Florida and Michigan deserve to be heard!

This debacle with Michigan and Florida is a lesson to be learned...on many levels.

When leadership of a political party has the power to strip eligible American citizens of their right to have their vote counted in an election--through absolutely no fault of the voters--then those leaders have WAAAAY to much power.

Through the pass few month's we have witnessed the irresponsible and reprehensible power playing by certain members of the elected Democratic and Republican leadership in their call for presidential candidates to drop out of the race. According to these "leaders" in their infinite wisdom, more than one candidate in a race is bad for their respective party.


When did becoming an elected official be about what's good for the party OVER what's good for the country?

When did striping eligible American citizens of their right to have their right to have their vote count become something good for our country?

Shame, shame on the elected officials pushing to have the votes of eligible American citizens disenfranchised, voided, and meaningless.


Shame, shame on the elected officials remaining silent on this issue!

How is it that we require -- no demand -- a person have years of experience to preform sales, secretarial. research, journalism, accounting, managerial but when it comes to electing a president of the United States of America we don't care that they don't have experience, we just want them to either look like us, tell us what we want to hear, or make us feel good.

This double standard mentality of hiring practices in our country is a curious phenomenon to us.

Is it about control?

Is it that if we feel we, personally, can't control something, then we just want someone to tell us what we want to hear?


In that way, we feel like we are in control?


Is it that we feel our country is so absolutely out of control that we just simply want the person who appears to have come from out of nowhere believing that a person surely must represent something different than what we have?

How is it that EVERY eligible citizen of the United States of America gets an equal vote for the contestants of "American Idol and Dancing With The Stars", but NOT for the President of the United States of America?

When did voting for who will become our next democratic candidate for president of the United States of America become the sole privilege of a select number of states and not all of the states?

When people are turning out in record numbers to vote why would political leaders and the news media be so determined to stop this process?

This is more about media arrogance and unleashed elitism!

With Clinton, though, the press seems to have almost completely disregard for the 14 million voters who have backed her candidacy, as well as the idea that she is their representative in this race.

Instead, the media treat her entire campaign as some sort of vanity exercise in which voters do not exist.

Hillary Clinton does have a chance to win. Yet she has been told by the press to go home and to get over herself.

"It's unprecedented!"
