2016 RNC changes: "no longer going to participate in a circus of debates"

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/01/24/gop-adopts-c...

The Republican National Committee gave near-unanimous approval Friday to a package of rules changes that would condense the 2016 presidential nominating calendar and help the party avoid the kind of protracted party infighting that dented GOP nominee Mitt Romney's general election appeal in 2012.

[...]

"This is an historic day for our party," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said after the vote.

"We have been saying for months that we were no longer going to sit around and allow ourselves to slice and dice for six months, participate in a circus of debates, that we were going to take hold once again of our responsibility at the Republican National Committee because we are the custodians of the nomination process and today I believe was historical and obviously very important to the future of our party and our country."

I did have hope that the circus of finger breaking and arrests would not be repeated. Looks like I needn't worry now.

Doesn't have squat

to do with Zionists. Israel and the USA are on the OUTS.. Israel is about freedom, the USA has sold out to a NWO and the GOP is killing itself to give us one party like Communist China or Islam.. because the UN is a communist and Islamic fascist block.

Believing it's zionists and Israel is the equvilant to : We don't want a county, we don't want freedom.. we want FEMA camps and UN (so we can be equals in the world).

It's really a shame so many Americans bought into the "Palestinian lie" I once did too.. none the less.. the GOP wants ASIANS they specifically targetted millions of funds for ASIAN and Hispanic candidates.. duel citizenships.. and if you're a Jew.. GET LOST.

Israel refuses to sign up to the UN Agenda. I wish people would wake up, but it's very hard to do when you need to feel a part of something that is popular (and it's by design) One day many here are going to wake up to the fact they've been had..

Check out The Patriot Nurse

Hey Granger. I subscribe to a youtube channel called "ThePatriotNurse".

https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePatriotNurse?feature=g-subs-u

Really cool channel! She usually tours around the country and holds seminars on medical prepping. Right now she's in Israel, out meeting folks, and putting up vids. Hope you like it :)

I LOVE it!!!

I have seen her before, and I love her.. She's MY kind of woman. She is a hero to me.. I student and what a GREAT teacher she is. I did not see her latest vids.. and I'm VERY GRATEFUL for you linking me up. I'm totally enjoying them right now.. those lights are right on.

She has guts.. I love that. She have brains.. BIG brains.. she is BEAUTIFUL.. inside and out! THANK YOU (((((Kelldor))))) I wish I was with her.. I can't think of a better traveling campaignion. REALLY! THANK YOU

+1 Exactly...

And well said.. Israel has it's own problems and is not perfect but if it is what is taking down all of America then we must be really weak and those are some 'tough Jews'. I mean come on. There is no doubt corruption and globalist NWO sell-outs in Israel like everywhere else, but to blame little Israel for all our problems is a lie. It's much bigger than that.

I am Jewish. It's not "the Jews".

BTW, is Reince Prebus Jewish? I sure hope not.

So first thing Monday morning I'm off

To Renton Wa. To change my party affiliation from Republican to independent.

Well, one things for sure, I'm not any more likely to vote for the new cold fish as I was the old.

I think we might indeed find like minded people out of the disgruntled Democrats, but enough to matter ?

Secondly, and I've harped ( not that HARP ) on it enough already, but the voting process is rife with cheating and outright theft. I've ZERO confidence in it.

Those things being said, we might be wiser to focus on a single solitary State and take it over on every level as much as we can politically, then secede: I hold out little hope for a good presidential run from a Libertarian within the present system.

Time to go after the

Time to go after the Democratic party take over!

There. I Said It: Goodbye Republican Party.

Hello, everyone.

Well: There it is. The RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION truly scared The Republican Party Establishment with the MASSIVE Grassroots Support for Ron Paul in 2012 and they had to cheat. And now...This.

RON PAUL, his supporters or ANYONE even close to him or us they will never have.

Those of you who hope Rand Paul will get the Republican Party Nomination? Unless he is ONE OF THEM, that will NEVER HAPPEN.

A few days ago someone here must have read my mind.

