To The Daily Sun,
The New Hampshire Democrat establishment went against the wishes of Democrat voters when they used their Super Delegate votes to give Hillary Clinton, despite losing by 22 percent, as many delegates as Bernie Sanders. The Democrat Party establishments in other states also went against their voters' wishes.
Now we see that Hillary Clinton installed her cronies in the, supposedly neutral, Democrat National Committee (DNC) to actively work for her and against her opponents. In a fair election, Bernie Sanders may well have received the votes needed to become the Democrat presidential nominee.
President Obama's team participated in this fraud against Democrat voters; they reviewed the lists of donors to be rewarded with prestigious appointments, no Sanders donors were included.
At the convention, the DNC worked to silence Bernie's supporters, limit their media coverage, and even exclude them.
The leader of the DNC's corruption, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was named an "honorary chairman" of Hillary's campaign and vows to continue fighting for Hillary.
Hillary Clinton tells us that she will make Wall Street work for Main Street. But, in the few years since Hillary Clinton was secretary of state she has earned about $15 million mostly from speeches given to Wall Street which has already pledged or contributed more than $48 million to help her campaign. Since Hillary won't release the speeches she gave to Wall Street, one wonders if she tells them what she tells us, that she will make them work for Main Street.
Hillary promises to solve the same problems that Democrat politicians have been promising to solve, but not solving, for decades. Public education is still poor but expensive. Colleges are exorbitantly expensive. Many graduates have large debts but nearly worthless degrees. Good middle income jobs are vanishing. Energy costs keep rising. Health care is more, not less, expensive. Taxes keep increasing. But, while most Americans struggle despite politicians' promises, the politicians and their special interest supporters keep doing better and better.
About 75 percent of the American people feel our country is going in the wrong direction and showed that by voting, against the wishes of the political establishments, for Bernie Sanders and for non-establishment Republican candidates. But the Democrat and Republican establishments fight, and as we see even cheat, to keep the power and wealth that their positions provide.
As long as the Democrat and Republican establishments are in power, the needs of the people will be low priority, only the wishes of their special interest supporters will be high priority. The Democrat establishment cheated Bernie Sanders to ensure that their candidate, Hillary Clinton, would win the nomination and advance their interests, not the peoples' interests.
