I agree, Asanta. The more I got interested in helping in the local Democratic club the more I realized that as much as it is Democrats and Republicans against each other, it’s also the leadership and insiders of both political parties against the voters. Gerrymandering is just one example of them getting together to assure the voters have very little meaningful voice and the party regulars get to choose who’ll be elected.
But in this case, in the RNC, the bulldozing over established rules by the party old guard, and was actually on a matter directly effecting who would be (and who in the future can be) the nominee. The bulldozing of rules in the DNC was only on a matter of amending a couple of points in the platform.
Yet, the Repubs seek to make political hay out of the DNC incident, while ignoring their own, and, perhaps successfully having the public ignore what they did.
The Repubs are at least effective at getting some democrat leaning individuals thinking that what the Dems did was just as bad as what the Repubs did.
I am tired of Democrats allowing their party’s imperfections to be equated with the greater imperfections of the Repubs.
