    Thank you. I'm sure Hillary will appreciate your help in winning the election for her.

    You're barking up the wrong damn tree... Ain't MY problem at all..
    In many cases the VOTERS decided to "open" the primaries. And at that point, the parties were FORCED to add shit like Superdelegates and hijacking protections..

    At any rate BullDoggy -- the REAL establishment Repubs are whining like babies. Trump was not a Republican choice. He was an "anti-Republican" insurgency.. So he doesn't represent (OBVIOUSLY) the power core and mainstream of the Repub party. THAT was the whole point of the exercise. Maybe the Bubba vote, maybe simply the "fed up" vote --- but not Republican values (whatever the fuck they are these days.)

    You're the one that gave a list of your republican chosen candidates that you claim were poor candidates and didn't represent the right wing.

    My real choice was Rand Paul or Carly Fiorina. I financed Carly actually... But by the time of Tenn primary there were really only 3 choices left. Would NEVER consider Kasich (being a Lib Party person) --- because Kasich went out of his way in Ohio to attempt to BLOCK a LP candidate from running against him -- the slimeball..

    So I voted for Cruz -- but gave most of 13 delegates to Carly and Paul..
    It's the delegates that matter anyway -- and the Cruz vote was simply the best anti-Trump gambit..

    Parties aren't forced to do anything. It's their call, and they can make any rules they want.

    They really don't, and that's a tend with Establishment Servants. I actually suspect it's more that Establishment Servants can buy the election, to an extent, than it is Republicans actually voting for them. Though, I have no proof of that. Could also be that people vote Establishment Servants because the Democrats pick them, and they think they'd out-cheat them, or at least have a better chance at it. Though, I've only seen Democrats with dead people votes.

    Kasich was one of my least favorite candidates, because he really was a dishonest person. He went back on his promises multiple times during the election process, and seemed to only stay in with hopes to undermine the actual candidates, despite having only, like, 15% of the national vote.

    Cruz was my main choice... too bad both the Democrat party and the Republican party are willing to unite to keep an actual Conservative out of office.

    So you're saying Democratic party members chose the republican candidate?
