GOP loyalty oath proposal in Virginia may signal trouble for Donald Trump – The Washington Post

RICHMOND — The Virginia Republican Party is considering requiring a loyalty oath from presidential primary contenders — a move widely considered an early sign of GOP skittishness about Donald Trump’s campaign.

State party officials are debating whether to require candidates to pledge their support to the eventual nominee and promise not to run as a third-party candidate — as Trump has hinted he might do.

The development could be an early sign of trouble for Trump, particularly if other state parties consider similar ideas. But it also is being debated cautiously by Republicans who worry that it could backfire and breed resentment among activists who are suspicious of attempts by the GOP establishment to control the party.

The Republican Party is run by establishment retreads who don’t want someone ruining their boondoggle. The Republican Party has no value whatsoever except as a collection of fax machines and Rolodexes and phone banks.

The Republican Party deserves a hostile takeover. If it doesn’t comply, break it up into its constituent pieces and sell them off, figuratively speaking.

One’s allegiance around here should be to the country, not to a bunch of has-beens who didn’t get the memo that they no longer run the Republican Party.
