136. You are totally right that the voters themselves
broke no rules. And I agree that we all deserve a say in the nominating process. But I know that the side that is now pushing this meme that "the voters deserve a say" is the same side that has been pushing the idea that superdelegates, and even pledged delegates, ultimately have the right to vote any way they want--which is the ultimate betrayal of ALL voters.

so come on, let's be fair. There is nothing anywhere that guarantees any voters a say in the primary. Do you think it is fair to proceed with seating delegates that have been elected through UNFAIR election processes? When some candidates were not even on the ballot? When another election was conducted while telling voters that their vote would not count?
