My Views

Things on my mind:

  1. Superdelegates ~ what are they exactly?

OK, here’s the deal … Superdelegates Why the Superdelegate system should be abolished.

The national Republican Party ruled in 2015 that their superdelegates must vote for the candidate that their state voted for, and that’s the biggest difference between Republican and Democratic superdelegates.

  • The outcome of the Primary election could conceivably be determined by the party establishment (not the constituents) thwarting the ‘will of the people’ in a scenario where the delegate count is very close or tied at convention, smacks of unconstitutionality.

The process for presidential elections in the United States is governed by the Constitution. Primary elections, however, are not.

in 2016, Republican superdelegates will have way, way less power and autonomy than the superdelegates on the Democratic side.

The GOP and the Democratic Party are non-governmental organizations, and so they can basically set whatever rules they’d like regarding delegates and how they’re distributed.

Panel Four
“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”

ORIGINAL PASSAGE

“I am certainly not an advocate for frequent and untried changes in laws and constitutions. I think moderate imperfections had better be borne with; because, when once known, we accommodate ourselves to them, and find practical means of correcting their ill effects. But I know also, that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”

Jefferson to H. Tompkinson (AKA Samuel Kercheval), July 12, 1816[10]
