- Republicrats - One of the open borders Establishment donors saying he would support Hillary over Trump tells you everything you need to know about the Elite GOP Ruling Class.
- None of them give a crap about the American people. It is all an insiders club where they line each other's pockets with our tax dollars.
(Business Insider) - Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson released a fiery statement on Friday denouncing a reported meeting attended by his party’s top leaders earlier in the week.
“If the leaders of the Republican Party want to destroy the party, they should continue to hold meetings like the one described in the Washington Post this morning,” Carson said.
The retired neurosurgeon even threatened to leave the GOP, referencing front-runner Donald Trump’s own threats to run as an independent.
“If this was the beginning of a plan to subvert the will of the voters and replace it with the will of the political elite, I assure you Donald Trump will not be the only one leaving the party,” Carson said.
The Washington Post reported on Thursday that a number of Republican officials, including Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), had a dinner on Monday where they discussed how the party would handle a so-called brokered convention.
Carson was clearly unhappy that the Monday meeting even took place.
“I pray that the report in the Post this morning was incorrect,” he said in the Friday statement. “If it is correct, every voter who is standing for change must know they are being betrayed. I won’t stand for it.”
This process is the one played out by our party. If the powerful try to manipulate it, the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next summer may be the last convention. I am prepared to lose fair and square, as I am sure is Donald. But I will not sit by and watch a theft. I intend on being the nominee. If I am not, the winner will have my support. If the winner isn’t our nominee then we have a massive problem. My campaign is about “We the People” not “They the Powerful.”
