The majority of media have blasted across Vermont that there are only 3 Democratic Party candidates for governor - NOT true! There are 5! If you want to see all five Democratic Party candidates for governor of Vermont for the very first time together, then please attend the Democratic Party debate tomorrow, Thursday, June 23rd being held at the Congregational Church, 77 Main Street, Springfield, Vermont starting at 6 PM for socializing with everyone, with the debating starting at 7 PM.
This is the first time you will see me with the other candidates, and as of today, June 22nd, I have NEVER met any of them. I was certified by the Secretary of State Election Division on May 3rd, and now over 6 weeks later, ONE DAY before absentee voting starts, I'm finally included in one candidate forum with all of the other Democratic Party candidates.
Wow! I stare out the window and the sky cries with rain. Is this Democracy? Does "inclusiveness" only mean people of any race, creed, color, religion or racial background who have $400,000.00 in their bank account?
Does the Democratic Party definition of "inclusiveness" EXCLUDE all candidates who don't have the money to pay the mass media for advertising?
Does the Democratic Party definition of "inclusiveness" EXCLUDE all candidates who haven't gone down on their knees and been baptized with doubtful dollars from political action committees, corporations and rich people with disguised agendas?
I certainly feel for Emily Peyton who was treated like (omit all properly descriptive Vermont language) crap by the Republican Party in a previous election where she dared to run without the apparently required millions of dollars.
O.K., enought whining and complaining, some people will look at their election ballot, with the absentee voting starting so soon, and vote for me because they are the people who put the quarter in the bubble gum machine hoping for the prize.
But, what does this election process, of the rich and by the rich and for the rich, and oh, YOU, You can vote but don't you dare participate as a candidate if you aren't rich - what does this really do to the United States of America?
Just turn the clock back to last fall when there were a lot of good solid candidates for President of the United States of America for the Republican Party, and a lot of good solid Democratic Party candidates for President of the U.S.A. What happened to all of them?
The mass media and those particular people who totally and completely control our Country by controlling who is and who is not allowed to participate in political candidate debates, decided to divide and conquer. They allowed the richest candidates in the prime time debates, and the candidates the controllers liked less in the under-debates, and the candidates the controllers of debates didn't like at all - well, they were dust in the wind, to be blown away.
And did you get what you wanted? Did you end up with the richest Republican Party candidate for President of the United States of America? Did you end up with the richest Democratic Party candidate for President of the U.S.A. ARE YOU SATISFIED? IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANTED, DONALD TRUMP and HILLARY CLINTON?
Now, wind the clock back again to last fall, would you have preferred to have heard more from the OTHER Democratic Party and Republican Party candidates who were fully and legally qualified last fall?
