The media is still hyping, for every state, the narrative that “Cruz is grabbing Trump Delegates”.
THIS IS A NON-STORY–IF YOU KNOW THE RULES AND PLAY THE GAME
The Republican voters who DO know the rules and play, or have played, the game, are very familiar with this. For the rest of the voters, PLEASE DON’T PANIC. THIS HAPPENS EVERY SINGLE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND EVERY CONVENTION. If anything, we are lucky at the moment, because states passed laws binding delegates.
In the past, THE LAST TIME THEY CONSIDERED BINDING DELEGATES AT ALL WAS AT THE 1976 CONTESTED FORD/REAGAN CONVENTION. I don’t generally cite Wikipedia, but that gives a decent account of the events at the convention. Other than that, Convention Delegates have always voted “their conscience”, or with the people–since the two usually went together.
So, Where Are We, Then?
- If your state hasn’t voted yet–then you need to help Team Trump get out the vote, by any means possible.
- You ALSO NEED TO READ THIS–SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.
- If your delegates are already chosen to the State convention, then you need to work on getting PRECINCT SEATS, NOW.
- If you can find out who your delegates are for your district, then meet with them, and bring other Trump voters with you, and find out where they stand.
CALM DOWN. The Delegates are not being “Stolen”.
And as long as Trump gets 1237 before the convention he will be fine. Even the GOPers are not insane enough to try and “change the Rules” there–THOUGH THEY CAN. BECAUSE THE RULES COMMITTEE CAN DO WHATEVER IT WANTS.
If This Is A Non-Story, Why IS The Media Hyping It So Much???
The media and the Cruz team, and the GOPers, ARE DELIBERATELY TRYING TO GET US TO BREAK THE RULES, THROUGH ANGER OR IGNORANCE. You need to read the links above, and pass this post and Part 2 and 3 to everyone you know. Because if we can’t GET THE WORD OUT AND GET PEOPLE INFORMED WE HAVE A REAL PROBLEM.
