The Republican Party leaders does not represent the views of its members. They are slightly more “conservative” than the Globalist Democrats and have the same elitist attitudes. They could care less about you and I, they’ll just do whatever they can to get and stay in power.
We thought that we had a chance to drain the swamp when Donald Trump came into office in 2016, but that didn’t pan out. The Establishment RINOs are still running the party and are going back to business-as-usual politics… saying one thing and doing another. They are actively working against the America First Agenda that President Trump laid out.
This has led to many Conservatives to discuss how we move forward as a movement. On one hand, we can take the Tea Party approach and create a movement within the GOP in an attempt to reform the party and get the right people in leadership. On the other hand, there’s a growing sentiment that the Republican Party us unreformable and it’s time to simply break away to start a Third Party, such as the Patriot Party.
Chase Geiser, host of One American Podcast, has an interesting perspective on this. During this episode of Freedom One-On-One, he shared that to reform the GOP, we don’t have to launch a nationwide Third Party. What if we focused on a single state, such as Texas. He argues that this would not be for the purposes of replacing the Republicans, but should be used as a negotiating tactic.
Think about it: The Republican leadership doesn’t care what us principles conservatives have to say because they know that, in the end, they’ll still get our vote. They take us for granted and our voice is no longer heard. But what if we had a credible threat of walking away, which would ensure that they lose to the Democrats? Only then will they listen. Essentially, we’d be calling their bluff.
Is this the solution to saving the Republican Party and to get our voice heard by the GOP leadership? It’s entirely possible. One of the principles of Donald Trump’s Art of the Deal is that you always have to be willing to walk away from a bad deal. Maybe that’s why we’ve been losing for so long… we’ve never been willing to walk away.
