If Private Citizen Trump
does not seek re-election in 2024

March 5, 2021 --

First, Republicans need to regain control of the House and Senate.

Citizen Trump and allies such as Governors Kristi Noem (R. - S.D.) and Ron DeSantis (R - Fla.) should campaign for legislators loyal to MAGA principles, including appearing together at campaign rallies.  No presidential campaign prior to January 2023!)  First things, first, and the first thing must be an end to Pelosi-Schumer efforts to crush to our founding principles.

If Citizen Trump announces his presidential candidacy after the November 2022 elections, Kristi and Ron should head up a group of Republican officials and VIPs campaigning for the former president's re-election in 2024.  Election Day in 2022 is November 8, a good omen as it will be the 6th anniversary of the election of President Trump in 2016.  May Republicans seek a 2024 return to the White House with GOP majorities in both houses in Congress. 

Also, LPR would consider Secretary Mike Pompeo for president, if Mr. Trump does not run.

Born December 30, 1963, he is now 57 years old, senior to Governor Noem, who is senior by almost eight years to Governor DeSantis.  (Suggesting a Pompeo-Noem ticket for Election Day,  November 5, 2024.)   As a website committed to the conservative populism of Federalist Papeer, No. 57, LPR likes that current 57 years of age for Secretary Pompeo. 

(But does he have the campaign skills of Governors Noem and DeSantis?)

If the two governors are to be the ticket, LPR would prefer the older Gov. Noem to the younger Gov. DeSantis, who would be perfect as her successor.

Perhaps Governors Noem and DeSantis, Secretary Pompeo, should spend time up to November 8, 2022 campaigning around the country, each of them carrying the banner of Trumpism, and explaining how the leftists lie viciously when they denounce and demean Trumpism as toxic to our democratic institutions and history. If Mr. Trump does not seek re-election in 2024 (LOL) Republican candidates must not attack one another.  They must campaign in a spirit of cooperation, not aggrandizement.

 Republican officials need to make it clear to the base of more than 75 million  -- and they seem to have begun doing so at the CPAC conference, February 26 - 28, and to independents,  that the media not only reports "fake news" about Trump and Trumpism, they lie ceaselessly about this movement to revitalize American democracy.  Why?  Because they see an informed public as a serious threat with the aim, finally, of draining The Swamp in which the hopes, ideals, aspirations of a free people have a habit of getting drowned, without mercy.   

Let the cry go forth:  Drain The Swamp.  MAGA For All.  GOD BLESS AMERICA.
