The current presidential primary season is unique. Both political parties have major candidates who are not or have not been members of the respective political party. In the Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) Party, one of its leading contenders is an independent who refers to himself as a socialist. His tie with the Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) Party is that he has caucused with them in the Senate and his ideology is in line with the party.
In the Republican Party, the candidate who refers to himself as the front runner has a domestic and social philosophy very close to the Progressives and a foreign policy philosophy that has no consistency and is not identifiable. This candidate has stated that he identifies more with the Democrats than the Republicans and would run on the Republican ticket because he believed it would be easier to fool the Republicans.
In both parties, the pundits have been incorrect for the most part. Hillary was supposed to be coronet ed. Today she has lost 7 of the last 8 contests. Recent national polls show she is trailing Sanders by two points. She has a lead in delegates because of the rules of the party that allow for “super delegates” who are not committed to voters or candidates. Because of the “super delegates” it appears Hillary will limp into the nomination unless she is indicted first. Never do I remember a candidate for president leading anything when they are under investigation by the FBI for criminal activity. In normal times, an investigation would have an influence on the process, but today, in the Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) Party, it might just springboard Hillary to the nomination.
The Republican primary is just as confusing. We have the leading candidate accusing other contenders of stealing his votes even before the primary has taken place. As I understand, to steal something is to take something that belongs to another person. The vote belongs to the citizen until he goes to the polls and casts it for one of the contenders. Please explain how one contender could possibly steal votes from another before the primary election.
This leading contender would also have us believe that majority means most. He would have us believe that majority means closest to 50% plus one. The Republican rules are very clear. They say that the person who will be the nominee of the party must have a majority of the delegates cast their vote for that individual during any single roll call. The rules say that roll calls must continue until an individual has received a majority. Nobody can steal the nomination from anybody until a nominee has been elected. The nomination does not belong to anybody until an individual receives a majority of the delegates’ votes.
The Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) have a stumbling leading candidate who is being challenged by a non-Democrat who calls himself a socialist. She is also awaiting the results of the FBI investigation that could and should result in an indictment. It is no surprise the first word that comes to the minds of Americans when her name is mentioned is liar or untrustworthy.
The Republicans have a stumbling leading candidate who is more concerned with accusing other candidates of whatever comes to mind at any point of time and without regards to any validation. This leading candidate is very adept at manipulating the news media into reporting on his salacious accusations so he does not have to discuss policy because he has no understanding of the real issues facing our nation and thus has no policy other than some concocted sound bite.
If ever Freedom Loving Americans should call to God and request his guidance and blessing on our nation, this is the time.
