Sanders' supporters claim the Democratic Party is rigged.

The problem with them is they don't want to follow the rules or even the law. Because it stands in the way for Sanders to win.

It appears that they think the rules and laws is why the Democratic Party is rigged. Better yet, they appear to think that they should be exempt from the rules and laws while everyone that doesn't support them should continue to follow them.

So in effect, they want to rig it so that it favors them instead of everyone having to follow the same rules and laws to ensure fairness.

either.

All they learned was to be angry and rally. I don't know what can be done but to wait for the actions of the worst among them to marginalize the whole of them completely. We can only hope no one gets hurt.

The leaders of his team do not have command and control of the team.
That failure was a root cause of the events in Nevada.

The Sanders team is amateur. The team is not lead by disciplined and focused professionals.
That lack of control and discipline is the cause of many of their issues.
The rules were not rigged. team management did not see to it that their people knew and complied with the rules.

They will do the same thing in any contest, baseball, the umpire is not fair, football, the refs are making terrible calls.

The BSers who proclaim they are socialist are more like anarchist and totalitarian with the my way or no way actions. They have embarrassed Sanders, themselves and the United States.

don't expect that they're going to let you change all the rules.

Especially after you already agreed to them when you first arrived.
