Superdelegates: How the Democratic Party Controls Democracy

We've talked quite a bit about how the GOP Establishment has gone out of their way to sabotage Trump's ultimate candidacy with full desperation.  

Since the Donald isn't taking money from these rats, they have no influence to tell him who to put as VP or in his Cabinet or who to select as judges, both on Federal court and ultimately Supreme

So being the corrupt entity they are, the GOP Establishment will be conniving and conjuring up a million scenarios between now and the Convention to deny the candidate with the most delegates, his rightful place at the top of the party ticket..

But that doesn't mean the Democrats poo doesn't stink as well..
To determine who is the party nominee, they use both delegates and a uniquely created 'superdelegate'

On July 25, these superdelegates will cast votes at the Democratic National Convention for whomever they want, regardless of primary and caucus outcomes.

Democrats like to describe superdelegates as mostly elected officials and prominent party members, including President Obama and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.

This group, which consists of 21 governors, 40 senators and 193 representatives, make up about a third of the superdelegates.
Many of the remaining 463 convention delegates are establishment insiders who get their status after years of donations and service to the party.

And then there are dozens in the DNC member category who are registered federal and state lobbyists...

When you remove elected officials from the superdelegate pool, at least 1 in 7 of the rest are former or current lobbyists registered on the federal and state level, according to lobbying disclosure records.

– From the ABC News article: The Reason Why Dozens of Lobbyists Will Be Democratic Presidential Delegates"
"When it comes to presidential primaries, there isn’t a whole lot of “democracy” in the Democratic Party.

Last year, The New York Times published an article examining the American attitude toward the question of money in politics. This is what it found:

Americans of both parties fundamentally reject the regime of untrammeled money in elections made possible by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling and other court decisions and now favor a sweeping overhaul of how political campaigns are financed, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll.

The findings reveal deep support among Republicans and Democrats alike for new measures to restrict the influence of wealthy givers, including limiting the amount of money that can be spent by “super PACs” and forcing more public disclosure on organizations now permitted to intervene in elections without disclosing the names of their donors...

You might think the supposedly “liberal” Democratic Party would take this sort of thing to heart, but you’d be wrong. Not only is the super delegate system intentionally undemocratic, but a remarkable 9% of superdelegates are actually lobbyists."
And guess where a large number of these superdelegates have committed themselves, for many as early as before Iowa and New Hampshire..

Yep.. That old corrupt, rotten fucking bitch Hillary... The Establishment candidate and used-repeatedly Wall Street whore; the political syphilitic

And that is how the Democratic Party controls democracy.

The Democratic Party used to not be like this.. people like Bernie Sanders were the majority.  Then millions of Dem voters sold their political souls to those God-Damn Clintons in 1992 and from then on, the old Democrat party of the past was forever dead

No coincidence that Clinton was the first Democrat President since Woodrow Wilson where the quality of their lives for blacks was made Worse.  But don't tell that to all the welfare Negros passionately behind that evil cunt Hillary when they should be supporting Sanders.

And from that immoral, unethical Bill Clinton, the Democrat party is now as Wall Street beholden as the rotten Republicans always were, and now when people vote, its like choosing the best potato chip:  Lay's or Ruffles? (Both owned by Frito Lay)
