Attacking Democracy, Republicans in four states (Including Arizona) may cancel the 2020 Republican Presidential Primary.

Well, Republicans are aware of some history.

In 1968, President Lyndon Johnsons hopes to run for a second full term as President were handicapped by the Primary Challenges of Eugene McCarthy and Robert Kennedy.

In 1976, President Gerald Ford had to push back a challenge from Ronald Regan at the Republican Convention to win a chance to seek election to a full term. He would lose a close race.

In 1980, President Jimmy Carters chances for reelection were wounded by primary challenges from Ted Kennedy and Jerry Brown.

In 1992, President George H.W. Bushes chances for reelection were hobbled by a primary challenge by Patrick Buchanan.

It is 2020.

The 2016 Popular Vote Loser, KKK endorsed candidate, Liar in Chief, and Chief Executive Deadbeat has two (and possibly one other) Primary Challengers.

These potential challengers are former Republican Governor Bill Weld, former Tea Party (now claiming to have realized the error of his ways) Illinois Representative Joe Walsh, and former South Carolina Governor and Representative Mark Sanford.

Well, Republican Party leaders in four states (Nevada, Arizona, South Carolina, and Kansas), fearing history will repeat itself, are considering steps to not allow Republican Presidential Primaries in their states.

Their apparent goal is to not have a damaged Fuh…President Trump come before the 2020 Republican Presidential Convention with delegates committed to other candidates.

Worse, they do not want their dict…party leader to be faced with the remote possibility of a strong challenge that could force a brokered convention that could divide the party before the general election contest.

This is yet another example of the Republican Party spitting on the Democratic Process.

These are actions we would see in Putin’s Russia or other Authoritarian regimes.

Sadly, the most Democratic nations conservative parties have been resorting to such undemocratic methods.

Look at Boris Johnson in Britain attempting to suspend Parliament.

Look at Moscow-Massacre-Enemy of the People-Obstructionist in Chief-Political Prince of Darkness Mitch McConnell as the Republican Leader of the United States Senate.

Look at the current occupant of the White House, who, with eerie Orwellian Precision (and a black sharpie) could get his handpicked people at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to go with his version of the Hurricane Dorian Alerts with regards to Alabama.

This attempt to rubber-stamp the 2016 Popular Vote Losers nomination by doing away with the Republican Primaries is an attack on our Democratic System.

It should be stopped.

Let the Republicans vote and decide on the person they want to run as their Presidential Nominee.

If the KKK endorsed candidate does enjoy the support in the party he says he does, then there is no cause for his people to worry.

Right!

  1. You are one sick puppy, Mr. Gordon. Have you buried your Head the last 2 1/2 years or are you just a Democrat who wants to win in 2020? You don’t sound like any kind of Republican to me!

    I know President Trump does things a little differently but the status quo wasn’t working. I Don’t know how you can make up all the crap you put in your story (and what a story it is!) but Trump has been the best thing that happened for those of us who sat waiting for Obama’s term to be up. He promised to “fundementally change America” but America was just fine in 2008! Fortunately for us, he didn’t change the country (laws and the Constitution) but he and his cohorts 6did make some citizens like you more left leaning and more socialist. I don’t call Democrats names like you do. I am not like the snowflakes either who are afraid of someone else’s opinion. However, right now there is no other candidate that can help America other than Donald Trump! People used to talk to each other regardless of political opinions but articles like what you have written have divided the good people of America. Much of the news media has appended itself to the left and have no clue how to report facts rather than opinion. Instead, they claim fact but state only opinion! It is destroying the country from the inside and you just don’t get it! I feel sorry you can’t see the truth!

  2. The AZGOP is scared. Trump is scared. For all the tough talk, you’ll never meet a bigger snowflake than an fake conservative from Arizona, or the fake billionaire in the White House.

    Cowards, afraid of voters voting.

    UnAmerican cowards.
