Conservative donors have engaged a major GOP consulting firm in Florida to research the feasibility of mounting a late, independent run for president amid growing fears that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination.
Donors ask GOP consulting firm to research independent presidential bid


I like the way prisonplanet.com put it:


Some other flunky Republican-as-3rd-Party candidate would simply take votes from Trump, making it more likely that Clinton would win. These guys don’t think that their candidate will have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning.
Wealthy Republicans Planning to Run Third Party Candidate to Stop Trump


So, there's your democracy in the USA. If you can somehow raise (or spend from your own savings) the huge amounts of money needed to win, if you can somehow overcome all the cheating including rigged voting machines and a rigged election process, a paid off and controlled MSM, etc.

Then, if the establishment doesn't like you, they'll find another way. I suppose Trump should be happy if he just gets out of all this alive.

Remember this (IMHO shocking) statement by Bernie Sanders:


1. He is not running against Hillary Clinton

“I’m not running against Hillary Clinton,” he said. “She’s a candidate, I’m a candidate, and I suspect that there will be other candidates. The people in this country will make their choice.” His socialist platform is “one that resonates” with the American people, and he believes he can effectively appeal to them no matter who his opponent is, or how large her war chest is. But, as he’s said, he’s engaged in “a real struggle against the billionaire class.

Ironically, Trump should probably say the same thing.

Unless some Democrats pull together and run a left leaning 3rd party candidate, thus taking votes from Hillary. Then none of the candidates get a sufficient number of electoral college votes. This then throws the election into the House of Representatives. The House is loaded with mainstream Republicans who would choose the Republican-as-3rd-Party candidate.

How's that for a political conspiracy?

What is really amazing to me is how Trump is "flushing out" the establishment and entrenched politicians into a frenzy of panic and because of the panic, they are making way too many mistakes which all can see which exposes how corrupt the whole affair really is.

This is why I hope Trump wins. It would refresh the tree of liberty somewhat, and without people dying (maybe). The current American political machine needs to be burned to the ground and replaced with honesty and integrity and actual representation rather than deception and lies and covert murder. Even the FBI/CIA are totally corrupt and have hidden so many crimes and murders as to boggle the mind a thousand times over.

Trump is a very grave and imminent threat to their gravy train that has been running with total impunity, and still currently is. Perhaps not because he can stop it all like a superhero, but because "THEY" are afraid of what will happen to themselves if he wins a very great deal.

I find it amazingly hypocritical of the GOP to even consider this when the very first question asked at the first republican debate was asking the candidates to promise to not run as an independent in the event they were not the GOP nomination. The reason being that if any of them ran as an independent then it would take votes away from the GOP nomination.

What are these idiot wealthy donors thinking? They are going to hand this to Shillary Clinton.

Then again...maybe that's what they want.
