Will Colorado’s voterless caucus set a dangerous precedent in America’s election system?
The National GOP’s power is so great nationwide that Colorado decided to hold a caucus that no citizen of Colorado was allowed to vote for who they wanted to nominate on the republican ticket for president. In my opinion this type of behavior sets a dangerous precedent for not only caucuses, but also primaries and general elections.
Although The State of Colorado and others claim this action is legal, it has left a bad taste in the mouths of most Americans and a foul odor in the air. Like myself, even if their favorite candidate loses an election or caucus, we like to know that we were given a chance to VOTE. Donald Trump has every right to scream to people on TV that he feels he was cheated, simply because he was.
The fact that Trump didn’t actively campaign in Colorado doesn’t mean that they can pull “dirty tricks” then call him a whiner when he complains that Cruz has pulled another fast one as he did in the Iowa Caucus when he told his crew to publicly state that Ben Carson had suspended his campaign, then asked the Carson’s delegates to vote for him. That’s two good ones for Lying Ted.But the important issue here is not who wins the nomination, rather it is the dangerous precedent being set for the American election system. In the future, the nation’s president could be elected by people who become powerful enough to say they speak for the people and there is no need for them to vote. Scary thought? Yes, it is a scary thought but a very plausible thought. In every way, both major parties are slowly chipping away at our Constitutional rights. They have slowly passed unconstitutional laws to infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. What’s next, selecting nominees or elected officials without citizens being assured of their right to vote! Shame on you Colorado GOP!
