With literally no chance whatsoever for John Kasich (a moderate liberal) to mathematically win the nomination Mitt Romney (the GOPe loser in 2012) endorses him and thereby continues to insert himself into the GOP race. Why? With obviously no chance for Marco Rubio (now firmly in the hip pocket of the GOPe) to ever win the GOP nomination (or apparently his own state of Florida for that matter) he wins the Washington DC delegates (he can't really win anywhere else) and in spite of all this remains in the race. Why?

  It’s because the rumors are likely true. The GOP establishment is finally being revealed for who they are. After all this time if you’ve wanted to see the man behind the curtain then here you go. The GOP is guilty of crying wolf in every election since 2010 (at least) and now the voters are in revolt. And man, it’s a good one. I encountered this same “spirit” in the GOP during my race for Congress in 2014. They made no attempt whatsoever to support any GOP candidate in TN05 against indentured do-nothing liberal Jim Cooper. The rumor was they’d made a “deal” with the Democrats long ago not to contest that district thereby disenfranchising their own constituents. Playing politics as usual they assert the will and assets of the people treating the power we give them as if it’s their own. In short, they sold you out folks. And now the chickens have come home to roost.

  In a full blown panic the GOP is now pulling a political stunt in a desperate attempt to contest the convention and some-how circumvent the entire process by inserting their own candidate. First it was Jeb Bush and then Marco Rubio. Both failed miserably. If true and if this is not a complete and total circumvention of the will of the people then you’re not alive and thinking thoughts right now. In their minds this is about their power and anything goes.

Pride comes before contention and haughtiness before a fall.

  What they’ve been doing speaks so loudly we can no longer here what they say. There is only one reason I can think of for a group of people to behave this way. In their own minds DC belongs to them, the power they wield belongs to them and they refuse to give it up. This is deluded of course which is what makes it so dangerous. It is also once again a duplication of history. Power and control aggregated into the hands of a few is precisely what the founding fathers of our nation attempted to mitigate.

  I told my campaign manager in 2014 that third party was not the way to go. That path has failed again and again. We would have to take our own party back from the inside out. The revolt began manifesting in the election of 2010 and is now reaching a fever pitch. Why? Because we are closer to accomplishing that now than any time since 1980.

  I’ve maintained for years America was and still is the greatest nation on earth with a divine calling. I still believe that. The problem is we’ve not had leadership who is actually devoted to the people and Constitutional Law. Not just in words mind you but in both words and deeds. Lip service is easy it’s the follow through that’s hard. 

Remember your Sun Tzu:  The Art of War.

“If equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferior in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal in every way, we can flee from him.”

No longer unequal (as in 2010 and 2012) or slightly inferior in numbers (2014) here we are in 2016 equally matched.

We can offer battle.
