When the Republican Party delegates of Colorado chose Curz they "split the beans", and showed that Ted Curz is the man of the establishment. Ted curz will work for the people who run Washington, and for the rich, otherwise they would never have chosen Curz, they know that Trump will not work for the establishment. What this means is that you can not believe a word this Curz says. Ted Curz is the choice of the Republican Party, and Hillary is the Choice of the Democratic Party, and if both are nominated, the establishment wins.

The Establishment has already won, I will wait for that to sink in.

If Curz and Cilonton are candidates of the establishment that split the beans, and since Turmp is a con man and snake oil salesman, that leaves Sadners as the only candidate to give the rest of the beans to.

This is what cracks me up about Trump-tards. A man that praised, donated money and supported establishment candidates and has even had a couple establishment politicians show up to his wedding is somehow the outsider or non-establishment canddate. But the guy whom Trump has said ‘nasty guy’ Ted Cruz: ‘You have to make deals. You have to get along’ is somehow the establishment candidate.Yep the guy who said he will make deal with the establishment is somehow anti-establishment and the guy whom Trump accusing of not making deals with the establishment is somehow the establishment. Whats next is day is night and night is day?

Sanders will want your beans, and my beans and any beans we may get or even think about getting. Good Grief we are so Scr*wed this election, I suppose we get what we deserve, still trying to figure out what I did that was so bad.

Saying Ted "Curz" is the establishment candidate because the establishment(such as it is, and it is a woefully overused term, as your post is a great example of) isn't insane enough to go with the other guy is a great example of really ****ty logic.

You mean to say we humans are in charge of our own destiny, and having a con man, a socialist, a theocrat, and Hillary Clinton as our only choices is on us, and not the result of the wrath of god?

Well, I suppose we'd best start planning for 2020 right now then.

Nope, they are the result of our own Stupidity. Don't blame God for the actions of humans, HE knows better than to get involved in our silly games.

You assume there will be a 2020 to plan for? I hope you are right.

I'm pretty sure there will be an election around that time. I'm not sure that the choices will be any better then. It depends on whether we're still ready to listen to con men I suppose.

What would change that would stop conmen from running, heck if anything The Donald has opened the door to ever further and more extreme candidates to come. Read you history, specifically Rome, the decline was marked by such leaders emerging. All great Nations fall sooner or later, we are living and observing history in action.

Not to mention the fact that simply because he was winning the delegates it doesn't mean the "establishment", as it's so often used, is responsible. It was largely his PAC and campaign volunteers/employees that did most of the ground work for him in Colorado, not the GOP itself.

I don't think we can keep conmen from running. The best we can do is to learn from the mistake that was Trump and not repeat it.

Maybe if we do elect Trump, the Trumpeteers will be ready to admit they were wrong by 2020 and not be quite so ready to purchase snake oil. Is that expecting too much from the electorate?

Of course it is.

The reason they got into a position of choosing between Cruz and Trump is a brazen refusal to learn.

That is a good point, even if a bit pessimistic. I believe it was Mark Twain who observed that it's a lot easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they've been fooled.
