Is It A Reality Or A Pipe Dream? Stephen Bannon And Warroom Co-Hosts And Guests Are Opposed To A Third (Patriot) Party; They Want Grass Roots To Take Over The GOP
By Dave Levine
I watched Stephen Bannon on his Warroom podcast this morning, January 23rd. He said he’s opposed to a Patriot third party (There are reports that Trump is considering forming his own party). Instead, Bannon said, he wants “the grass roots to take over the GOP”, something that has never happened before and something that many believe will never happen.
It’s a subject that’s been hotly debated since Ross Perot’s Reform Party supposedly cost Pappa Bush reelection in 1992 when Bill Clinton came onto the national scene. If you believe what’s been written about that Election, you would come away believing that Perot split the GOP vote, taking some of it and giving The White House to President Clinton. However, one thing they WON’T tell you: Republican voters who voted for Perot instead of Bush (who had fainted and vomited in front of Japan’s Prime Minister and who had lied to Americans in his famous “Read my lips!” promise) were never going to vote for Bush! In their minds, they had already left the Republican Party. If Perot had never run, millions of angry Republican voters would have stayed home.
Now it’s 2021. RINOs like McConnell, McCarthy, Graham and the 10 House RINOs who voted with Pelosi to Impeach Trump for a second time (while on his way out of office) are the ones running the GOP, not Trump. Trump is the leader of the MAGA movement, of the Deplorables. I believe that Trump loyalists will not succeed in taking control of the GOP. The reason? Money. The RINOs own the corporations. They’re the gazillionaires and there are many of them. They are the Chamber of Commerce. There is only one Trump. Moreover, there are only a handful of Conservatives in the U.S. Senate and perhaps 30 in the House.
I’m not going to say that “It’s impossible for grass roots to take over the GOP!” I just think it’s very unlikely.
