[LFC Comments: Tom Z. gives the Republican Party a black eye with this scathing rebuke…telling it like it is…way to go Tom!]
BULLETIN: ORP MOVES REPUBLICAN PRIMARY TO JANUARY 10th
Your Vote will NOT be Counted!
Finally, you will have the endorsement of “Non-Incumbents in Contested Races”. These are the races where the House and the Senate have decided who they want to win in races where YOU the voter actually could have a choice between more than one candidate. But, they can’t allow you to have that choice. You may voter for someone who will vote for your priorities instead of for the priorities of the monied special interests! Like when YOU voted for Trump instead of Kasich or Bush – no we can’t EVER let that happen again. So, the ORP will just pick the winners in those races tomorrow to make sure they win and that your vote doesn’t count.
See, with this new setup, where the Ohio Republican Party voted to accept endorsement recommendations from the Ohio House and Senate Leadership, they have in effect created their own special interest groups to buy elections – and candidates who are not endorsed have almost zero chance of winning. The way this works is that once they endorse these people on January 10, 2020, the ORP will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars producing and distributing “slate cards” listing these people as the “official” choice of the Republican
Party – leaving all other candidates names and pictures off the materials.
Then the House Caucus and Senate Caucus will spend MILLIONS of dollars on ads, flyers, phone calls, social media, etc. promoting these endorsed candidates and attacking their opponents. Money that comes from the special interests who want their legislation passed and who expect to have elected the legislators who will pass their legislation. As a non-endorsed candidate, you now have to raise enough money to not just fight your opponent, but to overcome the money spent against you by the ORP AND by the House or Senate Caucus. The non-endorsed candidates are at a tremendous disadvantage which is why at least 95% of the people the ORP endorses tomorrow will win in the fake primary that will be held on March 17, 2020.
Now let me say, and I should have said it in previous emails, that there are some people on the ORP State Central Committee who are not corrupt and who do not think they should endorse. Remember the vote to accept the House and Senate Endorsement recommendation only passed 40-10. So at least 10 people out of 66 believe that it is wrong to endorse and will probably vote against endorsing again tomorrow. I believe there may even be an effort to kill the endorsement in the “Non-Incumbent Contested” races so that YOU the voter will have some reason to vote in the official primary on March 17, 2020. Then again, the ORP State Central Committee will probably vote to endorse themselves again so that they can use “
Party” resources to defeat their opponents as well. It is ALL RIGGED!
This is why we no longer have a “Representative Republic” because no one is Representing YOU and the political parties do not believe in the democratic process. They literally do not believe in a fair vote. Jane Timken and the members of the Ohio Republican
Party who created and support his corrupt process are no different than Adam Schiff and Nadler and Pelosi. They don’t give a damn about our state, our nation, or our citizens, it is all about money, power and control over us and our tax dollars. [emphasis added by LFC]
