All should watch the video titled, “The Plot To Steal America.”
I have no disagreement with the narrative, but I am left wondering what can be done short of an outright civil war with Americans killing each other over a stolen election and a descent into Socialism, and eventually Communism.
The problem as I see it lies in two places:
1. The current Republican Party and its leadership; and
2. The continued funding of a corrupt system that gives us the results that we are now wrestling with post-election.
On the matter of political party and actions that might be taken going forward.
Our President, Donald J. Trump, has started a movement in the United States that has not been seen since the days of the American Revolution. The times are different, the social fabric of the country is significantly changed from our 1776 beginnings, and the issues differ.
Perhaps it is time to divest from the political party that seems to not have the will to fight on behalf of the people who have supported them since its creation as the modern Republican Party. The creation of a new party (perhaps the “MAGA Party”) is what is needed. I am not proposing a third party that ultimately dilutes its votes and is never able to win an election.
I am proposing dissolving of the Republican Party – the Party of White Gloves and Party Manners – to be replaced by a political party that will have the will and the stamina to stand up to the Democrat Party, look them in the eye and say: No More cheating, No More corruption, No More intimidation, No More attacking religion, No More “wokeness” and No More ignoring the Constitution and the history of America.
If anyone can do this it is President Trump, and over 70 million people will support him. It will not be easy. Not only will we need to change the party at the Federal level, converting selected politicians to the new party, but at the State level as well. State legislatures will have to agree that the Republican Party is defunct and that the “MAGA Party” is the way forward for our country.
In the words of Thomas Paine,
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”Thomas Paine, The Crisis No. I (written 19 December 1776, published 23 December 1776)
Paine goes on to tell us that American colonists do not lack force but “a proper application of that force,” and so it is today; the American people need to understand that they are a force and how to now properly apply that force. I do not believe that such will happen by the guidance of a Mitch McConnell or a Ben Sasse or a Mitt Romney. This will have to come from a new political party with gumption, understanding, and application of the force generated by the people of this country.
There is a saying often used in the military – “Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way” – it is time for the Republican Party to get out of the way.
So, if the analysis tells us that the American people are a force and that force needs to be properly applied, how do we go about making an application of force that brings corrupt government to heal? I believe that this can be done the way all things in government are done: through an agreement with the American people that they will exercise their will through the government’s purse strings.
Simply stated, those who genuinely believe the words of the Declaration of Independence and the guiding structure of the Constitution must agree not to pay taxes to the government until corrupt government is rooted out and the corrupt politicians along with it.
I understand that this is a truly radical notion. I also understand that this cannot be the response of only a few patriots; this needs to be the actions of over 70 million Americans in unison and without fear of retribution by the government, the very same government that the people control. We can only imagine the impact on the government if on April 15th it was announced that 70 million Americans will not be filing their taxes, in protest of the corrupt management and waste of the taxpayer’s money. Street protests with American flags and Trump flags are a great expression of support, but they could never have the impact felt in Washington, D.C. if 70 million American in unison said, “Stop the Steal, Stop the foreign entanglements, Stop the stealing, and Stop ignoring the will of the people.”
Can this happen? I believe that it can.
Will it be easy? No, it will not, but it must start with the launching of a new political party with leadership and membership that will do what is required to right this ship.
Should this happen? Absolutely!
Will it happen? Only time will tell us.
Until it happens we must continue the Resistance. We have been given the template for Resistance; use it wherever it can be applied. The future of the Republic depends on it.
