Vote Disenfranchisement In The Democratic Party

May 28, 2008

According to party lawyers, a Democratic Party rules committee has the authority to seat some delegates from Michigan and Florida but not fully restore the two states as Hillary Clinton wants.  But a DNC staff analysis said there is an option to restore 100% of the delegates-by a recommendation of the Credentials Committee.  Michigan and Florida lost their delegates by holding their primaries earlier than the Party thought they should.  Withholding the delegates puts the Dems in a precarious position.  In the the 2000 general election Al Gore insisted on counting all the votes, he sued to get the votes counted even though the ballets weren’t punched right and legally couldn’t be counted.  The trick to that was that Gore also sued to block absentee ballots that arrived after the deadline because it was “against the rules”.  It is important to remember that the military men and women tend to vote conservative.  The similarity between 2000 and today is “count all the votes, except the ones that go against the party wishes”.  There in lies the primary problem with the Dems.  Their idea of democracy is to count only those who vote the way the Dems think they should vote.  Not unlike when Saddam made sure he was the only person on the ballet.  That isn’t democracy, it is the Socialist dream forcing itself on those who don’t want any part of Socialism.
