“[I]n the federal republic of the United States… all authority in it will be derived from and dependent on the society, the society itself will be broken into so many parts, interests, and classes of citizens, that the rights of individuals, or of the minority, will be in little danger from interested combinations of the majority.” – James Madison, Federalist 51
Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday that a “big protest march” was going to take place in Colorado on Friday afternoon. Instead of taking responsibility for a clear lack of interest in understanding the rules in the respective states surrounding delegates, Trump would evidently prefer to blame GOP leadership in Colorado for “stealing” that to which he is “entitled;” i.e., the presidential nomination.
Just like the #BlackLivesMatter movement is based on the false premise that police officers are deliberately slaughtering black people; Trump’s polarizing effort is based on the false premise that the Colorado Republican party somehow “rigged” the delegates so that Trump was squeezed out.
