Super Tuesday is behind Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton. The democratic party continues to run to Hillary Clinton’s side to show support, and voters should be ashamed. Donald Trump dominated in the GOP primaries, and the United States is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The world is watching the primaries unfold, and many are scratching their heads.
I won’t go into great detail on the republican side of things, but can the United States people truly imagine a president that has total disregard for virtually anyone? Foreign affairs would be in shambles following a Trump presidency if the country isn’t pushed to the brink of war.
A win for Clinton would lead to perpetual flip flopping on topics.
Bernie Sanders is the only other candidate holding his weight in the democratic race, but the media dare not give him the publicity they give Clinton.
Clinton hasn’t just backtracked on topics, but she and her husband broke the law on Super Tuesday, not that you will find a smidge of it in the news. Candidates are not allowed to campaign within 150 feet of voters during the day of the primaries, but Bill Clinton was seen at three different voting centers in Massachusetts.
Bill Clinton was shaking hands of voters, signing autographs and he was even accompanied by Hillary Clinton supporter Marty Walsh, Boston’s Mayor. Both parties were violating the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s voting regulations. But that’s okay because they were “thanking polling workers.”
Clinton won’t get in trouble for this tactic, and there is little mention of her indictment potential.
You’ll find videos online of Clinton stating “I did not send classified emails from a private email account.” Interestingly, the State Department recently released 22 emails Clinton partook in on her private email account that were deemed “top secret.” An indictment should and could happen to Clinton, but it may not happen before November when she may or may not be running for president. It’s amazing just how little the American public actually cares about Clinton’s wrongdoing.
The democratic party has remained mum on the matter. A sense of faithfulness surrounds the democrats whenever Hillary’s name comes up, or maybe it is something else.
Maybe the democratic party is scared of the “establishment” falling down. The money free flowing into the pockets of the party. Bernie Sanders, the only democrat currently within arm’s reach of Hillary, has already warned the public of the establishment.
The Sander’s campaign topped $40 million in small donations in February, and democrats are scrambling to copy his success. The democrats don’t seem to understand that the success of Sanders comes from the promise of change.
Young democrats are flocking to Bernie Sanders while older democrats are flocking to Hillary’s side. Many remember a time when the economy was doing well under Bill Clinton, and a lot of democrats believe that Hillary had a hand in the success of her husband and made many of the decisions during his presidency. Whether this is true or not, we’ll never know.
One thing is certain: superdelegates, those pesky delegates that are part of the DNC, have primarily backed Clinton. Remove the superdelegates, and Sanders has 394 delegates to Clinton’s 577. Adding in the superdelegates, Sanders has 427 and Clinton 1,052.
Superdelegates have too big of a role in this year’s presidential race, so much so that the vote of the American public may not matter at all.
