Now do you actually have a quote where Trump has "threatened" the GOP?
It's exactly a "threat". Trump wants special treatment. NO OTHER candidate made any such "demand" to be treated "fairly" (which translates into "don't say anything negative about me". Attacks by other folks running against you is a fact of life in politics and ALL candidates have to put up with it. Trump is simply using his personal fortune (and the threat to use it to conduct an independent campaign) to extort a promise to be "left alone". The fact is, Trump will consider any failure to secure the nomination "unfair". I have zero doubt that he WILL fail to get the nomination and then he WILL run as an independent. I't's going to be fun. Pass the popcorn.

Bernie could make a big mark on history by trying to change that.

A Rubio, Trump, Clinton, Sanders election would be moving in a positive direction.
Good point. Why can't each party have two candidates?

I'd prefer that they not be a part of the parties.
