On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.
A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.
In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again. If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.
Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?
I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.
No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.
Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.
The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.
Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?
I just want to say its great to see you back Dee
The ferral guvment puts it to me hourly. The state guvment only puts it to one or two times a day.
This One party system is NOT working for me it's all the same just different name REP. DEM. one party . we do have the best Gov. that money can buy the shame of it is is WE the People Can't afford it . I was on the fence But now i 'm 100% behind Donald Trump no matter what. Nice to see you back Dee!!.
I agree with you. Enough of this one party system.
I agree with You! . enough is enough ! Nice to talk to you again it's been awhile since i recived one of these command center forum .
Seriously? Are we bound by a system of a few greedy people or are we a free people living in the land of the free? How can this be? Colorado had an election without voters? As you can see, I have many questions here and am in need of some answers!
Tell them Mr. Trump. The system is in need of an overhaul! Not working out too well for me!
Welcome back, Dee.
This corrupt gruberment and both parties have made it impossible to actually live your life without a lawyer in hand to make sure you are following all the rules, guidelines, applications, procedures, permits, fines, penalties and permissions. oh, and LAWS. What the repukes did in Colorado was reprehensible. Yes they did it awhile ago, but dam, this process should be transparent and simple. They are TRYING to overload us with Government and Party and Media Propaganda.
We could, I bet, throw out everything that has been written, ruled, legislated, permitted, and sold to us as a package full of BS, throw out EVERYTHING that they have done over the last 40 years—AND WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF.
We the people need to prepare for fighting the enemies we have elected. We allowed the enemy access to govern.
People have COMPLAINED about this for years now, but you ask them " When was the last time YOU went to a city meeting, county or let your voice be heard at state or party meetings ? " I'll bet that is far and few between , MAYBE 4 years ago. We hear about how busy we are and how they don't listen to us, maybe if they saw US FACE TO FACE in mass they would get the message.
We the people need to GET INVOLED , go to the school board meetings and see what they are teaching our future generations ( Civics , History ) . Don't assume that all this revisionist history and Government classes are teaching is right. They need to use the ORIGINAL DOC'S and then they can teach the real current material with REFERENCES so that they ( the kids ) can learn to be able to research and think for them selves instead of what the MSM wants them to hear.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS GET INVOLED , IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW !
