You knew this was just a matter of time.
Whatever the fake polls tell the rest of us, the power brokers that are aligned against President Trump – the economic globalists, the far-left open borders crowd, the world Marxist movement – have decided that it’s time to stop lying to themselves.
Barring a major reversal of fortunes, the Washington Post is signaling that Donald Trump is going to win reelection by a large margin bolstered by swelling support from an ever-increasing number of Deplorables.
Time for Plan B. Drop the charade that voters actually get to choose their president, not the Republican and Democrat corporations, and let the elites choose who they want to control.
(WaPo) The current process is clearly flawed, but what would be better? … A better primary system would empower elites to bargain and make decisions, instructed by voters.
One lesson from the 2020 and 2016 election cycles is that a lot of candidates, many of whom are highly qualified and attract substantial followings, will inevitably enter the race. The system as it works now — with a long informal primary, lots of attention to early contests and sequential primary season that unfolds over several months — is great at testing candidates to see whether they have the skills to run for president.
What it’s not great at is choosing among the many candidates who clear that bar, or bringing their different ideological factions together, or reconciling competing priorities. A process in which intermediate representatives — elected delegates who understand the priorities of their constituents — can bargain without being bound to specific candidates might actually produce nominees that better reflect what voters want.
Superdelegates will steal the Democrat nomination from Bernie Sanders if they are given the chance at a brokered convention.
After watching the Washington establishment for the past four years, does anyone doubt they would steal the election from the next Donald Trump if they were given the chance?
Of course, that’s the whole idea. Can’t have these pesky resets every time the people realize how badly they’ve been screwed.
The Washington Post has unmasked. It ain’t pretty either. Your voice no longer matters.
