Election 2024: Why Bother?

1,492 words

Election 2024? Why bother? Here is why. 2020 was the wildest election ever, a brazen turbulence of election rigging you would expect to see coming somewhere out of the third world. The aftermath was followed by a Big Brother propaganda campaign whipping up fury toward the imaginary legions of white supremacists. Now unfolding is a purge of the deposed Orange Man’s supporters. The impeachment proceedings for Chief Nazi Donald Trump are underway. Unlike Hitler the First, Hitler the Second didn’t commit suicide in his bunker/hot tub at Mar-a-Lago. AOC will likely lead the crew that will draw and quarter him live on CNN immediately upon his conviction in the Senate with Anderson Cooper providing the, uh, blow-by-blow commentary. Instead of a mock-severed head of President Trump like the one held up by comedian Kathy Griffin in 2017, the barmaid-Congresswoman from the Bronx will be hoisting high above her head the bloody real one. Sic semper tyrannis!

The impeachment is sheer revenge intended to humiliate and destroy the crude interloper of World Wide Wrestling fame who popped up and took the insiders off guard back in 2016 — on top of being very rude to them. “What an idiot!” they were howling throughout the election campaign as they outbid each other in estimates of Clinton’s coming landslide victory numbers. They mocked and ridiculed him mercilessly, until reality came crashing down on November 9th. There he was, bad mullet and all, suddenly perched at the head of the table in their Board Room tweeting away.

“Never is this going to happen again,” was the firm resolution of the ruling class mandarins. Now that, finally, he has been dispatched — impeachment redux. It didn’t work the first time when it was supposed to, but the second one still has a purpose. It sends a clear message to any irredeemable insane enough to think about it in the future. “Don’t! We will make you and your friends very sorry if you do.”

But now there is 2024 to gear up for, and to do what? First, how about those poor Republicans? I don’t mean the voters. I mean the Republican establishment big shots. These puffed-up, virtue-signaling kingpins, I think, should be practicing the soliloquy of Prince Hamlet: “To be or not to be, that is the question.” Yes, Mitch, Mitt, and Mike, that is the question, the only one you and your ilk should be pondering right this moment. Unfortunately, “not to be” is looking more and more like your only option. If there are any swords nearby, you might consider falling on them before Alejandro Mayorkas from Homeland Security stops by to confiscate them.

You can buy Greg Johnson’s Here’s the Thing here.

Well, how about those Democrats? The only question they should be pondering is: “Should we be popping the cork on a bottle of Dom Pérignon Rose Gold or Champagne Krug Clos d’Ambonnay? Tough decision for those folks gloating from the catbird seat. They’ve got the House, the Senate, and old, white, Joey Rob Biden in his regency post. With the assistance of a Ritalin pump, he’s been assigned to getting the Oval Office ship-shape for occupancy by the (sort of) black lady, who will go down as the Madam Defarge of our time. She’s impatiently waiting not just to be the glorious “first” of many things to be President. She’s positively giddy at the moment as she thinks about putting the screws to the remains of white privilege left over from the Trump era and getting Fort Leavenworth ready to welcome a fulsome harvest of white nationalists. And that will be in just her first one hundred days. There’s more for her to scratch off of her to-do list: four more Democrat Senators (from the 51st and 52nd states of DC and Puerto Rico); some more lefty judges on the Supreme Court; and tens of millions of new Democrats from the ranks of the “undocumented” impatiently awaiting amnesty and voter registration cards. The future of the Electoral College? North Dakota and Nebraska are soon to be the only “red states” left. In the words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference at this point does it make?” Indeed. Unemployed mechanics and pipeline workers? Who needs them?

Election 2024 for the Democrats? They are the party of Alfred E. Newman: “What, me worry?”

Well, not quite. The world is not yet their Nirvana, and the Democrats should be worried just a wee bit about the Republicans. Not because they pose any kind of threat to grab the reins of power from them. Just the opposite. Post-2020, they are not enough of a threat — which is a problem.

