If you hadn't heard, Donald Trump was mad about the way that things went in Colorado a few weeks ago. Trump made huge waves in the Republican political sphere when he called out the convention system that Colorado used to choose who would receive its share of the Republican delegates.

"It’s a disgrace for the party and Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself," Trump said.

He went on to say that the way that Colorado currently assigns its delegates is "a very unjust way of doing things." Is Trump right? Is it an unjust system?

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus countered Trump's inflammatory comments with a simple tweet.

"Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It's the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break."

Priebus said that Trump's campaign knew full well what was happening the day of Colorado's conventions and that it was up to the Trump campaign to figure out how to best approach those conventions and attempt to get their votes.

And that's probably true. It's extremely unlikely that Trump didn't know about the Colorado process before he was suddenly snubbed in a state where he had overwhelming support.

But does that mean that the Colorado convention system is a just way of doing things?

In that case, Trump may be on to something. Having a pre-selected group of people to cast the votes and choose the party's candidate seems like a departure from the American democracy that we know and cherish.

If we want to involve the masses and really make this country united, we need to all have the ability to cast our own votes and see those votes count. That's part of what is making Trump's campaign so successful.

He's promising change and it appears that he can deliver. With the months counting down before the election, it's getting close to the time when we will see if he is able to deliver or not.
