Just when you thought it was safe to be a conservative Republican again, along comes Ronna Romney McDaniel and the rest of the GOP elitist.
One would have thought that the slaughter these elitists suffered back in the presidential primaries of 2016, these political snobs would have learned their lesson. Apparently, the drubbing that President Donald J. Trump handed these Newport Beach and Northeast Seaboard blue-bloods wasn’t enough, now they’re back for more. Before I explain these arrogant aristocrats latest shenanigans, allow me to expound on the gravity of what these socialite snobs are pulling.
Traditionally, the Republican Party will sit out primary races. The reason for this is fairly simple. The candidates are left to “prove their salt, stamina, and popularity with the voter.” The candidate who can woo the voting public, raise their own funds will usually win the primary races. This will be the person that all the Republican voters in that district, city, state etc. have chosen to represent them in the general election. At this point in time, the party will enter the fray with big fundraising dollars for the candidate that the “people” have chosen to mount a serious challenge against the Democrat.
‘Not so fast’ Pennsylvania! The ivory tower Republican aristocracy from Washington have decided to jump into the Keystone States primary process. According to this article from U.S. News details “who” the elitist have decided to put their millions behind. What this effectively means is this. A candidate such as Bobby Lawrence or state Rep. Jim Christiana who is running for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate will now likely have a much tougher time. Lawrence is a rock solid conservative who supports the Presidents agenda and is even endorsed by the Godzilla of grassroots organization’s “Citizens For Trump.”
When you have 3, 4, 5, and even 6 candidates involved in a primary, the damned GOP needs to sit on the sidelines and let the process play out. The voters of the State need to be deciding who should be running against the Democrats, not the Republican Party. By the party putting their thumb on the scale and infusing large sums of money into the process, they are giving that RINO an unfair advantage. In other words, the party is putting “THE FIX” in before the voting even begins. The party choice can run virtually unlimited radio and television ads against the competitors, plus the party will bring a Super-PAC into the mix who will run negative advertising against the challengers to the parties choice.
If you feel as I do that this is granting unfair advantages to those who kiss the butt of the Republican Party, then I respectfully request that you call the boys and girls in the Ivory Tower. Let them know how you feel about the party “fixing” primaries and putting their thumbs on the scale. Call; 202-863-8500 and tell them your thoughts about this dishonesty.
