Anti-Trump forces move to defy RNC, free delegates to vote their ‘conscience’

CLEVELAND — It is nearing time for the dump-Trump forces to put up or shut up, as they prepare for a final showdown this week on trying to free delegates to the Republican Convention to vote against presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Party leaders, and a growing number of rank-and-file delegates, say the renegades’ effort is going nowhere: Mr. Trump has solidified his support, struck the right balance with the party’s platform and is in little danger of being ousted.

“Now is the time to stand united as Republicans,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus told delegates Wednesday as he kicked off the Republican National Committee’s final meeting ahead of the convention. “Now is the time to stop Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump.”

    TRUMP for PRESIDENT of the United States of America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you don’t vote for Trump and he does not become President, my prediction is that, that will be the demise of the Republican Party. That is just what the Democrats want! A Socialist America! And if you don’t think that Obama and Hillary are Socialists then you have a problem!

    If they arrest George Soros the big donor to the riots and to the left, they could stop the violence.
    Why don’t they do something about it before it is too late. A civil war is on the way and will get worse if they don’t stop these criminals NOW.

    I am not a Trump supporter however that is who the majority of voting republicans have chosen so all of those trying to stop Trump need to get a life, he is the one that was victorious in the primaries so it is time to come together as a party and support him. If you don’t like him that is fine you don’t have to but your choice is Trump or the Hildabeast and if you are willing to allow the Hildabeast to win it is probably time for you to leave the republican party and join the communist party that she follows. Do what I am going to do, hold my nose and vote for Trump.

      At least you’re voting, a lot have said stupid BS like I’m staying at home or not voting, and those are the ones that squeal like a pig about everything! And by not voting have no business complaining about anything at all, not voting is a vote for Hellary! Like U, Trump wasn’t my first pick, but WE CAN NOT have Hellary even though this is the pick of the system!

        Actually not voting I think is over played. Dumbocrats can say the same thing a not voting for the hildabeast is a vote for Trump. You can only hope that more people show up and vote for Trump and are honestly counted. The worrisome thing is that soros owns the company that made the voting machines.

    Simply make “delegated votes” none living. A number given according to the number of votes. THEN the RINO’s can’t manipulate the WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

    • Dolores Adams

      The Republican party (RINOS and all) should support the candidate the people have chosen whether they like him or not. If they don’t, it’s a sure bet corrupt H.Clinton will get in as president. She will be worse than obuma.

  • otoman

    As a delegate, they should NOT have the right to “vote their conscience”. Their purpose is NOT to defy the will of the people. That is exactly what the republican party has done for a decade under Boehner. And THAT is why Trump is THE PEOPLES CHOICE.

    The RNC so-called party leaders are nothing but a bunch of spineless wimps ! Where were these scum bags when the Ahole in the White House was wiping his butt with the constitution ? May they all rot in hell !!! No matter what, Trump is my choice ! A lot better than the Bush’s and the Romney’s that couldn’t wait to be labelled as butt kissers and losers !
    Hey dirt bags ! It’s too late to change the rules ! The people have voted, now do something right that you couldn’t accomplish in the last seven and a half years !!!

    • Anouk

      Way to go Frankie Boy! Trump for President.

    • deepthink

      Well, I don’t care for some of the words/language you used, but I definitely agree with you!! GO TRUMP!
