Republican Party Scared of Allowing Its Members to Vote

I like how Colorado's Republican party decided "it cost too much" to allow the voters to vote.

Followed closely by Indiana who can't wait ignore the voters and let the party faithful decide what is right for America for the lowly uneducated voters.

So I have an idea, let start calling the Republican Establishment the Republican Politburo.

I mean its pretty much a Communist Front now anyway.

The only ones I see who support such a move are die hard died in the wool Cruz supporters who seem to like overriding the will of the people on a technicality.

Which really seems to only drive home the point, Ted Cruz is a lawyer.

And you know what 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the sea are, don't you?

And I can accept Ted Cruz as President, if that is the will of the voters. The problem is, so far its not the will of the voters and makes the Republican Party look just as crooked as it actually is.

This behavior is exactly why Trump gets to many votes. Because the Republican Party has screwed over the people one too many times. Yet there they go again.

3 One day Arthur Phillip Dent walked out of his house
and saw a wrecking crew ready to knock down said house.
You know this story? Hitchhikers' Guide, chapter one.
Anyhow, the highway planning commissioner said it was
Dent's fault that he did not know about the plan to build a
road through the living room, and Dent should have
read the notice posted on the pin-board in the highway
planning office. Not the Department's fault that you cannot
be bothered to check the board in an obscure office across
town to see if your house is slated to be destroyed.
You know that decision was made last year, right?

4 The Chairman (Mao) of the Colorado Republican/Communist Party said that the election was cancelled because "too many voters would come out". This fine Kommissar's name is Steve House and he is one low down, dirty, Communist son of a bitch.

5 Rush is right in that Trump and Cruz had to play by the same rules;
Savage was right in that the rules were created for the purpose of
confounding outsiders and enforced by Never Trump fanatics.

But really, the colorado primary-shit-show has prepared us for the
national cavalcade-of-shit that we are going to see in Cleveland.

6 The Republican Party is not "the people". They, as a party, can nominate however they want.

If Trump is such a deal making wizard, why can't he figure this out? The rules weren't a secret. Cruz worked for support and got thousands to come out and vote for representative delegates. Trump put in no effort in Colorado except to whine about it. And for those in Colorado bitching about things, get off your ass and get involved.

We don't live in a democracy. You should thank God that you don't. But, we are moving to some form of socialist tyranny so enjoy what you have left.

Lastly, everyone knows that Lincoln wasn't even close on delegate count going into his convention?

It's a political party. Don't like the party, don't participate. In the general election, write in trump. Or orange juice can. Or stay home. But stop whining.

8 Let me get this straight.
A year ago, before Trump was even running for office, or had just announced. A bunch of clairvoyant evil geniuses conspired to cheat Trump and derail his election.
By August everything had been debated and set in place, there was no outcry by anybody, even Trump had no problem with it.
Then the evil geniuses forced the whole country to walk through a poppy field so they would forget what happened.
Now they have awoken and even their hero Trump can't remember why he was OK with it right before he fell asleep in august of last year.
Somebody could write a bestseller based on a fantasy like that.

9 Trump should have never agreed not to run as a Independent. In fact, he should have run as one. He would win and the Republican Establishment would have learned something.
To be honest. Trump, Cruz or ?. I can't believe the average American will elect the evil witch or the commie.

10 ...except the story is totally bogus. CO had their caucus last month. It actually made the papers. The real story is that Trump is too stupid to actually make himself aware of the rules and too lazy to hire someone who is. The other real story is all of the dolts who are so incurious that they just run with the bullshit that he spews without bothering to check the basic facts.

11 Also, the Indiana delegates will be tied to the statewide vote on the first round of the convention...just like every other delegation throughout the freaking history of the party. After the first vote all bets are off...always has it been thus.

12 From what I've seen, the changes were made last summer with the intent of clearing the road for Jeb!. With the intended beneficiary out of the picture, someone is going to win the delegates.

It may as well be the candidate that is paying attention to the situation, rather than the candidate paying attention to the microphone.
