We Will Not Be Silenced

I discovered this interesting story over at the New Zeal blog.  It appears there may have been some shady stuff going on with the Democratic Caucus during the 2008 Democratic primaries.  Not that it surprises me; after all we are all aware of the irregularities associated with voter registration drives by ACORN during the 2008 election.  This story is indeed intriguing.     

We Will Not Be Silenced

Gigi Gaston is an American writer-director who directed her first documentary, The Cream Will Rise, in 1998 about singer-songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins.

Here is Gaston’s 2008, documentary on alleged irregularities and in the caucuses that were part of the 2008 Democratic party presidential primaries.

According to this, Obama supporters were the main culprits.

Thanks to Ben.

Too be honest, this is the first time I’ve even heard of this.  If it is true, it appears that the Obama team may have stolen the 2008 Democratic primary with a “grassroots” effort at the delegate level.  Now with as close as it was between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama a few delegates here and a few delegates there and you win; but it sounds like there was widespread fraud going on within the Democratic Party.  It even sounds as if SEIU like thugs were at some of the events actually threatening delegates to vote one way or another.  Now I’m not saying these were SEIU members, I’m saying thugs that used tactics similar to the SEIU tactics.  What really happened is they got a taste of some good old fashioned Chicago type politics.  This must be the coalitions of power that Obama referred to in his 2001 radio interview.  You remember that interview; it was the one where he called the Constitution a charter of negative liberties.  Now we have a group of delegates standing up crying foul; too little, too late.

But this does reveal a great deal about the inner workings of the Democratic delegates.  In my opinion they were rolled by Saul Alinsky tactics.  This is what happens when you allow your party to be infiltrated by a bunch of radical leftists.  But this also shows the serious flaws in our election process with the two party system.  Personally I don’t care for all the rules and requirements either party imposes on their candidates and us.  Why should we settle for the agenda and candidate they put forward?  I mean what really happens is we end up settling for candidates that really don’t represent our views or opinions.  Worse yet we end up being forced to vote for the lesser of two evils or what we perceive to be the lesser of two evils each election cycle.  And then we wonder why people are not interested in politics.  When you feel like you have no voice, you walk away from the process.  That is where we are at now.  

This is why I’m a huge proponent of states’ rights and why I believe that the only way to fix what cannot be fixed through the election process is with a strong dose of federalism.  States must be empowered again to take care of local issues and the federal government needs to be pushed back into the parameters set by their enumerated powers.  This is the only way I see us fixing this corrupt system.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    I wish we could get an amendment to abolish political parties. The process used by both parties is so corrupt, Al Capone would roll in his grave

    I agree Trestin. These parties are destroying the Republic.

    I agree with your solution, but we have to be prepared for massive resistance. This is the only way that "progressives" can win, so they aren't about to go quietly into the night.

    There will be resistance Matt until we expose flawed ideology for what it is. Then like the house of cards it is, it will all come crashing down.
