Super Duper Tuesday

CoverStory_020_WSX020116

 

Tomorrow is an important day in both the Republican and Democratic Primaries.  A win in Ohio and Illinois for Bernie will enable his campaign to continuue most likely into June.  Even though he has little hope of winning the nomination, by continuing to accumulate delegates by earning them the hard way, by the vote of the American people rather than Super Delegates paid by lobbyists and SuperPAC’s funded by the establishment, he is able to continue his revolution.  He has already forced Hillary to go left of her opinions of certain issues, and that will only continue as he is able to stay in the race.

2016-election

On the Republican side, the stakes are much higher.  Both Rubio and Kasich have no hope of a path to the nomination, even if they win their respective home states.  But with Rubio down by as much as 22% and Kasich basically tied with Trump in an open primary in Ohio, both candidates are gasping their last breath.  Rubio sounds exhausted and defeated to me these last few days and Kasich has resorted to letting Romney travel around with him today- not endorsing Kasich mind you- just telling the people of Ohio to vote for him.  Give me a Break! Did Romney not learn from his speech a few weeks ago that America does not want his opinion.  I honestly believe the establishment has plans to parachute him in at the convention. I believe the establishment has promised all the candidates- Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich they will have a CONTESTED convention and told each of the three that they are “their man”.  But in reality, they hate Cruz would never have him as “their man”.  And they know that both Rubio and Kasich will have no delegates and therefore not have to be considered.  So Romney and his narcissistic self really believes he will “save the party”.  How wrong he is.  That is why Trump needs to sweep tomorrow and continue to gain followers.  If he wins Ohio, Kasich says he will drop out.  If that happens, Trump can win the required delegates needed to have the 1237 entering the convention.  At that point, it would be difficult for the party to pull off their plan.  They would have to change the rules and would never get the Trump votes and forever split the party.  I say they wouldn’t go that far, but in reality I don’t know.  They are willing ot lose the election, so they may be willing to destroy the party.

Trump is not a racist.  There is no proof of him being a racist,  yet the media wants you to believe his racism is the cause of the PAID protestors of George Soros funded groups like MoveOn.org causing violence at his rallies.  CNN interviewed the man who rushed the stage at the rally this past Saturday as if he was some type of hero.  Trump’s oppononents are blaming him for the vioence rather than condemning the protesters for preventing Trump his First Amendment right to Free Speech.

By continuing to single Trump out and blaming him for things beyond his control, the media is only fueling his supporters.  Like it or not, the man is bringing both Independents and Democrats to the Republican Party.  I do not see any other Republican candidate doing this nor have I ever seen a candidate in the party do this.  This is what the party needs, yet since Trump is not “establishment” and therefore a controlled puppet to special interest groups,  he cannot be the nominee.  Look at the lengths the party is going to to avoid a Trump nomination.  They are throwing away the General Election in order to prevent Trump from getting into the White House.  Why??? Ask yourself- why in the hell would the RNC spend millions of dollars destroying their frontrunner’s reputation with so much on the line in the General Election with Supreme Court Nominations? there has to be an “establishment” that includes BOTH parties.  They want you to believe it is Republican vs. Democrat but in reality it is “establishment” vs. the people.  America is an oligarchy and electing Trump as President in 2016 (or Bernie for that matter) is the only way to expose the establishment and end oligarchy and bring government back to the people.

I believe Bernie Sanders had little to do with the protests in Chicago on Friday night.  MoveOn.org PAID protesters were given Bernie signs as pitting Bernie against Donald works well for the establishment.  The TRUE Bernie protesters were there, but they were peaceful and not violent. Just my opinion……

Washington is Rigged

I just heard on Fox News that the RNC would rather lose the election to Hillary than have Trump win, should he secure the nomination and prevent a contested or brokered convention.  This is what I have thought for some time.  The “establishment” that controls Washington is not affliated with only the Republican Party.  The “establishment” is controlled by the lobbyists and special interest groups that elect the congressmen, senators, and President both Republicans and Democrats.

