    The Republican National Committee won't allow Trump to be primaried.

    Democracy, GOP style.

    The republicans have sold their souls to trumpism.

    Their embrace of odious, hate filled, and vengeful politics has displayed how grotesque this nation truly is.

    Trump gets to finish off what once was the Republican party one on one.

    As a kicker, his primary campaign issue is handling National Debt, which I can certainly relate to. With his history of working with Dems and getting stuff done, I'd vote for him in R Primaries, ... if given a chance.

    I don't "see" anything. That's why I asked.

    Evidently, you don't "see" anything, either...but instead of asking, you don't mind making **** up.

    Yes, run along, your suggestion was obvious and I have no doubt you believe that it is the case, after a ll no real Republican would challenge the donald.

    I have no doubt there are some stupid "real Republican" NeverTrumpers who would waste their money trying to challenge Trump.
