Every single poll shows Hillary Clinton CRUSHING Trump in a general election...and Frankly...no one even likes Hillary..

As much as I can't trust or stand Trump, I find it telling how our political system in no way embraces Lincoln's belief of "government for and by the people." We have a conservative party who doesn't like a particular candidate so they're trying to stop him from being nominated. This flies in the face of what our country is all about. Right now, the majority of conservatives want Trump to represent them as a presidential candidate. The final election in November will decide if the people really want this man to become president of the United States.
We have a system of checks and balances in our system of government. If Trump is elected president and is proves to be bad and dangerous for the U.S., or if he starts to over-step his authority, I'm sure congress wouldn't hesitate to immediately impeach him. The media is responsible for showing the inconsistency and lies of all candidates. Let the people weigh the facts and decide who they want to represent them.
This election clearly shows why the "party system" should be eliminated because it clearly doesn't allow the "will of the people" to decide who they want to represent them.
