    It seems that not only are America's elections rigged with billions in bribe money, gerrymandering, barriers to voting and rigged electronic voting machines but the Democratic Party has created a rigged system that means the primary democratic voter is totally irrelevant because those elite super delegates (code words for Corporatists) are selected to vote for a certain candidate no matter how many votes for that candidate or how many states they win and you know what?! The whole damn thing really STINKS!

    I bet the Republicans are really wishing they had super delegates right now.

    Then Senator Obama understood how important super delegates were and they are one of the main reasons he is now finishing up his second term as President.

    Gerrymandering, also known as redistricting, is in the Constitution. Article I, Section II is quite clear when it comes to that. Certain states have voted to set up independent redistricting commissions, but the Supreme Court has yet to rule on whether those are in fact legal.

    The original Constitution only allowed white male land owners to vote. Women couldn't vote until the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920 and all African Americans couldn't vote until the 24th Amendment was ratified in 1964.

    My point is that we've always been a flawed country and the world has always been a flawed world. But as MLK said, "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Anyone who understands world history knows that saying is correct.
