First: I HATE it whenever the private correspondences between people are released and made public in this way. It seems like a horrible violation of privacy, on par with some peeping tom. No matter how horrible what someone says in a communication that was supposed to be private, I hate to see that communication made public without their consent. I know that some of you disagree with me on this, but it’s how I feel.
Next: The fact that this appears to be an attack on the DNC by a foreign power, specifically intended to help get Trump elected, is INCREDIBLY disturbing.
Next: I am incredibly impressed by Sander’s response, and how he continues to call for unity despite how horribly he was treated by the DNC, as revealed by these emails.
Finally: it would appear that some very serious reforms are needed in the DNC, including increased impartiality as well as far greater transparency and accountability, (without hacking private email conversations).
I hope that this attack will backfire on Trump’s Russian backers, that Sander’s call for unity will prevail, and that the DNC will quickly make the needed reforms to make sure that this never happens in the future.
“To my mind, what is most important now is the defeating of the worst candidate for president that I have seen in my lifetime, Donald Trump, who is not qualified to be president by temperament, not qualified to be president by the ideas that he has brought forth,” Sanders said on ABC.
Unfortunately,that is inaccurate.
If no one wins a majority of the electoral votes, it goes to the house to decide.
That means that there's no other viable 3rd choice! I do wish there were. But we desperately need to change our laws to make 3rd choices reasonable. But for now, they aren't. And it's not the fault of people voting for the lesser of two evils, its in the system that makes voting for the lesser of two evils the only rational choice in a situation like this.
