"We are proud to fight for the rights of Virginia voters to be able to make a meaningful decision and cast their ballots for the candidate of their choice. This appellate ruling only affirms the trial court's assertion that the state's process of printing ballots should not be disrupted. An orderly ballot access process is important, but of little significance if viable candidates are unconstitutionally kept off the ballot. The trial judge's holding that the statute is unconstitutional is not disturbed. Gov. Perry is weighing options for appeal."
Failure often marks the making of a great man or a great wimp
If we are going to throw out any pretense of democracy in this process, then here is what the Republicans really ought to do to be effective.
Limit the primaries to the following ten swing states: FL, OH, PA, MI, WI, IA, MN, CO, NM, AZ
Weigh the votes of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania voters 3:1 against the others.
All primaries are open, and no caucuses.
At the end of the primaries, have a run-off of the top 2 finalists.
If you think about it, states like Texas and California don't matter one bit. Texas will go red, and California will go blue in the general. So let the voters in the swing states pick the candidates that are most attractive to them.
That would maximize the odds of victory.
Well, now it's all OBE for Perry.
I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
