If he does, I will be among its first members.
I no longer care about the argument about siphoning votes from the establishment Republicans and thus allowing the Dems to win everything.
Frankly, the Democrats have perfected stealing elections, so Republicans are going to have a very hard time going forward anyway. Does anyone in their right mind think there will be another Bush-like Republican President in the White House again?
For decades we have been told we must stick with the Republicans—Republicans like Senator Mitch McConnell and my own Governor and Never-Trumper Larry Hogan (who was the chairman of the National Governors Association)?
We have been told until I want to throw up to stick with the Rs and change the party from within.
I want to work within a party I feel passionate about.
So I am definitely cheering for the creation of a Patriot Party (or whatever it might be called).
Not that I needed to hear McConnell’s speech to make up my mind, but it surely was the last straw.
Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the mob was fed lies and “provoked” by President Trump and other people in a blistering speech on the Senate floor.
Here is the Wall Street Journal on the possibility of a new party:
Trump Has Discussed Starting a New Political Party
President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter, an effort to exert continued influence after he leaves the White House.
Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the “Patriot Party,” the people said.
Mr. Trump has feuded in recent days with several Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), who on Tuesday said Mr. Trump deserved blame for provoking the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Polls show Mr. Trump retains strong support among rank-and-file GOP voters.
Third parties have typically failed to draw enough support to play a major role in national elections. Any effort to start a new party would likely face intense opposition from Republican party officials, who would chafe at the thought of Mr. Trump peeling off support from GOP candidates. [That is what they always say to keep us in line.—ed]
“Chafe!” They would be raging because frankly the Trump base (which he expanded!) is the base of the Republican Party.
A Trump-led party will kill the Republican Party and I am ready for that! Are you?
Here is the Leftwing HuffPo on the subject:
Trump Reportedly Considers Exacting Revenge On Republicans By Forming His Own Party
And, they are so happy to quote Republican Neocon Bill Kristol on Twitter:
“The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party.’”
Truly the last refuge of the scoundrel. https://t.co/4h70MqwlHg

Fight Back! And have fun!
The next time you get a fund raising letter from the RNC, or any Republican fundraising campaign for a candidate who turned on us, use the prepaid envelope and drop in one of these.
But, don’t ask to be removed from their list, just do it every time they send you an appeal for money. Add a note if you feel inspired.
