It was a matter of time. You knew it was going to happen but as the days blended into weeks and then months you were starting to wonder whether Donald Trump was ever going to implode. Well, keep waiting.
Despite what the self-serving media tells you Trump did not lose the Wisconsin primary. Senator Ted Cruz won. And, in reality, Senator Cruz did not suddenly morph into Ronald Reagan and bask in the glory of love.
Trump got 36% of the vote like he has garnered in almost every primary or caucus. The difference is there were not 10 to 15 other candidates in the race to spread the remaining 65%. This has been a math lesson from the start.
There is no denying the 35% of the Republican base Trump owns are die hard Trumpites. He can do no wrong with that group. The return of the Middle American Rebels strikes again. Just ask Ross Perot of George Wallace.
At this point, it is pretty much a given that neither candidate will reach the required majority of 1,237 delegates to get a first ballot nomination. So the question becomes where do we go from here?
Over on the Democrat side it seems regardless what Senator Bernie Sanders does he will not be the nominee as that cartel – also known as the Democratic National Committee – has rigged it so former Senator Hillary Clinton will win.
It’s looking more likely its partner in crime – the Republican National Committee – is plotting a similar ruse to play on the millions of voters duped into thinking their vote counts. If the Republican National Convention becomes a floor fight and the a nominee is not named Trump or Cruz, then President Obama will get his wish and the nation will completely transform into something different than our Constitution envisions.
The Committee Elites have started saying things like “we choose the nominee, not the voters.” That sentiment was shared by Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota a few weeks ago. Can you imagine what would happen if the Republican National Committee simply puts forth the nominee they want rather than the nominee the people want?
I am almost at a point where I hope that happens which will lead to the destruction of the Republican Party and the elites would deserve every voter departure. Of course, that would saddle the country with a president almost as bad the current resident in the White House.
Picking a presidential nominee out of spite may not be the best way. So here is to hoping Trump or Cruz gets to 1,237. Then we can spite the elites but give the people who they want.