The Democrats have the Super Delegegates that ensure their nominee (in this case Hillary) secures the nomination.  The RNC will meet in April and I am certain they will make new rules if there is any way Trump has not secured the nomination.  trumpabcnews

This is wrong.  America is no longer a Democracy or a Republic.  We are an Oligarchy plain and simple. Controlled by the elite class and favoring the elite class.  Trump (and Bernie) both threaten this system as they are both funding their campaigns without special interest groups, Super PAC”s, etc.  This scares the HELL out of the Washington “establishment”. For the past 40 years nothing has been accomplished in Congress, no matter what the candidates promise their voters.  Obama promised Change and did not deliver.  Voters brought in new members to Congress and the Senate only to have promises once again not delivered.  People are angry and sick of broken promises made by politicians.  Democrats and Rebublicans alike- people who have never affliated with a party are angry.  And people want change.  Our middle class is shrinking by the day, jobs and companies are moving overseas costing American’s jobs.  Obama Care has forced many companies to cut hours to part time and forced many people to work several jobs just ot make ends meet.

The “establishment” ignored Trump for many months thinking he would go away.  They put millions of dollars in their golden boy Jeb only to have him perform miserably and ultimately drop out of the race.  They then pinned their hopes on Rubio, but he also has not met expectations, and will most likely lose his home state of Florida come Tuesday. Mitt Romney has gone on National television to tell voters they need to stop Trump.  George Soros has funded groups such as MoveOn.org and BLackLivesMatter to protest Trump’s rallies and ultimately stopped the rally in Chicago on Friday night.  And Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich blame Trump for the violence? Give Me  A Break!!! To not stand up for Trump and his 1st Amendment Rights and instead use this to try and boost your failing campaign’s is pathetic!

I hope Trump sweeps on Tuesday.  I feel that if this isn’t won outright the RNC will undermine the will of the people to fit their agenda.  And if that happens I believe their will be a split in the Republican Party that may never be able to be repaired.  The RNC needs to back the people of their party.  I hope they realize this.

Preserving the First Amendment

When protesting prevents free speech rather than preserving the right to free speech, we have a problem.  Trump having to cancel his rally in Chicago due to protesters brought in by the activist group MoveOn.org.  Now the Republican candidates are blaming Trump for these disruptions and protests.  Are you kidding me???

I cannot believe the lengths the establishment is taking in order to try and bring Trump down. I find it interesting that Soros has also funded Rubio so in effect by blaming Bernie for the MoveOn.org protests, they are also fueled by the establishment in the GOP. America is waking up and hopefully this election will bring the White House back to the people. Protests where free speech is denied aren’t protests. The fact Trump can’t speak for more than 2 or 3 minutes at a rally without being interrupted is a big part due to the GOP calling on anti Trump people to do anything in order to keep him from being the nominee. For these same sleazy politicians (Cruz and Rubio) to blame Trump is preposterous.
Trump Rally’s are quickly becoming hotbeds for Ferguson type protests- brought on by activist groups disguised as Bernie supporters for the most part. When asked in Chicago what they wereprotesting many refused to answer on camera. It is a sad day in America when today’s youth can be enticed by a social media FaceBook page to come out and cause disruption and not know really what you are protesting. In Ohio yesterday a man stormed the stage and had to be brought down by secret service.  I am becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of Trump as well as the attendees at his rallies.

Donald Trump has the right to speak and be heard.  Protestors should not be allowed to disrupt his speeches.  Those that do should be arrested.  I feel this is the only way this type of behavior will stop.  If MoveOn.org does things to undermine the election, they should be charged criminally.  If protestors cause injury to police, they should be criminally charged.  Protesting in America has become incresingly more violent and out of control.  MoveOn.org has promised these types of protests will continue and increase in number as the general election draws closer.  This is what has happened due to protests in Ferguson and Baltimore being allowed to get so out of control.  Police in this country are afraid to arrest the protestors because the law is on the side of the protestors.  Groups such as MoveOn and BlackLivesMatter have bought peaceful protesting to a level of violent, angry, diruptive protesting.  And that scares the hell out of me.

