Are Rigged Elections Real Democracy

YouTube - The Young Turks - Donna Brazile Leaked Other CNN Questions To Hillary Clinton.  The Young Turks is a leftist-liberal organization. They are not supporters of Trump; but, supported Sanders. Still, they are at least reporting on how Hillary Clinton was fed questions in advance of the debates and town hall meetings.

Again, the thing you should be paying attention to is the media bias. Hillary Clinton is corrupt, we all know that, she is also insincere and in the pocket of the big banks. Nobody really doubts that if they have any sense. The Clintons took over $150,000,000 from the banks, that is admitted. Still, the Clintons are not the problem, they are merely a symptom of a bigger problem and that is how elections in this country are run so that only puppets get into office.

Lets start with the basics. By the way, I am not focusing on voter fraud because that is minimal. We do not have open elections. Many states have you vote by party in the primaries. In fact, if you are not affiliated with one of the two major parties it is very difficult to get your nominee on the ballots for all 50 states. Secondly, the primaries themselves are not democratic as we have seen. The people who attend the conventions do not always have to vote for the same candidate that the people voted for. That begs the question of why the government pays for parties to hold primaries in the first place.

Once you understand those two issues we are then faced with the fact that there has been a call in numerous newspapers to ignore the will of the people in the general election by allowing people in the electoral college to vote for whoever they want. The way it is supposed to work is that each state gets electors based on the state's population and those electors are required to vote as their state voted. That is representational democracy.

We now know that the Democratic party paid people to disrupt Trump rallies and even bussed people to them for that express purpose. By the way, they were not just paid to disrupt; but, they were sent there to start fights. Does that seem right to anyone?

The media has been complicit in all of this and the corporate media has avoided discussing these issues to the point where they have almost no trust. The fact that six companies control 90% of the media and will only continue to consolidate means that you only hear what they want you to hear. They no longer seek to inform and instead focus only on promoting those who will allow this information monopoly to continue.
