Thread Name: BS: Chartism
Subject: RE: BS: Chartism
The reason I used Chartism as a thread title was because of the long-term impact on the UK electoral system brought about by the Chartist movement arising form the preceding Reform Bill. Initially the movement was defeated, but over time 5 or the 6 demands were passed into UK electoral law.
I was, therefore mooting whether or not the American people should organised and agitate to bring about its own demands for reform, and not allow a wannabe despot President carte-blanche to apply politically expedient changes towards achieving his own personal ends.
