WASHINGTON — The 2016 Republican National Convention is shaping up as a free-for-all where every delegate is a kingmaker, rules could change and no one will have an easy time figuring out what’s going on. In other words, no brokered convention. There aren’t any more brokers. “This is not something that will be decided wholesale,” said…

  1. No matter what this is going to be the convention that will going down in history. Outside the convention there will be protesters and I would be surprised if not real violence. I still think having guns on the convention floor could add even more interest with states shooting it out over candidates. This could be the end of the republican party.

  2. In the long run the party leaders and money people will get their way. They don’t care what the people of this country want. They want their own power and money, and screw the people. They would rather lose a national election then win will someone that won’t follow them like mice.

    • It’s always been that way. If anything they have become more responsive to the voters. The whole primary thing is fairly new. In Pa you still don’t vote for a candidate but for a delegate who may vote any way they want. This is where you get to see the power of the party and not the power of the candidate. The Republican Party has never been a grass roots party and is and always been run top down. It’s only been since the seventies that the common man had any say at all.
