Here is a thought-
Fair warning, this is a long thread
This is NOT intended to disparage one of my favorite people
It IS however intended to disparage the organization that is so obviously supporting one candidate over all the others- as happened last election
For a couple of months now we have seen poll after poll of candidates positions in the race and who was on top, who gained a point here or there, who entered in the race and where they stood in that race, how many women, policy vs. vision and what not. Fair enough
We now have what 21 candidates in the running? Of those, how many are polling in double digits?
Almost from the very beginning, not long after Elizabeth Warren entered as the first to step up, the DNC began pushing their choice. All of the major media obediently fell in line
They began listing the DNC pick in the polls even though their candidate had not even entered the race. There were at least a dozen candidates who had not entered the race yet who were NOT listed in those polls... Except one
Why Not?
For over a month the DNC pushed their candidate to the media probably thru political incentives (money) to have their candidate shown in their polls.
In the last election, we all watched as the DNC split the democratic vote. Bernie Sanders was RIGHT about the favoritism.
I didn't support Bernie for President, but I was in support of his IDEAS as a foundation of where the Democratic party should go as a DIRECTION. The resulting voter confusion, anger, apathy and distrust of the SYSTEM grew exponentially during the campaign
The LACK OF TRANSPARENCY of the DNC resulted in one of the most humiliating defeats in a generation. Much of that defeat was directly attributable to the dishonesty of the DNC and their practices of who they support and who is left to their own resources.
They are at it again. They are pushing Joe Biden as their choice. From the very beginning the MSM began listing Biden in ALL their polls when HE HADN'T EVEN ENTERED THE RACE! This is TOTALLY UNFAIR to all the other candidates with respect to who THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE really was
Why didn't they list Kamala Harris before she entered the race? How about Mayor Pete or Amy Klobuchar or Cory Booker or Beto O'Rourke or Julián Castro or Kirsten Gillibrand before they entered? How about Jay Inslee or Tulsi Gabbard or John Hickenlooper? But Joe Biden was.
Talk about a broken system...
The DNC is doing it again
Nearly all the candidates now running are shown in SINGLE DIGITS due to being compared to, until recently, someone who was not even officially in the race. The DNC favoritism is blatantly obvious.
We all know what happened when they last used this kind of deception. My early favorites are Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete. Sadly, because of the totally elitist actions of the DNC, there is not now nor has there been a true reading of the PEOPLE'S CHOICE
To be fair, the RNC had their favorite(s) over Trump. But because of his media savvy he was able to beat them and we all see the chaos, secrecy, deception, institutional and international destruction that has resulted in his presidency. Most of the left saw this coming.
While there is no foreboding doom present on the Democratic side there also is no apparent long shot that has the resources, message or political will to overcome the DNC. There also shouldn't be a need for it. Candidates should be weighed on THEIR OWN MERIT.
For us to grow as a nation, this kind of favoritism, deceptive practice of stacking the deck in favor of someone who, while I love Joe Biden as a person, his attitude, demeanor, experience and ability to appeal, he may not actually be the choice the people would have chosen
If the same standards of gauging one's popularity were used that apply to all the other candidates in the field instead of thumb-on-the-scale preferential treatment we might actually progress to a more representative of the people election.
Unfortunately, that kind of forward thinking doesn't and won't exist until that practice changes.
I am a Liberal... a Progressive and an Independent. While I love Joe Biden, is he REALLY the people's choice and were the other candidates given a FAIR shake from the DNC?
