When the political back room ward bosses and Washington party elites possess the power to usurp the will of “We the People” it is time the electorate sends a message to those party leaders who are supposed to speak for us that it is “our will be done” and not their will.
IN 1776 Thomas Jefferson stated clearly in our “Declaration of Independence” the mechanism by which the citizens can wrestle control from any political party establishment and restore our God-given right to select those that will represent us in this Republic. Selecting candidates to run for the Office of
President of these United States must rest with Citizens of this nation.
Both the Republican and Democrat political party elites could care less what Americans believe and want in a candidate as evidenced by the rules imposed upon the nominating and delegate selection process by both parties. The establishment of the so called Super Delegate coupled with the rules of proportionality used in awarding delegates in many states leaves the will of the people subordinate to that of the party bosses and big donor class that supports special interests. These practices virtually ignore the will of the people.
Now we see the political establishment within the Republican party in full fledged panic, paranoid at the prospect that they are about to lose control of the nominating process. They will do anything to prevent Donald Trump from securing the minimum number of delegates to lock up the party nomination. Should they continue to pursue this action by any means available and derail the will of the people they do so at their own peril and at that of the parties very existence.
Likewise we see the same mindset on the part of Democrats who rely heavily on caucuses in the selection process and the rules associated with Super Delegates to the proportion of delegates available in various states, not to mention the impending indictment of Hillary Clinton for improper handling of National Security Information while serving as Secretary of State in the Obama Administration. Should the Obama Justice Department refuse to indict and prosecute Hillary Clinton, as would be the case with any other citizen of this nation that had done the same things the evidence shows Hillary did, it would leave little doubt that the fix is in and being orchestrated by the party elites and Barack Obama.
In either event we maybe witnessing the death of the two-party system in the United States. The wrath of the voters will come down upon both political parties should a brokered convention result in the Republican Party and refusal by the Democrat-controlled administration to enforce our laws and indict Clinton. Should the Democrat party and the administration bend to the will of the Clinton machine, thereby abandoning the rule of law and manipulate the candidate selection process by any means available to them the voter revolt will literally disintegrate the Democrat Party.
Additionally should Donald Trump or any other Republican nomination seeker abandon the Party and run as a third-party candidate this nation will move another step toward becoming a European Socialist Democracy governed by some weak coalition of political hacks resembling countries such as the U.K. and France.
Americans are fed up with the political elites, professional politicians and big donor class that comprise Washington today. The electorate is clambering for a true Washington outsider and a leader to take charge and rid our government of those forces owing allegiance to special interests and the Party over their oath to represent “We the People”.
The battle lines have been drawn between the Washington Establishment and “We the People”. Lets hope that Washington is getting our message loud and clear for their sake and ours.
