No Democracy among Democrats
By Anita Hales


May 22, 2008

The Democrat primary has me feeling very ill at ease and leaving me wondering where the media is to protest the gross disenfranchisement that is happening in this primary.

Two states are being completely left out simply because they didn't march to the drum of the DNC. So, millions of voters are left without a vote. So where is the outcry in the nation over this disenfranchisement?
Then Obama comes along with his brilliant idea - how about we give them half a vote.

Isn't anyone bothered by this?

The Democrats have styled themselves as the party of the people and now they have let them down. It seems that the DNC is more interested in manipulating the outcome of the primary than of seating delegates and having a fair selection of candidates.
