    Default Trump's new 'Patriot Party' signals the death knell of the GOP, permanent Dem rule

    Ex-President Donald Trump to launch a new political party after leaving office.

    Sources told The Wall Street Journal he would like to call it the "Patriot Party."

    The report comes after Sen. Mitch McConnell blamed Trump for the Capitol riot.



    can't win shit when your party constitutes a mere 30% of the electorate, RINOs will flock to the Democratic Party in droves, reject authoritarianism

    thanks to the Capitol insurrection 2022 will be hell for GOP incumbents, Dems will add considerably to their existing majority

    b'bye assholes, go join the Whigs in ignominy

    Trump can lead his Patriot Party from prison.

    A home for the MAGA militia

    Trump would only do it if there was a way for him to make money off it

    Except that's not what the article you cited says.

    "Trump is said to be considering"...Sources told The Wall Street Journal..."

    Disagreed for two main reasons:

    1. It puts all of the shithouse crazy Trumpians under one roof. Easier to find them, isolate them and, if necessary, send them to prison.

    2. It cleans the Republican Party of the nuttiness plaguing it for the past 25+ years. Yes, the Republican party will be smaller, but saner. I would rejoin such a party and I expect many right-leaning Independents would do the same.

    This is good news.

    This will be a clear choice for many well-intentioned Good Samaritan Conservatives to wipe their slate clean and start something fresh.

    "Everybody knows, if you don't carry out the garbage- YOUR HOUSE IS ONLY GOING TO STINK LIKE GARBAGE UNTIL YOU DO"! [Geeko Sportivo]

    Because there has to be a line in the sand regarding your personal commitment to Morality, Ethics, Common Sense, Common Good, Integrity, Right From Wrong, Truth, Reality, Democracy, and RESPECT FOR LAW AND ORDER- or you have no fabric to build a Political Party on.

    Being patriotic to Donald Trump only says you possess none of these quality attributes.

    THE PATRIOT PARTY IS A PARTY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ONLY PATRIOTIC TO DONALD TRUMP- FUCK EVERYTHING ELSE!

    Reminds me of the slogan I often see here in the forum from the TRUMPTARDS........."TRUMP! BECAUSE FUCK YOU!"

    I would just like to ask, "HOWS THAT SLOGAN WORKING OUT FOR YOU NOW WHILE WATCHING TRUMP FLY OFF INTO REALITY AGAIN?"

    Me thinks your notion of the GOP's demise is premature.

    Oh sure the GOP has a huge problem in being a monolithic political party and Trump and his supporters has created a massive crack within it but I wouldn't classify them as dead yet.

    Having said that if happens that you turn out to be right then it is a sad, sad, sad day for America and does not bode well for our future. Trump has exploited a serious weakness within the GOP...a lack of a diversity of ideas and the crack he has created will either make that worse or the GOP will adjust and adapt and walk away from its conservative only ideology and become tolerant to those with different ideas. If the former happens then the whole country is in trouble as we need a healthy Republican party with a diversity of ideas. If the later happens then Trumps efforts to create a new party will simply be in vain.

    I definitely agree we need a two party system for a host of reasons, even though the last 5 GOP presidents have been a disgrace, in my opinion

    I'm old enough to remember when the GOP was at least a respectable party, not overrun by unabashed authoritarian useless fucks

    Having been a card carrying dues paying member of the Republican Party in the past I think part of what we have witnessed is the ultimate demise of the Southern Strategy. If so in the short term that's not going to be good for the GOP but in the long run it will be and that will be good for our nation.

    As to the past 6 GOP Presidents I only feel that two of them were a disgrace. Trump and Nixon. Granted W proved astoundingly inept but that in and of itself is not disgraceful nor to I feel that Bush 1, Reagan or Ford were a disgrace though I think it accurate to conclude that Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Bush 1 could not possible win the GOP nomination today as they would be viewed as too liberal.

    Now that's funny as hell to think about when it comes to Reagan but by todays standards Reagan would be considered far to liberal.

    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.

    The White House declined to comment.


    It’s unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources. The president has a large base of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics prior to Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign.

    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

    After closure of the famed 'Trump University', it is only logical to provide another opportunity for those left behind to 'seize Power' through a 'Trump Political Party'. Patriot Party ...PERFECT!
