    There's something unique about Trump though. The more they attack him, the stronger he gets. I can't think of any candidate in recent history that has been able to weather such a barrage of attacks and come out not-only unscathed, but stronger. The only thing they could try to stop the guy at this point right now is to ignore Trump, which isn't likely to happen. Attacking Trump makes him stronger. It's a political anomaly. Other candidates failed to realize it during the primary debates. Many on the forums haven't realized it yet. I tried to say that Rand should probably let others on stage do the Trump-attacking and let them fall by the wayside, but even Rand was tempted to target Trump like a bug drawn to the bug-zapper.

    Trump isn't even president yet, so I'm not sure how that's his fault. Why aren't they protesting Obama?

    I'm not seeing where cleaner44 did that. His main points so far: 1) Trump will likely be the nominee. 2) Quit worrying about it and crusading on the forums against it (because if you aren't worried about it then you wouldn't). 3) Any candidate would be better than Hillary.

    There's a strong assumption that everyone here who supports Trump is doing it primarily for Trump's benefit. It's entirely possible that you can think Trump is a terrible candidate and yet still want him to win. I've said time and time again, I think a Trump victory will make the next liberty candidate's chances much better than with any of the other candidates running, and with 2016 pretty much a done-deal, I'm focusing on the future. Everyone else seems to be caught up in fighting a present-tense lost cause with no outlook or input whatsoever on how we can use the cards we've been dealt this election to make things easier for us in the future.

    Really, a google search of the word '******' to determine racism? You realize that there are probably more rap songs with the word in the lyrics than there are white people who use it. It's more likely that people are on google trying to find the lyrics to 'that song they heard on the radio' than an indication of racism, lol.

    We have all now witnessed the republican party self destruct , 3 presidential elections consecutively. War has not decreased, but increased, and now the ignorance prevails when the average person in america cares more about harriet tubman being placed on paper fiat than their dollar actually being backed by silver or gold. no federal reserve audit has happened or will happen...so whats this forum for? peace out.

    And . . . again. If you don't have the majority, you don't have the majority. Maybe if we'd had the majority in 2012 they wouldn't have been able to change the rules? Instead they stamped us out without a whimper. In any case, what Cruz is attempting to do with the delegate blitz won't last. It's a desperate scheme to try to capture the crown and just as we did in 2012, he's gonna make more enemies than converts with the strategy. I'm just glad the establishment is on the outside-looking-in this time.

    I believe it was paid actors. They still continue garbage on TV. Real Housewives, and even worse, Real Housewives of ATL, is nothing but women being bitches to each other and men just playing the role of some mindless sex drone for them to fight over. I work in a hospital and one night 3/4 of my patients were watching some real housewives of ATL marathon. I would leave one room listening to bitchy women cuss at each other and enter another room picking up the conversation where it left off. Thank God I work at night and when my patients go to sleep I cut that shit off.

    As someone who was a delegate for RP in 2012 and only confirmed my suspicion that the delegate strategy was a hail-mary play in a snow-storm with a lead football, let me say that if you don't have the majority, you don't have the majority. In 2012, we essentially blitzed the caucuses and conventions, showed up temporarily with greater numbers, managed to piss off more people than we won over, and got stomped in half when they ran back and told their friends that "fringe nutters" had tried to take over the party and more people were needed to kick them back out. And that's exactly what happened. We never had the numbers to pull off a party take-over, and let's be realistic, we still don't. Now it's 2016 and Cruz appears to be using the same tactic: A temporary delegate blitz to stun his opponents, and a beachhead landing that he may not even be able to hold before they dump him back into the ocean during the convention. For better or worse, it won't last.

    I'm not convinced of #1. If Trump were the establishment, then it would behoove the GOPe to tell either Cruz or Trump to drop out, since you're implying that they control both candidates at the moment. This level of disunity is NOT what the GOPe wants, and fueling both sides of the flame would not benefit the GOPe. They want everyone to line up behind their choice of candidate, no questions asked, and they are irritated that people are not lining up behind Cruz. I'm starting to think that Trump is not the establishment, but rather, a wild card that the GOPe did not plan for, or at least, was not prepared for. Study the man. Trump is driven primarily by his own ego. It's a huge character flaw, yes, but it is not the same as being supported by the establishment. He won't negotiate so long as he is winning outright. However, I do think if he begins losing, he would not be above dealing with the establishment to get the nomination. That does concern me. Therefore I think it is important that he crushes them outright so that he doesn't owe them anything for them rolling over.

