    It not that the delegate system needs to be reformed-it needs to be
    eradicated. The entire thing is an insult to what a democracy is supposed
    to be. Our votes do not actually elect our world leader no matter which way
    you look at it-and that is the real problem here.

    Too bad all of this drama is going to be gone once the new president gets
    elected and no one will care about the election anymore.

    You didn’t mention closed primaries at all… In NY alone there were over 3

    I’ll take a middle ground here: I disagree that the Nevada convention
    wasn’t rigged, and you missed several key points in why Bernie supporters
    were mad once there as it wasn’t just about delegates but the process that
    tipped the scales in Hillary’s favor that were just decided because
    decided, but as for your looks I will say that you, good sir, have DASHING
    good looks.

  18. Alex Marko says:
