GOP "Moderates" Target Conservatives
Establishment Republicans have latched on to a new scheme to crush the power of Conservative voters in GOP primaries.
It is called the "top two" primary where moderate to liberal independents and Democrats are allowed to select the November GOP nominee. All the candidates are thrown on to one ballot and the top two candidates, regardless of party, move on to the November election.
"Moderate" GOP California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, backed by his tax increasing traitor GOP allies in the legislature, pushed through this travesty with the eager help of Democrats. Not one single public hearing was held by the legislature before this "reform" was passed.
A side "benefit" of the top two is the effective ban of all independent candidates and small opposition parties from all future general election ballots. Both the Democrats and the GOP were happy to remove opposition from the left or right from the November ballot.
As a "bonus" your write-in vote was declared illegal and will not be counted by the corrupt two party elites.
The top two system is primarily designed to weaken Conservative voters. In the 2014 California primary it worked like a charm allowing Obama supporter Neel Kashkari to be the Republican nominee for Governor in November.
The GOP has also pushed this in Montana: GOP tries to rig Montana elections and in Ohio: Ohio GOP tries to rig the 2014 elections.
Now Coming to Oregon
As if by "magic" wealthy GOP donors are shoveling in campaign cash to abolish the Republican primary in the state of Oregon.
One of the major supporters of the top two in Oregon just happens to have contributed big bucks to GOP moderates John McCain and Mitt Romney.
Naturally adopting the top two in Oregon means all small opposition parties would effectively be banned from the November ballot massive reducing voter choices. The Oregon initiative appears to ban write-ins in the general election, although this is not certain, because the measure is vague.
The press in Oregon persists in referring to this as an “open primary”. However, “open primary” has been defined for over 100 years as a system in which each party has its own primary ballot and its own nominees, but there is no registration by party and any voter can choose any party’s primary ballot reports Ballot Access News.
A front group called "Every Oregon Voter Counts" reports receiving an additional $43,600 in recent days. Romney-McCain backer John von Schlegell, a managing director at Endeavour Capital, gave $25,000. Investor John Sherman and William Smith Properties Inc. each gave $5,000. Remodeling firm Neil Kelly gave $2,500.
Conservatives are in the crosshairs of "moderate" Republicans as well
as Obama regime Marxists using the IRS against us.
The group has raised $163,600 in recent days in an attempt to gather 87,213 valid signatures by July 3. Initiative sponsors received approval May 15 to gather signatures after resolving legal challenges over the ballot title reports Oregon Live.
In an open primaries system, all candidates regardless of party affiliation appear on the primary ballot. The top two vote-getters advance to the November general election.
Partisan primary races in Oregon are currently open only to registered party members.
The campaign has spent $118,276, the vast majority of it on signature-gatherers.
