Well, all you hear about to stop Trump any more, thanks to the idiotic behavior of the Republicans, is a "brokered convention," i.e. the rich guys just deciding who the Republican candidate is going to be, regardless of what anyone else wants. Of course, that is pretty much how the Republican party has worked for a hundred years, but we keep hearing that it is that or Trump, who will lose in November. I want to suggest that there is a third possibility, which really scares me more than either one of the other two. And here it is:
We've heard a lot of "speculation" about a third party run by Michael Bloomberg, who despite being a multibillionaire just like Trump, the Koch brothers or the Waltons, is somehow being portrayed as a patriotic centrist. Well, of course, Bloomberg has as much chance of winning the election in November as Pippin the Hobbit. But here is what he could do: If a propaganda campaign big enough is mounted in his support, aimed not at Republicans, but at Democrats, Bloomberg could very well get enough votes to prevent either Hillary or Trump from winning a majority of the electoral college.
And what happens then? It is then the duty of the House of Representatives to pick the next President. Thanks to Gerrymandering, thee irrevocably Republican House of Representatives. The House of Representatives that is willing to cause any kind of damage to the country, in the service of their masters.
Well, who do you think they might pick? Or, like me, are you afraid to even start thinking about it?