MoveOn.Org= George Soros=Rubio

moveonchicago

George Soros is funding MoveOn.org.  George Soros is also supporting Marco Rubio’s (and Bernie Sanders) campaigns.  MoveOn.org was largely responsible for the protest resulting in Donald Trump cancelling his rally in Chicago last night amid concerns for safety of all involved. How is this okay? Using your right to free speech in order to supress a candidate’s right for free speech is fair and just? What is going on with this country? For Rubio to come out saying Donald Trump is basically responsible for the protests due to his rhetoric is laughable.  His buddy George Soros is spending millions of dollars to make sure the Republican frontrunner is not the nominee, including the protest in Chicago, but he isn’t part of the problem? Give me a break!!

Protesting has become out of control.  What happened to African Americans during the civil rights movement in the 1960’s was wrong.  People peacefully protesting- sitting in diners or in the front seat of buses is not the kind of protesting that is happening today.  The protesters I have seen lately are not being civil and should not be allowed to use violence and intimidation in order to achieve their desired outcome.  Police should be allowed to arrest anyone who throws a rock at the officer, defies an officer’s orders to get out of traffic, or causes damage to any private property.  Yet that is not what I see when I watch video footage of these protests on TV.  I see officers being pelted by rocks, stores looted, traffic backed up for miles, events cancelled due to safety concerns, and very few arrests.  I see this as a sign of officers not being backed when they do make arrests- instead being put on trial or let go and loss of pension.  Letting protesters not face consequences fo rthier actions has led to increased violence at protests and less interference by police officers when these violent acts occur.

As a former middle school teacher I am aware how important classroom management is to effective teaching.  Not enforcing classroom rules for expected behavior quickly results in an unmangeable classroom.  If the rules aren’t enforced, the students quickly learn that they can disrupt learning with no consequences. Students who have not mastered the content will disrupt the class in order to divert attention away from the fact they do not know the content of the lesson.  I feel this is what has happened with protesters in this country.  We have allowed the protesters to “not follow the rules”.  They do not face the consequences of yesterday when they pelt police officers and destroy businesses.  When these acts of violence are shown on TV, people see that this behavior is “acceptable” and it fuels these protests even further.  Unless we reign in what we deem acceptable and punish those who commit acts of violence, it will only get worse.  With summer approaching and people out of work and upset, it could get really ugly.  I don’t think this country has been so divided since the 60’s and it scares the hell out of me. The RNC convention in Cleveland this summer could become a hotbed for activists and protesters and a dangerous place to be considering how protests are going these days.

I hope Trump’s rally in Ohio goes off without a hitch.  I hope the protest in Chicago was a one time thing.  I hope I’m right……….. I am truly scared of what is going on with this Republican campaign as well as what is happening with the divisions occuring in America across both racial and economic lines.  I believe Trump truly wants to unify the country and has shown this by bringing many Independent and democratic voters to the Republican Party.  How are Rubio, Cruz, and Kasich showing they want to unify? The don’t even want to unify their own party for goodness sake.  Rubio telling his supporters in Ohio to vote for Kasich….. Has that even ever happened before? Who does that? If Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich think the answer to their “problem” is a contested or brokered convention they are COMPLETELY out of touch with the American voter.  What is going on now is dirty politics, and Trump supporters will not stand idely by while their candidate gets the nomination taken away at the convention.  These Trump supporters will not jump on the RNC train.  They will stay home or vote for the Democratic candidate (which I hope to be Bernie Sanders- another candidate getting the shaft by the establishment of the party and their “super delegates”).

