Political Parties–Not the Primary Voters–Choose Their Nominees

17 Mar

The following video might push your blood pressure up a few points.

Curly Haugland is member of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and was recently interviewed by CNBC.  According to Mr. Haugland, the “Republican Party”—not the voters in the Republican primaries—will choose who will be the Republican nominee for President.  If Trump wins 90% of the delegates in the primaries, he can still be denied the Republican nomination for President by the “Republican Party”.

When asked, “Then, why have the primaries?”  The Mr. Haugland grinned and answered, “That’s a good question.”

The implication of Mr. Haugland’s interview is that the primary elections are nothing but a dog-and-pony show and have no real authority or power to determine who’ll be nominated for President.  More, what’s the purpose and legality of all the financial contributions given to candidates during the primary elections, if the primaries are, themselves, meaningless?  Are the primaries less about votes than about advertising?

Finally, if the “Republican Party” will select the “Republican” nominee for President, but voters in the Republican primaries have no real say in selecting that nominee, then it’s apparent that the “Republican Party” is something other than the voters in the Republican primaries.  Thus, the “Republican Party” does not appear to include 99% of those who vote in the Republican primaries and mistakenly think of themselves as “Republicans”.

If the votes in the primaries don’t really count, the voters who think of themselves as members of the “Republican Party” are deluded.  They are nothing but “house niggers” in the Republican “mansion”.  They may live in the same mansion as the “Republican Party,” but they’re not really part of that “family”.

All of which leads me to wonder, who, pray tell, are the real members of the real “Republican Party”?

I can’t answer that question for sure, but I recall someone telling me about 20 years ago that the real “Republican Party” includes only those people who’ve been elected under the Republican Party banner and who are still serving in office.  I don’t know that that description is accurate.  But, if (as Mr. Haugland has implied) the voters in the Republican primaries are not really members of the “Republican Party,” that description sounds plausible.

If the real “Republican Party” consists only of those “Republicans” who are currently in office, there aren’t more than five or ten thousand “real” Republican Party members (from city dogcatcher on up to President) in the entire country.

If those  “real Republican Party” incumbents are up for reelection this year, and if they disenfranchise the Republican primary voters’ choice for presidential nominee, I’d advise those Republican incumbents to start updating their resumes, because they won’t be reelected this November and will be looking for a new job.

I’d recommend to everyone who voted in the Republican primary that if your vote is ignored and you’re disenfranchised by the “real Republicans” in the “Republican Party,” then you shouldn’t vote for any “Republican” in the A.D. 2016 election or in the balance of your life.  I don’t care if the “Republican” running for office is your parent, spouse, or child, don’t vote for ’em if the real “Republican Party” disenfranchises those who voted in this year’s “Republican” primaries.

Here’s the explosive CNBC video (a little over 4 minutes long) of the interview of Curly Haugland:

    All I can say is that if this is the case – what a waste of money. That’s like using it for toilet paper.

    It is all a dog and pony show. Even (and especially) the final election that everyone presumes lands a candidate into office.

    There are people who vote. These people cast their lottery in a political cesspool. The act of voting is all that is required of them. They view winning as when their vote goes to the one who wins the lottery and they view losing when their candidate fails to win.

    There are people who don’t vote. These are the people the oath of office is directed to. There is no bond so no way to hold the office incumbent to his oath.

    So how do offices get filled? The same way houses get sold. There is a vacancy and someone moves in. In the case of houses foreplay consists of negotiating a price, engaging in contractual-appearing behavior, recording some paper but possession is what establishes the final ritual of ownership. In the cases of offices an old incumbent moves out, someone passing by sees a vacant office and a job that needs done and decides he deserves to put on that hat. This makes him a de facto office holder. Now to the voter that voted for him or the voter that voted against him or even the voter who didn’t vote but is just registered this guy is a de jure office holder because they have the perception that the lottery is what put him there. And to the voter and the non-voter registered guy … there is no mechanism to enforce specific performance.

    This is not a recent phenomena. In ancient times Caesar was the nominee for the office of Emperor.

    I have a Question… What about the “write in” vote? If the “real Republicans” blow off the voters choice, & place in their own nominee instead… can the voters blow off the party’s nominee & use the “write-in” to vote for the Candidate that they did want? & beat the party’s nominee? Basically, I’m asking, if a particular Candidate receives more write-in votes than either of the Democrat or Republican party’s nominee’s, could that candidate become President? pending the fight between the popular vote & the electoral college? (EC)… If so, then what would happen if say Candidate X received 60% of the popular vote, but only few of the (EC)?

      I’ll be interested in Adask’s response. I think the answer is yes you can. One of your candidates for President is Andy Basiago and he’s going for a write in campaign. andy2016,com

    Disbanding this hydra-parasite has dire consequences many have tried and have perished…
    “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws” — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
    If the central banker cabal is clearly in charge i.e. The Federal Reserve System, it would seem futile to vote until the cabal is disbanded.
    Louis McFadden–” It was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all”.

      The ultimate game plan remains the same: consolation and transfer of wealth by fiat fraud. All else is distraction, the ultimate one being big-time WAR!

    If for no other reason, the ultimate “gamer/reality showman”, Trump, is causing more of the Super-class [D]elite’s hydra tentacles to become fully uncloaked/exposed. Is this another “test access” iteration to see the level/type of reaction? Soooo exciting to be living yet to see the “Quickening/End Times” events unfold!

    Many of the Prophets of old longed to be alive in the days that are unfolding, they prophesized the events unfolding now. Jeremiah 50 and 51 is one such chapter which speaks of the unfolding events in the language of the day. Isaiah 13 is very similar and second witnesses Jeremiah and Revelation. wholy1, I second your excitement with my eyes wide open, not partaking in the imagry of Babylon to the best of my ability.
    Until America turns from her wicked ways, her people will not be allowed to return from captivity to dwell upon the soil in peace.

    I’m understanding a whole new meaning to the “prince of the power of the air”…..to whom most are enslaved, as they have volunteered into his jurisdiction, have left the soil, and have transformed themselves into ANIMALS. May God help us to repent and retain our true inheritance.
