You can be against some of the things the junta does, and against some of the things TRT/PPP/PTP did  ...

...  and still hope that democracy and freedom eventually win ! :wai:

I don't think it's possible to support the junta at any level and still support a return to democracy.

The junta's sole purpose is to deny a return to democracy.

It is one or the other.

Whatever ones thought are regarding PTP and the Shinawatra's are irrelevant to this equation.

After all the blah blah woof woof about "democracy" etc ...the current administration is probably the best(for most Thais) in Thailand's history.

blah, blah blah....woof, woof, woof...why the fear of an election then?

(could it be most Thais hate the Junta because they are one of the worst administrations ever?)

I guess you can, it's a bit silly though, kind of like watching a game of football and hoping both sides lose.

Or sticking your finger in a hole in the Dyke when it would be better suited sticking it in your mouth

Somehow I didn't expect that one who loves Yingluck would stand up for my right to disagree, and you didn't disappoint me ! :coffee1:

 

At least you're consistent, over the years !  Anything which goes against the party-line is "irrelevant" !  Yes Boss ! :cool:

The "equation" that Yinglove refers to I believe is love for democracy, irrespective of any political party.

But obviously, there are political (and for the sake of the military the so-called nonpolitical) factions who aggressively deconstruct any democratic institutions when democratic institutions begin to reach beyond autocratic control.

Well as you suggest that they would be re-elected, thoughts on PTP would be what democracy here would  be like. The answer is "ugly". But only if your moral standards reject blatant corruption as the price to be paid.

Just ask yourself

 

Why have there been so many coups here Hub Of coups is it not.

Why are all Politicians supposed to be corrupt except those in the yellowish set up.

Why are the greens and browns so rich on pay most of use would not get out of bed for.

Why is a certain family always blamed for nearly every event here.

Why is a certain budget so large compared to any other country.

Why do Hiso's/elites get away with even murder.

 

Why

Where does your moral standards stand at this current times when there are so much blatant corruption; some of which can't even be discussed.

So I guess there will be keen interest in the successor.........

They stay on the subject, much as you would divert it.

Democracy as seen through the eyes of the autocracy is always an ugly affair.

Equality, transparency and accountability under the written rule of law is a disturbing experience for the autocratic "exceptionalism" that must transcend the rule of the majority.

And yet, Thais still remain, largely, independent and free and self-sufficient in their everyday - and always have been, regardless of government identity.

Oh, the corruption red herring.

In Thailand corruption is the only constant so it is irrelevant as well.

Unless of course you are seriously proposing that there is no or less corruption under the junta than there was under Yingluck.

In which case

:burp:

I certainly don't oppose your right to disagree, I just think you're wrong.

Now you wouldn't be refusing to stand up for my right to believe you're wrong would you?

That would be disappointing.
