And Hillary now has it locked up

Postby Niner Alpha » Tue Jun 07, 2016 12:39 pm

After the party insiders, who are not elected delegates that represent the popular vote, have their secret votes recounted by the AP the media now reports that Hillary has locked up the Democratic nomination. Here is one guy that notices something strangely wrong about this.

This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization — incredibly — conceals. The decisive edifice of superdelegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that its nomination process ends with such an ignominious, awkward, and undemocratic sputter.
