Harold Monteau: Democrats stack the deck for only one candidate

Harold Monteau, a member of the Chippewa Cree Tribe who served in the administration of former president Bill Clinton, accuses the Democratic party of favoring candidate Hillary Clinton:
In my view, what the DNC has done in handpicking, from day one, the Presidential Candidate the Democratic Establishment prefers (Hillary Clinton), disenfranchises millions of Democrat voters who truly want the DNC to facilitate a “fair fight” on the Policy Issues in selecting the nominee. Instead we have the “Democrat Establishment Machine” making that choice for us. This sends a message that “we don’t count” and “our opinions are worthless” in what is supposed to be a Democratic process in selecting the Nominee. We are being told that if we don’t support their hand-picked and pre-determined candidate, that we are “stupid, immature, delusional, uninformed, ignorant of how “it works” in DC Politics, and that only an Establishment Candidate can win”.

The other candidates have been playing against a “stacked deck”. They know it, and we know it. The DNC even chose Hillary’s Former Campaign Manager to lead the effort to make sure no other declared Democrat will have an “even” chance. The DNC even scheduled Debates on days that assured that the Debates would compete with other events that American Voters will not forego, such as NFL Football Play-offs and other sporting events. The DNC knows that the more their hand-picked/pre-determined candidate is exposed to the public alongside the other Candidates, the more voters will realize that the Democratic Establishment is not any less a “shill” for Wall Street and the Billionaire’s Club than the Republicans.
