That's right folks. After twisting the arms of all candidates to sign the pledge promising to support the nominee, whoever it might be, GOP leaders are now making plans to challenge Trump should he win the nomination for the Republicans.
But they need to be careful. If GOP leaders alienate Trump they risk him breaking off and running on a third party ticket. That would crush any hope of a Republican victory and assure us of a Clinton (or God forbid Sanders) victory.
There's also more bad news for libertarians. It would appear Rand Paul will not make the main stage of the next CNN Republican debate. I'm not entirely sure how important this is. Other candidates like Carly have managed to make major headlines by performing well on the secondary stage, but that was early on in the debates. As Americans tire of these spectacles, it's going to get harder and harder for second-tier candidates to make the cut.
What's more disconcerting to me is Rands inability to pull more than 3.5% of the vote in Iowa or New Hampshire. The Rand campaign has told us from the start not to pay attention to his low polling numbers. They assured us there was a large, successful ground game going on behind the scenes. But the recent polling numbers would say otherwise.
In the back half of the show, I'll talk a little more ObamaCare. Apparently the last remaining Co-op is now millions in debt and will likely be closing up shop as well.
Then it's on to gun control. President Obama is attempting to make another end run around Congress to get his gun restriction plans implemented.
These are the times that try men's souls gents. Let's not lose heart. Continue to fight and spread the message of liberty.
