Here's Your Democratic Unity

The more the People and Bernie Sanders succeed, the more the Party screams for “Democratic Unity” behind the establishment candidate.

I don’t know about you, but I think the Establishment could use an education about what “Democratic Unity” means.

If the establishment were really fighting for Democratic Unity, the Party would be rallying behind the candidate who united the People, not trying to rally the people to unite behind the party.

To change a broken system, we have to address the root of the problem.

Senators and members of Congress refusing to do their jobs, the DNC promoting their own agenda, and corporate money in politics for starters. This country isn’t being run by elected officials protecting the rights of the people. It is being run by big corporations paying off members of Congress to pass policies that contribute to massive profits for the top 1%.

This is far more than just a presidential election.

This is a revolution to recover the democracy the establishment stole from us.

This week, I asked a member of congress how the People can help change a System that refuses to hear proposed policies that protect our constitutional rights.

Her response?

“Well, that’s a tough one. Next Question.”

That’s a tough one? In other words, don’t bother trying? Go back to sleep? The system can’t be changed?

That is just not an answer I am satisfied with. I have a better one; Vote them OUT!

No doubt it is going to be tough to eliminate a system of corrupt politicians. It is going to be tough to change an establishment that pursues its own interests over the interests of the people. And it’s going to be tough to change a corrupt election process that denies millions of registered independent voters their constitutional right to vote, despite the fact that the primaries are paid for with tax dollars.

Tough, but not impossible.

Statistically, if independent voters were included in the process, it’s likely the lead would be firmly in the hands of Senator Bernie Sanders.

Despite the current “lead” Hillary Clinton has in the primaries, she will not be able to clinch the nomination prior to the convention. The people have spoken, at least the people who have been allowed to participate have, and Bernie keeps winning state after state in the primaries.

Millions of people cannot be ignored forever.

Despite the best efforts of the establishment and the mainstream media to do just that, the Political Revolution is getting stronger and last I checked, ignoring a problem doesn’t solve the problem.

Our Democracy has been stolen from us. We want it back.

See you at the Contested Convention.