These are only my opinions, and I am only one voice.  But I feel the need to express my feeling during this important time in our country.  I feel like I have been lied to my whole life by a government masquarading as a “democracy” but really exisitng as an oligarchy benefiting only the elite.  I feel this election is the best chance our country has to be run by someone NOT selected by the establishment and therefore not tied to special interest and big donors.  This can only happen though, if the American people are educated on what is really going on- not what the establishment and media want you to believe.  People need to vote and have their vote count.  Not discarded as “the wrong vote”, just because it doesn’t support the views of the establishment.  It’s not that I agree with everything Trump says.  But I believe that the actions of the RNC are despicable and disgusting.  I would imagine others feel the same.  Trump deserves to be treated fairly by his party- my gosh- he’s the frapping frontrunner for goodness sakes! I don;t see how any other candidate has a better chance of beating Hillary/Bernie in the fall.  Ted Cruz is not appealing to the masses.  All he has going for him is he isn’t Trump and has racked up some delegates by using this “I am the only one who can beat Trump” platform.  do thousands attend his rallies? No. Is he liked by his fellow congressman? No. Is he a unifier? Hell No! So why is he such a “great” candidate?? I believe the RNC has no intentions of having Cruz get the nomination.  They will try and parachute a “Mitt Romney type” in I believe.  but I also believe this will be a major blow to the party if not the end of the party.  Just my opinion.

Next Tuesday will prove to be a monumental day for American politics.  Can Trump pull off wins in both Florida and Ohio, effectively allowing him to potentially win outright? Or will Kasich win Ohio making it difficult to win outright? Will Sanders pull another upset like he did in Michigan, creating more momentum for his campaign? I know I will be watching!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Ben Carson Endorses Trump

Ben-Carson-Trump

http://thelibertarianrepublic.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Ben-Carson-Trump.jpg

Dr Ben Carson’s endorsement of Trump today at a conference in Palm Beach was a pivotal point in the Republican Primary in my opinion.  In his remarks, Dr. Carson spoke to the fact this election was mean to be decided BY THE PEOPLE and the fact the establishment was trying to take that away.  This is a big reason I support Trump.  I do not believe it is in anyway beneficial to the Republican party to spend MILLIONS of dollars in negative campaign ads against your frontrunner, when all this does is hurt your chances in the General Election in November.  How is it beneficial for all candidates to stay in the race, just to ensure Trump does not get the delegates needed to secure the nomination?  Mitt Romney going on TV to tell the American people to vote Rubio in Florida, Kasich in Ohio, and whoever has the best chance to beat Trump in every other future contest left me completely speechless.  How can a former LOSING candidate refuse to support any candidate, yet speak to the people to splinter the party- all because you and your “establishment” don’t like the people’s choice.  To me that is just downright dirty- not just dirty politics- but lacking in integrity and character as a person.

Ted Cruz has spoken repeatedly that he is the only one that can “beat Trump”.  He also claims to be the only candidate that can beat Hillary come November.  I have reasearched polls that indicate otherwise.  Cruz is not winning in the majority of remaining states.  In states in the Northeast such as New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, he finishes a dismal 3rd or even 4th place.  Northeaterners don’t like Ted.  He is also behind Trump in states like California, Illinois, and Wisconsin.  Even if Kasich and Rubio somehow stay in the race after next Tuesday, Cruz is not going ot automatically get all their votes.  Trump is also pulling people from the Democratic Party as well as Independents to his team.  Cruz cannot do this- or has yet to thus far.  Cruz isn’t even winning the Evangelical vote- Trump is.

Cruz is only getting votes because people don’t want Trump.  Many “supporters” are not fans of Cruz, they just feel he is “the lesser of two evils”. Trump supporters are H-U-G-E fans! They are enthusiastic about their candidate and are excited about the changes he can bring to Washington.  What is Cruz’s record in Washington? Not of getting things done- that’s for sure.  Trump gets things done- that’s why people like him.  Trump isn’t controlled by big donors (Cruz has two families that have given $10 and$15 million to his campaign as well as Super PAC’s he is indebted to) since he has financed his own campaign.  Trump hasn’t spent millions of dollars on attack ads, yet the barrage of ads aimed to derail him last week were ineffective in stopping a win in Michigan.  While his numbers in Florida aren’t as high as they were, he is still beating Rubio in Florida.  Even with the nonstop attack ads running 24/7.  I live in Tennessee and witnessed these ads played before our election- they are nasty and mean and played constantly- but only fueled my anger at the establishment and the dirty tricks they are willing to play in order to keep Washington under their control.

