Well, the Colorado GOP, which has been roiled by a whole lot of rebellious anti-establishment RINO-accusation troubles in the past couple of years (some of which I witnessed during my 2013 book tour) managed to run a fast one around the end last August. The GOP caucuses will not pick a 2016 presidential candidate for nomination on March 1. Oh, the Democrats will still do that, but not the Republicans. I wonder how that’s going to effect the turnout. I wonder why the GOP powers that be did that.
There is an ongoing battle against the “moderate” Bush-style Republican ideas (open borders, comprehensive immigration reform [read that: amnesty for illegals for the cheap labor], ignoring the Muslim doctrine which drives ISIS and the larger jihad movement – and most importantly taking Donald Trump out of nomination contention by whatever means possible).
Alas, it looks like the Colorado establishment, country-club GOP types have won this part of the war.
As an unaffiliated registered voter I knew I would have to temporarily register as a Republican to vote for Donald Trump in the primary election. But I’m not going to have that opportunity and neither will any of Trump’s Colorado supporters. Isn’t that special? Curious about where and when to go to vote in the March 1 caucuses, I found this today, in the August 25, 2015 issue of the Denver Post:
Colorado will not vote for a Republican candidate for president at its 2016 caucus after party leaders approved a little-noticed shift that may diminish the state’s clout in the most open nomination contest in the modern era.
The GOP executive committee has voted to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll after the national party changed its rules to require a state’s delegates to support the candidate that wins the caucus vote.
That is a nifty cover story. I don’t believe it for a second. This is about stopping Donald Trump.
The move makes Colorado the only state so far to forfeit a role in the early nomination process, according to political experts, but other caucus states are still considering how to adapt to the new rule.
“It takes Colorado completely off the map” in the primary season, said Ryan Call, a former state GOP chairman.
Republicans still will hold precinct caucus meetings in early 2016 to begin the process of selecting delegates for the national convention — but the 37 delegates are not pledged to any specific candidate…
Now why on Earth did that really happen? My best guess is that Colorado’s establishment country-club GOP power brokers and honchos are as reluctant to give any support to Donald Trump as the entire rest of the National Republican Party. So, this move pretty well neutralizes Trump out here in cowboy country. Will other state GOP committees do the same? Wouldn’t surprise me. They really don’t like their front-runner – in the least.
Is this a great country or what?
I like Trump and I intend to vote for him. The way I see it, he’s our last hope to stave off and quarantine the jihad movement.
