RNC Delegates May Be Lost To RINO Leadership!

A Resolution has been circulating within NC GOP County Conventions with a number already passed. The resolution is to “Change the Date of the Presidential Primary to March 1, 2016 or later”.  Quoting the resolution: “the North Carolina General Assembly has separated the scheduled date of the Presidential Primary Election from other scheduled Republican Primaries for questionable purposes, which incidentally may cost North Carolina taxpayers millions of dollars to finance two Primary Elections in One Year….”.

The North Carolina Presidential Primary could be a decisive one and if it goes off as planned on Tuesday, February 16th our delegation to the Republican National Convention will drop from 72 delegates to 12 delegates. That’s a BIG deal! This is because RNC rules only allow four states a February primary.  Currently, they are Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. The rule states “Any state that violates this rule by conducting a February primary will forfeit all but 12 delegates. There are no exceptions, and North Carolina remains out of compliance with this rule.”

So true conservative members of the NC Republican Party are lobbying the NCGA “to re-establish that all Primary Elections in a calendar year be confined to one date after March 1st, 2016.” The current NCGOP Chair, Claude Pope, has pushed for this, as well as, many hard working County Chairpersons, District Chairpersons and Executive Committee members. This is a crucial move, a must. The grassroots movement that worked to put these legislators in their current seats have worked too hard to see our hard work diminished in this way. Right now the bus isn’t moving, there has been no bill introduced to correct this obvious problem. Why is that?

It boils down to delegate control. Word has it that Senate leadership is halting any such
legislation from moving forward or even being introduced. Why? Because the votes of 72
delegates are harder to manage and control than 12 (hand picked) delegates. With
12 delegates there will be no brokered convention, no danger of a Tea Party candidate, or
Liberty-minded candidate screwing things up for the “Establishment” candidate. Reminds
me of the Talking Heads lyrics….”same as it ever was, same as it ever was…..”
So how can you help?  It won’t cost you a dime, only your time! Everyone reading this
blog needs to pick up the phone and demand this legislation be introduced.  Have you had
enough?  Do you want to see another Progessive POTUS take the lead?  Oh yeah, even
Republicans can be Progressives. I know a few.  Follow the money and you’ll find the
incentives.
