Save Our Party

We, the Delegates for the 2016 Republican National Convention, are willing to take a stand and fight for our party.

We believe-

First, that our country cannot endure another member of the Supreme Court not committed to the intent of our Constitution;

Second, that our time has come to take a stand and renew the freedoms given to us by God and our Constitution;

Third, that our likely nominee has compromised himself so much due to poor campaign practice that alternative action must be debated;

Therefore, we will-

Organize separately as delegates to the 2016 Republican convention at an undisclosed location until such a time as we can not be held to a vote for any particular candidate;

Work together to agree upon an acceptable nominee that will, above all else, nominate a member of the Supreme Court that will serve in the spirit of our founding documents;

Nominate a Republican candidate that will serve as a caretaker of our Constitution and our rule of law for a period of 4 years;

We, as Delegates, are the last line of defense, and we will act within our authority to live up to that responsibility.

Ed. note.  The concern over nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court is a not uncommon refrain.  For example, several people mentioned that when I attended the VA GOP 8th CD Convention on May 7 (+).  The day after the Washington Post story ran, Trump released a list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees.
