WERE THE PEOPLE HEARD?
 
I hate when the very politicos who steal from us go on line with their lemministic followers and demand we vote for the lessor of two evils. You cannot bring about meaningful change by voting for the same old recycled candidates who have spent years screwing us.  The key is candidates who can be trusted.  If that happens we have a better chance for a large turnout.
 
DID NEW HAMPSHIRE SEND A MIXED MESSAGE ON THIS ISSUE OF HIGHER TURNOUT MEANING BETTER CANDIDATES?
 
Bernie Sanders with 95% of the precincts reporting holds at 60% to Hillary Clinton's 39%.  No one even six months ago could have imagined this.  The NH turnout was so massive.  Polls were kept open after closing, and police were controlling traffic jams on the highway as people were trying to get to the polls.  Based on this can we say a strong turn out lead to a new voice for the people?  Well unless you are a Hillary supporter. 
 
BUT DONALD TRUMP
 
While there was a strong record breaking turnout, 65% of the Republican voters rejected Donald Trump.  On the Republican side one could hypothesize that the larger turnout was caused by an anti-Trump swell.  But he still won. 
 
So did a record breaking voter turnout change anything?  No.  The election is rigged.  Although Bernie Sanders based on the popular vote has more delegates than Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton has Bernie Sanders left in the dust because of Super Delegates who defy the one man one vote concept and are accountable to no one.
 
So please, let's stop this nonsense you must vote to force change.  There will be no change until we change the rigged system. Our elected officials who rely on the rigged system to win will never vote for change.
 
We have become lazy.  In 1972, when Democrats were tired of the rigged system they rioted outside the Democratic Convention and forced change. Unless they are giving away a free meal I doubt many people will care to protest against the rigged system.
 
I increasingly find myself complicit in this corrupt rigged system by voting at all.  I am very close to demanding any candidate who wants my vote will have to denounce the Democratic Party and demand reform within the rigged system.  If you are unwilling to fight for the people, why should the people vote for you?  You got me.
 
Maybe in November I will just vote for all Independent candidates or small third party candidates.  Anything has to be better than the two party system we have now.
 
If Bernie wants to win this it is time he calls for an end to the Super Delegates.  If you think this is a Democratic thing only, the RNC has already called on the Super Delegates to be ready for a floor fight to keep Donald Trump from winning.  I do not like Donald Trump, although I understand why he is popular among U.S. Americans who are tired of the broken system.  But allowing Super Delegates to steal an election on the demand of the Party elders is many things, but not democratic.
 
THE STEALING OF THE ELECTION WITH SUPER DELEGATES SHOULD BE THE CENTRAL ISSUE OF THE CAMPAIGNS
