Secret Billionaire Meeting Plots To Stop Trump

Top Republicans Plot To Stop Trump

Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute's annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.
The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he "cannot support Donald Trump." 

"A specter was haunting the World Forum--the specter of Donald Trump," Kristol wrote in an emailed report from the conference, borrowing the opening lines of the Communist Manifesto. "There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he's done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated."

"The key task now, to once again paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him," Kristol wrote. "In general, there's a little too much hand-wringing, brow-furrowing, and fatalism out there and not quite enough resolving to save the party from nominating or the country electing someone who simply shouldn't be president."
 My view:

It is insightful indeed to hear two quotations from the Communist Manifest at a Republican meeting of the ultra wealthy on how to stop the nomination of someone "who shouldn't be president".

Is that not the point of democracy?  That anyone should be able to run for president and be elected by the people?

Apparently that is not the case in the minds of this group.  It is also eye opening to see the number of Democrats invited to this Republican meeting when one reads the full article.

Perhaps the Democrats and Republicans in reality are one party and the United States is a one party state where democracy exists only ephemerally.

Any one who runs for office to stand up to this type of crooked elitist nonsense has my vote!
