The Democratic Party is having the most undemocratic election in the history of the nation and the beneficiary is Hillary Clinton.
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was expected to win the Michigan primary, but came up 1.5 percent short, losing to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders Tuesday night 49.8 percent to 48.3 percent.
That victory gave Sanders a 65 to 58 advantage in pledged delegates from Election Day. But that’s not the whole story.
The Democratic Party has “superdelegates” in each state, party elites and elected officials whose votes count the same as pledged delegates, but are unbound by primary results. These superdelegates are free to vote for whomever they wish, free to ignore the will of voters in their state.
Michigan has 17 such superdelegates, and of those who have publicly stated their intentions, Hillary Clinton has the support of 10 of them. The remaining 7 have not yet made their decision.
The same thing happened in New Hampshire …
… and every other state Bernie has won.
Guess what Democrats? Your votes don’t count. The Democratic National Committee gets to decide who the Democratic nominee is, you don’t even have to show up. It doesn’t matter if you do.
The Democratic Party is run by the DNC just like the Soviet Union was run by the Soviet Central Committee. Come to think of it, their policies are about the same too.
