Donald Trump is saying the upcoming Presidential election is rigged, that there will be massive fraud at the polling places, and that the Party of the Donkey has conspired with the media to defraud him of his rightful victory. 'Cause, you know, The Donald is a winner, never a loser. Sounds to me like he's preparing his excuse when/if he
No, I don't think there will be hearse's lined up at the polling places bringing the dead back to vote one last time. That's not how the system is rigged these days. Today the two...2...lemme say it again...TWO political parties who have any chance of winning (they've conspired to make sure a Third Party will be stillborn) have rigged elections by insuring only one of their Good 'Ol Boys / Girls gets nominated in the first place. (Or as a last ditch nuclear option, withhold their allowance.) If you're not "in", you're out.
Here's the deal: Both parties are beholden to their Sugar Daddy special interests. They took their (campaign) money, so now they must deliver the goods (favors). If their candidate can't make a strong showing, their benefactors will jump ship in a New York minute. Who would have ever thought the banks and health insurers and pharmaceutical companies, etc would be lined up behind Hillary Clinton? But that's what they do when their preferred party's candidate is in freefall.
After several of their Presidential candidates (Mondale / Dukakis) crashed and burned badly back in the '80's, the Democrats perfected their system of "pledged super-delegates" to make sure no renegade / hopeless candidate ever became their standard bearer again.
The People might have wanted Bernie Sanders, but the Party wasn't sure they could control him if he won, so they took him out with the big hook (aka pledged super-delegates), and crowned Hillary instead. Pledged super-delegates = veto power.
"But wait" you say. "Didn't Hillary get more popular votes during the primaries?" True, but with the ever-present pledged super-delegates making the outcome clear from day one, how many voters just succumbed to the inevitable? We'll never know.
And just to make double / triple / quadruple sure, the Democratic National Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her staff threw roadblocks in front of Sanders at every opportunity. We know this because her leaked emails said so. Busted!
So how then did renegade Donald Trump walk away with the Republican Presidential nomination? Where was their hook? Ahhh....they didn't have one because their candidates didn't crash and burn back in the '80's. They never thought they needed one. But you can bet the farm that when election season 2020 rolls around they WILL have some sort of fail-safe system in place to insure only one of their Chosen Few will ever be on the final ballot. No more Trump's for the GOP!
But for now the Republicans are stuck with him. Most will pay Trump lip service, but little more than that. Without their active foot soldiers or $$$$, The Donald is finished. THAT is how you rig elections today.
Oh, and the media is biased towards the Democrats. As a voter who will NOT be voting for either major party candidate this year I can give you a unique, un-biased view of reality. Hillary's leaked emails and other assorted scandals don't get anywhere near as much negative press as The Donald's philandering. Of course, more people like reading "Fifty Shades Of Gray" than "The Complete Unabridged History of ZZzzzz", too. :)
