In what has to be the biggest slap across the face delivered by establishment to the American voters in at least the past three days, a senior GOP official bluntly tells CNBC that the primaries and caucuses really aren’t necessary because the Establishment selects the candidate, not the voters. Curly Haugland, a senior GOP official and an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota. He blames the media for the fact that voters think they control who represents them in the presidential election. Haughland, a royal POS, has come up with a list of new rules, all developed in order to deny Donald Trump the nomination.
“The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here.”
One of the rule changes says that candidates no longer need to win 8 primaries or caucuses to qualify as a candidate in a brokered convention. Haughland’s proposal is very simple. Any candidate can be eligible for consideration as long as they have won one delegate. Get ready for the return of Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush. And since states that don’t hold caucuses or primaries still receive delegates, they could literally make anyone in America the GOP candidate to run against Hillary.
Emineth, a former chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party said he was worried that party leaders were planning on resorting to shenanigans during the convention:
“You have groups of people who are going to try to take over the rules committee. [That] could totally change everything, and mess things up with the delegates. And people across the country will be very frustrated.”
“It’s important that the Republican National Committee has transparency on what they’re doing [on the rules] going into the convention and what happens in the convention. That’s because of “all the votes that have been cast in caucuses and primaries. Don’t disenfranchise those voters. Because at the end of the day, our goal is to beat Hillary Clinton or whoever their [Democratic] nominee is in November.”
