How does "Taxation without representation" fall against whole states with no voter turnout? No Federal Taxes?

Which states have no voter turnout or where all of the citizens do not pay taxes?

Colorado desperately wants a conservative.
Colorado desperately doesn't want a bigot.
Colorado Hates Feds.

Screw them all if Trump is out.

That really has nothing to do with the question I asked or the initial comments you made.

Of course Anti-Trump people are going to say "oh there is no voter fraud". Really? How do you cancel primaries and then just GIVE Cruz the delegates? Explain how that works exactly. Explain how you WIN a state, and yet they just GIVE the delegates to Cruz?

Oh and while we're here... explain how you can have two parents who are Canadian citizens, have a child in Canada, and yet claim you are a natural born American citizen? Cruz isn't even eligible to be running for President.

But hey.. facts and truth don't matter anymore in America. They scream and yell about how voting is so important. Why is it important? They choose the victor years in advance. They give the illusion that what we do matters. But it doesn't. Votes by Americans (and illegals in California) are just turned over to some mysterious people in the state who then choose who THEY want. Your vote does not matter. Your vote does not count. Hell.. they probably just throw the ballot boxes away at the end of the day.

You know why everything is "Trump is this.. " and "Trump is that..."? It's a distraction. You got Trump, Cruz, and Sanders all fighting over nothing. Meanwhile where is Hillary? She's pretty much kept her mouth shut because she knows shes a guarantee. Keep in mind that Kasick hasn't dropped out. He flat out said that he's only staying in the race to take votes from Trump. Keep in mind that Rubio, while no longer campaigning, never OFFICIALLY dropped out of the race. Keep in mind that the GOP is just DYING to push Paul Ryan out the gate.

America has become one big corporate farce. And its high time something was done about it. The American Revolution was started over FAR less.

"If no one votes in Colorado, does Federal Taxes against Taxation without representation mean anything"

Which state did Trump win where they gave the delegates to Cruz?

Academic now as the people did not get to vote. That is the whole tenet of the outrage that seems to be getting diluted by those that want to justify it as it suits their emotional state.

The bottom line is that people lost their vote in Colorado and that is something to be angry about and certainly something people should question and pursue.

Was this illegal? If so, why are charges not being brought up?

No. Gay rights is not something Colorado is willing to budge on. We're also not budging on the fact our social programs don't need the Left and we refuse to suffer for others.

Not sure why the sudden outrage on Camacho Dorito's part, this is the same process they use in North Dakota, Wyoming, Guam, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands. Did eh just figure this out?

If you live in Colorado, you don't have a say. Ted Cruz has been foisted upon you by the establishment.

Maybe if he expanded his campaign to the more educated, he could start to pull out some votes and walk away with this primary.

Who is Camacho Dorito??

Trump already complained about the other states.
Generally I don't think it matters who has complained or what the rules are that people should have known.
That's a smokescreen.
The anger is quite simply about people not being allowed to vote. Now, this is not a general election of course and the parties can choose who they want, but I think it's healthy that the American public wake up to the fact that in a two party system (effectively) if BOTH parties choose who they want, then ultimately the establishment can easily subvert the will of the people.
On that score i think Trump is doing the country a service by forcing this into the limelight.

And my question to you, is if the whole state doesn't vote, that does not apply to Taxation without representation? At all? All of them?

Trump. His orange-skinned ass should be in a sequel to Idiocracy.

Primaries are a relatively new thing, they never had a say before that. If the people do not want their will subverted they would not vote for either party.

Exactly. That is the point I'm trying to drive home.

The only reason this is an issue is because of sheer ignorance on Trump and his supporters.

People have no right to complain when they don't even know what the hell is going on.

Basically if he even winks at the Gay Rights, we're not paying Federal Taxes. We want a Conservative President. We're also not joking and the only people that have told the Feds to #### off at all.
