It’s rigged! At least that’s what Trump and Hillary tell us. Even the FBI is now warning us that hackers are trying to rig the election.
Our election process and system of government is not rigged. It’s not broken! It’s neglected!
Our constitutional republic is far from perfect. Our two political parties certainly work hard to stack the deck. You only need to look at what happened to Bernie, and the use of Democrat Super Delegates, to see attempts to keep outsiders from gaining power in the party. However, despite the flaws, the system works!
All this talk of a rigged system only distracts from the flaws of political candidates and adds doubt regarding the effectiveness of our political system. This doubt is dangerous. If we allow this doubt to fester, it leads us down a dangerous road.
The more people doubt their political system, the more they begin to rebel. Rebellion, whether political or violent, rarely ends well.
Don’t burn down the system, participate in it!
You may not like politics, or you may try to avoid politics, but believe me… Whether you want it or not, it will find you.
