Two-thirds of DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee members are corporate lobbyists or corporate consultants, including ten at-large DNC members appointed by DNC Chair Tom Perez.

Democrats are looking ahead to the second nominating ballot at the July Democratic National Convention, when superdelegates will be allowed to cast votes if no presidential candidate receives a majority of pledged delegates on the first ballot.

    What this does is take the burden of deciding of who to vote for off of our shoulders and have the adults in the room decide who and what is best for us…….. Even elections are no longer democratic and all you have to do is look and see it. If there is even a sincere and caring candidate for president, they will never get past the DNC. Forget Russia meddling in our elections, it is the DNC, as an corporate party wing, that has and will put on the fix for the ruling elite.

    That’s how the rigging is done…

    Just as the way campaign bribery mainly works is that the Big Money doesn’t buy votes directly but rather the campaign bribes and corporate media propaganda machine insures that only candidates inclined to “vote the right way” are selected, promoted and placed in office – and kept in line by threats of withholding that “aid” next election or hindering their ability to cash in upon leaving office…as Obama has done…

    Just to be clear, the Democrat-Republican, Whig, Democrat, Republican machines, owned and managed by the Ruling Class for their benefit, and our “elections” have NEVER been “democratic”.

    Democracy is anathema to the Owner/Donor Class in our Oligarchy.

    To paraphrase the excellent Scoop Nitzger, “You don’t like the system, go out and build a better one yourselves.”

  • The 🐍💵🎩 DNC is despicably corrupted by CAPITALISM. 👎😠
