It happened in Colorado, and now it’s happened again in Wyoming. Republican Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz picked up all 14 Wyoming delegates — without ever having a vote.
The Sign May Say “Courageous Conservatives” But They Are Nothing Of The Sort.
How much courage does it take to bend and twist the rules like never before so you can defeat your own party’s front-running candidate — without ever having a vote? Maybe it should read “Corrupt Conservatives.”
“Look at what happened in Wyoming,” Trump told supporters in Syracuse, New York. “Look at what’s happening in Colorado, where the people never got a chance to vote and they’re going nuts out there. They’re angry—the bosses took away their vote.”
On Friday Trump’s campaign said it fully expected the convention to give all the delegates to Cruz — without even asking the people of Wyoming.
“This process is favorable toward party-insider folks,” Alan Cobb, a senior Trump adviser, told the Associated Press. “When you don’t have a vote of the people, it just favors (Cruz)… The very insider, narrow pathways like Wyoming, they just don’t work very well for us.”
According to Infowars, Republican Wyoming Congresswoman Rep. Cynthia Lummis admitted the process in Wyoming is similar to the one in Colorado where establishment insiders pick the candidate.
“I don’t think it was unfair,” she said. “I think Cruz had the superior knowledge of how the process worked and executed a better ground game to take advantage of the way the process worked.”
It’s fair that the people of Wyoming had no say in who becomes their president because Ted Cruz had a better ground game? Really?
Ted Cruz’s freebee was orchestrated back in March by Republican party leaders. Ogden Driskill, a Republican state senator who served as an uncommitted delegate, justified the action saying, “Cruz is a hardcore conservative, you can’t call him anything else. Trump is an unknown quantity.”
“Just because it might have been the choice of the people is no reason to deny the people that choice.”
Driskill’s ‘logic’ is so flawed. Had the GOP been confident in this outcome, they never would have pulled this Trump-delegate-denying stunt in the first place.
While it is true that Cruz had his Wyoming ground game planned long ago, there is still something wrong with a system that denied the people of Wyoming the opportunity to select their candidate. And there is something really wrong with a system that allows an organization, like the Republican Party, to do so.