    I'm a bit torn, I can't fully disagree with you, but there's one thing nagging me: The problem is that the 'little guy' in this case is the establishment's pick, and the establishment must not be allowed to keep escaping these battles and returning in 4 years to hinder us. It's gotta be crushed outright before we can make any real progress, whatever it takes. And it doesn't seem politically advantageous to them to have Trump win, but I'm not committed to any candidate. If the establishment jukes, I'll be ready.

    That would be lovely, yes, but I do not believe it is necessary. Something has to shake their unquestioning loyalty to the GOP establishment, whether it comes in the form of something that is merely perception, or harsh reality. It is their perception that Trump was cheated. óThe harsh reality is that the GOP establishment does not want Trump, and the voters who feel cheated (even if they weren't) will now be going over every move the establishment makes with a fine tooth comb. These people have already come a long way from the days when they just did everything the establishment told them to do. Maybe I'm the only one who sees it, but I see that as progress. There is probably a good debate to be had over whether the means justify the ends, I'll grant you that. There are short term goals and long-term goals. Keeping Trump out of office is a short term goal that many people here are fixated on. Okay great, the guy sucks, put him in the bin with the other ones. A good long term goal would be to somehow create a giant schism between the broader republican base and the GOP establishment. I'm sorry to be so blunt here, but 12 years (+decades for some of us) of making well reasoned arguments have not managed to break that bond as rapidly and as effectively as what just played out in Colorado. That cannot be disputed. So with that in mind I would say to Colorado's Trump supporters, Sure 'the Colorado GOP cheated' (wink, wink), but if I were you guys, I'd be reading the teleprompter over my heads this year if you really want something to be pissed off about. Then, it's just a matter of time:

    Who cares what they protest?!?! I mean damn, If they're pissed off at the GOP leaders because they don't like the font style used in the Colorado convention handouts, who. gives. a. F'k? They're mad at the establishment. That's all that matters. If they stop listening to the establishment, then maybe, just maybe, one day they'll listen to us. That is—if we can refrain from running around poking them in the eye and laughing at them.

    I wish you would discuss how you plan to deal with the establishment that is standing behind Cruz, but no, Trump must be stopped at all costs and I guess we'll just bend over and take it in 2020 like we have the last 3 elections. Some of us are actually quite tired of seeing the establishment win every time, and we're exceptionally weary of you opening 5 new threads every day quoting some establishment buffoon on why Trump sucks and is an idiot.

    Cruz wins the nomination, the GOP establishment breathes a sigh of relief that the Tasmanian Devil Trump didn't get the nod, and GOP leaders go back to beating up on the liberty movement, probably some guys at Goldman Sachs get kickbacks, and basically nothing changes. Or Trump wins the nomination, the GOP establishment scrambles to try to find a way to throw the election to Hillary (hopefully fails, and realizes they are no longer relevant and should just quit existing), the liberty movement is wide-open in 4 years to waltz in through the door Trump knocked down, probably some guys from Goldman Sachs throw Cruz off of a bridge with a cinderblock tied around his ankles because he failed them, and after 4, maybe 8 years of a devastating Trump presidency, we might actually have a chance to change something.

    Yes, that would be a good potential outcome. I was an avid Bush supporter up until something happened that completely shook my faith in him, the Bailouts. Once that happened, my mind was free and open enough for Ron Paul to fill that void. Something clicked and suddenly Ron Paul was changing my mind on issues that I thought I was pretty firm on (War on Terror). Anything that will piss off more than just us (because we are obviously not enough people to exact any meaningful change politically) would be an ideal outcome.

