The GOP Dumpster Fire

GOPIn 2012, when the GOP establishment silenced grassroots voices at the RNC national convention and essentially entrenched itself as Lord and Master over those snotty, uppity TEA Partiers and Ron Paul supporters, I told the Republican Party to go to hell.

Not that I was much of a Republican anyway. I identified much more as a libertarian-minded independent, but I also knew my views in many ways matched Republican ones more than Democrats, if you had to look only at major parties.

I did not vote for John McCain in 2008. I did not vote for Mitt Romney in 2012. I did not vote for George W. Bush in either 2000 or 2004, even though most of my libertarian-leaning friends fell for his “smaller government,” “more liberty” promises. I did not abhor those men (except for maybe McCain, because he’s just SUCH a dick!), but I never felt confident giving any of them my vote. I have always considered my vote as a sacred duty to give my confidence to the people who I thought were best suited to run this country. My goal was never to win, but to ensure that my vote accurately reflected my views about who was best suited for the most important job in the land.

And yes, it is a job. And the election season is one big job interview, as far as I’m concerned. We, the American People, employ the President and every Congressperson and Senator whom we send to Washington. We pay them to represent us. We pay them to lead us. We certainly do not elect them, their cronies, or their moneyed supporters to impose on us what they think is best, because we’re apparently too stupid to know it ourselves. Many seem to have forgotten this, and base their votes on who can win or who is less terrible.

(At this point, I will inform the readers that I’m not engaging in debates with you about “throwing away” my vote, or “supporting Hillary” if I cast a vote for the third party. This debate has been rehashed in numerous discussions in numerous posts, both here and on social media. I’m not going to repeat it. So if you come here angling for a debate, screaming how I’m giving away the election to Hillary Clinton, or trying to convince me to vote for the Hairy Hemorrhoid™, save your energy. That’s not what this post is about anyway. I’m just providing some background and context.)

Mitt Romney lost in 2012. I cannot definitively say whether it was because of the “47 percent” or the “binders full of women” remarks that were so successfully exploited by the Obama campaign, or whether it was scores of Republican voters who, tired of holding their noses, were even more put off by the shenanigans of the 2012 convention. I know that couldn’t have helped.

I also know that the GOP has learned exactly dick since the last convention.

ullrichThe RNC establishment, working with the Trump campaign, quashed the “Free the Delegates” movement with a voice vote, ignoring calls for a roll call vote. A group of “Never Trump” supporters sought to unbind delegates and felt they secured enough signatures to force a roll-call vote on the party rules, which essentially centralized decision making in the RNC. Those delegates were also joined by those looking to decentralize said power after the 2012 debacle and encourage states to restrict primaries to registered Republicans, since the Republican nominee should logically be decided by… well… Republicans. Party members should decide who their candidate will be, not Democrats, many of whom I have personally seen admit they cast votes in open primaries for Trump to ensure the weakest candidate to challenge their Democratic nominee. That tactic isn’t new, and it works. An effort to ensure that only Republicans are able to choose their nominees was disingenuously dismissed with a voice vote, which many who were present say leaned in favor of the “Free the Delegates” movement.

Make no mistake, people. The grassroots were once again silenced by the establishment. The petty, pathetic tyrants Trump promised to challenge, banded together with his campaign to ensure victory and to silence real conservative opposition – to silence the very grassroots who supported the presumptive nominee in hopes of having their voices finally heard.

Gary Emineth, the former North Dakota GOP chairman who joined the Trump-RNC joint finance committee earlier month, says he was disgusted by the floor vote and immediately texted his resignation to Priebus.

Emineth says he’s furious the campaign and RNC worked in tandem to keep delegates from voting their conscience.

“I was on the Trump finance committee and I just resigned because that bully tactic is absurd,” Emineth said. “I just texted them right now. Why can’t the people be heard? I’ve been texting Reince for 10 minutes. He said we didn’t have the votes. We had 10, 11 states. They peeled people back. They were calling delegations asking people to step off the committee. You don’t do this in America. You do this in other countries.”

After being denied the vote, most of the delegation from Colorado walked off the floor in protest, leaving behind rows of empty seats, and reportedly former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli tossed his credentials to the stage in disgust and walked off.

The Trump supporters will crow that this is proof positive that their grassroots conservative voices are finally being heard by the establishment. In fact, the opposite is true. I fully agree with this editorial.

The rules changes conservatives sought today were not anti-Trump. In actuality they were pro-Trump’s message of not encouraging a “rigged” system and Trump supporters should be livid. The rules adopted today increase the power of the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, lessen the voice of grassroots republicans, and further allow the establishment to rig the system.

The effort to return power to the grassroots did not start today, or even this year. Conservative members of the Rules committee have long tried to change rules that limit the involvement of the grassroots in the party. With a large portion of anti-establishment delegates in the hall, conservatives finally saw their chance to affect real change.  They were thwarted by the establishment who convinced Trump delegates that this was an effort to steal the election from Trump.

Over time the rules of the Republican Party have consolidated more power in the RNC Chairman and his hand-picked committee heads. This is especially true with Rule 12, which Mitt Romney allies pushed through in the 2012 convention. Rule 12 allows RNC rules to be modified by the members of the RNC rather than the quadrennial convention. This takes away significant power from the grassroots, acts as an excuse for rushing rules committee meetings, and shifts power for rule making away from the grassroots to the RNC itself, albeit with a high ¾ member bar.

