  • GOP super delegates of Colorado went to Cruz, despite ...

    GOP voters are fed up with the GOP and DEM party, because they no longer feel they are being represented by them. They view those parties as Big Money establishment.
    What infuriated them in Colorado, was the fact, the before the vote was out, all GOP superdelegates went into the Cruz camp.
    Here is what a Donald Trump supporter did:

    I wouldn't get too wound up about it. Colorado has been a Dumbocrat state for a very long time.

    BTW...any time you see someone burning something at a polling place, it's staged. Police will arrest you for trying that for real.

      That looks like his kitchen, not a polling place. Also, it is becoming a big deal despite the liberal control over certain states because both parties are doing this now. They're both maneuvering to disregard what the voters want and have their delegates vote for what's best for their parties. I've heard repeatedly how the GOP is concerned about what Trump is doing to the party, with no mention of what's best for the country. They care about the GOP first, the country second. Same as the democrats.

        1. The GOP has no superdelegates, only the democrats do.
        2. Each State has it's own rule how delegates are awarded.
        3. If they would have gone to Trump you wouldn't be hearing one peep from the Trump campaign or his willfully ignorant supporters!

          The have the same concept, just less of them. Each states has three delegates that are made up of that States RNC committee members.

          https://www.gop.com/the-official-gui...ating-process/

          RNC Members are automatically national convention delegates and include the state’s national committeeman, national committeewoman, and state chair.
          So that's basically 150 'super delegates' that get to pick who they want to vote for.

            What happened in Colorado was a fraud : no caucus, no primaries but a conspiracy to prevent Trump to win .

              Wrong, as usual.

              Hint don't listen to Trump.

                One establishment, 2 make-believe Parties.

                As I have been saying for years, the Republican Party is going to have to admit that it is run by people that despise Conservatives, and downgrade itself to a strictly Centrist Party.
                Those are the people that this party has been focused on for over two decades in any case.

                And a new party will rise to represent Conservatives, such as the TEA Party.
                Dems that don't like the increasingly fanatical Leftwrds tilt of their party can switch to the centrists and you will have 3 parties with roughly 1/3rd of the electorate each.

                Why worry?

                  Well, the system is already gamed to ensure no 3rd party stands a real chance, so I'm unsure that could happen. If there is one bipartisan unifier, it's that the GOP and Dems hate the idea of a 3rd party challenger.

                    Both the Democrat and Republican parties are now minorities in terms of voter registration... Serious minorities. Neither is listening to voters and if it isn't this election, it is going to be one in the very near future where they're both going to find they've been kicked to the curb and their candidates are no longer the ones being voted into office at all.

                    Sort of, what if they held an election and nobody showed up to vote...

                      So we had 3 go to Cruz, with what, 34 still up for grabs?

                        Nope. Sen Cruz got them all.

                        Here is a detail look at the CO process. It basically was a series of very small caucuses that produced delegates to the next level. Caucuses goes did NOT vote for candidates they voted on who to send to the next level caucus.

                        http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P16/CO-R

                        Tuesday 1 March 2016: Precinct Caucuses meet in each precinct at 7p MST to choose delegates to the County Assemblies and District Conventions. Caucuses last about 1.5 hours. There are 2,917 precincts.

                        There is no formal system applied in the Precinct Caucus to relate the presidential preference of the participants to the choice of the precinct's delegates to the Colorado County Assemblies and District Conventions; (NOTE: It is the District Conventions and the State Convention that will actually elect Republican National Convention delegates to presidential contenders).
                        So on Tuesday March 1st the met and selected county delegates.

                        Tuesday 1 March - Saturday 26 March 2016: County Assemblies. County Assemblies elect delegates to the Congressional District and State Conventions.
                        Over the next 25 days those county delegates met and selected delegates to the next level.

                        during the first week in April the districts met and selected the State convention delegates. The districts also selected the first 15 delegates to the national convention. Sen Cruz got all 15.

                        Finally:

                        Saturday 9 April 2016: The Colorado State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention chooses 13 of 37 delegates from Colorado to the Republican National Convention.

                        National Convention Delegates are bound according to the Presidential candidate (or uncommitted) indicated on their intent to run form.
                        In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Colorado's Republican Party, will attend the convention by virtue of their position, bound to the candidate of choice.
                        Key point, yes there was a caucus at the lowest level. They drove the process.

                        “To talk of many things:

                        Of cabbages—and kings—
                        And why the sea is boiling hot—
                        And whether pigs have wings.”

                          So you get arrested when you burn your Party membership document ?

                            You would get arrested for starting a fire in a public building.

                              If you were to set fire to it in a public polling place, as I stated quite clearly. That is, if the people around you didn't just beat you into the ground for it. Setting fires in public places is highly unpopular.

                              Of course, if this did take place in this man;s kitchen, then it was staged anyway in order for the vid to be made, so who cares about his feelings? And who says his feelings are representative of anyone else?