The establishment is not only rich Republicans.  The establishment is the elite in both parties that control Washington.  This is why nothing is ever accomplished.  The only hope our country has of breaking free of establishment control is the election of an outsider.  America has woken up.  It is evident in both parties with the rise of Bernie Sanders who is a self proclaimed Socialist! But he isn’t controlled by the establishment, is whistle-blowing on the corruption of Wall Street and Washington. America needs to wake up and realize what is happening.  We are on the verge of a revolution in America.  The fact opposing governments are coming out to declare their hatred of Trump only solidifes the argument that Trump won’t play the games theother President’s have.  Trump is right- other countries are constantly taking advantage of our weakness.  In everything from Trade to Foreign Policy to Terrorism strategies.  China is killing us in Trade, Iran got the deal of a lifetime, and the Christain executions by ISIS isn’t even allowed to be considered genocide.  Nowonder forein leaders don’t want Trump elected.

Why doesn’t Jeb Bush support a candidate.  Same with Romney.  The fact the Establishment cannot back a candidate yet feels it appropriate to attempt to destroy the frontrunner with millions of dollars in attack ads just because you don’t want him makes absolutely no common sense.  The only reason I can come up with is one I didn’t want to believe.  Washington is corrupt and will do ANYTHING to prevent an outsider from taking control of the White House.  Even if that means losing probably the most important Presidential Election in over a century.  The Supreme Court nominations that will occur during the next administration will prove monumental in decades to come.  It makes absolutely no sense that the Republican Party would sabotage their front runner whithout having a candidate to back.  If they think a brokered convention and a parachute candidate such as Romney is the answer, their heads are so far in the sand they might actually see China!

I am eager to see what happens on Tuesday. Rubio just came out and said for supporters to vote for Kasich in Ohio. Classy Marco- I love the fact you refuse to drop out- even when people are begging you to for the sake of the party.  When you have candidates staying in the race ONLY to prevent the frontrunner from amassing enough delegates to prevent a contested convention, you have a problem within your party.  When former “establishment” candidates” refuse to endorse a candidate, while “outsider” candidates such as Fiorina and Carson are supporting candidates, you have a problem.  The problem is Washington and the fact America wants an outsider.  By refusing the people their choice, you will only fuel their anger.  Trump supporters will not change their vote- and many undecided will make their decision based on the fact the “establishment” is trying to control the election.  It is my hope that the delegates are secured prior to the convention in July.  It is my hope that Trump continues to garner support form people who are tired of Washington elite controlling our country.  People who believe elections should be decided by the people- not just the elite class.  People who are tired of living in an Oligarchy and want to see change in Washington- not just talk about change.

We shall see what happens…….

Feelin the Bern…..and The Donald

Wow! Bernie Sanders upset Hillary Clinton yesterday in the Michigan Primary where he was supposedly down by double digits.  There is definately a different feel to this years election in both parties.  The American public is fed up with Washington and the lies they have told us for years.  Promises made during campaigns but never kept, promises to make life better for the middle class when instead the middle class is shrinking by the day, while the rich get richer and reap the tax benefits afforded only to those who have money.

Wins by both Trump and Sanders in Michigan send a clear message to Washington.  Only problem is, is Washington even listening? It seems that for so long they believed they could fool the American public into voting for them, and then abandoned those supporters once in office. Only one problem- America is waking up- in recent congressional elections, Americans have been voting out incumbents.  This should have been a wake up call, but I honestly don’t think it was.  Washington wasn’t ready for the TrumpTrain or the Feelthe Bern movement.  They didn’t believe two campaigns funded without wealthy donors or SuperPACs could survive this far into the campaign- much less be performing so well.  The Democrats are using the SuperDelegate count already- when they don’t come into play until the convention in July, to make Hillary look like she has an unstoppable lead.  I believe this is a joke and should not even be allowed, but I am not in charge nor is my opinion asked for… It just seems we should be using actual voter data rather than future data that isn’t in play yet.

What about Marco??

