We the undersigned proclaim our displeasure and disagreement with
the entire manner in which the American Democratic Primary has been run in 2008.
We particularly dispute:
1) The disenfranchisement of Michigan and Florida voters in an inter party
squabble they had no control over that has left millions of democrats
voiceless and unrepresented.
2) Irregularities, intimidation and suspected wrongdoing in states with caucuses.
3) A failure to foresee or address interference by Republican cross over voters
whose candidate is now selected leaving them free to engage in mischief that
could determine the outcome in several key states.
4) Unanswered efforts to redefine the oversight role of the superdelegates
and to pressure them to deviate, endorse and vote in a manner not intended.
5) Outright favoritism shown by the DNC to candidate Barack Obama and
undue pressure placed upon candidate Hillary Clinton to concede a race
she has NOT yet lost.
The youngest voters among us find this a disorderly disilliusioning process
filled with chaotic caucuses and crossover open primaries that seem to us
to throw the entire election outcome into disrepute and doubt.
While those of us who have engaged in the political process for many years
have never seen such a bald display of candidate favoritism, incompetant
leadership, and indifference to public outcry.
And we ALL place the blame and the uncertain fate of the Democratic party
in what should have been an assured election upon DNC head, Howard Dean.
We can neither support nor contribute to the Democratic National Committee
until our concerns are suitably addressed.
=S T R I K E =
is a looseknit assembly of diverse voters
and friends of The Clintons
who are shocked and sickened by the
press and political forces against
Hillary, the future and first
Woman President of the United States.
