I know more about how the GOP works. Know what, though? I am a committeeman, and it’s all still pretty vague to me. Here’s an e-mail I just sent to the head of the Chester County GOP to get a handle on how best to send real uncommitted delegates to the national GOP convention. It distills down my understanding of the system as it stands right now. As I learn more, so will you! Funny how the process of how we elect the president of a free nation needs distilling.
Skip:I seem to recall we nominated you as a delegate last week. Who did we nominate along with you?The reason for my question is I am really unhappy with the way the presidential primary system in our country works. I tried talking to my state legislators about moving ours up so our votes could be meaningful, but that was like beating my head against a wall. [see post tags for list of who I tried to persuade on the matter]Besides, I eventually came to the conclusion that simply moving ours forward is not so much a solution, as it makes a dysfunctional system worse. It occurred to me, though, one way to at least draw attention to the issue would be to have Pennsylvania’s delegation to thenot only arrive uncommitted in theory, but in actual practice as well.This is an idea already floated by former, and I feel it is something on which we should follow up, even if there’s no real chance any more of our national convention being “brokered”.What are your thoughts on this?
