Mitt Romney has instructed his closest advisers to explore the possibility of stopping Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, a source close to Romney's inner circle says.If this is accurate, then we have an all-out war between the establishment and Trump-led rank and file Republican members.
The 2012 GOP nominee's advisers are examining what a fight at the convention might look like and what rules might need revising.
"It sounds like the plan is to lock the convention," said the source.
Unfortunately, it is completely unclear what policies Trump would institute. Indeed, I am not sure he would stop US entanglements overseas. He is not going to fight neocon wars, for sure. but he could very well send US ground troops to fight that "great threat to America" ISIS. And it is likely that it would only take one false flag operation to get Trump hopped up over pretty much any country.
On the domestic front, it looks like he would be a net positive on healthcare, but he talks idiotic trade wars, has an insane illegal immigration policy (I can't imagine the police state that would be required to toss 11 million generally hard-working illegals out of the country)and would be terrible on basic civil liberties. And it appears he has the authoritarians Guiliani and Christie as advisers.
It is just too early for revolution. Nothing good will come out of this Republican internal war,
