The voting was rigged and should be tossed out. For some reason Independent voters were not allowed to vote. Some of these people had relatives die in the various wars they were sent to fight under the guise they were protecting American freedoms including the right to vote. Other living veterans also were denied that right to vote also because they were registered as independent. So Cruz who was born in Cuba and moved to Canada to become a citizen of that country is still being allowed to run for president is what is wrong. Saying his mother was born in the US so what she went to Cuba and met up with his father their and the rest is history. But Kansas should not be able to deny independent voters the right to vote.
