Well, well, well, wasn’t that an amazing spectacle yesterday? Can you believe the theme was supposed to be “Securing America’s Future?” Clearly it was nothing of the kind! The Obama/DNC Conglomerate abundantly demonstrated that the true message was “Force It!.”
If you are pressured by PUMAs into nominating Hillary and doing a roll call vote, Force It! to come out the way you want it to! After all, we can’t trust the people with something as important as Democracy!
Send Grandma Pelosi in to lecture and intimidate the delegates. Make them vote in secret at their hotel rooms, instead of in public at the Convention so that the result can be manipulated. During the roll call, have the vote totals “adjusted” so that they do not reflect the true count and (heaven forbid) favor Hillary. Instead of doing a full roll call, force Hillary into stopping it before her biggest states are called and to ask that Obama be nominated by acclamation.
Congratulations, Party Leaders: you have created the falsest display of “Unity” ever witnessed by the American people. You have intimidated the delegates into acquiescing, you have stolen victory from the real winner, you have forced the greatest President since Kennedy to bow to your Messiah, and you have elevated your cherished mediocrity over the truly extraordinary.
But I have one question for you.
How are you going to force the American people to cast their votes for Obama?
Something tells me in November, the people will speak. But it won’t be with voices. Instead, from the mouths of outraged voters everywhere, a giant PUMA roar will issue forth!
That’s what happens when you try to Force It! in America, Nancy, Howard, Donna and Barack. This isn’t Stalinist Russia yet. You’re about to be taken to school, and you will not like your lessons one little bit.
What now for PUMA as a movement, and for me as a PUMA? I have some thoughts I’ll share with you later today. But for the moment, I’m just sitting with my emotions and allowing myself time to grieve for the corruption of the Party I loved so much.
But I’ll tell you this much. We are not going to waste all of this energy and power. We are going to direct it for the betterment of our country and our Party. And we are going to awaken the slumbering giant of American patriotism and activism.
People United Means Action.
