(…Assuming Donald Trump WINS the presidency in 2016….)
I can only imagine what Hillary Clinton’s camp is thinking right now. This is an election that i think she assumed would be an easy win. Afterall… that Trump guy is crazy! Right?
Well.. Maybe Donald Trump IS crazy. Mabye he is a pathological narcissist. Maybe Donald Trump is a sexist and a biggot. But maybe the people of the United States would rather roll the dice with him than end up with someone who already has manipulated this election to be able to make it to the finals.
Had the democratic party actually LISTENED to their people instead of listening to who was giving the biggest payoff, and had Bernie Sanders win the primary like the American people wanted… We would NOT be in this unbelievable situation now.
This election should always have been between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. (Bernie would have swept the floor with Trump I would put money on it.) …But because Mrs. Clinton and her career politician moves, the entire democratic party is going to lose NOT ONLY President but also the Senate and Congress and the Supreme Court! Now i think if the big boys at the top behind Mrs. Clinton’s election would have taken their heads out of their asses and voted with the mindset of the people they are SUPPOSED to represent we would not be facing 4 years of Donald Trump running our country into a capitalist’s dream but have actual intelligence in the lead office with Bernie running the show. But alas… The people had to be the ones to send the message and unfortunately Mrs. Clinton’s camp made sure that Bernie was nowhere around when that time came and the people had to vote Trump cause they did not like the way Clinton corruptly does business.
Let us take this time and this upset in American Politics to really review why we are still using the system that is in place now. We need to remove not only Super Delegates but also the Electoral College. It is antiquated and does not clearly represent the people wishes. This is 2016. Why can the peoples popular vote not count as the votes for the country? I believe this country keeps it the way it is because it is very confusing and technically makes it so the American public does not have a voice. Only electoral college and super delegate’s have the power to be heard. We are told our vote counts but really it doesn’t. And it SHOULD!!!
I am thoroughly disgusted by politics all the way around at this time. The one chance that the big wig’s up there in charge could have showed the people that they were being heard, they go ahead and throw the election just to get their croney to be able to “keep her place as the next president”. Well the people didn’t want Hillary Clinton in office, and they would not listen, so instead the American people had no choice but to vote for the other candidate.
I am so angry with how Americans are STILL getting scammed by their own politicians who are suppose to be representing THEM! We need to repeal Citizens United which was passed in 2010. We need to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which ruled to allow unlimited political spending by corporations. This ruling said that it would be unconstitutional for limits to be placed on corporations because it would “limit how they could communicate, thus limiting their First Amendment rights”. And until that happens, it is only big money that is going to have much voice in our future elections… and we all know that it isn’t the people who have the power of big money. It is the corporations who have that luxury.
Before i shut up… let me take a minute and say that i think we should really think about what is happening to our country and our political system. I don’t feel like anyone really thinks that good candidates were given as an option after Bernie was bamboozled out. What is the future of America going to do if we can not be heard through our votes? Isnt it time for us as Americans start revamping the failing voting system that is 200+ years old?
Well tonight i think America was heard. Heard loud and clear. We are SICK of career corruption with politicians. We need to clean up house and rebuild it behind glass where the whole system is open for scrutiny. We need Sunshine type ordinances put in place to make the entire game of politics have to face oversight and transparency by the people who pay their salaries. …It seems all we have now is an industry that makes it legal to be a criminal. I know that corruption is going to always go hand in hand with politics but we can keep it to a limit. Make our politicians know we are watching them.
Mr (dare i say President) Trump, PLEASE dont screw us! (ALL of us!!) (if you are indeed the winner which i should state that as of now only 89% has been tabulated but Trump leads with 244 electoral votes to Clinton’s 215).
Now as for Mrs Clinton. My suggestion to you is to make Bill give you a foot rub and pour you a nice hot bubble bath so you can finally relax and get a good night sleep. You can sleep in too… seems tomorrow, you might have the day off … and the day after… and the day after that…. It will give you plenty of time to reflect on where you went wrong.
