“Coup!” scream the headlines from major online news organizations. President Trump and his Machiavellian gnome Stephen Bannon are planning to subvert democracy with “shock events,” numbing the electorate and preparing us for a strong-arm dictatorship. Trump is building his own governing apparatus, a shadow state to enslave us all and extinguish the torch of liberty. These incendiary accusations, broadcast across the liberal media by weepy, sad eyed Democratic politicians might make you think that liberalism is the friend of democracy. But it’s not. Look no further than the 2016 primaries for evidence of  this.

Republicans

The Republican field started with 18 candidates, including a brash outsider named Donald Trump who party insiders wanted nothing to do with.  Democracy provides choices and the ability for the people to determine which of these choices govern. Over time, party favorites such as Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich were passed over by the people for Trump. The party was not happy, but they bowed to the voters and accepted him as their nominee.

Democrats

The Democrats started the primary process with a virtual coronation. There was really only one choice, Hillary. Bernie Sanders, an old, Jewish, socialist,  was encouraged to run as a patsy to at least lend the appearance of a democratic process within the party. When Bernie’s populist message began to resonate, Democrats panicked, but not that much. That’s because Democrats use superdelegates to help pick the nominee, and superdelegates are not selected by the people. Instead they are Democratic party insiders. So, even if Hillary did not beat Bernie in the regular delegate vote, the Democratic machine could alway fall back on these superdelegates.

In addition, the Chairperson of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was also co-Chair of Hillary Clinton’s election campaign and information from Wikileaks details how she worked behind the scenes to undermine Bernie’s campaign.

Hillary’s coronation as the nominee was pre-determined. Between the competing field, the interference of the DNC, and the Superdelegates, no other candidate stood a chance.

The irony is that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was one of the weepy Democrats last week calling Trump a dictator. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Jeeeeez.

So, don’t listen to the weepers. They don’t care about democracy. In their eyes, they know better than the people, they can take care of everyone, they understand  who is able and not able to run this country. And if it isn’t one of their choices, they are awfully good at calling names.

But we know their game.
