Before we allow Hillary Clinton to be ordained as the Democratic primary winner we may want to consider some facts.
The primary season is about over. Now come the voters. They might decide who goes on to the general election but it will be the result of the caucuses in Washiington State. Yes kiddies your vote does not count in this state. The primary which you would think you, the voter will decide who you want to represent you is nothing more than a million dollar straw poll. Who pays for this poll you ask? YOU AND I. Ouch!
The system in this state allows the party to pick it's candidate,through the caucus system, not the Voters. When I learned this I cried "Foul" but it's just the way it has been set up here. For more information you might try and "Wiki" it.
Enough of my not so educational rant.
Yes the voters will vote, but for the candidates that we are presented with by the power structure.
Hillary Clinton has the support of the Democratic Party leadership and has taken millions of dollars from corporate special interests to fund her national campaign.
Mit Romney has millions of dollars to run a national campaign.
Mike Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, is thinking about running as an
independent. He is reported to be worth 20 billion dollars.
All three can and do have the best chance to buy the presidency. It is a most undemocratic advantage over most Americans.
Maybe someday the people will rise up and rid the system of this corruption and set up a fair system so that anyone qualified will have a chance to be president.
A system that will recognize lobbying as bribery and outlaw the lobbyists and special interests from buying endorsements, media, staff and smothering the political process with millions of dollars. This shuts-out most qualified Americans from running for public office, the system where all candidates have a level playing field to compete.
Public financing only! No private or special interest money allowed. Free and equal media access to let the people know who they are and what policies they will fight for as President.
A system that will give us a President free from indebtedness to corporate interests.
Maybe then such a president can honestly in good conscience represent the best interests of “We the People”.
