    "No fairness, no peace!" You people are too funny. :laugh2:

    The rules were made over a year ago. And the main rules says those rules can be amened, if a majority of the delegates desire it. If you mudwhistle, want to throw around terms like 'idiot' I suggest you tread carefully, lest you expose yourself for all to see.

    Of course it is considered, but taking people's preferences into consideration is what you are objecting to. You want outsiders to have all of the say in how political party chooses a nominee to represent them. One word: Nuts!

    No, I want delegates to vote for the candidate that won them. It has nothing to do with outsiders.

    But there are rules. You just happen to dislike rules that don't sure with your preferences.

    very funny

    That was an out and out lie.

    Better luck to you next time.

    How narrow minded.

    Why is he the only one you want to hold to such a high standard? Hillary isn't an angel either. Cliche argument perhaps, but it's also speaks to your irrevocable biases.

    It's quite an issue. It's "rights of free speech and assembly" not the "right to assemble and commit violence freely."

    See what I mean? What you see as "peaceful protest" is actually not. Stomping on police cars, shutting down other's rights to free speech and assembly, starting fights, causing riots... not one iota of that is peaceful.

    Is it? From what I've seen, plenty of people on both sides have done just that, given themselves to their base instincts and passions. It's no longer a choice, but an impulse. A desire.

    So, when will you commit to condemning the acts of physical violence which are instigated by members of your own party?

    Also, I don't look down on those in my family who I love or those whom I respect and admire, simply for not condemning this, or condemning that. That's their prerogative. Not yours. Not mine. I'm not one to tell other people how to think or act.

    What kind of mind only looks at only one half of the picture?

    As evidenced in the previous paragraph, your liberal principles compel you to do no such thing. Your assault on the minds, or rather the judgement, of others who don't condemn what you hope them to condemn only sees to the opposite. I'm not even one third of the way through your "Op-Ed" and your animosity is clearly evident.

    You contradict yourself. Your entire post thus far has been an attempt to convince the reader that "Trump is an asshole." So far, you have done nothing but make broad based assumptions about those who support the man as a candidate or that fail to uphold the standards you have for Donald Trump.

    You have essentially crossed the line from "opinion" to "assertion."

    Yes, you do have the right to protest with your speech, by word of mouth, not the forceful blows of hands and feet. Am I sensing a theme here?

    Violence is violence. There is no greater or lesser violence. Violence occurs when the first punch is thrown. Your attempt to downplay this is truly disheartening.
