I recently received disturbing information from business friends in California and Colorado regarding the Republican Party in their respective states. This information creates concern about the divisiveness occurring within the Republican Party during the current Election primary process, and potentially impacts the future of the party itself. Considering that California is a heavily union controlled state and Colorado politics are controlled generally through Denver, a heavily unionized city, it does not appear to be a coincidence that unions in these states may be infiltrating the Republican Party.
Bob and Elise Richmond describe the state of the Republican Party in Is this Any Way to Build the Republican Party?, The Unionization of the Republican Party and CA GOP Chair Could Serve Third Term. It is apparent from these articles that the Gasping Dinosaurs are reaching out to desperate Republican politicians through use of political funding to achieve total control over politics in California in order to not only maintain, but increase union membership. This is occurring, despite the call for greater union transparency, as seen in Demand for Union Transparency and Choice on the Rise! In California, it is apparent the big labor bosses -- along with President Obama -- are intent on controlling America at all costs (see The Great Pretender Wants Control).
In Colorado, the tactics utilized by the Colorado Republican Party to prevent Donald Trump form receiving any Colorado delegates are eerily reminiscent of the SEIU's Persuasion of Power! The article, Colorado GOP Resolution Against Trump, describes this in full. It is apparent that the Republican Party was intent on denying Colorado voters the opportunity to choose their delegate! It would not be surprising to find that the SEIU, who has a large presence in Denver, and other unions were involved in this Colorado Republican Party decision, as it is a swing state the Democrat’s desperately need to control in the general election this fall.
Obviously the Republican Party was intent on controlling the delegates to assure their candidate received all the delegates, which was solidified by the following tweet:
In each of these cases, it doesn’t take much imagination to realize that the big labor bosses do not want a Donald Trump candidacy, nor any candidate like him, as they want to control the political landscape as well as state and federal laws in an attempt to reverse their declining membership. It would not be surprising to learn that Governor Walker backed out of the primary race due to union tactics and money in his heavily unionized state. It is obvious from the vast sums the public employee unions are spending on their progressive political positions that big labor -- and particularly the SEIU -- are padding politicians' pockets to achieve their goals (see Public employee union spends $28 million on progressive politics and $15 Minimum Wage: the Best Government Unions can Buy). The SEIU alone spent $225,000,000 in the 2012 Elections, with approximately 99% going to the Democratic Party. Aside from President Obama being re-elected, the Democrats went on to lose both houses! Reason enough for the SEIU and other unions to begin pouring more money into Republican coffers.
The State of Indiana Republican Party has gotten it correct in a RTW State, publicly affirming that all three candidates will have an equal opportunity to receive the delegate vote:
“Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell issued the following statement describing the Indiana GOP’s delegate process:
“Let me assure all Hoosiers that your voice will be heard in our primary election on May 3rd. We look forward to welcoming all three of our presidential candidates to Indiana to provide them the opportunity to present their vision for the future of America to our citizens. We encourage everyone to engage in the process and get out and vote. We strongly believe in the election process and every vote counts.”
Indiana has a total of 57 delegates; 27 District Delegates (3 per each congressional district), 27 At-Large Delegates and 3 Automatic Delegates (2 for our Republican National Committee (RNC) Members and 1 for our State Chairman).
All of our delegates are bound on the first ballot by the results of our Primary Election. Here is an example of the allocation of delegates using some of the past candidates:
If Congressional District (CD) 6 goes for Gov. Scott Walker, then the three delegates from that district have to vote for Gov. Scott Walker on the first ballot. If CD 1 goes for Gov. Jeb Bush, then those three delegates must vote for Gov. Jeb Bush on the first ballot (and so on).
All 27 at-large delegates represent the state popular vote. If Indiana votes for Sen. Marco Rubio, then those 27 at-large delegates must vote for Sen. Rubio on the first ballot.
The 3 automatic delegates vote with the popular vote of the state.”
Americans need to realize Labor Unions’ True Motivation comes from the Dues Money, and that ultimately the 2016 Election is all about survival for the Big Labor Bosses and Democratic Party. Unfortunately, it appears the Republican Party in many areas is caving to the Death by a Thousand Cuts campaigns run by the Big Labor bosses (see The Devil at Our Doorstep, which chronicles a typical union corporate campaign). It is time for Americans from both sides of the aisle to wake up and band together, absent political persuasion, to assure that our political process remains the voice of all Americans and not politicians indebted to Big Labor Bosses. We need political parties and politicians who Defend the Constitution of the United States of America and the future of this great country instead of bowing to pressure of the big labor bosses, in order to line their own pockets!
