I had the privilege of working personally with Jerry Doyle while serving as the Technical Director of LPAC. He texted me a photo of himself posing in front of the Federal Reserve and asked me to put it up on the projectors during his speech, heh. He was a fun guy to hang around at the bar afterwards too.
Sorry to hear of his passing.
Unlikely that any Bernie supporters will vote for two former Republican Governors.
Unfortunately it doesn't work like that. He has to choose one side or the other, not both. Sadly most voters are still stuck in the left-right paradigm and as such one must pander to that if they want their vote.
He didn't know what was going on until it was too late. The RNC exposed themselves in 2012 and a LOT of non-liberty conservatives took notice. Ron gained a TON of sympathy from getting screwed by the RNC from people who wouldn't normally have sympathy for Ron.
The rules changes conservatives sought today were not anti-Trump. In actuality they were pro-Trump’s message of not encouraging a “rigged” system and Trump supporters should be livid. The rules adopted today increase the power of the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, lessen the voice of grassroots republicans, and further allow the establishment to rig the system.
You fail to grasp who some of these delegates are. And yes, they have enough influence, and given how they were publicly screwed today, they now have sympathy in their direction. Yes, this hurt the GOP big time.
You can't piss on people and then ask for their support.
In case you were unaware, the RNC disenfranchised about half of their delegates by cheating and refusing to take a simple recorded vote on the rules. Several state delegations just got up and walked out. They did the same thing to us in 2012.
The GOP leadership just handed the election to Hillary by splitting the Party.
Brakey is great, but really, what difference does it make?
The GOP is disfunctional, the liberty movement is diffused to the point of impotence, and a party's platform means nothing.
The focus should be getting more people like him, and Stickland, and Shem, and Justin, and Thomas, etc elected to state and local seats.
