Posted on 01/19/2021 9:18:06 PM PST by familyop
President Donald Trump has discussed forming a new political party in recent days, hoping to continue his influence after leaving the White House, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday night...he said he would want to call such a party the Patriot Party, the sources told the paper. The president reportedly discussed the idea with several aides and others last week.

Political opponents would fear that name more than any other, though, and would certainly jump in to say that it won’t work and advise more watered down names.
stupid move. Far too many openings for RINO/CINO/DeepSwampers to enter.
Needs to be a conservative party, with a straightforward 30 point conservative self-litmus test.
If you find yourself arguing against a 9point prolifer but they post like a 3 point abortionist, that’s when you point it out to the mods and they get rid of the RINO/CINO.
I do like the name ‘Patriot’ because it applies to people, the members of the party, as opposed to an abstract idea like freedom. I am fine with any name Trump comes up with as long as we keep GOPe scums out.
If President Trump does this my entire family would join that party the moment it is formally announced.
He would have no shortage of people wanting to run for local, state and federal office.
Hell, I’d love to bash some heads (metaphorically speaking) on stage here in NYC.
Here’s the thing, the Republican party was based on two ideas:
1. Abolish slavery.
2. Abolish Mormon polygamy.
Those two things are gone.
If he does created a patriot party, there needs to be one objective:
1. Oppose all political and cultural Marxism.
Every issue of the left can be boiled down to political or cultural Marxism. Most Americans cringe when they hear Marxism.
Yup! I’m in!
Great name for the Trumpsters!
The goal of the Patriot Party must be the destruction of the Uniparty. Anything less is not worth it.
This is potentially our greatest conflict since the Civil War. The Left is victorious and had taken over every institutions in the U.S. We don’t have much left at this point. 75 million Patriots with guns. We only have a few politicians standing up for us. They took out Donald Trump. So they think they can subdue us.
Third parties never do well. I see no reason why a Patriot Party would be an exception, although it might work for a presidential candidate. Perot did okay and probably would have done better if he wasn’t such a flake.
All politics has gotten too corrupt. They play us like a cheap fiddle. Take a different tack.
The Patriot party would not serve as a third party. Its formation would mean the end of the Republican party. I wouldn’t shed a tear, their hands are in the same wallets as the left....they can go straight to he**
He’s president still.
He needs to realize that, If he doesn’t, and act on it.
This talk of new party is good.
Basically Everything Biden and illegitimate congress do needs to be approved by us, legitimate decisions included.
Loudly, overtly. With a mechanism to show support and agreement when it is a legitimate action.
Essentially a shadow government or government in exile - within our own country.
We need to create a mechanism to withhold our taxes to starve the swamp and only release funds directly to the contractors or specific payroll office for legitimate uses.
We need to build a network infrastructure and banks and a legal defense network. .
This is not a one day one week one month one year thing.
It will take time and a concerted effort. Trump needs to be involved but they are seeking to imprison him like a banana republic.

>So they think they can subdue us.
If it ever comes to such, 95% of the guns vs 5% and 95% of the land vs 5% is going to be harsh.
Just cut everything off from the cities. All you need is about 10 large trucks and debris on several highways into the cities at choke points. Lock them off and let them figure it out.
“according to people familiar with the matter”
The same words in every article about trump that turned out to be untrue.
Until I hear from trump himself, Im labeling this one “fake news”
Do you think RINOs consider themselves patriots? How about Dems? Of COURSE they do.
So we need the definition to self - select people who do NOT consider themselves whatever bullshit has been concocted.
That is some form of conservative populist party. They do NOT consider themselves conservative populists. They will draw the line themselves.
