The Colorado caucus was actually cancelled as part of the GOP plan to stop outsiders some time ago. Colorado has often favoured outsiders, so it was deemed by theGOP that the people should not be involved in selecting the candidate...

Colorado Republicans cancel 2016 Presidential Caucus

They would sooner destroy the Republican party than let Trump be the nominee.
Same with Sanders.

Without Trump, The GOP is going to suffer historic losses as many will stay home. It's embarrassing that both parties are using procedure to thwart the will of the voters. If the GOP thinks that Trump supporters will just fall in line and support another person forced on them, well the GOP will just have to see how foolish that will be.

Sanders and Trump should put their differences aside and run a national unity ticket. That would scare the hell out of both Party's.

But in this case it was not a matter of the GOP suppressing the people's right to vote. It was a blunder on the part of the Trump campaign and they couldn't get their act together.

I posted this link earlier. It's worth a read.

Really? So we are blaming Trumps campaign for not...cheating? Then when he calls it out we call him a whiner because he should know the game....HOLY # he is trying to end this and everyone is still complaining. He is doing what ANYONE who is an outsider wants to do. Show the establishment for who they really are....and as you can see it worked.

What is happening is that social media and the internet are taking apart the political establishment. They have been able to get away with this for decades, buying delegates, sure, but answer me this...


If Donald Trump went in and bought EVERY delegate, which he could, ALL of you as well as the MSM would accuse him of buying the election.

I really want him to hit the delegate count, which he will, and then the US will explode.

Are you really suggesting that an understanding of the delegate process should be the deciding factor on nominations over the one man/woman one vote principal? Maybe people with IQ's less than 100 should have their vote taken away in America? Would that work for you?

Be very careful what you wish for, because Colorado has just been chosen based on political insider knowledge of the game. Say hello to 1% of the population choosing your leaders.

What cheating occurred? It appears that the literature his campaign handed-out with the list of Trump delegates to vote for were incorrect. That is on Trump's campaign and no one else.



but answer me this...

Of course we would say he was buying the election. That's exactly what that would be. What's your point?

I suggested nothing of the sort. I merely pointed-out that there does not appear to be any voter suppression happening here. It was a mistake by the Trump campaign that is to blame.

No. Why would you even suggest such a thing? I've not said anything to give you the slightest inkling I would support something like that.

Just as most Trump supporters won't back Cruz, most Sander's supporters won't back Hillary.




“Bernie or Bust!” That’s the defiant rallying cry of the Bernie Sanders hardcore, the pledge made by Sanders supporters that intend to vote for him and him alone in the general election – whether his name’s on the ballot or not. It’s not just a disaffected few making a stand either; these ‘Bernie or Busters’ don’t constitute a mere handful of the senator’s many devotees. In November, a reported 33% of Bernie Sanders supporters won’t give Hillary Clinton their vote if she wins the Democratic bid. That’s a sizable chunk of Dem voters – over 41% of them so far – saying it’s either Bernie Sanders for President, or nobody at all.

Then why are you not saying that Cruz just bought it? Why the double standard?

The Colorado Caucus is basically buying delegates. That is all it is. So, a candidate can go in and 'buy' his delegates. You are using the MSM talking point of blaming Trumps campaign. You are so blinded by your hate of Trump you think it is ok for the common man/woman not to vote or have a say.

At this point Trump should call Bernie and ask if he wants a VP slot and run independent. They would CRUSH anyone who ran in November...

Back in 2015 the GOP changed the rules to remove the people's vote from the selection of delegates. The precinct caucuses did not directly choose the delegate counts/ splits by candidate. This means that just a small percentage of people in Colorado ended up choosing the delegates. Bottom line is that it is not representative of the people of Colorado. Is that cheating? I guess it depends - it's not cheating within the rules that were set, but it is cheating people out of their right to vote on the nominee.

To not see this as a problem is to close your eyes to the subversion of the voting process just because the outcome is agreeable to you.

Looks like the plutocratic establishment never runs out of dirty tricks. They're just gonna outright assassinate him eventually.

You seem to be saying that it's ok that the people of Colorado did not get to vote directly on the nominee because Trump's campaign was not clued up enough on the changed process to remove their direct vote... is that not what you said? Sure seemed like it.

The anti-Trump crowd will turn a blind eye and make excuses for anything as long as it serves their aim/personal bias.

Why even vote for a party that steals votes and delegates?

There was a time when Law enforcement or the DOJ would have gotten involved over something like this....now it appears it is just business as usual..



WHY?

THE DNC, RNC are private organizations...the Caucuses to select a nominee are just elaborate company surveys meant to emulate the electoral college (which is gov).

Meaning...the RNC as a private organization is not bound to follow any rules or policy that they themselves don't make up.

Involving the DOJ would be like the DOJ investigating general mills for not selling apple jacks after a customer survey where people said they loved it.

General elections voting and delegate counts etc. are the purview of DOJ...not the private nomination processes of the RNC and DNC...private orgs.

Which rules are set in concrete and which rules can be changed at will? Trump, not being a political republican elite, would be left out of the info loop of rule changes.


I think more than half the rules can be changed at the convention (based on rule 42). This includes changing the delegates needed for the nomination in the first round. So, it's feasible that if Trump got 1237 delegates going in, they could change the threshold to 1238.

This is why its so important for the GOP to place people who are not loyal to Trump in Trump's delegate positions that he won during Primary's. Whilst they would still have to vote for Trump in round 1 of voting, they are free to vote on rule changes before the voting even starts.

Not entirely sure , but i think they can even vote to unbind all delegates in round 1 and ignore all state primary and caucus results


Doubly plus fraud.

Yeah they can just waive a wand and change the delegate threshold to 1,000,000,000+a border collie +
a leprechaun+The Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda+some Doritos nacho chips as prerequisite requirements for nomination.

They are appointing who they want. Forgot about the voters/proles. Inner party has already assigned us our new leader.
