Colorado GOP chair, Steve House, is the Establishment swine to be held most responsible for the outrageous box-out of over one million of his state’s voters, who had almost no say in the voting or delegate election process.
Military personnel have the most to be furious about, as nearly 10% of Colorado’s population consists of active duty service members or veterans.
A special forces veteran friend shared his story about a phone confrontation he just had with House.
I kept calling Steve House until he finally picked up.
Me: “Hello this is Steve? Do you have any regard for the democratic process in your state you scumbag?”
Then I hung up on him.
A text exchange followed:
House: “What a low life bullsh*t thing to do. Coward.”
Me: “You’re a piece of sh*t. You want to have a conversation with me a**hole? Then call me. You have my number.”
(Then I sent him a pic of the GOP Colorado tweet “We did it” #Never Trump)
House: “You called me and hung up. I don’t have time for people who call names without cause and who are obviously of low moral standards. If you did just a little more reading you would find out we didn’t send that because we got hacked. You’re going to call and apologize when we show the world who did it.”
Me: “West Point grad, and former Special Forces vet, buddy boy. You of all people have the audacity to question MY moral and ethical standards? Yeah, you guys got ‘hacked.’ LMAO Gift your state’s 34 (delegates) to Cruz, by changing the f**king rules, thereby negating the Will of the People in a voter-less process? You should be ashamed of yourself. Have a nice day, scumbag. TRUMP 2016. He’s about to virtually run the table on Teddy Boy.”
House: “We didn’t change the rules and used the same ones we used in 2012.”
Me: “Sleep well, Sweetheart.”
The Gateway Pundit: “Colorado GOP Lied About #NeverTrump Tweet – The Account Was Not Hacked, It Was Posted by Trump-Hating Insider”
The Republican party said this tweet (was illegitimate), saying the account was hacked.
But that is a lie.
The party deleted the tweet only three minutes after it was posted – meaning they still had control of the account.
It was not hacked – it was a Republican party insider.
Denver Post: “Colorado Republicans Cancel Presidential Vote at 2016 Caucus”
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 who wins the caucus vote.
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.
The Colorado system often favors anti-establishment candidates who draw a dedicated following among activists — as evidenced by Rick Santorum’s victory in 2012 caucus. So the party’s move may hurt GOP contenders such as Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Rand Paul, who would have received a boost if they won the state.
Bustle: “Why Isn’t The Colorado GOP Voting On Super Tuesday? A Caucus Rule Has Changed The Game”
On nearly every list of states voting on Super Tuesday, Colorado has an asterisk or side note next to it. It’s going to be a weird caucus for Colorado Republicans this year, since the attention grabbing aspect of caucusing, the straw poll to choose a presidential candidate, isn’t going to happen. Why isn’t the Colorado GOP voting on Super Tuesday?
The state GOP leaders of Colorado decided to cancel the vote in protest to the GOP’s new rule that mandates delegates from caucus states to vote for the caucus winner at each convention. Caucus goers will still show up to their precincts on Super Tuesday to elect the delegates, but by not directly voting for the presidential candidates, the Colorado party leaders can get around the rule that pledges delegates to a specific candidate.
