I would like to thank superdelegate Larry Murakami, who is running for State House District 2 for committing to Bernie Sanders because that is who the people chose by a landslide. Ian Olson and Casey Steinau are at this point still uncommitted. I would ask them in making their decisions to please use the will of the people as their guide. Kim Metcalfe has committed to Hillary Clinton. The United States after all was supposed to be a Democracy and the superdelegate system is non-democratic. Those superdelegates who vote for the will of the people do help mitigate that wrong. Looking at who the superdelegates are in Washington state, elected politicians, screams either getting or giving favors. Thwarting the will of the people is not popular now or any other time, just ask the people of AZ. I watched the hearing of their House Committee on Elections yesterday discussing the recent election fraud, people are PISSED! Someone recorded the stream and put it on YouTube, you'll have to ignore the chat box. The first part is the hearing, but the interesting part is later when the public testifies. The good stuff starts at 2:32.10. I'm proud of the people of AZ today.
PEOPLE ARE ANGRY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY CONSERVATIVES, LIBERALS AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN. YOU CAN'T FIX THE PROBLEMS BY DOING THE SAME OLD THINGS AND HAVING THE SAME PEOPLE MAKE THE DECISIONS. WHEN AN ELECTION SYSTEM IS IN PLACE THAT REWARDS PEOPLE FOR IGNORING THE JUDGMENT AND COLLECTIVE WISDOM OF THE CITIZENS, INSTEAD DOING THE WILL OF THE WEALTHY AND POWERFUL WE NO LONGER HAVE A DEMOCRACY.
The red states are in many ways leading the way. This is a signal to me the saner people are stepping forward. In Alaska there are many independents who will never register for either party so do not participate in caucuses or primaries. This means the number of people voting for Bernie in the general election will very likely rise dramatically. This is due to questions people ask themselves about candidates, who cares about this country, who cares about the people, who can I trust, who will take us down a better path, who will help the young people succeed, who cares about the disabled, who cares about the vets, who cares about the homeless, who cares about the working poor, who cares about the elderly, who cares about the earth, who wants to unite us and on and on.The news media blamed Bernie's victories on white people, stating Alaska, Idaho an Hawaii were primarily white. #BernieMadeMeWhite took off on twitter yesterday producing some hilarious tweets. Many people don't know much about Alaska, but they do know about Hawaii so why would the news media report such a thing? King and Pierce County in Washington are very diverse along with lots of Hispanics in the Yakima area, there are also American Native/Indians all over the place.
Alaska has 229 tribes of people who identify as Alaska Natives or Native Americans/Indians. Many in Alaska are working to protect their rights and assure they have fair justice and a strong voice. Then on top of this Alaska has schools which are amazingly diverse in Anchorage along with communities filled with Polynesians, Filipinos, Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, well everyone. Oh and Russians, but they ARE white.
