By Richard Rodriquez,
It really baffles me how the Democrats have rallied around their wounded candidate #WhichHillary.
Lowest favorability ratings ever for a candidate at this stage, an ongoing civil lawsuit for freedom of information act (FOIA) violations, an ongoing federal investigation on the miss handling of state secrets, the ongoing ‘little’ question why thousands of emails were deleted off the server she used for official government business (it’s obvious people if you think about it!), the non-release of her paid Wall Street speeches while saying she supports Wall Street reform (you understand why she’s not releasing them right?).
It’s truly baffling.
People are watching though….
I used to be very involved in the Democratic Party. I walked the streets door belling with now U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (WA), I worked hard for U.S. Senator Patty Murray (WA) (I still like her, she’s awesome!), I went to many Democratic conventions, and I’ve been an elected Democratic precinct person (actually had to fulfill my state constitutional responsibilities once!).
How the party got to supporting this wound candidate is really baffling.
All this while Bernie Sanders supports traditional Democratic values; the environment receiving top priority because it threatens our national security, free public university education, Wall Street reforms, healthcare for all citizens, increasing taxes on the rich, putting a stop to endless wars that deplete our national treasure and the lives of our youth.
Traditional modern democratic values.
I blame it on Debbie Wasserman, Chair of the democratic national committee (DNC). She used to work for Clinton.
It’s like Democrats have entered their own echo chamber.
Despite all the support Bernie Sanders has earned with millions of votes, the Democratic Party has denied Bernie supporters from ‘any’ representation on the important Rules Committee for the upcoming National Convention.
What’s with that?
People don’t like change if it impacts their powerbase. But that is exactly what this country needs right now; change in the powerbase.
We The People have to make this happen.
I support Bernie Sanders as the Democratic candidate for president.
I am not paid by anybody to say that.
It’s just the right thing to do.
Oh yeah, I vote.
