Flipping The Syrian Script

Voterless. Chew on that word for one moment. VOTERLESS.
- What does voterless mean? It means VOTERS HAVING NO VOTE. No voters.
The Colorado GOP deprived millions of the right to vote and made them politically voiceless by diktat, by a decree imposed upon them by a ruling elite.
- That is something that happens in a dictatorship, not a democracy.
I'm hearing that many are calling this a "blunder" but suspect that it was a beta test, a dry run for something bigger.
- Voting is obviously too important to be left to the voters, so the ruling elite will just have to vote for them.....for their own good, of course, because they're obviously too stoopid to know what is best for them or to appreciate the choices presented to them (like Romney or Jeb or Marco) so they'll have to be told what is good for them by their betters.
Calling the Cruz "Colorado putsch" a "voterless victory" glosses-over the ugly fact that this may be a "pyrrhic victory" where the actual costs far outweigh the hoped-for benefits.
- If voters and their votes don't count, why vote? Vote for what? JFK had some elegant words about what happens when peaceful change is made impossible, but the less elegant interpretation is "tree+rope meet politician."
