Vot­ers are speak­ing

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

In a democ­racy, the voice of the peo­ple is mea­sured by their votes. In this pri­mary pe­riod, del­e­gates are elected to rep­re­sent the view of the peo­ple. It is vi­tal for the Demo­cratic and Repub­li­can na­tional com­mit­tees treat the vot­ers with dig­nity and re­spect by rep­re­sent­ing the peo­ple based upon the votes.

It is un­ac­cept­able to have a nom­i­nee that didn’t par­tic­i­pate in the process or did not re­ceive suf­fi­cient sup­port (votes). It is im­per­a­tive that the vot­ers are treated with dig­nity and re­spect. There­fore Mrs. Hil­lary Clin­ton, Mr. Bernie San­ders, Mr. Ted Cruz and Mr. Don­ald Trump are the only vi­able can­di­dates.

The def­i­ni­tion of a del­e­gate is “a per­son autho­rized to act for oth­ers.”
