Just like in the former Soviet Union. One step to the left or right from the Party line was punishable by a bullet in the back of a head. Fear worked marvels. 99.99% of the population voted for just one candidate approved by the party apparatchiks. That was the system of the "best democracy in the word" that Democrats in name only (DINO) loved so much and worked so hard to replicate. The results speak for themselves.
