GOP Delegates Organize Effort to Adopt Conscience Clause at Convention

The Washington Post  is reporting that a group of Republicans is organizing to free, or unbind, delegates to the Cleveland convention so they may vote their conscience.  According to the news report whose hyper-link is below GOP'ers continue to be appalled by Trump verbal antics, the latest being his self-aggrandizing comments following the tragic shootings of last week-end in Orlando.

As I have maintained here for weeks the opposition to Trump in the GOP is real.  Now the opposition appears to be somewhat growing again, and getting organized.  The current approach, which is not brand-new, would allow delegates to vote for whichever candidate they thought could best lead the party in this fall's election.

Please do ignore the editorial comments in this report which declare stopping Trump to be "nearly impossible to pull off at this point."  We are in new territory and this is a creative process.  Almost no one thought going into the 1860 Republican convention that Lincoln would be the nominee.  The media should stop treating the process as if it were some kind of machine -- a body without a head -- which cannot be turned off its course.  That's not the way reality works, in spite of our highly technological society.  

GOP Delegates Seek to Do the Right Thing
