I don't know if choke off is

I don't know if choke off is the right way to look at but I can agree with the sentiment.

If we can win with Rand then the hope would be that the party would be in our control and choking it off would be the last thing we would want.

I wonder what the party would look like today if Goldwater had won the presidency?

Principles before Party.
