Effort to Stop Trump at Republican Convention Grows

Kendal Unruh, Stop-Trump Leader
Kendal Unruh, Republican activist extraordinaire reports the movement to stop Trump at the Republican convention is growing.  Originally there were said to be 30 delegates in fifteen states participating.  A later figure was at least 400 delegates.  And now the claim is even higher.

This is surely good news for the country, as a Trump with the imprimatur of a major political party in the U.S. would do grave harm to the nation politically and otherwise.

It is not hard to understand why so many delegates are no jumping onto the stop-Trump bandwagon.  Long-time and regular readers of the Musical Patriot are well aware of the reasons.

Indeed, it happens I have been won of the earliest and most consistent writers to say that Trump should and could be stopped.  The question was whether the media would allow it, given their penchant for supporting Trump's celebrity and ratings-increasing status.

Now, however, according to Ms. Unruh, the umbrella group Free the Delegates 2016 has pressed the media for fairness, apparently with some success.  If this is true, and along with increasing delegate interest, I continue to believe Trump can indeed be stopped.  It is very hopeful that the Unruh group is being led by experienced campaign workers and party officials.  (The article at the link below tells who.)
