The quest to defeat Donald Trump won't end at the ballot box — not if the Establishment has their way. Now that its looking increasingly unlikely that another candidate will win more votes than Trump, the party bosses have turned their eyes to what really matter, the delegates.
On Monday Infowars reported on remarks made by Curly Haugland of the Republican National Committee. He said delegates may “vote according to their personal choice in all matters to come before the Republican National Convention, including the vote to nominate the Republican Candidate for President” and disregard voters.
On Wednesday Haugland expanded on his remarks.
He told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” voters are irrelevant when it comes to selecting a candidate for the presidential nomination.
“The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here,” the North Dakota Republican said.
Not only are they trying to throw out the will of the voters, but they're ignoring the established list of candidates, as well.
First RNC Chair Reince Preibus said the primaries aren’t about elections but about candidates trying to “join us.”
Now other RNC officials and delegates are saying voters’ wishes don’t matter and questioning why we even bother with primaries and caucuses.
They suggest the nominating convention is wide open to former candidates and non-candidates like Speaker Ryan on the same day former speaker Boehner says he wants Ryan coronated as President.
The GOP may think that it's somehow saving itself from disaster by not nominating Trump, but the ultimate disaster of any political party is to forgo the democracy it was created to protect. By ignoring the voters, the Republican Party may find itself as the purpose of its undoing, not Trump.
Trump to make America great!!!
This is exactly what they are hoping for, if that happens Hillary the thief and murderer is a shoo in. Sad state of affairs, but if Trump doesn’t clinch they will nominate Kasich.
Not if the election is rigged, and if you are OK with that then you should be ashamed of yourself. This country was founded by the people voting in who they wanted.
Of course nobody likes to give up THIER gray train when it comes to retaining power perks
The more they want too stop him the more I want too see him win
How have the primaries been rigged?
All snakes in the grass,lower than whale p**p
You bet we will.
