Act For Hillary
An astute and actiive poster made this suggestion at a couple of sites, but I refer to the full post at dakiniland. D.J., the poster is worried that widespread dissatisfaction amongst Hillary voters will affect the wrong party, so to speak. The object of disaffection is two fold, the self-proclaimed nominee, and the enabling DNC. How do we punish the powers that be, without affecting the thousands of good Democratic political warriors?
THEREFORE: I propose that each of us write to Democratic Party leaders before July 4 to say some version of the following:
1. I am an enthusiastic supporter of Hillary Clinton for president and am very disappointed in the undemocratic decisions of the DNC and Party leadership that undermined her campaign.
a. The DNC took four Michigan delegates that Hillary had won and gave them to Obama
b. The DNC punished two states that Hillary had won big, Florida and Michigan, by cutting their delegates in half, but did not punish two states that Obama had won which also held their primaries earlier than the DNC rules allowed.
c. Despite the extremely close race, the Democratic leadership kept telling the media and Hillary herself that she should get out of the race. Their behavior was insulting and unfair.
2. That is why I am changing (or have just changed) my registration from Democrat to Independent (OPTIONAL: you may want to add: but only after the Democratic Congressional primary is held in my state)
3. OPTIONAL: Some of you may want to say: I will not give money to the Democratic Party until I see an acknowledgement of the need for real change, such as eliminating undemocratic processes, such as caucuses. The caucuses are much less democratic than primaries, and in 2008 there was a great deal of election fraud, with many caucus participants not living in the precincts or even the state where they caucused.
4. OPTIONAL: Some of you may want to say: I will not support Barack Obama because he did not win the popular vote, and he was selected rather than farily elected. Those of you who plan to vote for Barack Obama can say so, or just not mention your voting plans.
REMINDER: Your registration does not affect how you vote in November. It also does NOT influence how the media polls show Democrats are going to vote or have voted UNLESS you choose to tell pollsters how you are registered. That’s up to you.
That is one very thoughtful voter/activist.
The Dems are lucky, they better listen!
