Paul's Passing Thoughts

The Stolen Election: Reason For Optimism is Yet a Reality

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on January 21, 2021

Clearly, the election was stolen, and both parties are totally ok with that. Yes, indeed, it could spell the end of America as we know it, but that is not certain and probably unlikely. I continue to be amazed at the genius of America’s founders. No matter what happens, it would seem they saw it coming, and a stolen election by a one-party system posing as two is no exception.

The key is the balance of powers and the separation of powers. For example, it is unlikely that all states or counties within states would go along with gun confiscation. Some counties have declared themselves, by law, sanctuaries for 2nd Amendment rights.

A good person can have a slow progression of cancer. If cancer is not diagnosed and treated, it will eventually kill the victim. Donald Trump exposed the cancer. The next four years could be the treatment, and America could end up being better than ever. This is not wishful thinking; it’s reality, and likely.

Regarding the strategy of Donald Trump’s populist movement going forward, the relevant question is evident: should he start a third party or continue to reform the Republican party?

First, due to the voter fraud issue, Trump’s endgame may not be the White House. He may conclude that widely accepted voter fraud will make that improbable for him. His focus may be the balance of power in the House and Senate. However, a third party with the following Trump has could change what the swing states are on the electoral map to states that enforce fair elections. If Trump maintains a following of 70 million-plus, that makes his options significant.

Many political pundits, such as Jesse Watters, do not take a third party run seriously, but no third party has ever mustered the massive support that Trump has. And, again, splitting the electoral vote three ways could make the five corrupt swing states meaningless table scrapes to be fought over by the Democrat and Republican dogs.

All in all, Trump has significant options open to him. And if not him, it’s a movement that will produce another outsider who has a model to follow and lessons learned. A third party would transfer the power of the movement’s ideas from an individual to a party.

We would do well to remember how a third party can shift the balance of power; viz, Ross Perot. Clearly, his limited popularity handed the Presidency to Bill Clinton in the 1992 election. He garnered 20 million votes in 92 and almost 9% of the vote in 1996. Nine points is a bunch.

However, Trump could reform the Republican party; perhaps that’s what his foes fear most. He might take some time off to rest, get involved in primarying his political enemies in the Republican party for the next two years, and then run for 2024 in the two years after that. It was announced yesterday, already, that Liz Cheney is being primaried. She is far from being the last. But, that doesn’t deal with the voter fraud issue.

And, is the laugh factor about a third party run for Trump more or less than him running for president, to begin with? Remember this: George Wallace won five states as a third-party candidate in 1968 and Theodore Roosevelt won 88 electoral votes (and 30% of the popular vote) as a third-party candidate in 1912.

There is a first time in history for everything, and a third party’s time may be upon us. Of course, political pundits will reject this idea out of hand as if they have been right about anything in the past eight years.

What will be Trump’s strategy if he survives an onslaught to prevent him from running in 2024 (which is likely)? We will have to wait and see, but America’s slow death was a given until Trump came along and a bright future for America is well within the realm of reality.

    With 75 million plus supporters of the Patriot Party, the remaining Republican voters will have to decide whether they want ot vote “patriot” or “democrat.” Mitch McConnell and other “Rinos ” need to accept the fact they that they blew it when they back stabbed the “golden goose,” Trump. Without Trump, they have no party, despite the donors. Donors will go to where the will people go.

    The great shift is imminent and I think a lot of anti-institutional charismatic prophets are legit based on their track reccord and the spiritual agreement when praying.
    In this case the destiny of America is about to be realized and the truth about the election as well as many other truths will soon be revealed to everyone.

    I’m usually a cautious person but I’m 100% sure of this.
    God is appropriating the great reset.

    Once upon a time, a new third party replaced a party. It started in Ripon Wisconsin. They were called the Whig party with such luminaries as Henry Clay, 2 presidents, William Henry Harrison, Millard Fillmore, etc. Republicans replaced them and won the election with Abraham Lincoln.
