or rather, Let’s Talk about Party Politics –
#Election2016 has brought party politics to the forefront. And everyone is losing their collective minds.
Newsflash: No one likes party politics
So get over it and stop complaining the process is unfair.
Just because a process is convoluted and complicated does not mean it is unfair.
Parties have been controlling U.S. politics since, practically, the foundation of the Republic. George Washington wasn’t gone 5 minutes before we had the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans going at it.
You want an ugly election?
Look at the Election of 1800, or John Quincy Adams vs. Andrew Jackson. In fact, just watch Race for the White House on CNN.
So – everyone who is complaining about the delegate process –
If you don’t like how the process works – get involved and change it!
Get involved in your local party, get involved in state politics, get involved in your local town, city, village, county, or what have you. Don’t just complain the process is unfair every 4 years.
Who taught you that people elect the president? It’s called the electoral college – and it’s in the constitution. Go look it up.
We have just over 6 months left of the #Election2016.
Don’t make it harder than it needs to be.
We’re already drinking too much.
