As the dust settles from the political circus known as Super Tuesday, only one major fact stands out: Both the Republicans and Democrats have no interest in what the people of this country actually want.
The ruling political class of this country is showing just how afraid they are to lose power and the lengths to which they will go to squash anyone who threatens that power.
Let’s start with the Dems: Bernie Sanders was a punch line when he announced his candidacy last year. How in the world could a Democratic socialist (his words) be taken seriously in an election that will cost an estimated $1 billion of contributed money?
Well, it looks like everyone underestimated the power of hundreds of thousands of youths that skipped basic economics.
Bernie was a juggernaut. Bernie started to pick up delegate after delegate.
But the party didn’t care about all that support because the Democrat superdelegates are lining up behind Hillary Clinton. I guess they just know better than all of us.
Now on to the Republicans.
I will admit that on the day that Donald Trump announced his candidacy, I blasted him on air. To me, this was just another publicity run by the reality show billionaire.
And then the Trump-nado began to gather wind. The pundits had to quickly come to the realization that Trump was in this to win it.
Most importantly, the Republican establishment came to that same realization and they freaked out. They are STILL freaking out!
There are now talks about Mitt Romney entering the race. Party leaders are discussing a brokered convention to nominate a candidate that the country did not choose!
The bottom line is: It does not matter on which side of the political aisle you hang your hat. Your opinion and vote does not matter unless it backs their mission to retain power.
