"Super Delegates"

They are sort of like the "Electoral College" for the Dem Party. If any upstart candidate gets too many delegates during the primaries, the Carville/McCollough types can bank on a huge pool of insider DNC-directed hacks to get behind their candidate (hillary) in the convention.

This, coupled with huge differences in war-chests, ties to mass media (to exclude people from debates) and state Party machinery (to change the rules and eliminate candidates' names from the ballot), and non-verifiable, hackable voting machines are some of the many ways that the will of the people can be circumvented. All leading to apathy, low voter turnout, and a continuation of the status quo (for the most part).


Now, aren't you all glad that we've massacred 100's of thousands of Afghanis and Iraqi's and sent so many American troops to their deaths in order to defend our glorious Democracy?
Again, this has little to do with political preferences, it is about whether or not people like any of us should be allowed to have a voice, to have a say in what happens with our tax dollars, etc.

U.S.A! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

Where's the puke bucket?

We need to find another way.

I am with you 100%. Not only have we killed many innocent people, but we have sewed the seeds of war in maby other countries. We borrow 10 billion from china nd give it to Pakistan, whos government used that money to over throw a democratically elected leader.

We give 7 mission a day to Israel to keep its occupation of Palestine going, all while at the same time giving guns and money to the Arab states that oppose Israel.

AIPAC is the largest lobby in washington, and they have such a hold on our leaders that our voice is completely drowned out by the promise of wealth and power.

Take for instance Tony Blair, he ran the UK into the ground, supported the unjust war in iraq, and has been complicit in the continued opression of those in occupied Palestine. And just the other day, he was given a cushy new job with a huge bonus at J.P Morgan. That same J.P Morgan , who was one of the founders of The Council on Foreign Relations.

Our world is on the fast track to NWO, and it is scaring the hell out of me. It seems people are scared to name our countries enemies, and affraid to name our leaders who are complicit in their actions.

The constitution warns us of the price of our apathy, and subsequently we have lost our voices.

Ahh I'm rambling, sorry, I've been pretty pissed off all day about the turn our democratic process has taken. But I'm not going to take it sitting down! Thanks for your posts. Glad to see some discourse around here!
