Election 2016: Demagogues & Superdelegates
It seems we’ve soiled our diapers, collectively speaking. While the entire world bares witness to the rise of a popular demagogue in the United States, Google & Twitter faithfully ensure every moment of shame becomes part of our national record. And as grassroots contender Bernie Sanders destroys every notion of independent fundraising known to our democracy, trouncing Hillary Clinton $42M to $30M in February 2016 even as popular media forges her crown, drunk-on-power superdelegates like Howard Dean reveal that both parties are completely bankrupt.
What has become of us, rabbit?
As for the other candidates, there are none. Ted Cruz is Snidely Whiplash, a man who pursued his power all the way to the supreme court to ensure a woman served 16 years for a trivial crime & has pledged to destroy the progress of states that have legalized cannabis. Marco Rubio enjoys eloquence & youth but does not engender confidence with his one-liners & ephemeral accomplishments, he should do something before he proclaims he is something.
The common thread: arrogance. The demagogue, the queen, a jack boot thug with an untrustworthy smile & a record of persecuting little people, a snarky punk in a suit aping for the camera while repeating himself & making base insults at the demogague. On TV for all the world to see, remember & record. Not to mention all of the democratic superdelegates since they have been preordained as demigods that are not accountable to any constituants to ensure they represent us. A stupid mechanism from a party that sold its moral fiber to ensure a grassroots candidate could never be electable. The other money party, a dubious honor.
The only one of them that is humble, with a demonstrated record of tireless work for the common man is Bernie Sanders. Yet we hear on NPR & Fox: “Oh it’s Hillary”. United in arrogance & pundit fees, everybody agrees.
I do not.
I hate politics, I don’t want to follow it & don’t even like to vote. It involves politicians for one, and in our current system has very little effect. Remember, Bush won the election but Gore won the popular vote. Hillary’s crown is being engraved even as people pour into the streets to support Bernie. That’s simply not happening for Hillary. So you don’t see coverage of it on the popular media, but Google & Twitter reveal the truth.
That’s why there’s only one candidate I’m interested in for the prize, and that’s Bernie. I’ve never spent a dime on my life for a politcal candidate, that’s for rich people, until now. I’ve donated twice, $30 for Bernie, because he’s the only one that does not suffer from the common thread of arrogance. He’s clearly trying to do the right thing, and make the people that reaped the greatest rewards for our suffering help us get up & recover from having the highest incarceration, highest poverty, & highest price health care of any Westernized nation in history. Even if he doesn’t take the prize I’ll sleep better knowing I did the right thing: tried to effect change against injustice & level the cost of opportunity.
