The Use of Superdelegates in the 2008 Democratic Primaries sign now

We the citizens of the United States of America hereby declare that if we cannot assuredly rely upon the Democratic Party to ensure that our presidential nominee is chosen by the people via elected delegates and thus through a democratic process, then the Democratic Party cannot assuredly rely upon our participation in the 2008 General Election. We stand united in our objection to the use of Superdelegates in this year's primary election whose very formation was intended to enhance voter sentiment as well as prevent chaos in the event that there was not enough elected delegates to allow any remaining candidate to win the nomination. If each candidate has, through a fair and democratic process, obtained an exact amount of delegates, then and only then will we accept the implementation of superdelegate votes, and then only if these Superdelegates uphold the intention behind their very creation and vote for the candidate with the most delegates or in accordance with the Superdelegates' constituency. Anything short of this fair and equitable method of electing the 2008 Democratic Presidential Nominee would not only undermine the the very reason for the existence of Superdelegates, but would undermine the true voice of American voters as well as the democratic process itself. 796 individuals (elected or not) should not have the power to sway the outcome of millions of votes by citizens who have the right to expect their votes to stand alone, be valued in their own right and left uncompromised by a small number of Washington insiders. In signing this petition we are asking Howard Dean and the DNC to hear our voices and allow our democratic process to take its course and in so doing, allow the candidate who ends up with the most elected delegates to rightfully take his/her place as the Democratic Partys Nominee for President of the United States. Whatever happens, we respectfully expect Howard Dean and the DNC to seriously consider what steps will be taken to ensure that our presidential nominee be elected by the citizens of the United States and not selected by the preferences of a small group of Washington insiders.
