The Cruz camp can’t win enough votes at the ballot box so they’re stealing them at the state level.
Such good Christian conservatives.
Cruz supporters are asking bloggers to stalk the delegates in Colorado.
Dear Influential Conservative Blogger,
I found a list of names and phone numbers for Colorado delegates, of which a huge number are unbound. I did reverse phone searches and came up with a list of mailing addresses for a lot of these unbound delegates. I wrote letters to them saying that Cruz has been most consistent about re-negotiating the Iran deal, and that they should vote for him.
Perhaps you and your followers can do the same. Attached is a list of unbound delegates for Colorado, and their mailing addresses. I also noted their phone numbers in case you think that’s better. (Personally I don’t. Some of them might be on do not call lists.)
Regards, Alex S.
And— Cruz supporters in St. Louis sent out this letter describing how they plan on stealing delegates in Missouri on Saturday.
Dear Cruz supporter and true friend of freedom,
Saturday is caucus day in Missouri to select the first round of delegates to ultimately go to Cleveland.
As you probably know, the first vote in 5 of the Congressional districts are pledged to Trump and in the other 3 to Cruz.
HOWEVER, on the second ballot should those delegates at the Congressional District Caucuses on April 30 and the State Convention on May 20-21 in Branson be Cruz supporters, and we do this across the nation, Ted Cruz can win the nomination on the second ballot.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Attend the local Caucus in your local county/township. Go to the State Republican Party web site (https://www.missouri.gop/election-2016/#find) to find location, arrive an hour early, and seek to identify the Cruz supporters. Even better, take all your Cruz friends and family with you and be a delegate to the Congressional Caucus and the State Convention.Whoever has the most numbers and elects their slate will prevail.
THIS SATURDAY 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. is the next critical time to help Ted. Hope to see you at a victorious state convention in May,
Reader Carrie had this to say about Cruz and the GOP establishment’s delegate theft.
I believe that the delegates are there to represent the voters and not themselves. This is a point that has not been discussed enough.
Thousands of people vote for a candidate, and the delegates are their proxy to the convention. The delegates therefore should represent their voters through any number of rounds of voting, UNTIL THEIR CANDIDATE IS ELIMINATED. Then they can be freed to vote for someone else.
This is the moral argument against what Cruz is doing. Some people may have put in rules to try to cancel the moral obligation, but since when do written rules ever replace morals and duty? This argument was thrashed out at Nuremberg when people said they were just following orders (ie the rules). However, the judgement said that that was not good enough.
Particularly with the large segment of the Republican party being Christians, this moral obligation has to be higher than any man made rules.
Another point is that of Ted Cruz and his cohorts, placing weak people in moral danger. These people are being encouraged to go against fair play, and honesty, to portray themselves, and to offer themselves, as Trump supporters, living a lie. What effects is this having on their souls?
I do think that much can be made of this angle to put pressure on these delegates. The argument they are running now is that Cruz is smarter than Trump. It needs to be countered on the high ground of Christian morality, of loving your neighbour, not being smart a*ses to your neighbour and cheating them.
