MT and Nate are the smart, informed, Americans. This site has waited a long time for them.
There is a lot of talks right now on TV, radio (npr) and press about the Super Delegates and their effect on the elections in America. They were at it since the foundation of this country, but only now do I finally realize that it does not matter who you vote for, the Super Delegates decide everything. There is a book that came out last year without much fanfare. It is called "STEAL THIS VOTE - DIRTY ELECTIONS AND THE ROTTEN HISTORY OF DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA" by Andrew Gumbel. It is worth reading to learn how the voting is manipulated and how many people employ themselves to corrupt the system. On Morning Edition on NPR in the last week there was this Super Delegate from Utah where Obama wan the primaries and she was wondering who she was going to represent, Clinton or Obama: a dear friend wanted her to vote for Obama, but her mother wants her to vote for Clinton! So the Utah voters's voice does not count for anything? She has not made up her mind. So the Democrat candidate to face McCain will be elcted by +/- 980 Super Delegates (Congressmen, corporate CEOs, and other people who return favors).
Beautiful Democracy! And we criticize Mugabe in Zimbabwe?? Or Venezuela? etc. etc. What a role model...sometimes having been called the beacon of democracy.
Will I ever vote again? I sincerely don't know. Stalin said it is not who votes that counts, it is who count the votes.
