Republican Primaries Nixed in Several States!

Post by screen glare » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:15 pm

If you are afraid one of Trump’s republican challengers will beat him for his party’s nomination and he thus won’t be reelected - JUST CANCEL YOUR STATE’S REPUBLICAN PRIMARY ELECTION!!!!

Justify it to dumb voters as SAVING MONEY!

Democracy? WHAT democracy?

More up front than Hillary and the DNC secretly sabotaging Bernie Sanders in their 2016 primary I suppose.

It's not uncommon for the incumbent's party to cancel primaries. The Democrats have done so in the past. If you don't like it, become involved with the party of your choice.

Democracy? What democracy?

Along with more Russian election fixing, voter suppression, and
voter intimidation, let’s just skip over voters casting ballots in a primary!

He might have trouble finding the "I'm an obnoxious cunt, everyone listen to me" party.

The Russia hoax is dead. Hillary lost because she was a terrible candidate, and Trump, like him or not, spoke to the middle class.

If you are so worried about election meddling by people that live 4,700 miles away, I'm sure you must be all in favor of requiring voters that live here to provide a valid ID.

Bryce, funny thing is, when I have voted, no matter where I lived I had to do that. So it is SOP, at least in my experience.

Must I educate you on what a democracy is and what a republic is?

If only you had a brain, LL. AND used it to think.
Plenty of evidence on this board to the contrary. All found in your posts.

What does 4,700 miles have to do with cyberspace, Bryce?

And is there any other photo ID you can think of besides a drivers license or state ID card that should be considered valid to vote?

False premise. That’s why your conclusion is also false. The United States is a republic, not a democracy.

https://www.thoughtco.com/republic-vs-democracy-4169936

When Ben Franklin was asked what form of government the founding fathers created following the Constitutional Convention, he answered “A republic, if you can keep it.” He did not say, “Derp, a democracy, because that’s what screen glare will believe hundreds of years from now, derp!”

Normally, I would continue to point out your ignorance, but I’m going to take a different approach today. I’m going to praise you for continuing to try despite your many challenges. Morbid obesity, homelessness, unemployment, poor hygiene...these things often keep people from putting themselves out there in public, but they haven’t stopped you!

SG - let's be realistic here. Have you seen polling from the New Hampshire republican primaries?

Per the Boston Herald:
-88 Trump
-3 Weld
-1 Walsh
Spread - Trump +85

I challenge you to find me a state where anybody other than Trump has something even close to a snowball's chance in hell of beating Trump in a primary. Trump's approval nationwide among republicans is steady in the mid to high 80s.

"afraid one of Trump’s republican challengers" ???

Please.... :lol

It IS to save money, as much as your conspiratorial mind would like to believe otherwise.

It’s like arguing with a drunk.

Drunk (screen glare): “Derp, Terry Bradshaw was the best linebacker in history!”

Sober bystander: “Terry Bradshaw was a quarterback.”

Drunk (screen glare): “That’s what I said!”
