What would you say if I told you that your political party has an army of demons who are prepared to cast votes at their convention that could counteract your primary vote? What would you say if I told you that Hillary Clinton is fervently trying to harness the power of those demons to cast votes for her in the Democratic Convention? Now before you accuse me of going bonkers, let me tell you that the demons that I am referring to are actually super delegates to the Democratic convention. These loose cannons known as super delegates should not be confused with pledged delegates who are essentially pledged to vote in accordance with the primary results. Super delegates can vote however the heck they want, regardless of your primary vote.
Hillary Clinton's aides are now in the process of pressuring super delegates into pledging that they will vote for Her at the nominating convention. So into the voting booth you go, John and Jane Q. and you cast your vote for Bernie Sanders. The pledged delegates who represent you at the convention dutifully cast their votes for Bernie, only to be met by a flood of pre-cast Hillary votes from the super delegates that she now controls. That's as if Hillary went into the voting booth with you, tore up your vote for Bernie and cast one for herself. Ah yes, democracy in action!
At this point, you might ask how do we over come this obstacle and get Bernie elected? The answer is for now, with a massive number of votes for Bernie Sanders that overpowers any rigging of an already corrupt system! Since too many professional politicians in the Democratic party benefit from the super delegate system which is an affront to democracy, don't expect it to change soon. The only work around is to start a new party that doesn't have super delegates and truly reflects our votes. Hey, why not call it The Really democratic Party?

Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