The article was: "Maybe It's Time To Start Courting The Democratic Party" (...or similar wording).

I say: YES. That should have ALWAYS been a part of "reaching out". Why only attempt to "enlighten" Neo-Cons and forget The Democrats? There are wonderful, kind democrats.

Is The Democratic Party any better? (((Laughs!!!))). I am not speaking of leadership: I am speaking of PEOPLE.

US vs. Them is a Manipulator's Dream: Divide and Conquer.

Recently I wrote an article suggesting RON PAUL 2016 - Independent Party.

In my view it is time to look at BOTH of those two options.

GET IT NOW? FINALLY? Hmmmmmm?

Hope so.

Wisdom Strategies

Of course they passed the rule changes

the parties are a criminal operation.

The best thing the american people can do is NOT vote in Federal elections - refuse to participate in the charade of legitimacy. I am cynical by nature and I was shocked at the corruption after participating as a delegate in two POTUS election cycles. The system is putrid and all participation with it will taint you.

Spend your time and energy with the people you love. All the energy put into this group will nurture, build, and blossom in the near future. We should focus on preparing our family and community for this “Fourth Turning”. This is a time of great change and momentum is picking up. Voting will provide the least of amount of influence in this transitional period.

Remember that strength flows in this direction; spiritual / psychological / physical.

A dead lost party

Trying to become more dictatorial if its possible. Hell yah we don't want debate we only want to tell you who the candidate that you will support. Don't worry the polls rigged the media rigged the vote count rigged. So really what is the point of debates at this point. we just waiting to end the GOP for good. The DNC long gone sold out. Both worthless Rothschild thieve parties.

The fire doesn't burn a hand,

the dumbass putting the wood in does.

You mean that

the people don't need to hear important information about candidates on their character?
Tattling on one another defeats the purpose they say!

It almost sounds like they are intentionally destroying the party!

Maybe the current party will serve them better in completely destroying the Country in 2016.

Rule Change

Though i did read in the article that more states would be awarded delegates based on proportion of state vote, correct?

To me, that is a good thing. The 'winner-take-all' results in the nominee selected way too early. The best case would be enough delegate split so that the nominee would be decided at the convention by widdling the candidates down and letting their delegates choose 2nd 3rd and 4th best choices.

..."because we are the custodians of the nomination process"

On that note Priebus took out his politburo rubber stamp, read off his teleprompter that "the ayes have it" and passed the declaration. The nays were sent to a political gulag.

Republican National Circus

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

Well of course not.

Because who ever the ZK (Zentral Komitet) of the national party picks to be the candidate should be the candidate.

God forbid the people or their delegates on the floor of the convention pick the candidate!

That's how Ronald Reagan became the candidate.

Oh please!

Mitt Romney never had any appeal to anybody. While I agree it was a circus, and made Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, FOX and the RNC look like a bunch of clowns, Romney never would have had any appeal no matter what.

TwelveOhOne's picture

Circus, and prancing

I remember the second presidential debate, where Romney was dancing around Obama, it looked almost like they were sparring in a boxing match. It was really ridiculous. Also when Romney said "you never said Benghazi was an act of terrorism" and Obama said "read the transcript" -- it was so prepared and faked.

Earlier at one of the Republican debates, each candidate had to come up with a "catch-word", a single word to describe themselves. I liked what Ron chose, "consistent" (don't recall the others), but I think it was not really informative, it was more like entertainment.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

what does this mean? no more

what does this mean? no more debates? isnt that illegal?

the party owns

the process so it is not a matter of legal / illegal. It is their rules and they can do what they want hence the corrupted american political process.

Not only did you make me officially despise the party, you've saved me from wasting my time ever voting again.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! GO GOP!!!!

LOSERS

I'll help make change by educating people.

I think there maybe 4 million who agree

Today Rush Limbaugh was lamenting the fact that 4 million fewer Republicans voted in 2012, than voted in 2008. Prior to the 2012 election, he was saying, "who are they going to vote for", like there was no choice. The choice they made was to stay home, I don't think that option occurred to him, nor the Republican party.
