RNC Disenfranchises Voters??? Not So Much.
I hear every day how Trump supporters will be very upset (to put it mildly) if, in their words, their candidate is “robbed” of the nomination. They claim a Trump loss will mean the “disenfranchisement” of his supporters should he only have a plurality of the delegates going into the convention, and not leave with the nomination. The fact of the matter is that the nomination of a presidential candidate for either of the two major parties is not a result of direct democracy, and even if it was, elections are not won by pluralities. Elections are won by majorities.
Brussels and #NeverTrump
As I awoke this morning to the news of the multiple attacks in Brussels, a lot of things rushed to mind. Not only sympathy for our friends in Belgium, but a reminder of how much worse it could be in this War on Terror. Every time I hear about a bomb attack I imagine what would happen if it was a dirty bomb. I imagine just how much worse the carnage and death could be, and I’m reminded that the terrorists groups want the next bomb to be a dirty bomb, or worse, a nuclear bomb.
Becoming a National Republican Delegate from Texas
This year, however, there’s a very good chance that no one candidate will have met the required threshold of 1237 votes to win the nomination outright. This may send the Republican Party delegates into the convention in Cleveland with more work on their hands than they usually expect. It will also mean that the competition to become a delegate to the National convention from Texas will be fierce.
A few months ago my sister started posting a video daily on Facebook. Everyday it was the same man but everyday it was a different video. For a variety of reasons, I scrolled right by until one-day curiosity got the best of me and I clicked.
