The mainstream media has officially crowned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. “Hillary Clinton — former first lady, former U.S. senator, and former secretary of state — has become the first woman to capture a major-party nomination for president,” reports CNN.
MSNBC’s lead story today is, “How Hillary Clinton clinched.”
All over the media, the story is the same. The Democratic nominee is officially Hillary Clinton.
There is a problem with this, Hillary is not the nominee as of yet, this being true with the Republican nominee Donald Trump as well. This election year can be described as many things, but definitely not mundane…
Sanders is arguing that the super delegates do not vote until the convention, and he has been meeting with several of them, that may be willing to change their commitment if the American Democratic voter shows a desire for Bernie over Hillary.
“It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgement, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee’s clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of super delegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer,” says Michael Briggs, spokesman for the Sanders campaign. “Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on super delegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then. They include more than 400 superdelegates who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race.”
Hillary, wanting to be seated as first woman President without turmoil, Donald wanting to rip any republican apart that dares not bow down at the Trump alter have created more remorse, and more division not only in America, as we see with the clash of anti-so and so rallies, but a pure hatred for politicians from the grassroots to the urban byways in America. With near a 60% dislike of both supposed candidates, it is a time for great worry, and for a third party candidate, qualified or not, to take ownership of the Whitehouse for the next 4 years. As when the Whigs lost their way, we see Donald Trump destroying the Republican Party, leaving a new leader to carry the baton to a new and constitutional party. With Constitutionalist like Ted Cruz looking to make a difference in America, it is more than just a dream of a new third party to take over the once vigorous, but now empty halls of the Republican party. Then as Bernie “feel the Bern” Sanders makes inward roads in the Democratic Party, we see the collapse of the Democrats to a more liberal agenda party. If nothing more than the outsiders redefining politics as we once knew it, they have nothing to truly offer America, except more division, and monetary leveled hatred.Tags: Bernie Sanders democrats Donald Trump Hillary Clinton republicans Ted Cruz
