    Who would wanna **** with us if we voted in President Mad Dog?

    Idk much about him tbh but if the options are Hillary or Trump, he is worth a look. Can't be worse.

    Might have been a good idea to bLunt Trump....a year ago.

    These dipsh-t s like Bill Kristol who have made a career of failing upwards are very detached from reality. All of his solutions fail...because he is the problem.

    The RNC isn't a government body, it's a private organization so talking about "subverting a democratic process" is pretty ridiculous. It's no different than a company asking people what they want to name a 290 million dollar new ship and them ignoring them when the morons come up with "Boaty McBoatface". The RNC and DNC use primary elections to get an idea at what people say they want before making their decision but when they come up with something stupid, like Donald "Boaty McBoatface" Trump, there's nothing wrong with them picking someone else.

    Primary elections aren't real elections.

    I'm not sure a process with campaign ads, debates, that only allows registered voters to participate and then dutifully tabulates and applies those votes to the selection criteria needs to be governmentally administered to be democratic.

    How is him running as an independent or third-party candidate subverting a democratic process?

    If big money Republican donors don't like the Republican candidate, then what is wrong with them donating to a different candidate?

    I would rather these same billionaires run the loser of the Clinton/Sanders race as a third party candidate, to split the vote on the other side instead. A third party candidate running as a conservative draining votes from the republican candidate would be like 1992 all over again, and with the same result: a Clinton in the white house.

    You misunderstand the reason they are doing it then, they are more worried about Trump winning than Hillary winning.

    "Trump is a fascist lunatic and Hillary has one foot in a jail cell. That means the lunatic can win."

    No conservative wants Hillary to win, but the idea of Trump winning is just infinitely worse.