Rubio got ZERO delegates last night.  NONE! Yet he vows to press on- vowing he will win his home state of Florida (where he is behind Trump) and reenergize the voters for his campaign.  Are you kidding me??? This guy’s numbers are so dismal I think Ben Carson received more votes than he did last night. I would think that if Marco dropped out, Cruz could win the state, since he is campaigning there.  But if Marco stays in the race, I don’t really see him winning with Cruz taking some of the anti-Trump votes and Trump’s numbers being so high in the sunshine state.  Would Marco drop out if he was promised the VP position under Cruz? I think it comes down to this: Will Marco sacrifice his political career for a chance to win Florida (odds of winning I liken to winning the lottery at this point but I could be wrong) OR will he drop out for “the good of the party” and potentially have a chance to be VP of the USA?

I would think the answer would be an easy one.  Rubio is young- has a whole life ahead of him to further his career- VP is a natural stepping stone to the Presidency.  But politicians are rather narcissistic and I believe he won’t quit- he will trudge on, probably ruining both his career and contribute to the splintering of the GOP.

When all this is over what will be left of the GOP? Will there be a contested or brokered convention that many seem as inevitable given the current delegate count and refusal of candidates to drop out of the race? Refusing to consolodate candidates results in dividing the delegates, which almost certainly ensures noone will be able to get the required 1237 to secure the nomination. Way to go GOP! I especially liked Mitt Romney’s Trump bashing the other day.  I am being totally sarcastic as I was actually disgusted.  To think I voted for this man in 2012 (after voting for Obama in 2008 and being disappointed over the next 4 years).  I don’t believe his opinion is warrented in a race he is not involved in.  Romney’s speech just angered me and fueled my desire to get an outsider in Washington.  I hope it did the same for many others- Why does Romney feel we need him to tell us how to feel about a candidate? That’s the elitism persona of the GOP that makes the party unable to reach across the aisle to get voters.  Trump is getting these voters because he does not talk down to his constituents.  He talks about issues facing the middle class.   He doesn’t sugar coat things, but that is his way.  He speaks the language of the people and doesn’t back down when pressed on issues.

Next Tuesday will tell a lot.  Will Democrats continue to Feelthe Bern? Will Rubio still be in the race? Will Kasich win Ohio? Will the anti-Trump ads be effective enough to secure a Rubio win in Florida? Will any candidate on Wednesday morning still be in a position to get the required 1237? Will Republican voter turnout continue to surpass all prior years? Will Democrats become interested and turn out in greater numbers than previous states? Will the Hillary email scandal continue to have little effect or will it become a more pressing issue for the party? (the RNC filed suit today to get her State Department records released). Should be interesting to watch!

Election Corruption

Presidential Elections in the United States of America are rigged- pure and simple. The election of 2016 has me totally convinced the people of our country are really not part of the “true” democratic process of our country.  The “establishment” of both parties want the public to believe they have a voice- have a vote, but in reality the delagates ultimately vote on the nominee of both the Democratic and Republican parties.

In the Republican National Convention, these delegates are not bound to their candidate IF, in the first round of voting, no candidate has the majority of the delegates needed to secure the nomination. Think about this for a minute…… The delegate for the candidate chosen by the people is not bound to continue to support this candidate after the first round of voting.  These delegates then become “free agents”, able to be “bought off” to vote for a certain candidate the establishment feels “worthy” to represent the party.  Just like congress and the rest of Washington, the wheeling and dealing will commence and the deep pockets of the establishment will almost surely result in the outcome desired by the party.  Or so the establishment wants it to go that way anyway.  In order to win,  a candidate needs more than populist support.  A candidate needs money, lots of it. A candidate also needs the resources of the party in order to launch a successful campaign against the Democratic Party and their establishment’s deep pockets. The establishment is banking on the fact it’s pockets are very deep and they will be able to win out in the end due to their power and influence over delegates and eve candidates in the election.

