Billionaires, allow a show contest each election season to continue the illusion of democracy. And in each election they have THEIR candidates ready to 'win' which is done with the huge amounts of money poured into these election.

It is as corrupt a system as can be imagined under the cloak of democracy.

They were not worried about upstarts like Bernie gaining support from the people. They have allowed this to happen before, until they were ready to put a stop to it.

Arrogance is the answer to 'why is she not really trying'. She has been assured that she doesn't need to.

THEY will buy THIS election for either of their two chosen candidates, no matter what the people want.

I am sure they are all drinking their cocktails, watching the 'little people' with their Populist candidate THINKING they have any power.

Since they have been so successful for so long with this method, why should they think their money won't buy yet another election?

However, they may be getting a little worried that they allowed this to go on for too long. Which is why we saw Brock's little escapade so early in the primaries.

Since that failed so spectacularly and raised nearly 2 million for Bernie, I'm sure there are meetings going on in Private Mansions around the country to try to figure out WTH is going on.

But they will stop at nothing, and their chosen candidates are no doubt confident of this, to stop Bernie from winning.

And that is why the People must be as relentless, as fiercely committed to winning as they are. Or once again, they will get what they want.

Imo this is the most critical election since the stolen 2000 election.

Iow, it is us against them. Can the people win? I think so, IF they do not give up.