Why is that? Until Donald Trump came along four years ago, ignoring the dictum that Presidential politics is an invitation-only party, the Republicans were the loyal opposition for the Democrats. Check that. The Republicans were the controlled opposition. They were “Democrat Light”, so to speak, which is why from 1992 to 2012, they lost four of six Presidential elections. Still, no one in their company could believe how easily in 2016 The Donald rolled over Jeb, John, Marco, and the rest of the establishment stooges, one of whom was going to be taking one for the team as the sacrificial ox against Hillary. They came up with all kinds of reasons to explain it except the right one, which was: the Republican establishment cared more about being liked by Democrats and their MSM cheerleaders than their own party base. Trump came along in the 2016 primaries and hung “Democrat Light” lanyards around the necks of his Republican opponents as the Beltway pundits recoiled in horror and disbelief at this act of lese-majesty. “A choice, not an echo,” as Phyllis — may she rest in peace — put it so long ago. And now at least some of us happily remember “the rest of the story.”

Trump is gone now and the seventy-million or so Americans who voted for him are looking at the Republican establishment with eyes wide open. What they are seeing is something barren and flat out ugly: the Republican leaders aren’t loyal opposition; they’re not controlled opposition; they’re not any opposition. This is why the Democrats should worry. Because as much as they thrill to wielding power with no constraints, they know that their public relations image-making is best done by portraying themselves as virtuous defenders of the poor and oppressed against overwhelmingly powerful forces of bigotry and reaction. That was the dear departed Donald Trump, a reactionary bigot so powerful he was able to brutalize the country via Twitter until they axed his account. If Hitler the First had had Twitter, just imagine what he could have done. Voltaire is famous for saying: “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.” Allow me to propose a modernizing paraphrase: If real bigots did not exist, it would be necessary for the Democrats to invent them.

So, while Mitch and Mitt and Mike might still be deluded enough to imagine that they can rebuild and lead a serious opposition party, the Republican voters know what they are — career political hacks and life-long trimmers who’d sell out their mothers if the payoff were generous enough. Politicians with no constituents aren’t a believable controlled opposition to make look like they are not what they are — a single-party dictatorship. For a group of folks who endlessly bray about how wonderful “democracy” is, this cannot be a happy prospect for them. The Biden-Harris Presidency already bears the stench of illegitimacy.

The 2020 Presidential election has an upside for the seventy or so million Americans who cast their vote for Trump. It’s called “the truth.” And as the Good Book says: “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth. . .” Well, you know how the rest of it goes, the last word being “free.” Trump voters also understand now the truth of that maxim: “If voting was important, they wouldn’t let us do it.” Or, as Joe Stalin put it: “it’s not who gets the most votes that counts, it’s who gets to count them.” So, the Democrats will go on pretending that “democracy has prevailed,” but millions of people now can see that these emperors have no clothes. Pause and think for a moment of what a glimpse of wrinkly Joe, Nancy Hillary, and Maxine Waters, “uncarpeted,” would do to your appetite. At some point, if enough people start saying it out loud, things are going to get very interesting and unpredictable. 

Maybe even as early as 2024.

    I’d argue there was no transfer of power in 2016, that Trump was denied the surveillance powers of the state and that they were used against him relentlessly. Trump was allowed to occupy the WH because he won and because he could be used as a discreetly baited trap against us. The Dems never left power, never lost it, they’ve only considered it.

    Election 2022: Why bother?

    The “démoncrates” (deamoncrates) cheated on a large scale without any consequences. What’s to stop them doing the same over and over again. Forget about elections. Very sad but the times ahead are bleak. Those who betrayed Trump and many millions of Americans in this coup d’Etat will be the first to suffer, and like the husband cuckoled they won’t believe it when it hits them.

    Again with the inane premise that “we’ll get them in the next election”, be it 2022, 2024, whenever!

