To believe that the GOP is going to allow this cycle’s obviously most popular Republican candidate, Donald Trump, to win the Republican nomination, one would have to totally dismiss the nominations that were manipulated or downright stolen from the populist candidates in the past. Just a partial list would include: Ronald Reagan 1976, Pat Buchanan 1996, Mike Huckabee 2008 and certainly Ron Paul in 2012. The video above shows only about 1/2 of 1% of the shenanigans that were played on Ron Paul by the establishment in the last cycle, just 4 years ago.
To get back in touch with reality and the magnitude of tricks played in recent years throughout the primary season, voters should remember or even find out for the first time how bad it really was back in 2012. For instance, while Ron Paul was still having to rent stadiums for every campaign stop (like Donald Trump is now), the mainstream press deceptively put out headlines like, “Where is Ron Paul?”, desperately trying to mislead voters into thinking that he had dropped out of the race. In case you missed the real history of Ron Paul’s candidacy and a portion of what a majority of the national mainstream press did to him, you would pathetically need to consult YouTube to catch up on the real sorry state of Presidential politics in America by watching, “How Ron Paul Was Cheated Out Of Presidency”.
How is all this relevant to the 2016 contest? In the ultimate and final charade of the 2012 nomination process, establishment leaders grossly “approved” new rules which will make it even easier to stop anti-establishment candidates such as Donald Trump or Rand Paul. If they can’t manage to beat them by using computers to count the votes in secret or deploying strong arm tactics at state conventions in order to send only establishment boys to the RNC, they now have the new rules in place allowing them to replace any delegates they choose to. If you don’t think establishment party leaders will be able to find enough corrupt people in your state to wrongly replace legitimate delegates at the Republican National Convention, you probably have not been paying close enough attention to your own state’s corrupt political landscape.
The bottom line here is that the tricks in store for Donald Trump’s candidacy have only just begun. He most likely has some very trusted people advising him but good heartfelt intentions do not always equate to good advice.
The fact is that a candidate like Donald Trump did not need the Republican Party to get onto the general election ballot. Instead, it was the last thing that he needed. He could have and should have taken his money and all his loyal supporters and launched the greatest Independent or 3rd Party run in US history! He could have been assured a spot on the ballot in November without all the headaches and party establishment trickery that are surely planned to come. Money put into his campaign should have been spent on ballet access instead of having to fight a dozen other candidates. He could have gotten an early start taking his message to all 50 states while the rest of the candidates in the major parties are still battling it out, worried about primary contests.
Well, what do us little people know anyway?
