Democracy is Dead

As the New York Primaries come to a close, it’s difficult to call it anything short of a disgrace.

A system that intentionally undermines the vote of the people can not be called a democracy.

60,000 democratic voters “purged” from the system in Brooklyn alone in the last 5 months. 60,000! Polling places changed at the last minute, “glitches” in the voting machines that don’t allow a vote for Bernie Sanders, voting machines changing a Sanders vote to a Clinton vote, and democratic voter registrations mysteriously changed to independent voter status.  Not to mention redistricting, voter ID laws, superdelegates, and the fact that both republican and democratic parties are actually privately owned corporations (the democratic party contributes to HRC’s campaign).

I’ve got news for you; a democracy that suppresses and manipulates the vote of the people is NOT A DEMOCRACY.

A whopping 48,000 people showed up in support of Bernie Sanders in New York April 16th, 2016, outshining Obama’s astounding 24,000 attendees in 2008. There is no denying the phenomenal support there is for Sanders.

Unfortunately, there is also no denying the fact that the Democratic party is doing everything in their power to steal this election, not just from Bernie Sanders, but from the American People.

The American people including many underrepresented demographics are mobilized to take part in the political process in historically significant numbers this election. They are showing up to voice their support for their chosen candidate by voting, some for the very first time, and they are being met with a disillusioning truth about the sorry state of our government.

Disappointingly, the mainstream media has refused to cover the real news focusing instead on shoving their electoral favorite down our figurative throats, and the state of our nation becomes painfully and undeniably clearer as the party’s rig the primaries, and suppress the vote of the people to promote their own agenda state after state.

I’m not the first to say it, but this nation is ripe for a revolution and, in my opinion, it’s about time!
