MEMBER DIARY

I’m a Republican in Texas and I’d like to cast a meaningful vote in a presidential primary

It’s over?!?

This happened four years ago. It was over. John McCain was the candidate. I was told to rally around John McCain because I had no choice. And I did rally around John McCain.

Now, I’m told to rally around Mitt Romney, because…

…someone else chose him for me.

Texas is a large Republican state, and Texans don’t count?

Maybe I want to vote for Rick Perry. Maybe I want to vote for Ron Paul. They’re from Texas.

Maybe I want to vote for Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich.

Look, I used to be a Republican in New York City. I know what casting a meaningless vote is like.

In 2004, there was the slogan “Vote or die!” Maybe that should be changed to “Vote? Why?”

I feel like I’ve been disenfranchised.

No, I’m not going to vote for Obama in November. But can a Texan please be able to choose the Republican candidate?

I get to vote on May 29th.

It’s over?!?
