Why even vote for those two parties when they are capable of this?

DNC pretty much rigged the election for Hillary with "superdelegates". Bernie wins a state yet gets less delegates.
Maybe Bernie needs super-duper delegates to out-prioritize her super delegates.

Trump was robbed of delegates in Colorado. Texas had a lot of votes being switched to Cruz. I told you months ago that they were going to steal the election from him in broad daylight. Maybe the RNC rigs the convention and nominates Cruz or Kasich. Who got less votes from the public.
Remember what they did to Ron Paul?

Why vote for parties that throw your vote away and rig the elections with "super delegates"?

This is already being (incorrectly) whined about on two other threads. Do we really need another?

When they steal the election from Trump at the convention what will you do?


When Bernie gets cheated because of "super delegates" what will you do then?

The super delegates make their own choice. They already chose.

That's personal isn't it?

Not Trump.

PS: I've read the reasons why Bernie and Trump are being "shafted" and I know they suck for anti-establishment candidates, but that is how the rules have always been. We have more freedom to choose our candidates within our parties currently than we have ever had in the history of this country.

Not sure what anyone was expecting. Trump and Bernie were anti-establishment candidates. Of course the Establishment wouldn't let them win.

The GOP did not screw Trump of delegates. Trump screwed himself by messing-up the delegate vote pamphlets he had made for his delegates.

Those that were there to vote for his delegates voted for the wrong people because his camping screwed-up.

This is such a big deal because Trump can't actually admit he blew-it and has to create a conspiracy around it. And of course his fanboys step right in line with that conspiracy.

I am not voting for Trump either.

I just don't understand why people vote for those two parties when the Libertarians are better than them in everyway.

They control the media.

It goes back the 90s attitude where if you voted for Perot you were throwing your vote away. Anything other than a vote for the GOP or Democrat is wasted, or that's what the mass psyche believes.

Most modern Libertarians are not libertarians. They are disgruntled Republicans that don't think the GOP is extreme enough.

The whole delegate systems is lame. It's there to assure control of candidate selection.

I will never vote for those two parties ever again.

The entire US election system is a pathetic bastardisation of democracy.

From the delegates to the electoral college.

Here's the problem with being an establishment hipster. You support the underdog parties year after year because they are anti-establishment. Well what if their message catches on? Then they become popular and then when they become big enough to actually win elections and hold offices across the country, they become the establishment and you aren't allowed to vote for them anymore.

Libertarians believe in absolute minimal government(government only where necessary nothing more)
Republicans believe in slightly less authoritarian government compared to Democrats.
Libertarians believe in allowing abortion.(I don't agree with abortion but the state should not ban it)
Republicans believe in outright bans by government.

Perhaps you are a true libertarian, but many in your ranks are not.
