I would rather trust an outsider who is standing up for the rights of the people to select their candidates than one who is playing back-door shady games.

You can say thats the rules all you want. The rules are wrong. People are voting, then their reps show they have no respect by disrgarding the voters.
The system needs to be fixed.

People are going to be furious and will leave the republican party by the millions.

My husband and I had a "lively" discussion just this morning and he agrees with you, saying that the rules are "wrong"...

My position is that the rules apply to all equally, so they are fair. The problem is that most people think they DO or SHOULD have a right to elect a political party's representative. That's just not the case. We can participate in the party's election, but in the end, they put forth their candidate and it may have nothing to do with who the people wanted for the party.

I think you're right. And I think it will be good for the country. I would like to see BOTH major parties implode or split into several, so the people would have more of a choice. Maybe Trump's actions will help bring this about.

How about you proving it was NOT sent to people to Washington state?

Even the politco article makes it clear it was recieved by Washinton state residents and the email made it clear that this was a reminder for people who already submitted a declaration by the deadlline.

What part of "if" do you rabid Trump-phobes not understand?

"You can still be elected as a Trump Delegate at your GOP County Convention this Saturday!” If]If you have submitted a Declaration of Candidacy for Delegate form to your GOP County Chairman by the assigned deadline of 10:00am on April 6th."

Show the rest of this redacted email to put ot into context.

Prove that there were not other email reminders sent before this one.


youre apparently having issues with reading comprehension or you didnt read the entire article.

As to the rest of your post, everything is available on the link i have in the OP, its really not my fault if you dont like it. You can look up other sources if you wish.

here have some koolaid

Im a constitutional conservative as is my husband.

We dont like the rules any better than Trump or the rest of the people do. The difference is , we havent liked them for well over a decade, not just since Trump has ran.

That is still no excuse (im sure you agree) on the part of Trump or anyone else running for ignorance of the rules.

If youre going to run, you should probably research and have staff on hand who know what they are actually doing.
If you truly ARE an outsider then you should know that your chances are slimmer because other people DO know these things, and you should prepare for that.

Trump and his supporters have a problem with accountability

That is your problem.

You let someone else spin the facts and form your opinion for you without looking at the actual email,applying reason amd logic and seeing for yourself that the mediaite spin is full of crap.

You Trump supporters sure do like personal attacks, this isnt about me, the thread is about what the thread is about.

Its there for all to read, and its pretty straight forward, you dont have to like it, thats not really my problem.

Have a wonderful day sweetheart!

And that's Trumps biggest weakness, he has no idea how to run a campaign. He's been making mistakes since day one and has been learning from them but there is so much to the game that he can't keep up. You'd think, for a guy whose been wanting to run since at least 2000 he would have all his ducks in a row, but he doesn't at all. And his supporters seem to think he's so great, the greatest business mind ever with the greatest minds working for him.

Well, he sucks at campaigning. He's great at getting attention from the media but that's about it.

I'll say it. Trump didn't make his fortune by being a good businessman. He did it by being a crook. A dirty lying step on the back of others crook.

There is no way his team of advisors aren't aware of every little detail.

This is intentional. Throwing the race to democrats is very much intentional. He's a fraud.

Could you please provide a source or reference for these allegations, JoeCanada11? Or, are you merely saying what you think is true?

Common sense of course. The only way you make billions of dollars is by taking advantage of others. It's not rocket science.

This isn't personal at all, it's more like evening the playing field. Your allowed to spout off about how you basically hate Trump here DAILY, and I just raised some counter points to your never ending stream of hate for Trump. I dislike all the other candidates, but I won't be spending time making threads about how horrible I think they are, or every mistake they've made. If you'd like to, by all means have at it, but don't expect everyone to have your same viewpoint and don't complain when they don't. That just being ignorant and you're smarter than that.



The man is running for the highest office in the land, he SHOULD be scrutinized.


So should Rafael, Bernie and Hillary, but amazingly we never see any "scrutinizing" threads from you about these three even though there's a cornucopia of material we all could draw from to easily start 100 negative threads about them. Maybe you'd like to look into that and see for yourself.



And if he doesn't even have the discipline to do his due diligence in RUNNING for the office, he shouldn't be considered in actually filling the roll of POTUS, we've had 8yrs of a man who has no idea what hes doing, we don't need another term of the same.


Obama was clearly unqualified, but I'd expect that from a "community organizer" and that's one huge reason I didn't vote for the lying fool. Now to compare a "community organizer" to a billionaire real estate mogul is clearly a stretch. As I stated before what you like to condemn as ignorance of the convoluted, ever-changing-to-suit-their-agenda, GOP "delegate system" I see as someone who's an outsider to this crooked wheel greasing delegate system and that's a damn good thing. And if Trump were to capitalize on this and "buy" all these delegates with trips and gifts as Cruz has done you just say he's buying the election.