    The fundamentals:
    1. Democrats are corrupt
    2. Republican are incompetent
    3. If a rigged election works once (for either side), it will be done again

    If these three statements are arguable or incomprehensible for you, then please vote! Otherwise, why bother?

    Let’s skip 1 and 3 and focus on 2, because if you’re reading an article on the site that this was posted on, and still believe that voting (as of 11/3/20) is meaningful, then you aren’t likely to vote Democrat or third party. So now we’re all hypothetical voters for the GOP. Next question: who are YOU voting for? I don’t vote R just to say that I voted. I vote CONSERVATIVE because that’s my thing!

    As of today, 211 House and 50 Senate Rs. Name the Rs (it will be a short list) who are conservative. Name the Rs who are RINO. Name the Rs who stab conservatives in the back, and then the ones who actually enjoy doing so rather than doing it for just political gain. Name the Rs who you once trusted, only to find out that they’re unreliable when it comes time to take a stand. You see where this is going.

    As long as we have stooges and patsies willing to rally round the GOP and ready to vote, then there will continue to be a GOP that says all the right words to get your vote, which in purple and red areas may get them elected. That’s all that matters! Once elected, they have power and privilege, and you’re left with empty promises as the GOP find new ways to compromise with the corrupt to retain their seat at the table at the expense of the electorate.

    Please stop the ride… I’ve spun around on it so long that I’m all puked out! If your only answer is to vote GOP in the next election, then you’re part of the problem.

    No problem was ever solved by voting

    Voting is one front in a much wider political struggle. It doesn’t really cost you anything and sometimes the lesser of two evils does give you room to maneuver elsewhere.

    Didn’t vote this time and I feel 100% vindicated. Vote for who? What party? There’s literally nobody who represents my interests.

    Voting is done. I agree with TCinNC. If they rigged a presidential election with the whole world watching how the hell can a candidate that even likes WHITES win a small local election? We have already seen in the past how they stop republicans from winning in Minnesota and here in Florida.

    How can we fight back? As we’ve seen, they will simply rig the votes in their favor. No more transparency. If we try to discuss with the public, either the public is too brainwashed or they’ll won’t allow it. Do we actually have the freedom of speech from now on?

    Yeah, I guess the Democrats really won’t have the Republicans to kick around any more.

    So everything bad that happens going forward (which means: everything that happens) will be blamed on them. ANTIFA is already on the streets protesting the new regime. BLM is waiting for warmer weather.

    It’s a good thing. Thesis, anti-thesis, synthesis. Socioeconomic meltdown ahead. May the pain be severe enough to power a resurgent Right become the next synthesis.

    I’ve read that there is a desire among Trump voters for the creation of a Patriot Party to oppose the Republicans and Democrats. Those of us familiar with parliamentary democracy know how easy it is to marginalize someone politically by splitting the vote like this. There’s no doubt that the Republicans and Democrats would band together against such a party. Likewise does it make it a lot harder to influence politics on a large scale when you’re not part of a larger infrastructure like the Republicans.

    But on the other hand, what use is the Republican infrastructure when half of it exists solely to hamstring populists and cuck out to the Dems? It also can’t hurt to create a large platform for the development and promotion of patriotic nationalist ideals that are squarely opposed to those of the GOP, to politically hone the populist movement. While ostracized, such a party could become a valuable echo chamber and crucible for dissident rightist ideas. While I’m sure it would take on the shape of a Bannonite party with a large influx of Fuentesian youth and ZOG puppets, at least it would be a step away from the Stooge Right and towards an unabashedly populist Nationalist Right. I believe such a Patriot Party would be a good way to finally, as they say, unite the right, and it would open the door to the creation of other, even more redpilled parties. While this may seem like a balkanization of the right, there’s no doubt that one of these parties will emerge the largest, and I highly doubt that it will be the Republican Party in the long run.
