What Is Democracy In America?
Both the Republican National Committee and its counterpart, the Democratic National Committee, appear to be acting against the precepts of a democracy.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “democracy” is defined as “a form of government in which people choose leaders by voting.”
The RNC Does Not Believe
Apparently the RNC’s leader Reince Priebus and his committee as well as the DNC’s leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her committee, are unaware of the latter part of that definition — “in which people choose leaders by voting.”
The RNC is furiously trying to come up with a campaign to deny Donald Trump the chance of being their nominee for President of the United States. This is despite the fact that he has the most delegates to date based on people’s votes, and they will try to deny him, even if he has the 1,237 delegates needed for the nomination.
Neither Does the DNC
The Democrats seem to be even more adamant in trying to eliminate any pretense that their race for the nomination is anything more than a giant sham, with the odds stacked against anyone not named Clinton.
The Democrat nominee has to garner 2,383 delegate votes, and as of today, Hillary has 1,243 pledged delegates, and Bernie Sanders has 980. But the Democratic Party also has made sure that Clinton has 469 “superdelegates,” while Sanders has only 31.
This gives Clinton a total of 1,712 delegates, while Sanders has 1,011. Even with the conniving DNC working overtime to make her the nominee, there are still 2.042 delegates available.
Why “conniving,” you may ask. The DNC knew that both Billary and Hillary had worked the Black scene during the years, so they were quite pleased that many early primaries took place in Southern states, or states with heavily Black populations. Hillary took an early lead when she won more delegates in South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
It is estimated that the 712 “superdelegates” represent 15 percent of the total. They include President Obama, Joe Biden, 239 Democratic members of the House and Senate, 21 sitting governors, 437 DNC members, and a questionable category known as “distinguished party leaders.”
The voters in primaries or caucuses do not choose these delegates, but “superdelegates” have an opportunity to elect the party’s nominee only because they are members of the elite upper echelon of Democrats.
The RNC and DNC Together
Finally, with all of the acrimony shown now and will be shown during the general election campaign, there is a movement that both parties are working on in obtuse harmony. Sadly, that is to obliterate Webster’s definition of “democracy.”
The Voices of the People
One woman said that although she doesn’t like Trump’s attitude towards women and minorities, she will vote for him because he was a good businessman.
Another voter told a television reporter that she’s voting for Hillary because Bill called her, not understanding that it was a Robocall. Another woman echoed her choice of Hillary, because she remembers what good Bill did while in office.

Picture President Hillary sleeping with Bill as he whispers policy in her ears, but only on nights when he isn’t sleeping with a female or male intern.
