TOO BAD FOR DEMOCRACY PART 3: AMERICA’S PROGRESS HAS BEEN SETBACK
I traveled the country, I traveled everywhere. There was a lack of enthusiasm for her even among millennials.” This excerpt is from Donna Brazile, the former interim DNC chair who has a new book coming out, Hacks The Inside and The Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House. The former DNC interim chair is discussing how Hillary, the DNC, and 32 state parties rigged the nomination process before we the voters were given the opportunity to make our choice. Because of this terrible decision and the people who made this decision our nation will fall behind other industrialized nation on issues we need to make progress on. One issue is healthcare, America is the only industrialized nation without universal healthcare, and this is an issue 104 years later we have not made progress on because another progressive liberal candidate was rigged by the establishment. As a Bernie supporter, this is nothing more than an I told you so about what Donna Brazile is stating. When the voters are inspired and see a candidate who understands the future, that is the candidate to be the nations next leader.

“None of this is truly shocking. In fact, Brazile is largely writing about things we already knew about.” Washington Post. The only shocking factors about what took place in 2016 are the 32 state parties participating in the money laundering scheme and the fact Hillary and the DNC signed an agreement well before the voters had the opportunity to decide who they want to lead. Additionally, for the DNC to voice opposition to voter suppression, they disenfranchised 3 million of Bernie Sanders supporters from New York and Chicago. To take away the right of voters is the cause of destruction for our democracy, and is a reason why more citizens will refuse to participate in the political process.
Also, to say that Bernie proposals were unrealistic, although every other industrialized nation has achieved universal healthcare, affordable higher education and have begun to work on saving our planet due to climate change. This illustrates the establishment does not understand the future, a reason America’s progress has been setback. The unfortunate aspect is that it will take our nation longer to catch up to other nations due to the mess Donald Trump is causing and to restore our relationship with our allies.

One year later and many articles later are stating Bernie Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump in the general election. “If the DNC had not rigged the primaries Bernie would be President. It is unfortunate how the DNC is treating Bernie, rigging the primaries.” Both comments were made by Senator Ted Cruz in a recent debate over the tax bill and Donald Trump stated this last year on the campaign trail, he saw just how the DNC and Hillary rigged the nomination. Moreover, Trump also stated he would prefer to go against Bernie in the general election. Sidebar: notice how Donald Trump had a nickname for every candidate except Bernie?”

Donna Brazile spilling the tea on what took place behind the scenes in the 2016 elections further damages any credibility of the DNC and Hillary. Because of the low voter turnout in our nation and the dearth of voter engagement in the political process, this has turned citizens away from supporting the organization and not being involved in the political process.
