The San Santiago political landscape shifted in a day when the rich son of a Corporate magnate won the Presidency on a Pro-Colonial platform. The platform was of course a lie. All of the news networks knew it, and their reporters wailed on live broadcasts about how impossible this was. They realized within days that they had helped him get elected by not pointing out his obvious ties to the Chinese Communist Party. And the news networks vowed to never again let the man who was “literally Mao” get away with it. They called on all right-minded citizens of San Santiago to stand against the new President-elect, and his whole cadre of Communist sympathizers. They all deserved to fly out of helicopters. That being the natural way to deal with all Communists.
