Both major parties will have their conventions this month and formally name their party’s nominees. For the Democrats, this will most likely be Hillary Clinton. And for the Republicans, the presumptive nominee is Donald Trump.

On the Democratic side, Clinton’s only rival, Bernie Sanders has not yet endorsed her. And his followers are young, strong, and dislike Clinton. Bernie could drop the “D” and run as an independent candidate. Voting for or even endorsing Hillary Clinton will only prove that Bernie’s “revolution” was a lie to sway voters.

With the Republican side, there is the faction that wants to destroy itself and the party by denying Donald Trump his well earned nomination. These #neverTrump’ers as they call themselves want the GOP to fail. All so they can save face and say “I told you so.” They are really out for themselves and not the party, the people of the United States, or the voters.

Keep in mind that we have a republic. It’s not just our Congressmen and Senators that are to represent our interests as “we the people.” No, our delegates are also are duly elected representatives at the party level. They too are to represent the people who elected them. And the people of the Republican Party of the United States have clearly stated that they want Donald Trump to be the GOP nominee for President.

This notion of “freeing” the delegates is just as unethical as your congressman going to Washington and voting against everything you believe in. This would be a terrible mistake to allow the delegates to become unbound at the convention. Just ask King George III about how “we the people” felt about not being properly represented.