The writer is correct. This isn’t new. The 2012 RNC fiasco took place long before this year’s primary season, and the fact that a Trump supporter and finance committee member recognized this stunt for what it is – an effort to further consolidate power within the RNC and silence the grassroots ought to tell you something. Maybe you should listen, because the GOP establishment certainly will not.

    “Party members should decide who their candidate will be”
    Agreed. When I lived in Ohio I spent a couple of years working the elections. Ohio voters have to declare party affiliation at the time of registration. (or they did in the 90’s) There was a procedure to follow if a person came into to vote in the Primaries and requested a ballot for the other party – a challenge if you will, one that required a poll worker from each party to participate. I was very surprised when I moved to Virginia and found that I did not have to declare a party affiliation and could vote in either party’s ballot in the primaries without challenge.

          Yes, it’s supposed to be decided at the state level, but the RNC has a duty to encourage that, which they have shirked. They SHOULD encourage this. That’s part of what the opposition wanted. The other part was to unbind the delegates and let them vote their conscience. Because so many Democrats voted in the open primaries, that this actually could have been a completely different election. If he’s SOOOOOO fucking popular, then he shouldn’t worry about it, right?

    You apparently think the GOP was supposed to support having two or three candidates on the ballot. But the GOP isn’t interested in a Hillary presidency, nor in splitting the party further than its schizophrenic self is already split.

    I heard the voice vote. It definitely sounded close enough that a roll call would’ve been reasonable. But what would that roll call have done? Create more chaos, disharmony, splintering.

    Trump beat everyone. A field of 17. Nobody in that room — or in your fantasy — has a better chance to beat Hillary than Trump does. So why, please help me understand, would changing the rules have been a means of preventing a Hillary victory?

    1. Do us all a favor and take Trump’s tiny little dick out of your mouth for a mere second.

      As I said earlier (read the fucking italicized text) – this is not about Trump per se. This is about the grassroots’ voices being consistently silenced by the establishment. It happened in 2012 and it happened again this year. The only relevancy to Trump is 1) this is what he vowed to fight and 2) as usual Trumpanzees think it’s about them.

      Fact is that Republicans should choose the Republican candidate, and if you actually bother doing some research, that didn’t happen in many states, as I pointed out in this post. Don’t fucking sit there and tell me to suck it up when Democrats were a pretty big deciding factor in who the fucking Republican candidate is! It’s wrong, and the conservatives were trying to fix it.

      Maybe IF Republicans only were the ones picking their candidate, we would have actually had a candidate who had a good chance against Hillary Clinton. But thanks to the RNC bullshit, and the inability to decide our fate vis-a-vis closed primaries, we have the ONE candidate out of the field of 17 who is the weakest against her!

      But whatever. You keep flogging that narrative about what a winner Trump is and calling me a tacit Hillary supporter.

      I will vote my conscience, because we do have a third choice.

          The two are in a different league of insult. One is actually reasonably based on facts mixed with opinion. The other is a vulgar sexual innuendo with zero basis in reality of the variety one usually reserves for a sworn enemy.

          By voting for the losertarian — meaning he cannot and will not win, no matter how many lephrechaun-infused unicorns might be in your imaginary stable in the fantasy in your head — you are tacitly supporting Hillary Benghazi Vince Foster Email-traitor Clinton. And by strongly urging others to do the same, you are in a very direct way actively supporting her victory, too.

          That’s a fact on its face by definition of the words I’ve used and my own opinions concur with the cold, hard facts you tried to cover with embarrassing insults. Notice how I offered that without suggesting you put your loser (cannot win) candidate’s junk in your mouth?

          Tacit: understood without being openly expressed.

          Working against the only one who can beat Clinton naturally helps his opponent. That’s a simple fact. Though you may not be placing a Hillary sign in your yard, you’re de facto placing them all over the internet, sowing more seeds of “Hillary for President” discontent by so doing. Definition of “tacit” applies. Sorry you don’t like it. But your not liking a thing doesn’t undo it, dear.

      Everyone needs to vote their conscience, but everyone needs to do it with their eyes open. If after doing the research you still believe he’s better than Hillary, I cannot possibly fault you for voting for him. Personally I think the two are equally bad. No, I don’t think his SCOTUS pick will be better than Hillary’s. It may be worse, because he’s such a crony capitalist. He may be a little less warhawky, but then again, he just made the GOP change its platform to change its stance on Russia – the one major existential threat to the United States every national security professional agrees with! Yes, terrorism is a problem, but is it an existential threat? No. Anyone who disagrees needs to research the actual meaning of the phrase. And at least Hillary won’t start a trade war. He will likely be better on immigration (who the hell knows, as many times as he’s changed his mind on shit), but he’s worse on nearly everything else, except maybe gun control, and we’re not even sure about that, given his past statements! So no, they’re equally bad, and I refuse to give away the country to that statist fuck. No way! So when I get accused of being a tacit Hillary supporter merely because I’m actually objective enough to do my research, and not be so completely blinded by hate for Clinton so as to vote for someone so fucking shitty, that I couldn’t live with myself, well… needless to say, I get a bit pissed off.
