NOW I understand why Donny's running under the GOP banner, fear-mongering is their stock in trade and has been since the Tail Gunner Joe days. Run scared people run scared!

The will of THE PEOPLE will prevail no matter who's opinion from either side of the aisle.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned the Republican Party Rule 40(b) which mandates that the nominee must get a majority of the voters in at least 8 states.


It seems to me only two candidates left - Trump and Cruz - has any chance of attaining that requirement. I cannot see Rubio getting over 50% of the GOP vote in 8 states.


The Republican establishment might turn the rule into a mechanism to create a brokered convention. If the "elites" in the GOP are dead set against Trump getting the nomination they will come up party rules and regulations to deny him the nomination.


This is just an opinion, but I'm sure the GOP establishment is aware they will infuriate all those grass roots loyal Republican voters who supported Donald by denying him the prize he deserves ... they will knowingly throw the election to the Democrats. Why would they do this? Because, I believe, they will make an example of Donald as a future warning to any outsider that dares to challenge their exclusive little "club." I know this is a crazy idea - please disagree with me and articulate why you think my opinion is wrong - but I think they are looking at the BIG PICTURE, not just one election.


It's their party, their organization, and their rules.

Cruz and Trump (the Republican front-runners) are both untrustworthy and deceitful. What makes you think Trump is any better than Cruz? Trump is just the other side of the right wing nut-job coin.

It's just who is the candidate that wins that determines how far to push the minute hands of the proverbial doomsday clock is the question. Is a demogauge oligarch better than the other oligarchs' puppet? These are the questions we need to ask before we goto the polls in the rest of the primaries, let alone the convention this summer and the general election in November.

He believes in American sovereignty and wants to preserve it. He's not a globalist like the puppet masters to our politicians. This is why there is so much backlash against Trump.

Trump is Dirty as Hell.

Trump is a tool of Hell, IMO. A GENUINE FALSE PROPHET.

NO Christian, who is REAL, CONDUCTS THEMSELVES AS MEAN-Spirited and corruptly as Trump does.

Trump is an Actor...a Stage type DRAMA QUEEN.

So many deceived, ignorant voters fall for his bogus dramatics. My friends, as I, tell me they can't tolerate even Seeing Trump, when he is on TV.

VERY DUBIOUS, SUSPECT MAN.


Yes!

That's very original. Did you and Dexter75 go to school together.

Trump never claimed being a Fine, Religious man. Deceitful Fraud Liar from Hell, Ted Cruz did, tho.

If Trump "isn't a globalist" but has used Chinese labor for his Macy's clothing lines; undocumented workers for his real estate properties; and contractors who used illegal labor, then what is he? I realize that narrative works with some but I see the forest from the trees when it comes to The Donald, a man who I use to somewhat respect. Now I see him for the "do what I say, not as I do" bag of primordial pond-scum he really is.
