It's a murder-suicide pact in desperation to keep the establishment elites in control... by ceding control to the Democrats in order to deny it to Trump. It's better be in control of a non-entity than to lose it to Trump.
Donors ask GOP consulting firm to research independent presidential bid
A group of Republicans is moving quickly to research ballot-access requirements for independent candidates in case Trump wraps up the GOP nomination next month.
But “with 38 electoral votes in play in Texas and North Carolina’s true swing state status, failing to qualify in either or both states would render any independent candidate non-viable,” the report's authors wrote. “This is logistically possible but will require immediate action.”
By July 15, the independent candidate would need more than 460,000 voter signatures to make the ballot in 11 states. Assuming an April 1 start date, the campaign would have to gather 4,345 valid signatures per day to maintain a steady pace.
Why, I remember when the establishment elites demanded that there BE NO THIRD PARTY and PARTY LOYALTY IS ESSENTIAL! That was, what? Six months ago? Well that was then, and the party hacks are slimy, as this proves.
Gawd, I love this campaign year - nothing like it in my lifetime, and all due to Trump vs the totalitarian party elite slimebags.
