    TEHRAN – As U.S. election debates heat up, so does the speculation over which candidate will be better for Iran.

    The ins and outs of American elections

    The first words to come out of most mouths regarding the first debate were 'shocking,' 'disturbing,' 'demoralizing,' 'frightening' and so many other hyperboles. But if it wasn't for the fact that this was one of the traditional ways to elect a president with the most powerful military in the world, one could almost see the humor in the debate. Two septuagenarians acting like kindergarten children fighting over a snack, especially when one is the U.S. president, just has to make one laugh at the absurdity of it all.

    Election 2020: Stakes never higher for Dis-United States

    ('Stand back, stand by': Trump prepares to declare victory)

    The United States has not been so dis-united since the end of the Civil War a century and a half ago. The reason for the great divide that has opened up in U.S. society is clear and it is the presidency of Donald Trump. It is not by accident, but rather by design that the U.S. has been fractured and broken; for the reason, we merely need to recall the principle of ‘divide and conquer’.

    America’s quasi-democratic election

    The U.S. is not a direct democracy

    As the theoretically pure form of democracy exists in any major country given their size, we cannot say the U.S. election is a fully democratic election.

    U.S. election and the challenge of potential voters

I noted Benjamin Franklin’s warning to the nation’s founders on the uncertainty of whether the newly created republic would last into “remote futurity.” Asked if a republic or monarchy was formed, he responded: “A republic if you can keep it.”
