On Saturday my favorite evil thinker of the Dissident Right, ZMan said the best path forward is to stop voting for the Republicans. After hearing that several Republican senators including Little Marco Rubio were already negotiating with the Democrat amnesty crew it was mighty tempting to agree with him. After all, when you subtract Mitt Romney and what’s her name in Alaska and what’s her name in Maine it’s not like we have this unbreakable lock on the Senate anyway. What if the Democrats took the two seats in Georgia and Biden is given the White House? Would that be the end of the world?
Let’s talk about that. If the Democrats have the Presidency, the Senate and the House I assume they will go ahead and go the full nuclear option by eliminating the filibuster altogether and go for a wholesale change in the way things are done. There would be a very strong possibility that they would pass legislation to add seats to the Supreme Court to allow for all the things they’ve always wanted. They would effectively nullify the first and second amendments. Hate speech would be found to be unprotected and they would define hate speech as needed. The right to bear arms would be interpreted to mean the National Guard. Freedom of religion would be hand waved out of existence and we would be in a position where saying anything the Democrats didn’t like would be enough to get you fired from your job and dropped by your bank and credit card company. As bad as things are now, that would be a quantum leap in oppression.
Would we gain anything by this turn of events? The theory that the accelerationists hold is that letting things slip into outright despotism will raise the political temperature so high that it will cause an explosion among the freedom loving Americans and they will rise up in open violent insurrection.
They could be right. And in fact, maybe we’ll get to find out regardless of whether the Right votes for the senate seats in Georgia. After all, the Dems stole the election in Georgia last month. What’s to stop them from stealing these also? If they do, we’re probably going to find out soon enough what it’s like to live as slaves.
As far as what I think is the best political option we have going forward, I think it’s necessary to start a new party. Even if President Trump prevails and is President for another four years, we have to start taking control of our government away from the UniParty that currently controls it. Some leader with a lot of clout and a lot of money needs to build an organization that espouses the agenda of the Right. There has recently been talk about President Trump and his friends leading an organization that does just this. There’s also talk about him starting or joining a right-wing media company that will provide us with a source for news and information that isn’t fake. I think both of these things are good ideas. Right now, President Trump is the only man in America with the stature and resources to put something this ambitious together.
My vision for how this political party would work, is for it to clearly define the platform that the American Right wants and then find candidates that can compete in the Republican primaries of any Republican politician who is obviously a progressive. And if our candidate wins, he can become the beginning of the reformed Republican party. And if he loses then we have our candidate run as a third-party candidate and act as a spoiler. Knocking out the RINOs will be a consolation prize if we can’t win the Republican nomination. Think of how much fun it would be to primary Rubio or Romney. Imagine Romney trying to explain how he is severely conservative when an actual conservative is running. And with these candidates being endorsed by President Trump they will have an enormous advantage over the RINOs in most states. This party can also build a rapport with the Republicans who are conservatives. It can help influence policy at all levels of the political leadership because it will have popular support. And it can call out even conservative Republicans if they falter.
If you look at how often the Republican establishment has supported politicians who don’t even pretend to believe in what we believe in you’ll realize that they’re not much better than the Democrats. Romney is only the most egregious example. There are plenty of other Senators and Congressmen who sell their vote to the highest bidder and have no interest in fixing this country. We need a new party and if we start this way, we’ll start to get one. Eventually maybe we can co-opt the Republican party or possibly we’ll just replace it with our own piece by piece. Either way we will begin taking back the country with our own people. And this new party will also allow us to negotiate with the Republican state politicians and influence their agendas too. It could be the strongest special interest group lobbying these state governments because it will be representing tens of millions of Americans and their interests.
For those who say third parties never win I say when was the last time a mainstream Republican ever won anything for us? The last time we elected a mainstream Republican to the presidency he gave us two wars and John Roberts as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. We either try to get our own people in Washington or we abandon any hope of taking our country back peacefully. If President Trump wants to build a party that represents us then I say give him the chance. If that doesn’t work, I think I’ll have to change my mind and agree with the dissident right.