    The media hates trump. They only gave him that attention at first because he was entertaining and good for ratings. But the media has one purpose: to mold opinions. Profit comes second to that. Now that shit is getting serious and the guy might actually win this thing, they're pulling out all the stops to bring him down. Just look at the sheer multitude of Op-Eds, blog posts and polling data that CPUd is finding and reposting here on RPF. They are panicking. They did the SAME EXACT THING to Ron Paul. He got all kinds of interviews at first, particularly around the time of the bailouts, but when the race drew nearer to conclusion the media was told to cut it out. Again, if anyone has a better idea to break the establishment's hold on the GOP voters, let's hear it. Hopefully you can come up with something better than putting up a reasonable candidate with positive ideas and a passion for liberty, because we've tried that 3 times in a row now and the establishment is still there, cock-blocking and laughing at us. Trump is like a Roomba, you put him on the floor and turn him loose and he sucks up dirt, but you don't know which way he's gonna go. hell, he might suck up the cat, get stuck in a corner, or piss off the dog. I'm willing to accept that risk. We've tried everything else and it isn't working.

    And he's on course to wreck the establishment. Something Rand should have been doing, but he was too afraid to ruffle feathers, meanwhile Trump doesn't give a damn. In fact it was painful to watch the debates as I warned that Rand Paul should have been wiser not to put himself in a position where Trump might flip things around and make Rand appear more like an establishment candidate, which is what essentially happened. You can't pin that on Trump. Rand played a weak 'outsider' game (harkening back to many a debate on these forums where we've begged and pleaded not to rub elbows and play nice with establishment leaders) from the start while Trump owned the title of 'outsider' (debatable whether he truly is) and went headstrong towards opposition. I told people that Rand Paul would find himself holding an empty bag in exchange for 'playing politics'. Trump shows that none of that 'play ball' mentality matters. This isn't a gentleman's game of golf here. You get in there and run over anyone and everyone who gets in your way. I wish it were Rand up there as the establishment's chief opposition right now. It isn't, and as I said, maybe that's a good thing. It means we can let these two forces collide without having to be near the scene of the crash. Hate Trump if you want to, but we'd be damned fools not to learn anything from him. The GOP liberty candidate in 2020 better be as headstrong, stubborn, and committed as Trump (with better ideas), or they aren't getting a damned dime from me. Again, my goal is to wreck the establishment, hopefully this election cycle because I'm tired of all this dicking around thinking we'll just go around them. Go through them! smash them to pieces! I see no progress for liberty within the GOP until that happens, and of the remaining contenders, I'll vote for whomever is in the best position to make it happen.

    This, even though it really isn't even about Trump in my opinion. Trump is a tool. He is little more than a battering ram to knock down the establishment. He is a hurricane in a greenhouse. To people who are trying to drag Trump down Let me ask frankly: Are you guys gonna use Cruz to defeat the establishment? Is he gonna turn around and drive the people out of the party who endorsed him? Oh wait, maybe Hillary will handle the GOP establishment. Sanders? Gonna vote for the libertarian and get <2% of the vote while the establishment yawns? Write in Rand Paul? I'm curious if and how anyone could make a case that there's any better way to defeat the GOP establishment than the opportunity we have sitting right here in front of us, right now. If there is a way to do it that won't take 100 years, let's hear it. It's not about Trump. It's not about Hillary. All these debates about polls and statistics about who is the best person to beat who are meaningless. Those are meaningless fights between candidates who at most will only be around 8 years. Your main objective is the GOP establishment.

    LOL. I would have to disagree with LE that Trump would 'save the country." My motives for wanting to support him are purely about knocking out the GOP establishment. The next 4 years are gonna suck regardless of whether it is Trump, Cruz, Sanders, or Hillary, but I don't want to miss out on a chance to run the neocons out of the party for good, and only one of those 4 people are in any position to do that. I really hope the GOP establishment tries to swindle the nomination from Trump and they anger their base. I hope the establishment denies Trump any support in the general election and he wins anyway. And I hope the liberty movement is ready to swoop in and pick up the pieces in 4 years, when the American voters decide they didn't really like Trump and the old neocons who once ran the party are all senile and trying to vote in nursing homes with their bingo cards.

    I understand them, but politics is only good for destroying things. It is quite useless for noble and benevolent causes such as the advancement of liberty, at least so long as the establishment is around, we will never have the numbers. Therefore I will use politics to destroy the establishment. If that makes me a bad libertarian so be it. I see it as something that must be done if we are to stop pissing around with half-assed campaigns to secure the GOP nomination for the liberty movement, only to realize the establishment is setting up roadblocks and moving goalposts every step of the way. Enough is enough.
