    The fact that the least charitable billionaire on earth was nominated to run seemed rather intentional but the American people are derr. Whether he drops out of the race or not, people are going to sabotage this entire presidential campaign and it's not even surprising to me. To the rest of the people it's still a Red VS Blue thing. Making it worse for the few of us who are aware of the fact that voting changes nothing regarding the corporations running Washington. I don't blame Trump. It's the people who embrace these political labels who are wreaking havoc.

    Sounds to me like he's threatening the public, all the more reason to arrest him or kick him out.

    My heart goes out to all Americans. The thought of Trump winning the presidency scares the hell out of me, and I'm Canadian.... How did we let things get to this sad state of affairs?

    As much as I don't agree with Trump on many counts, he has a point in this case.

    I believe it was the Democrats who tried that last, in 1965? (going from memory)and it didn't go well then either.

    It has nothing to do with whether he's the right man for the job, and *everything* to do with whether you are a democracy.

    If he wins the majority of the delegates, and then the GOP brass decide to not take him, they had better expect that the GOP *members* who gave him his majorities in the primaries are going to be more than pissed off.

    And these *are* GOP members - frequently, pro-gun voters, so if I was GOP brass looking at doing this, I'd be scared. Given they created this situation by playing the "well, we don't like the President, so anything he proposes, even if good for the country, we will block" game, and pissing off the citizenry to the point they want a *non* politician, I suggest they take their lumps and go with what their members want.

    Nice post drama queen. He didn't say that, he pointed out that millions of people support him and that if he's denied the nomination they could get violent.

    That is very clearly a threat. "Elect me or else you get riots."

    Well, nobody in their right mind would think this a threat. It's more of a prediction. Hopefully it's not a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Either way, it is at best a poor choice of words but considering the source, it is not a surprising one. He would have been better off saying there would be "mutiny in the GOP."

    Even more proof that Trump really isn't cut out for global politics. I think he could be a real danger.

    Do you believe that is the case in the General Election and the Electoral College as well.

    I don't. That was designed to give a slight advantage to smaller states, and I think there's good reasons for this.

    Amazing that this bastard is where he is. I hope he gets cut out of the mix, but we'll see what the convention brings. You never know what might happen in the meantime.

    I agree. And, having attended more than my reasonable share of them, I think both parties' whole convention system is silly. What's so hard about a series of direct national primaries, where the votes themselves are tallied and determine the nominee? IF, and only if, no candidate receives 50%+1 of the vote - or some higher number as the parties may determine - would a convention be held, at which point all's open. Conventions are a bunch of silly, feel-good BS and a waste of time and money.

    Well "we" ignored the will of millions of middle class voters for the last 20 years. Globalization hollowed out the middle class and the political class was clueless.

    More than clueless they continue to pile up endless regulations to hinder small business formation. They have added trillions to our debt and the Federal Reserve is still trying on its own the keep the markets from crashing... many years after 2009.

    My read of the average voter is that the corrupt mess be tossed out and we start over. I agree with the opinion Trump is neither liberal or conservative but rather a pragmatist. He should get more done than Hillary or Bernie. They will merely provide continuation.

    I think Cruz would have been a better choice but I don't think that is to be. He will probably be the VP choice.

    That Trump is scaring the hell out of the established elites in DC is a good thing. This is their reward and they should have seen it coming.

    Don't feel bad. This country has faced difficulties before.

    He's right though. Given how rabid his core supporters are by this point there will be. Back in 2000, when Bush won the Electoral vote but not the popular vote, people were furious with that outcome as well. Can you imagine what will happen if Trump is getting the delegates but still 67% of Republicans don't want him nominated. It sounds like some people just aren't voting to make that a point.

    Trump is reality TV star. He has no friends or family. Best to have the dam riot and get it over with. Cleveland is a fly over junk city.

    That's not a message for the GOP, he is just giving out instructions to his supporters. Smart move on his part, as always preaching violence and chaos.

    I remember contested/brokered conventions from the days of yore, but this is a different thing. I have never seen the leadership of the party come right out and say that they were flat out against a candidate in this way.

    It is handy for those who think in catch phrases to say that the status quo feels threatened but there is more to it than that. This guy would have Democrats pleading for a return of W. He would have Republicans pleading for their least favorite. Oh wait, that is every Democratic President since 1950. Hmm. That says something in itself.

    Republcians, you got some 'splainin' to do....
