The Democratic Party: A Party for the Super Delegates

My libtard neighbor just loves Washington D.C.’s lawlessness.  He justifies federal government overreach by emphasizing that this is a democracy and their actions are on behalf of “We the people."

My neighbor is to the left of Bernie Sanders.  I know that’s hard to believe but it’s true.  So the next time I see him, I’m going to ask, how is it that the Democratic Party – a party of the people – is ruled by an oligarchy of super delegates?  New Hampshire primary voters should be pissed off!  Here is an excerpt from the Daily Caller:

Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic Party’s nominating system, he leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while she leaves with at least 15 delegates.

New Hampshire has 24 “pledged” delegates, which are allotted based on the popular vote. Sanders has 13, and Clinton has 9, with 2 currently allotted to neither.

But under Democratic National Committee rules, New Hampshire also has 8 “superdelegates,” party officials who are free to commit to whomever they like, regardless of how their state votes. Their votes count the same as delegates won through the primary.

How is that democracy working for a party of the super delegates, by the super delegates and for the super delegates?
