You know, it really is a shame our last post before closing for summer-break could be misconstrued as sounding like sour grapes, but in our view, congratulating Hillary Clinton’s “historic milestone” would be tantamount to validating a fraud.
If you believe as we do, that even before the race started, the DNC establishment used its power and influence to scare off potential opposition by soaking up all the money, padding Hillary Clinton’s super-delegate account, while scheduling as few debates as possible during the oddest time periods, then you have to ask yourselves, what was Barack Obama thinking while this was going on? If you believe as we do, that the DNC did little in the way of voter registration drives because it knew most new voters entering the process would likely favor the Bernie Sanders message, again you’d have to ask yourselves, what did the President think about this?
Bottom line: If Barack Obama really was the Progressive minded Democrat America believed in, supported and voted for twice, there’s no way in hell he would’ve allowed Party elites get away with robbing Sanders, his supporters and by extension, the American people. There is no way in hell he could have looked the other way when a favorite had been picked, the rules were being bent and the deck stacked so blatantly against voters of his own ilk. And it’s no way in hell, a truly progressive minded Obama could’ve stood-by and watched his loyal followers and believers be conned into accepting lower than a living wage and endless college debt, while leaving those staring retirement in the face in the lurch of their lives.
