On a national level, the conservative base must be built from the House

Freedom Caucus

2017 is going to mark several “beginnings” for conservatives. Establishment Republicans will try to push their reset button after trouncing conservatives and getting partially trounced by Democrats. Conservative Republicans will begin to rebuild their momentum after hitting the Establishment roadblock that halted many Tea Party candidates and their agendas. Libertarians will try to rebuild after failing miserably in the year that gave them the best shot of hitting the debate floor and making an impact in national elections. Smaller conservative parties like the Constitution Party will begin their rebranding after failing to be a blip on the radar again.

Another classification of beginnings will also launch. I’ve heard from at least a dozen different attempts at forming new parties. Some, such as Rick Wilson’s crew, will attempt to build new moderate and pragmatic version of the GOP that can prepare candidates in the vein of Jeb Bush, John McCain, and Marco Rubio. Their main goal is to bring down the scourge of the alt-right that has infiltrated the Republican Party. Others, such as our conservative party, will attempt to work from the true right to bring Constitutional conservatism roaring back to national prominence, It’s this particular new beginning that I want to focus on here.

Our plans are to launch after this election and prepare candidates from the ground up. We want city council members. We want mayors. We want school board members. We want leaders at the local level who can help to build coalitions of conservatives among the base in preparation for bigger things to come. It must be a rapid ascension; regardless of who wins this Presidential election, we intend to be a force when the next Presidential election rolls around. To do this, we have to build the base and expand to state and national races. The only realistic way to make an impact nationally is to focus first on the House of Representatives.

This is more than just for the sake of party prudence. It’s the House that has the highest concentration of conservatives through the Freedom Caucus and other groups that are able to influence the direction. This needs to grow. Over time, it needs to embrace our voters as their base. Today, this seems like a huge challenge, but the pace at which we’re growing is nothing short of spectacular. We’re picking up thousands of handraisers per week without having officially launched. We don’t even have our official name chosen yet. This preliminary momentum is exponentially higher than we projected when we started the project in August. By comparison, some of the other “parties” that we’ve been monitoring have failed to pick up a fraction of our size and momentum.

What does this tell us? We’re on the right track. Our focus on the core principles of life, freedom, and smaller federal government fill a need that’s currently not being met by the GOP, Libertarians, or any of the smaller parties. It’s not about policies; every variation of a conservative party has the same basic focus points. The difference is that we’re approaching this with a plan of action and a message of hope tempered by reality.

The House of Representatives is the only part of the federal government that can rapidly shift. With the entire body elected every two years, it’s conceivable to put forth winners in 2018 and grab GOP defectors before 2020. The conservative wing of the House has great people. Many of them may be willing to switch to our party once it’s clear that we have enough voters behind us. This is why organizing it all is so imperative. This is why we’re starting now.

There’s so much more to bring up but until we’re officially launched, it’s all just a blueprint. Once we get this rolling after the election, things will move rapidly. We need to get as many handraisers as possible before then.If you’re ready to make an impact by bringing conservatism back to the forefront of American political thought, please consider signing up.

    HRC has no butt. She has lied her ass off.

    From Max Boot’s article touting HRC, titled: What the hell happened to My Rep Party?
    http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/10/18/trump-presidential-election-gop-values-republican-party-conservative-principles/

    What the hell happened to you, Max Boot? You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

    For SCOTUS alone we must keep Angel out of the Oval. Nixonian belief she’s above the law, her contempt of country, citizens, constitution, etc- if H wins, we may as well do a Nat’l Thelma & Louise.

    Writing, “evidence of T’s degeneracy & lunacy”- are you saying HC isn’t a degenerate? Is it lunacy to think laws are beneath her? She’s ALREADY done harm to US & she’d do exponentially more. Her contribution to US is a body count. DT’s contribution? Tens of thousands of jobs. Wouldn’t he have greater economic insight than HC? Giving T’s words more weight than H’s actions is lunacy.

    Do ‘lunatics’ create billions in wealth? It takes wisdom. It takes razor-wits. HC has neither. Do a poll, find out how many Americans wish they had his affliction.

    Your hysteria re what MrT MIGHT do vs what HC HAS & WILL do is absurd. She has greatly harmed US. Her negligence/judgement has caused deaths. T’s hyperbole is a tool used for affect, not a guarantor of future actions. He ‘threatens’ the NYTimes with a lawsuit- he may never, but if it makes them back off, he wins- lunacy.
    Reagan’s rhetoric also scared the hell out of ppl when he ran.

    Your a-crack’s chaffed by his claim HC is in, ‘a conspiracy with a shadowy cabal of internat’l banks to plot destruction of sovereign US in order to enrich global financial powers, her friends & donors.’

    Really Max? Do you live under a rock?

    Seen Wiki’s leaks? HC to Brazil bankers, ‘I want to conspire w you shadowy cabal of internat’l bankers to plot destruction of sovereign US in order to enrich global financial powers, my friends & donors.’

    Seriously, look up & tell me if you see a rock ceiling.

    She wants a superstate called Snamerica, a ‘Borderless Hemispheric Common Market.’ Doesn’t that sound like destruction of sovereign US to you?

    You say, ‘Trump’s been ranting that election is rigged,’ as if it’s baseless. JimO’Keefe’s vids show mass voter fraud. Vote machines owned by Soros ppl, the dead taking time from their dirt naps to vote, MSM collusion w Clinton camp- Max, it happens every election. Where is you head? Do you see poop?

    You wrote, ‘72% approve of his threat to jail HC, a violation of most basic norms of democracy.’ Which is worse, your critique of the pub for agreeing w him, or your wish to see a criminal escape justice? Surely you’re not echoing MSM’s absurdity he wants to jail H for ‘political’ reasons r you? They got more on her than AlCapone.

    When you wrote, ‘Clinton, a flawed candidate, sure, but also a centrist Dem w ample qualif’ns for Prez,’ my drink burst out my nostrils. A flawed candidate? You think? Stalin was also ‘flawed’ w all his sillness. She’s a ‘centrist’? Yeah & tigers r vegetarian. Maybe the center of the far left. Ample qualif’ns for Prez? Name one.

    If not anti-Christ, HC is at least the anti-Midas, w awful judgement, even before her jellified brain wasn’t leaking all over. Her ethics are on par with a used-car hawker, & she’d be prime for extortion from our enemies to whom she handed our nation’s toppest secrets.

    HC has no butt, cuz she’s lied her ass off, & is so sickly, it’s hard to get out of bed the first 6 days after Sunday. How can we elect a woman who is buttless, has a withered husk of a face, & a voice like fingernails scraping chalkboard? Want to wake up to THAT for 4 years? The old cow needs to be put out to pasture.

    Washington, Franklin, Adams, & later Lincoln. God didn’t put such genius at US’s inception, so a blood-curdling lib screecher could ruin it. Hearing the sound of chronic PMS out her munch-hole will give me ear cancer. TomJeff didn’t write a Declaration of Diversity, he wrote, with awesome handwriting btw, a Declaration of Independence.

    I’ve learned the US is populated by lazybrains & dumbed-down peeps, many who can’t even name our opponent in the RevWar even after given the clue PRevere once rode, shouting, ‘The British are coming!’

    I’m afraid these ppl are about to put HC in WH. -Oh the tears in Heaven streaming down the cheeks of the Founders watching the demise of America from on high. The nation Abraham Lincoln saved and for which he was martyred. Just like the bitterly hot tears I shed for 3 days in Nov of 2012.
