#4 Considering the system was set up so each state was in charge of its election process and the feds stayed out of it so they didn't interfere with it...

Yeah, I would say that the political elite are doing everything they can to trash the constitution, the system we have and our freedoms to stay in power.

#5 The heads of both parties have come out and said the primaries really don't matter because the party gets to choose, in spite of the vote. Like Trump or not, if the GOP fails to select him it will mark the end of the GOP, and probably the republic as we know it. This is not sky is falling silliness. If the GOP fails here the party will go into disarray and at best dissolve and go through restructure. This will take a number of election cycles to do. The Dems will place libs in the Supreme Court. They will attack everything conservative and we will slide into a more Marxist state. These old Republicans need to understand their antics are delusional and they are placing more than just this election cycle at risk.

#7  a more Marxist state.

49Pan, I think it will be a Fascist not Marxist state. The Fascists don't want state ownership they want state control via their handpicked oligarchs who are set up to take the blame if things go to wrong.

What the two ideologies have in common is control and power and NO liberty.

They don't care. They actually believe they will be allowed to like their master's bowl after she's done. Delusional fools.

#12 Well, wouldn't that decision also release Hilly's delegates?

#13 Wouldn't Trumps delegates be folks chosen by Trumps people?

Also, wouldn't this ruling allow Hillary delegates to vote their conscience as well?

#14 And doesn't the constitution leave election issues to the states? Why is a federal judge involved?

#15 Alan, if the GOP implodes fascism will look good with respect to where we will head. Hillary is a Marx/Lenin socialist. She desires a larger fed to step over all things. She is following the Trotsky model. A subtle difference is Marxism definitively leads to. Socialist fed. Her it takes a village shit is clearly in that vein.