Trump is a huge threat to them all.

If he gets the potus, everyone else might as well forget about running in his 2nd term.

If the rules say that all children with blonde hair and blue eyes cannot be tackled in a game of football, is that fair?

It applies equally, after all.

eh hes got a 50-55 point lead in ny, and polling well in a few other states so i dont think we have seen the last of the trumpster


Even if he gets the nomination, he will never make it past Hillary or Bernie.

He's done.


The fact that you still cling to the belief that Sanders has a chance at the nomination just makes me take this entire statement with a grain of salt.

For those of you who think the party establishment are just "playing by the rules", you really need to look at this:

If this is how Cruz won Colorado, then this IS gestapo, thug tactics.
They are not using any rules that ethical people would use.


originally posted by: UKTruth
So it seems that at the Colorado State convention, Colorado Republicans for Liberty – a Cruz offshoot group - handed out a 'Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Donald Trump'

Trying to find out if this document is real or not, but if is then it might be what Paul Mannafort was talking about when he mentioned 'gestapo tactics'


Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Donald Trump

Whereas Donald Trump is not a Republican; and

Whereas Donald Trump is a demagogue who is using fear, hate, and lies to assemble a mob in support of an agenda of socialist policy, unlimited government, and strongman rule; and

Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the Western alliance which is the basis of American security; and

Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the system of international trade which is the basis of American prosperity; and

Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the freedom of the press that is the basis of American liberty; and

Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the rule of law which is the basis of American civil society; and

Whereas Donald Trump has mocked those who risked their lives to fight for America when he avoided doing so; and

Whereas Donald Trump has acted as an apologist for America’s enemy Vladimir Putin and other brutal anti-American foreign tyrants; and

Whereas Donald Trump has set himself forth as an open exponent of lust, greed, and other vices antithetical to Judeo-Christian ethics and the moral fiber necessary to sustain a republic; and

Whereas Donald Trump has demonstrated that he has no respect for the truth, and

Whereas Donald Trump has defrauded thousands of ordinary Americans of their life savings; and

Whereas Donald Trump has, in the course of the present campaign, committed acts potential prosecutable as incitement to riot, a federal crime punishable by up to five years in prison; and

Whereas Donald Trump has knowingly acted to degrade the Republican presidential nominating process to a vile level that can only serve to drive people of talent and integrity out of the party and assist in the election of the party’s opponents; and

Whereas the nomination of Donald Trump for president would insure a landslide defeat for the Republican Party nationwide in the fall, and deeply damage the Republican Party and the conservative movement for years, and possibly decades to come; and

Whereas a vote for Donald Trump by any member of the Colorado delegation to the Republican National Convention would dishonor and disgrace the Colorado Republican Party;

Therefore, be it resolved that: The Colorado Republican Party forbids any of its delegates to the Republican National Convention to vote for Donald Trump for president or vice president on the first ballot or any other ballot, and The Colorado Republican Party asks its delegates to national convention to pledge on their honor to do everything in their power to help secure the presidential nomination for someone other than Donald Trump. Donald Trump has threatened the Republican Party with mob violence. Let’s tell him where to go!

Colorado Republicans for Liberty

What??? It doesn't apply equally... It only applies to children with blond hair and blue eyes... What a silly question...

Bernie has an $18 trillion spending plan and a huge tax hike to bloat government and expand its power. I think it's reasonable to assume he has a far greater chance of winning it all than 'The Establishment' would ever dare let on. Why wouldn't they want that?

I think they would and do. Our corrupt Congress' spending record indicates Bernie is exactly the right guy for them.

I included Bernie because if by some chance something happens to Hillary, Bernie still beats him in the polls. That does not mean I think he has a chance to beat Hillary at this point and time. Because he doesn't.

Perhaps you should inquire as to the proper context of statements before making assumptions. Otherwise, your statements are only worth taking with a grain of salt.

Republican voters aren't THAT different than democrat voters.

Hillary won the popular vote, in 2008. More than half of DNC voters supported her -- 18 million cast votes for her in the primary. But did the DNC lose all those Hillary voters after they gifted Obama with 600,000 votes in Michigan when his name wasn't even on the ballot -- per his own doing?

No. In fact, they went on to vote The Establishment's Chosen One for a second term, in 2012.

The voters are enablers. They will keep on enabling these two parties when the GOP gives Cruz the nomination.
