But there is a bigger question here that is being asked...

...that is not dependent upon the August deadline: The RNC is using the "private" argument to shut out video recording of the process (i.e. Mississippi and Missouri, for example).

So it is right and very prescient to raise the question as to just how "private" is the political process, after all!

I mean...the government forces citizens to jump through hoops in terms of elections (limiting what we can give to $2,500, etc)...then if the government is involved in all of that...why SHOULD the affairs of these political parties...be considered "private"??

No. They are public at least in the sense that they are vehicles to elect people to public office.

No election or delegate process or otherwise...should be "private" where the First Amendment is shut out.

That is where the shennanigans start.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
