Much of the angst at Free Republic derives from the common belief here that our vote and opinions still have any direct influence on who becomes President. Once we accept that stomping our feet and yelling "I hate that liberal bastard Romney!" makes about as much difference to the process as spitting into a hurricane, we can re-focus our efforts on electing state and local representatives (and even some Congressional representatives) who reflect conservative views. The GOP nominating process is not really open to voter input at this time in history.
And bearing in mind who really runs the country, getting fiscal conservatives promoted to senior positions in money center banks would likely do far more good than getting them elected to office.
No “Double-Standard”, I never advocated for anyone to drop out until they were ready to do so, which is usually when the money has dried up and the people have at least to have begun to speak. While I have clearly demonstrated that I support and believe that Newt IS the Conservative and the BEST choice and is the most electable, I have not denigrated the other candidates as have SOME of us have and have made clear on numerous occasions on this site my intentions of voting FOR the Republican Nominee, who I believe will be Newt. Of course most of don’t know who you’re for, just who you’re against.
Newt’s not winning Missouri. He’s not on the ballot, therefore nobody is going to caucus for him.
Missouri is an open primary state, meaning any voter is allowed to take part in the Feb. 7 election.
The state’s actual preference for a GOP nominee will be decided at county-level meetings on March 17, which are open to any registered voter who says they are a Republican. One caucus will be held in each of Missouri’s 114 counties and the city of St. Louis.
People will Caucus for Newt Gingrich in Missouri.
By not making the effort to be on the Feb ballot, Newt screwed himself. The odds of him getting caucus votes is nil.
