I’ll Never Say “Never Trump” by Waverly Woods

Houston, “we have an umpire problem,” all right. It’s from top to bottom and everywhere in between.

By Waverly Woods

Even though I am a Cruz supporter and candidate for delegate to the RNC Convention in Ohio, I would support Donald Trump if he should become our nominee. As someone who has been a Tea Party leader for 5 years, I know how grassroots activists feel and why so many are divided between the Cruz and Trump campaigns.

All are disgusted with how the Republican Party is run and the representation from elected officials with an R following their names. Both sides want our country restored. Both feel their voices have not been heard. They want to know where the accountability is.

The Republican Party just doesn’t get it.

We all believe the system is rigged and what “We The People” choose is being ignored. We continue to vote for those candidates we think represent our principles and values, but when the candidate gets in office and start drinking the Kool-Aid, they do the exact opposite of what they campaigned on.

Everyone should be aware of their representatives’ voting histories. Why send the same legislators back to do the same job? People have had enough! They are now ready to throw the proverbial baby out with the bath water.

Trump supporters see him as a disrupter; someone who doesn’t need the Party Elite and can’t be controlled. Trumpsters want him to burn it to the ground, taking down all the RINOs at once.  Cruz supporters see him standing up to people like McConnell and Reid (one and the same). Yet Cruz may salvage what’s left of our Constitution without all the destruction.

So how did we get here? How did we become so deceived?

It’s about the process. People don’t understand the process: how candidates are selected. In Virginia we only had conventions until 2000. That process hasn’t changed, but the addition of the primary confused everyone. This presidential race is a perfect example of how useless primaries are and how they are a total waste of the taxpayers’ dollars. The nomination will be decided not by primary votes, but at the Republican National Convention, just like it always has been.

What the “Party” really doesn’t want you to know… is how to work the same system in your favor.

Oh, they’ll post the Official Calls and the Party Plan, but you are left to figure it out from there. It’s more than just showing up. It’s anticipating how the rules and Party Plan are manipulated.   The “keep it small and control it all” group are banking on you staying home, being too lazy to get involved, and not wanting the confrontation.

Now, more than ever, is the time to engage in how your country is being run. It’s time to take our country back by starting with our Party. How can we “Stop the Washington Cartel” or “Make America Great Again” if we can’t even restore the integrity of our own Republican Party? Do we actually believe in the Creed?

We Believe,

That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government,

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense, That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.

This isn’t just an idea or a passing thought, it’s our creed. Do we want to hold the “R’s” accountable to it or not? When we see a Party Chairman conducting himself like some out-of-control narcissistic tyrant, should we sweep it under the rug?

I say, HELL NO! The ugly fact of the matter is that this behavior is so common that it’s perceived as business as usual.

Houston, “we have an ‘umpire’ problem,” all right. It’s from top to bottom and everywhere in between.

The shenanigans are rampant throughout Virginia. It is pathetic to watch elected officials combine forces against the very people they serve in an attempt to control everything. This is either “slating” you out of your vote, or abusing the power of their office to control election outcomes in their favor. Then they come back and ask for you to vote for them again. Huh?! That’s a lot of nerve and arrogance. Moreover, it’s a lot of disrespect to the people who should matter the most.

Don’t be a part of the problem by staying home. Be a part of the solution by engaging. That’ll really tick them off! Watch VPAP.org and the Federal Election Commission to see where the money comes from for each incumbent (and who really owns them). Engage in the convention process and watch how many politicians call you on the phone and want to meet with you. You won’t get that in a primary. This is the absolute best way to force the will of the people and hold our elected officials accountable to everyone they serve.

    I too won’t stay home, and I’ll continue to volunteer for the election if Trump is the nominee. Yes, I think Trump is just as liberal as Hillary Clinton. No, I don’t believe anything Trump says. That said, he might very well sign some positive legislation that Hillary wouldn’t sign, like the REINS Act. Trump, as the lesser of two evils is worth voting for and getting your friends and family out to vote as well. Don’t forget about the down ticket! Many people may not like the Republican Party, but it’s the only thing standing in between us and the Democrat Rule.

    What Donald Trump’s candidacy has demonstrated to the grassroots conservative Republican Voters is that their votes DON”T MATTER and the voters don’t select the presidential nominee in the Republican Party- the GOP Party’s Insider’s Delegates select the nominee.

    Once the “little” people in the peanut gallery, as FORMER Hanover County GOP Chairwoman Nancy Russell refers to YOU, figure this out and stop voting like village idiots for the very people who have pure disdain for you- the Party can be taken over by the conservative movement.

    The Party has always elected it’s nominees. This has never been a Democracy, no matter what Bernie, Donald, or Barack tell you.

      Amen Brother ! We are asked to work the polls, get out the vote-but oh by the way if your just a measly Republican voter and not an insider delegate don’t worry “we will take care of you” !
      They tried that crap with Dave Brat and until the peons got wind, and said no way, did we finally get a little satisfaction.

    • Trumpster Paul says:

      That’s just the problem, most Republicans have no clue that’s the way it is and has been. Unless you attend meetings and become an insider you really have no clue that you are a Republican in name only and trust that
      those insiders will, or possibly may do, what the majority desires.
      Even in Hanover Nancy Russell had an insider group that held alternate views in disdain and could care less about conservative grass roots opinions.
      Hopefully with Dave being our new chairman we can at least have some open discussion time where everyone’s opinion can be heard. We need to put the divisiveness I have seen behind us.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
