FWIW – on Iowa

Posted by old-timer @ 17:09 on February 2, 2016  

My penny’s worth of thoughtlessness  on the Iowa caucus.

Last night, even mainstream media was reporting that Republican caucus were un prepared for the number of newbies.  Short of paperwork/forms.

Reminded me of my first encounter with the morlocks who run the R’s when I showed up for Ron Paul for the 2008 run.

They pulled out all kinds of stunts to dilute our numbers.

They called us “Paulistas”.

We were new and under informed about procedures, and so, easily overrun.

Although in 2012 we were much better prepared and organized, they abandoned their own rules to diminish our effectiveness.

I even reported those events here.

No need to tell the results.  We are living with them.

Now, some people seem to think Trump or Sanders will be the new Obama – change we can count on, believe in, make happen – pick one.

The parties, both R’s and D’s believe they still have all the buttons under their control.

I think we are all in for a very big surprise, and it will not be fun for anyone.

I think I’m going to write-in our local weatherman for president.
