Posted on 04/12/2016 7:30:24 PM PDT by Amntn
On Saturday Ted Cruz supporters took all 13 of the delegates up for grabs at the Colorado GOP Convention to complete a clean sweep of the state.
But it was not without controversy. There never was a vote Party elites decided on who got the delegates.
The anti-Trump politicians were passing around a Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Trump for weeks before the convention.
Snip... Robert Zubrin from Colorado Republicans for Liberty wrote about the anti-Trump resolution at American Thinker back on March 22, 2016:
In the caucuses March 1, I was elected an alternate delegate to the Colorado State GOP convention, which on April 9 will select and instruct our delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer.
Accordingly, I have drawn up a resolution that is now being circulated that will forbid Colorado delegates to the national convention from voting for Donald Trump for president or vice president on any ballot. Such a resolution is necessary, because Trump has publicly stated that his methods of operation include buying or renting the services of politicians for cash.
As the text of the resolution provides a succinct and forceful summary of the reasons why Donald Trump is unacceptable as a Republican candidate for president, I thought I would share it with the readers of American Thinker. Here it is:
Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Donald Trump
Whereas Donald Trump is not a Republican; and
Whereas Donald Trump is a demagogue who is using fear, hate, and lies to assemble a mob in support of an agenda of socialist policy, unlimited government, and strongman rule; and
Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the Western alliance which is the basis of American security; and
Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the system of international trade which is the basis of American prosperity; and
Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the freedom of the press that is the basis of American liberty; and
Whereas Donald Trump would destroy the rule of law which is the basis of American civil society; and
Whereas Donald Trump has mocked those who risked their lives to fight for America when he avoided doing so; and
Whereas Donald Trump has acted as an apologist for Americas enemy Vladimir Putin and other brutal anti-American foreign tyrants; and
Whereas Donald Trump has set himself forth as an open exponent of lust, greed, and other vices antithetical to Judeo-Christian ethics and the moral fiber necessary to sustain a republic; and
Whereas Donald Trump has demonstrated that he has no respect for the truth, and
Whereas Donald Trump has defrauded thousands of ordinary Americans of their life savings; and
Whereas Donald Trump has, in the course of the present campaign, committed acts potential prosecutable as incitement to riot, a federal crime punishable by up to five years in prison; and
Whereas Donald Trump has knowingly acted to degrade the Republican presidential nominating process to a vile level that can only serve to drive people of talent and integrity out of the party and assist in the election of the partys opponents; and
Whereas the nomination of Donald Trump for president would insure a landslide defeat for the Republican Party nationwide in the fall, and deeply damage the Republican Party and the conservative movement for years, and possibly decades to come; and
Whereas a vote for Donald Trump by any member of the Colorado delegation to the Republican National Convention would dishonor and disgrace the Colorado Republican Party;
Therefore, be it resolved that:
The Colorado Republican Party forbids any of its delegates to the Republican National Convention to vote for Donald Trump for president or vice president on the first ballot or any other ballot, and The Colorado Republican Party asks its delegates to national convention to pledge on their honor to do everything in their power to help secure the presidential nomination for someone other than Donald Trump. Donald Trump has threatened the Republican Party with mob violence. Lets tell him where to go!

The anti-Trump officials handed out this same resolution at the state convention on Saturday.
Lying globalist shills Levin , Limbaugh , and Beck said this is the rules , nothing more , nothing less ...gotta play by the rules ...
yep, saw that a couple days ago. maybe they were hacked again haha
FUCRUZ and all your nancy-boys who lift their legs for you.
These idiots just threw Colorado into the DIM column in the general election unless Trump is the nominee ...
Told you. Damn GOPe slimes are no better than Democrats.
But according to Limbaugh this was in the finest tradition of American Republican Government. I heard him on Monday say this procedure was passed in August to keep Trump and others like Cruz out.
Then today I heard him say it was NOT done to keep Trump or Cruz out, but to ensure an establishment candidate. There is a distinction there?
But for a small donation you can become a alternate super dooper scooper !
Nice propaganda hit piece on Trump to twist the arms of the Colorado delegates. Did Goober Lyn-see Graham write those gestapo tactic smear rules? ‘whereas’ more like ‘whores’.
So what? A group called Colorado Republicans for Liberty is not allowed to have an opinion? Free speech is somehow wrong? Trump and his supporters would do better to stop wasting their time looking for conspiracies and put their effort into a true GOTV effort in every state. You win some, you lose some. The candidate who has 1237 or more in the end wins.
Bump for later
Someone should send this to Hannity.
The the leadership of the GOP is in someways worse than the Democrats. At least within the Democrat Party they adhere to their crazy leftist political platform but with the Republicans they do the opposite of what they say they ar going to do.
In all fairness to Rush Limbaugh yes he said that, but keep in mind the poor man is dizzy from constantly talking out of both sides of his mouth.
I’m sure he can explain himself by wasting an hour discussing how he is friends with every single rich and powerful person involved in this, they are his golf buddies, constant dinner companions and so forth.
