Warning to the Trumpets. It ain’t over. It is just beginning.
Below are a list of tactics that Establishment Republicans may use to
block the nomination of Donald Trump. Yes, I know. If they succeed
they will not win the White House but many in the establishment will
make just as much money under a Democrat insider as they will with a
Republican insider. So they may not care.
All they may want to do is send the message to any future “outsider”
candidate, “This is our party and you need our approval to participate.
If you try to do this without us we will destroy you.”
These tactics were used in 2012 to keep Libertarian insurgents from
winning delegates to the Republican National Convention. The fear was
that Ron Paul would be able to place his name in nomination and give a
speech about capital cronyism and how big corporations use the system to
corrupt free enterprise. Donald Trump can learn from our experience.
What was at stake in 2012? Money. What’s at stake now? Money.
But why will low level party stalwarts who don’t get that money play along and do the bidding of the big party leaders?
To keep their positions as State, County or Precinct Chairmen. Power.
Ego. Prestige. They want that all expenses paid trip to the Republican
National Convention. Booze. Free corporate gifts. A box of Godiva
chocolates left on their pillow in their room each night. They know that
candidates like Trump come and go but the party infrastructure
, financed by companies and their lobbyists, remain forever.
Here’s what the new Trump supporters can expect. (Carefully follow

of how these things happened in 2012.)
