Anti-Trump Effort at Convention Fails

by Right Wing Fighter

From the AP(scroll down to 8:10 PM):

A leader of conservatives making a last-ditch attempt to block Donald Trump’s nomination says she’s dropping her effort to force the Republican National Convention to vote on her plan to let delegates back any presidential candidate they want.

The convention rules committee has already rejected Colorado delegate Kendal Unruh’s proposal to “unbind” delegates from the candidates they were committed to by state primaries and caucuses.

Unruh had been saying that despite that defeat, she’d get enough support to force a full convention vote next week on her plan to let delegates vote their conscience.

So she wants them free to vote their conscience, eh?

What about the “consciences” that voted for Trump overwhelmingly in the primaries?

It aggravates me whenever I see these hollow nincompoops start preaching about “conscience” whenever they want to abuse the convention rules to get what they want. They could at least be honest about their cynical ploys. To hide them behind morality is disgusting.

It’s amazing the hollow, substanceless people politics attracts. It’s even more surprising, in a way, that we keep sending them back into power, as delegates and candidates. I imagine it’s more a matter of honest ignorance on the voter’s part than anything else.