So far the two leading candidates in the GOP are enemies of the establishment.  Cruz is not liked- too conservative for the base they say.  Trump can’t beat Hillary and according to Mitt Romney (about as establishment as you can get- except for Jeb Bush but that didn’t play out the way they wanted it to) is a “phoney” and a “fraud”.  It doesn’t matter that Trump is bringing in Independents and Democrats into the party- even though that is exactly what the party has been asking for for years.  Trump isn’t indebted to the high paying donors and special interest groups that have controlled Washington I am guessing since day one.  I cannot think of another reason to be so against Trump.  Why destroy a party and guarantee a loss to the Democrats in November if not that? If you were to back the frontrunner  your party would at least have a chance in the General Election.  I mean Bernie Sanders is in the midst of his own revolution and bringing about the same enthusiasm as Trump.  Noone would have predicted a self proclaimed Socialist would have the support of so many.

But just like the GOP, the establishment has no use for a candidate that does not fit their agenda.  Sanders is exposing the corruption of Wall Street as well as the corruption in the party.  Calling on Hillary to release her speech transcripts from her talks to Goldman Sachs and other banks.  He isn’t even discussing the fact she has the FBI investigating her for the email scandal.  He doesn’t bring up Travelgate, Monica, Paula, Vince Foster,….. Which I would imagine a lot of his supporters are unaware of.  They still like him over Hillary- much to the surprise of the party leader.

Yet Hillary is the candidate the establishment wants to run in the General Election.  Does that seem kind of odd?? Why would you risk having a candidate with so much baggage- both past as well as present? The people are rallying around Sanders “feeling the Bern” across the country, yet the media does it’s best to spin it to Hillary’s favor.  They add in Super Delagates before they have cast their vote (Democratic Super Delagates can change their mind before the convention- it happened for Obama), they downplay Bernie’s wins and inflate hers.  Ultimately, they are just as sleezy as the GOP.

I am disgusted with the process on both sides.  What happened to the country created “by the people for the people”??? If the masses don’t really get to choose, then don’t make it seem like they do until their choice doesn’t agree with your agenda. I sense a revolution happening on both sides of the aisle- but not by the actual parties themselves.  this revolution is happening in the masses- the people want an outsider- someone not tied to the establishment.  But the establishment is doing everything it can to prevent this from happening.  House of Cards couldn’t have written a better storyline- except for the fact of how scary this is for our country.

Sanders is raising cash- he can stay in the race till the convention.  I hope he does and fights for a fair electoral process along the way.  Get the media to stop including Super Delagates in the count prior to the votes being cast would be a good way to start.  Continue to challenge the system and energize the base.

As for the GOP, tomorrow will tell a lot and by next Wedesday morning a lot more will be known.  Michigan, Ohio, and Florida are more important than ever before and rubio’s future lies with the state of Florida in my opinion.  I don’t see how he could stay on if he lost his home state- no matter how much the establishment wants him to be “their boy”.  His political future would be all but over if he continued to campaign after losing in Florida.  Same with Kasich and Ohio- although Kasich has a much better chance of winning Ohio than Marco has in the sunshine state.  But anything can happen- polls are nothing but manipulated data so an upset could happen. Trump has to keep momentum going his way- in the face of nonstop attack ads running in Florida paid for by the NotTrump people……. Not Cruz, not Rubio, not Kasich.  His own party establishment who has decided that even though the majority in their party wish him to be the nominee- that isn’t what the elite of the party want.  Therefore, they will do EVERYTHING within their power to tear him down- even if that means destroying their party, losing the election, losing the chance to nominate SCOTUS positions……. How is that a democracy????? How is that going to affect your voters who cast their vote for that candidate?? I am amazed at how out of touch with the “common voter” the GOP actually is.

Both parties are controlled by the establishment.  Both parties only care about special interest and lobbyists and the people who put them in office.  They are indebted to these people-basically owned by these people. Washington is Washington- run and controlled by the establishment to benefit the establishment.  Which is why nothing ever gets done.  Causes championed by candidates during elections never get the help they were promised during the campaign.  Our infastructure is crumbling, lead in the water in Flint Michigan is poisioning the residents there and has been for years.  Where is Washington??? Our country is literally falling apart but yet I don’t see congress or the President responding to this urgent matter.  Now what if this water crisis was happening in Washington DC? Or one of the wealthy Virginia suburbs that border DC? Maybe Congress needs to set up shop in Flint and live what the residents there are living for a month or two.  My bet is the problem would become an issue worth dealing with!
