Politics 102

For an idea of how left-leaning socialists see their role in government, check out this article in today’s New York Times.

Don’t you just love political elitism? Don’t you just want to be a part of the ruling class? Oh God, I wish I could get in the club…

Here’s my favorite part: “The issues party leaders are grappling with, they said, include how to avoid the perception of a back-room deal that thwarts the will of millions of voters” (emphasis mine). It appears that Party (capital P) leaders don’t want to avoid a back-room deal — they only want to avoid the perception of one.

Has anyone taken the time to review how the democrat primary process works? I doubt it…that would require effort that would burst the Kool-Aid induced bubble of socialist euphoria. If the tone of that last sentence seems a bit harsh, rest assured that it is — deliberately. If one supports a particular party or candidate, and one doesn’t have a clue as to what that candidate or party stands for, or how that party operates, then it is fair to be harsh.

Let’s just leave it at this: the rules allow for the entire primary voting process to be made into a sham. “Super-delegates” and in some cases, delegates, can do just about anything they choose. And as our last look at this charade made clear, this issue is not lost on the candidates (who are pumping campaign dollars into the delegate coffers).

Nice, isn’t it? If you and I pay off the government clerk to do something quickly for us, we face potential jail time. But our “leaders” can buy off delegate votes with individual campaign contributions.

Ahhhh…the smell of hypocrisy in the morning…
