    Talk grows of replacing Trump at GOP convention

    Basically, there are those within the Republican party who are trying to get another person nominated as the Republican nominee who hasn't even campaigned, just to be rid of Trump. What the F*ck about what the people have voted in all of the primaries? I think the people have made it clear who they would like the nominee to be. What gives these uppity political scum the right to decide against the popular vote? It's fast becoming the time to water the tree of Liberty! This is the most egregious, rights trampling, will-of-the-people ignoring bull I have heard in my 51 years.

    And it's true: what's the difference between a Republican and a Democrat?

    One is in office, one isn't.

    The primaries are for preference, not selection. Delegates to the conventions aren't necessarily locked into voting a particular way, especially if the first ballot is not conclusive. The rules are set by the parties, and can be changed on a moment's notice. The system sucks, beyond question.

    They won't do it. Bluffing but who knows why? Probably trying to get Trump to deal. Nahhhh...if they did that it would be pushing the destruct button on the Republican party. They would not only lose the Presidential election but the party also.... They would be finished.

    What I think is funny about this is they all made a pledge to support the popular nominee back at the beginning. And they made a big deal about Trump originally being unwilling yo support the Republican nominee. Now these old dags won't support the Republican popular nominee. more evidence that they have no integrity, no honor, their word is no good

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    It's all about what's in it for them, not what's in it for us.

    Never ceases to amaze me how little time it takes a people to forget their history.

    My guess is it power jockeying over the VP, its been quiet but there are those in the REP who want to blackmail Trump in to taking whom they advise. A friend of my mom who is up there in the politics world say Rubio is whom they want as VP and trump is not wanting that.
    Its all behind closed doors BS.

    Yeah so Trump can get whacked giving his inauguration speech and then the RNC can have who they wanted all along. Assuming Trump beats the Hildabeast of course.

    Their house. Their rules.
    If they want to pull the toupee off at the last minute. Their prerogative. But as always, there will be consequences to any choices made including making him the official nominee.
