thoughts from Texas primaries
Yesterday, I did the unthinkable and went to vote in Democratic primary. I voted for…gasp…Hilary Clinton. You can say or think whatever. I, like about 34% of the Republicans (according to KLBJ Radio), switched over and voted in Democratic Primary, as people like Rush Limbaugh and Sargent Sam Cox talked about.
The reaction to GOP switching over and voting Dems was kind of amusing to see. So many Democrats, especially the sore losers (Obama supporters), are all talking about how GOP switching over is immoral and unjust. They say that GOP is trying to pervert the process. There are full pledged attacks on what Republicans did, since Hilary winning Ohio and Texas is prolonging the primary process for Democrats. Although Hilary did not make up that much ground (maybe around 25 or so delegates), she is probably re-energized and will prolong the battle.
Yesterday’s results mean that it is unlikely that Democrats will be able to choose their nominee before their National Convention, because neither of them will likely pick up enough pledged delegates before Denver. Hilary needs to win 97% or so of remaining delegates to get the nomination. Barack, about 77% or so. Neither are likely scenarios. They’ll have to rely on Super Delegates (not chosen by the people, but by party elites). They might have to re-vote in Florida and Michigan. Talk about a chaos…
I am amused at this whole process. And I’m even more amused at their attempts to indict Republicans who crossed over to vote for Hilary as immoral. First of all, there is nothing wrong with what Republicans did. There is nothing illegal. There is no provision against it. Texas has an open primary, which means anyone can vote in either GOP or Democratic Primary. Yes, it’s legal, but immoral, Democrats say. Well, that’s what Democrats have been doing in GOP Primaries before. Democrats and the Drive-by Medias all but picked our candidate for us in John McCain. McCain was all but out of race, until Democrats decide to switch over and vote for him, because he was our weakest candidate. Here is a party, who says they want work across the isle, be bi-partisan, let every vote count, and blah blah blah…whatever sounds good to make them look like they are real heroes of American politics…yet they whine about GOPs voting in their primary. This is how Democrats think. If it is to get any of their own agendas across, it is all good and democratic and should be admired. If that same thing work against them, it is immoral, perverted, and should be ashamed.
All you liberals out there, please explain to me how Democrats crossing over and voting for John McCain in Republican Primary is a part of democratic process and exercise, yet Republicans crossing over and voting for Hilary in Democratic Primary is immoral and perverted.
This is precisely why I cannot support any liberals in this country. All the sore Barack supporters need to shut up (and you libs out there, please explain any of the specifics of Barack’s position on anything – he just doesn’t seem to mention them whatsoever, except that Economic Policy that he got real specific on…which by the way is nothing but socialistic ideals).
Oh, by the way, Iran and North Korea are eager to have Barack Obama as our next President. That should make all of us feel real good about our own security should Barack Hussein Obama gets elected.
