RNC Changes Primary Rules to
Empower Voters, Strengthen Nominee

Breitbart Big Government, by Reince Priebus

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/25/2014 1:16:58 PM

After the 2012 president election, it was clear that the Republican Party needed to take steps to give our presidential nominees a better chance at winning the White House. One of those steps is a shorter primary process. It’s my goal to have a convention in late June or early July. That way the nominee has access to general election resources earlier, allowing him or her to be more competitive against the Democrats’ nominee. It also means the media can’t over-hype a drawn-out fight among our candidates. But we did have to make sure that our primary voters would have

What about closed versus open primaries? Who decides that and can the RNC do anything to fix it or at least mention it as a problem?

It´s to keep Cruz & Paul out. They didn´t learn a thing from Romney, McCain & Dole. Bush & 2010 elections were the last times the republican party won because they included the base. By By republican party run by Rove , Boehner, Cantor Ryan, & McConnell.

Open primaries allow Dems to select the weakest Republican candidate who they most want their guy to run against.

New Hampshire is probably the worst offender of abusing an open primary and Fl. allowing "independents" to vote is problematic also.

I guess people like Pribus thinks there´s only going to be a couple candidates when the field could be one of the largest ever.

They also have to face liberal debate moderators who´s main job is to ambush the candidates.

A warning to the RNC: Unless you support a kick arse candidate approved by conservatives, we don´t give a darn what Princess Preibus does.
Time to give it back to democrats, in spades. Roll over them and their parasite voters. We need a fighter who isn´t afraid.
Ted Cruz, Mike Lee or Rand Paul come to mind. Take America BACK.

Until conservatives unite early behind one candidate (as they did behind RR), the elites´ "moderate" candidate is going to win. McCain and Romney won because the conservative vote was fractured over half a dozen candidates.

The only right thing to do in order to reform primaries is to have them ALL on the same day and to make them all closed. I know ya´ll don´t like California, but it isn´t right that the East Coast always gets to decide who we can vote for. Nearly all the choices are gone by the time Californians get to vote. And, by the way, not all of California is lefty. There are still some of us natives left. and the inland areas are quite conservative still.

I´m not convinced there is a need for primaries at all. People can declare their candidacy, do whatever campaigning their funds will allow. Let anyone who qualifies by the party rules join in the debates. Have four or five debates over a three month period and then let´s just go to the conventions and fight it out.

That´s probably unworkable for a host of reasons, but it´s a thought.

Having a June or early July convention probably is fairly smart. Nominee is decided by then and once nominated, can use other funds than primary campaign funds.

Since the GOP can´t win a general election without Independent conservatives votes locking them out of the primaries results in anger and loss of their support in the generals.
When the gaff is made worse because the dems play the -- Not wanted? Come on over and vote in our primary where independents are always welcome.
Ask Idaho republicans how that helped them in the last election.
Also so many party members are currently disgusted with the party right now how can they condemn those voters who want no part of forced membership merely to vote.
Also since too many unsavory candidates now abuse the Tea Party after their nominations the loss of independents also is a loss of Tea credibility.

I would like to see the fact that the T.E.A. "party" is made up of all sorts of people who have common values and political ideas. It represents Americans of all flavors.
That is what Priebus must acknowledge if he wants to get a Republican in the White House.
We the people must make that choice, or all is lost.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
