I know I’m getting a lot of flak in the comments for telling Republicans to knock off the suicidal third party talk and the despondency and the “I’ll vote Democrat just to show how mad I am at the Republicans” nonsense. I know that a lot of people are feeling that, and here are the numbers to prove it.

Look, if you want to cut off your nose to spite your face, do it with a pair of scissors, not by voting Democrat. That will make the entire country bleed.

Taking your ball and going home literally means you let the other side win by default. The Republicans have an excellent chance of retaking both the House and Senate in 2022 and stopping this full-scale assault on our rights, freedoms, security and economy, but not if we don’t show up to vote. And I mean vote for a major party that actually has a chance of winning, not a splinter party that just splits the conservative vote and elects the left with a plurality. Republicans in Georgia didn’t show up for the runoffs in the same numbers as they did in November, and that gave us two of the most radical Senators in history and a tied Senate controlled by Kamala Harris.

I’m sorry if you don’t like me telling you the truth, but there are any number of media outlets that tell people only what they want to hear, regardless of reality. Here are some cold facts: If you claim to be a conservative yet you vote to empower leftists, you’re not a conservative. As for just sitting out future elections, I’ll remind you of the wisdom attributed to Edmund Burke:

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

    I agree with you! No third party for us! We have a majority already that are for Trump. Let the never Trumpers do the third party.

    Good evening Mike, bottom line is this...Republicans cannot win without Trump and these career swamp Republicans had better figure out how to find some unity

    No third party - but Mr trump needs to retire. Those of us without the millions need to concentrate on 2022. Recruit conservative candidates. The name calling, disrespectful manner & bully language does not work. Why do we expect civility from our children & not from mr trump. The left is not going to hate him any less if he’s polite, (maybe more) but the messages will start to resonate with those that just tune him out when he rants. McConnell isn’t going to run again. Let’s get the Republican Party’s recruitment of young, conservative candidates started!!

    Mike don't the Congressional GOP understand how pissed we are? Surely the Million Mega March and Jan 6th rallies were not totally lost on them?
