Looking through the exit polls, they show at least 50 percent of GOP voters feel "betrayed" by their own party.
The craziest part is they still don't get it.
The rebellion in the DNC is being crushed by Hillary. But will those who feel disenfranchised stay with the party? They are more closely aligned with Donald Trump than Hillary. Had he not been friends with the Clintons he would have been an obvious Democrat nominee.
The establishment of the GOP is now gunning for a brokered convention. They have no idea how close they are to a beat-down as happened to Charles Sumner with the Whig party. Because the GOP establishment doesn't respond to the people and are living in their own Versailles, they are now responsible for the most liberal progressive Republican slip-in --- and use the people's anger to destroy the party (which has outlived its usefulness) --- but more importantly, the ruination of our conservative principles.
If Rubio would have stayed true to what he promised the people, he would have walked away with this, but he chose McCain, McConell and Romney.
Half of the voters already tonight say they will not be happy with Trump if he is the nominee. Why? Those who aren't voting for him are embarrassed by him, think he is unstable and most importantly, we actually believed in the things we marched for during the Tea Party movement.
Dave Bratt was their final wake up call. If they would have listened to the people then, they wouldn't be facing total destruction now. They slept while the people cried out. It is no surprise to me as I have warned them since 2004 that this and worse was coming.
I believe it may be too late for either party. I pray it is not too late for the republic.
The establishment is still pushing for Rubio even if it means a brokered convention, which would be a disaster and only make everyone angry.
Washington doesn't understand that we the people actually believe in principles. But now, as George Washington predicted in his farewell address, someone who seeks to benefit himself has slipped through the two parties fueled by a desire to punish, over principles.
We don't want Obama care or Trump care. We don't want special favors, but equal justice for all. Nixon should have gone to jail and so should Clinton.
Until these parties decide to fumigate their own house, this is only going to get worse, and now that Hillary will have her shot, look for another celebrity to run in four or eight years.
We have all been betrayed by those in DC. I pray this is not the last peaceful revolution at the ballot box. But if the person that becomes president allows cronyism and back-room deals, it just well may be and those who have formed the habit of saying "let them eat cake" will be facing the rage of a population that has taken it for far too long.
