Funny how people are so convinced that the Russians were able to manipulate voters but then refuse to see how their own party manipulates voters.
The party leadership controls who the super delegates are, the timing of the debates and the debate questions, controls the primaries and caucuses, controls who’s allowed to vote, and has connections in the media that allows them to control which candidates gets media coverage and which don’t—all of which came in to play in the 2016 primaries. That doesn’t even include the shenanigans that went on behind the scenes such as the hundreds of thousands of voters wrongly purged in NY or the CA primary workers who were wrongly trained to give voters registered as “no party preference” provisional ballots instead of the regular ballot as is the rule, or that those provisional ballots weren’t counted.
You honestly expect me to believe that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have nominated someone with a pro-corporate bent? Get real!
Can you imagine the reaction if a gay men treated a straight man the way the way some straight men thought it was okay to treat a woman “in good fun”?
Not to mention the DCCC released a memo saying candidates wanting funding had to promise not to badmouth the other candidates and then funded and released an opposition research memo on a progressive candidate that took quotes out of context for the sole purpose of smearing said candidate. Gotta love a group that violates the very rules they made.
Democratic candidates need to excite the voters and give them the hope that things will actually change in order for Dems and independent progressives to vote en masse. When people see the election as a choice between two evils, they’re far less likely to vote.
What’s the point of that question if not to try to guilt me into that “lesser of two evils” box that has allowed the Democratic leadership to put forth corrupt candidates? Do you honestly expect me to believe Hillary would be any less corrupt or any less of a chicken hawk? The two differences between Trump and Hillary are that she’s mentally stable and a Democrat. That means instead of Republicans ignoring how corrupt Trump is and Democrats complaining, the Democrats would be the ones ignoring the corruption.
There is a difference between calling out Obama for his roll in allowing corruption and torture to go unpunished and blaming everything on him. Can you dispute the facts this cartoon is based on?
Every bit as corrupt, but not quite as bad. The Dems are usually better on social issues so long as the issue polls well.
Correct, but when there’s evidence that there was a conspiracy against the candidate you supported and a former head of the DNC admits there was a conspiracy, there’s a pretty good chance it’s true.
And the Democrats are doing their best to make sure the Republicans get their way. Funny how just enough Democrats decide to vote along side Republicans to pass tax cuts and deregulation.
