(Worthy News) - Colorado will not vote for a Republican candidate for president at its 2016 caucus after party leaders approved a little-noticed shift that may diminish the state's clout in the most open nomination contest in the modern era.

The GOP executive committee has voted to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll after the national party changed its rules to require a state's delegates to support the candidate who wins the caucus vote.

The move makes Colorado the only state so far to forfeit a role in the early nomination process, according to political experts, but other caucus states are still considering how to adapt to the new rule. [ ... Read More (Source) ]

  1. Growing up in the 50's/60's in California, I was taught that we had representative voting. If the candidates are not voted for then there's no representative government. This election has really shown me and everyone else how the country God put me in is evil. Good reminder.

  2. A republic, Madam, if you can keep it. We have not. We have bread and circuses for the low information voters, and now we have a Caesar and two aspirants, racing each other for a chance to throw aside our founding principles and serve their lust for power.
    We have the façade of our republic left. At least we're not voting from the rooftops yet.

  3. Worthy News -- you need to do your homework. You are just perpetuating the Trump kool-aid here. Colorado is a caucus state and this allows for participation and votes at the neighborhood level. And yes, it is NOT democracy--we live in a Constitutional Republic and there's a BIG difference.

  4. How nice the state decided for us, I don't recall a vote on this. We are sick and tired of American "Bought" politics, (isn't that what a deligate is and government deciding what is right for us when they have no Idea what it's like to BE us. But that's not new, southern Colorado is forgotten ALWAYS. No television coverage from our state, one self serving news paper, no weather radar, and no say in government. We been asked to pay higher taxes for Denver schools, elect people we've never seen or heard about. On average we pay more than 30% of our pay for crappy housing, sales taxes are high, food cost are high, wages are low. Health care will cost 1/4 of our income along with a $5000.00 deductible EACH per year, social security & medicare will be gone just in time for us to retire. Our retirement accounts and home values have been ripped off by greedy banks. So what happens to us? WE THE PEOPLE THAT OUR GOVERNMENT RIPPED OFF!
