The Republican convention in Cleveland, Ohio, is coming sooner than you might think, and the so-called establishment is already planning the overthrow of Donald J. Trump, its leading candidate.
Whether you are a supporter of the Donald, or not, the discussions currently being held will potentially disenfranchise millions of voters who proclaimed their backing of Mr. Trump at the polls, often waiting in line for hours to do so.
Moreover, the Republicans are making plans to cast ALL the candidates as losers since none of them were able to garner a majority of delegates. Watch as they roll out a public relations campaign to justify their actions — Ted Cruz will yell just as loud as Trump when he is denied the imprimatur of nominee as well.
Both candidates will use their delegates as a foil to say and do things they cannot do themselves. And expect the TV networks to interview the loudest and most obnoxious ones.
Of course, the Democrats will benefit greatly as all the machinations are exposed on national TV, and every Congressional race in the country will be newly up for grabs as local candidates try to tie their opponents to the turmoil.
It should make for great TV as well, but it will not serve the long-term interests of the nation.
