The Death of the Republican Party

Posted by Troy on 2nd March 2016 in Current Events, Political

The Republican party is talking about how they can keep Trump from becoming the nominee.  This is basically “by hook or by crook.”  They want to be sure that they can have a brokered convention.  When that happens, they will give the nominee to Rubio or Romney or someone more suitable.  If they do this, the Republican Party is DEAD.  It would appear that close to half of Republicans want Trump.  If they give it to someone else when he legitimately won the nomination, these voters will be pissed.  They will feel utterly disenfranchised, and they will go third party.  The Republican Party will never be a national party again.  Hopefully, it would be replaced with the Libertarian party, but it’s entirely possible that the result will actually be a more nationalist party.  While I don’t think that there is a problem with nationalism, nationalistic parties never really work well.  Although, I would actually like to see our government more concerned about America than “America’s place in this world” or “our position at the table of nations” or any other such dumb concepts.  As though the rest of the world is thinking, “I wonder what we could do to improve the plight of children in Detroit.”

If the Republicans want to defeat Trump, they need to convince everyone but Cruz to drop.  If Cruz drops, at least 25% of his supporters go to Trump and Trump wins.  Get it down to a two man race, and let the best man win.

Long Live the Constitution!
