    Republicans to scrap primaries and caucuses as Trump challengers cry foul

    Interesting article on the republicans scrapping primaries/caucuses in four states which would denied challengers the right to challenge President Trump in a primary/caucus. While it's legal to do (it's been done before in the past by both parties) given the current situation where people in his own party cast doubt of the president's ability to carry out his office, cast's doubt upon the real reasons these election processes are being denied.


    “Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states,” said former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who recently launched his primary campaign against the president. “It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”

    “Primary elections are important, competition within parties is good, and we intend to be on the ballot in every single state no matter what the RNC and Trump allies try to do,” Walsh added. “We also intend to loudly call out this undemocratic bull on a regular basis.”

    Why are you not surprised that the US is moving towards autocratic leadership when a president is able to enhance his position by deliberately creating dissention and fear within his own party?

    Failure to recognize the truth I imagine. Nonetheless one can hope that with a change in political party at the White House, things will once again change for the better.
