Reuters reports that over 100 former Republican officials will threaten to create a third party if the GOP does not "break" with Donald Trump.
"When forces of conspiracy, division and despotism emerge in our democratic republic, it is the patriotic duty of citizens to work together for freedom and justice," explains the New York Times.
"The Republican Party is broken," said Miles Taylor, one of the organizers behind the letter. "It is time for the" rationales "to resist the" radicals "."
As you may recall, Taylor lied about his low-ranking administration position to publish an anonymous statement in the New York Times admitting he was "part of the resistance within the Trump administration."
A letter from the group entitled "A Call for American Renewal" was reportedly released Thursday the day after House Republicans ousted anti-Trump representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) from leadership in part because of her incessant criticism had from Trump and his supporters.
More than 100 Republicans, including some former elected officials, are preparing to release a letter this week threatening to form a third party if the Republican Party doesn't make certain changes, according to an effort organizer. https://t.co/K6ANeMEO7Z

Names like former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin, former Republican governors Tom Ridge and Christine Todd Whitman, and former George W. Bush Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters have emerged as supporters of the movement.
McMullin told Reuters that if the GOP doesn't break with Trump, part of it "will have no choice but to part with it and build something new".
None of these people is currently relevant to today's Republican Party. They are lost souls consumed with their own false self-esteem.

NeverTrump will lose
The irony is that the only chance to create a successful third party is that of a President Trump.
A poll shortly after the Capitol protest in January – the breaking point for much of these Never Trumpers – found that a large majority of Republican voters do not blame Trump for the crowd's actions and believe he has the right to demand them Choice.
Another poll in February found that an overwhelming percentage of Republican voters would join a new political party founded by Trump.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, destroyed the relatively small group that threatened to leave the GOP.
"Those losers left the Republican Party when they voted for Joe Biden," he tweeted.

George W. Bush himself campaigned for a new breed of Republican candidate to run in 2024. One with pro-gun control and pro-amnesty views.
According to Politico, Bush is looking for a Republican candidate who supports "appropriate arms reform measures" and "a path to citizenship for undocumented workers" in the next presidential election.

Despite over 100 Republicans threatening to quit the party over Trump, President Biden said, according to the White House chief of staff Ron Klain, expects a rematch against his predecessor.
In an interview with Axios, Klain said that Biden knows a rematch is "a very real possibility".
Trump is the overwhelming favorite to win the Republican nomination again in 2024 should he elect to run, and a handful of stranded "losers" like McMullin and Taylor will not change that.
