future. Since all Jews will have repented by then, all will be considered righteous. The final judgment will mainly be an occasion for the punishment of the wicked gentiles, and the abolition of their nations. After the final judgment, God will live among men and the earth will be like it was in paradise, as described in Isaiah 11,6-9: “Then the wolf will be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; the calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them…”


In the Messianic era the nations will recognize and facilitate Israel's role as a priestly nation. The imagery used by the Bible suggests servitude, "Foreigners will stand and tend your locks and the sons of the stranger will be you plowmen and your vineyard workers. And you will be called 'priests of Hashem"' "ministers of our G-d" will be said of you. You will eat of the wealth of nations and will pride yourselves in their glory." (Isaiah 61:5-6, Artscroll), nevertheless I think that the main point is that the nations will view the Jewish people as their clergy rather than as their masters.


For reasons I'm sure you appreciate, there are considerable apologetics regarding the more megalomaniacal aspects of the Torah/Talmud.  But you can simply look to what various leaders, whether of Chabad Lubavitch, or the Hasids, or fairly mainline Sephardic and Ashkenazi rabbis have said - utterances which would never cease being discussed in the media if their like was said by the Pope or a Greek Patriarch.


The most famous, or at least most recent, of course, was Rabbi Yosef


Imagine if say 80 million Americans marched in the streets at the death of David Duke.  I'd figure the country had jumped the shark.  But he didn't say anything that was contrary to orthodox, fundamentalist or even conservative Judaism.


Again, I call it hate even when done by a group you aren't supposed to criticize because they've been victims {and, truthfully, purveyors} of hate for millenia.

The golden dawn has not mattered one bit ever since John McClain took out Hans Gruber and everyone knows it.

Europe stunned?  More like "Europe Jealous" or "Europe Getting Some Good Ideas For Their Next Local Election".

Does this mean that it's time for the EU to incite a "Swiss Spring", Ukraine style?

Where's McCain to beat his chest?

Sadly even if the elite did act on it (which they most definitely won't) it comes to late to halt Europe's inevitable demographic replacement.

The Swiss have been moving in this direction for years. It wasn't that long ago when all of Europe was shocked, enraged and deeply disappointed that the Swiss voted to ban the construction of minarets in an attempt to discourage muslim immigration. The Swiss system of direct democracy sometimes leads to controversial decisions, or delays, for example it wasn't until the 1970's that Swiss women finally gained the right to vote.

I agree. Any down arrows are from beta, pussified males. Go ahead and down arrow me bitches, but the truth is women's rights as well as others' rights (fags, multicult) is what brought about the moral decay of mankind across the globe.

Or the reverse.

Moral decay brought about the legalization of moral decay by moral degenerates.

The right to vote did insomuch as dependents should not have,the same right to vote as the productive. The female tends toward the dependent in our species and statist demagogues go for their votes with great success

If they elect Hillary, she will go for our balls, adapting Stalin's quip, 'No men, no problem.'

Your problem is thinking elections even exist in the first place. The next salesman for the corporation a.k.a potus has already been chosen.
