2. Can we not even have this discussion?

 

It's not going to happen.. Any talk of it is just to discourage Bernie supporters from sending money.

If the people vote for Bernie, the party will get behind the selection.

However, at the moment, the party is trying its best to make you believe resistance is futile!

Don't play the game!

3. Not how it works, I would have thought that would be explained and put to bed by now

Or not how it would work based on how it ALWAYS works.

4. If Bernie has a majority of state wins and the scale is tipped to Hillary by superdelegates,

they will need to jump ship to Bernie or watch the party disintegrate. Whatever happens, I'll vote to keep Republicans out of office. Whether that is by continuing to be a Democrat or a newly minted Independent remains to be seen.

7. Superdelegates, like Electoral College delegates,

are not required to support one candidate. They can change their votes. If the popular vote reflects for one candidate, delegates can vote their priorities.

8. Just tired of the corruption.

We find out what I suspected, that Tweety's wife was hooked up with Hillary's Donors in return for his shilling for her. His change was remarkable and I had suspected the reason, same as I expect that all of those early political endorsements were made for the same reason.

11. Before worrying about the end game...

I suggest we reach out to the super delegates that are elected and express our displeasure and objectively point out why she is not the best choice of the two. (I know that all the supers are not elected lawmakers)

In all fairness, I think Hill learned this trick from Obama in '08.

16. It is my hope that if enough displeasure is expressed now, they would not try it later.

It would be stupid to do it, but her desire for the office seems to hold no bounds.

13. I don't plan on voting for Clinton either way

 

I will vote for every other DEM on the ballot but I just can't vote for Hillary. I live in CT, where the DEM nominee will win the state with or without my vote so I feel like it's a win-win.

15. Google "After Sander's Big Win in New Hampshire Establishment

Figures Want to Scare You with Superdelegates. Here's Why It's Bullshit" by Shana Ryan.

A great read that explains all of this.

19. The terminology,"bought off" is applied to elected

officials who endorse Hillary. The two Bernie endorsers are above scrutiny.

21. I'm honestly not sure. I hope it doesn't happen.

 

I think that if the SDs overturn the will of the voters that the candidate will be seen as illegitimate.

It may be that the race becomes a lost cause. In that case I could see myself writing in Bernie's name. Hopefully that might help prevent the DNC from making the same mistake again in some future contest.

If it is still close, I don't think I could bring myself to do it.


I don't think it will happen anyways. The SDs are not that stupid.

22. It doesn't matter how I vote in Alaska,

Last edited Wed Feb 10, 2016, 08:36 PM - Edit history (1)

so what I do or don't do is irrelevant.

I will add, though, that since Alaska has more independent, nondeclared and "other" registered voters than Democrats and Republicans combined, since almost all of my Democratic friends are Bernie supporters, and since Hillary is fairly universally disliked here (from my perspective), if Bernie were the candidate, he might stand a chance here. Much more so than Sec. Clinton.

23. I can't support this level of Bullshit

I just can't.

Revolutions cost. People get hurt. Corrupt systems and people cannot be supported and expected to provide any positive change in return. YOu would be delusional to think so.

HIllary and our corrupt DNC would be Business as usual. We won't survive that.
