Longer term, there must be a broad “conversation” about the direction of the conservative movement and the Republican party. More from me in @thedispatch https://t.co/CfWxfKVSuI pic.twitter.com/jQCQ545RCb— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) November 30, 2020
We’ve reached a dead end.
This is the consensus in our corner of the internet.
I’ve been active in politics for twenty years now. I have participated in five presidential elections. In 2000 and 2004, I voted for Al Gore and John Kerry out of sheer hatred of George W. Bush. In 2008 and 2012, I voted for Ron Paul in the Republican primary and for the Constitution Party in the general election. In the 2016 election, I voted for Donald Trump. In the 2020 election, I stayed home.
From my perspective, I have lived through two Republican presidencies both of which were failures. The George W. Bush presidency was profoundly alienating. The Donald Trump presidency was a bitter disappointment that inflicted tremendous damage on us without many benefits. I have no regrets about missing out on the John McCain or the Mitt Romney presidency. I’m not a conservative Republican. I’ve always been a more moderate populist and nationalist Independent swing voter.
The primary problem is the Business Conservatives, Core Conservatives or Free Marketeers who control the GOP. These people set the agenda, strategy, messaging and policy agenda of the Republican Party. They dominate and define the American Right and we have not had any success in changing it. They are out of sync with our values, beliefs and interests and even more out of touch with the public in general on a host of issues. We can continue to vote for the GOP, but it effectively means empowering people who care about free-market capitalism and Israel and really not much about anything else.
What’s the alternative to voting for the GOP?
- Blackpilling on mainstream politics. Focusing on other things.
- Maybe organizing an outside pressure group or lobby.
- Organizing a third party or voting for a third party.
- Going back to the Democrats and offsetting the damage that the Far Left can do by reinforcing the moderate wing.
There are people who disillusioned with the GOP and who do not believe it is capable of being reformed who are currently going in all of these directions.
In my own case, I have become more introspective. The American Right is defined by free-market capitalism. The American Left is defined by social liberalism. I don’t fit into either camp. I’ve never fit into either camp because my views are moderate, populist and centrist. I’m an ethnocentric White voter who wants a smart, competent government who is a social conservative and economic populist.
White populism, identifying as a moderate and a centrist, moving on from the Right and working on finishing my book is the direction that I am going in at the moment. In this episode of Illusion Radio, I talk to Doc and his lovely life and their Serbian friend Eugene about the National Justice Party and those of us who are moving not so much to the Left, but who are now identifying with the Center.
