Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus cautioned supporters of Donald Trump who vocally disapprove of the GOP's delegate allocation and selection process. "By the way, this is a nomination for the Republican Party," Priebus told 620 WTMJ in Wisconsin. "If you don't like the party, then sit down. The party is choosing a nominee."

The GOP is a private organization with every right to nominate its Presidential candidates any damn way it pleases. What's the problem exactly? Don't like it? Well that's what independent runs are for.
We are not citizens, we are subjects.

The self-destruction of the GOP is entertaining to watch.
What they are doing is damn near guaranteeing the Dems win the White House.
And if that fails, a group of Republicans are readying a nuclear option: running a third-party alternative in just a handful of critical swing states in order to block both Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from gaining the necessary 270 electoral votes required to claim the White House.
In such instances, according to the 12th Amendment to the Constitution, the choosing of the next president would then fall to the House of Representatives. In the House, each state casts one vote, and considering the current Republican majority in that chamber, would give the election to this newly created third-party ticket.

If Trump gets the nomination, more people than ever will come out to vote AGAINST him than we've ever seen in American history, I guarantee you. People that NEVER vote will get off their ass to vote against him.
This is why the GOP is trying to ditch Trump. They want to actually look like they're trying to win.
