The Emerging Uniparty

Note: I contracted German Ebola on my trip to the Fatherland so in addition to having a rocket high fever, I have also lost my voice. I may post something tomorrow, but it is not looking good right now.


The concept of the uniparty has been around a long time, long before political hucksters started using it as catchphrase. The fear of the major parties conspiring with one another to shortcut the will of the people goes back to the 19th century. On the one hand, the two parties should compromise, but on the other hand they should be competing for the approval of the voters. The line between cooperation and conspiracy is not easy to define, but it is assumed to exist.

In the modern age, the uniparty idea has mostly circulated on the Right, because conservatives keep voting harder but always get more of the same. When the Republicans win, they immediately fink on their voters. When they are in the minority, they bend over backwards to help the Democrats. The uniparty in this context is a way of saying that both parties serve the same master. The master can be whatever you like, but it is not the American people.

The truth is the uniparty has been in control since the end of the Second World War when America emerged as a global empire. The “Cold War consensus” was an agreed upon moral framework in which both parties operated. They could tolerate the eccentric oddball here and there for color, but the two parties made sure the people in important position were fully onboard with the consensus. The disputes within the consensus were about how to reach the shared goals.

This is why Ronald Reagan was so worrisome at first. The consensus on the Soviets had evolved to be a choice between detente and appeasement. Reagan and his team were looking to go back to the hawkish approach of the Kennedy years. It was not just foreign policy that worried Washington. Reagan and his team were full of big talk about rolling back the welfare state. In the end, Reagan and the conservatives agreed to operate within the consensus on everything.

That was not the same thing as the uniparty though. Today it feels like the parties not only collude with one another, but they laugh about it. The new tough talking Speaker of the House just pushed through a continuing resolution to keep funding government at current rates with the help of the Democrats. In fact, more Democrats voted for the bill than Republicans. The GOP went through all that drama about picking a Speaker only to get one who prefers working with the other party.

This is becoming more common. It is not just that the Republicans fink on their conservative voters and the Democrats fink on their crazies. It is that they collude with one another in the finking and do so in the open. Twenty years ago, they put on a big show about this stuff, but now it is as if they are tired of pretending. In a world where incumbents win 95% of the time, why bother with the show? We may be about to see Washington embrace the uniparty concept.

Look at what the neocons are plotting on the Republican side. They are positioning Nikki Haley as the last shrew standing, so that when Trump is disqualified from the ballot, she will be the party nominee. Haley would fit much better in the other party as she agrees with them on the important issues. The only difference between Haley and Biden is Haley is shriller. The Republican Party is plotting to run an orange version of Hillary Clinton and no one in the party thinks this is weird.

Of course, the reason this will happen is both parties locked shields after the 2016 election to block Trump. If the Republicans had provided Trump with the support he needed to get his agenda passed, it would have been a mostly normal presidency and he probably would have won in 2020. Instead, both parties went berserk and what followed was four years of mayhem and now four years of a doddering old simpleton that routinely makes a fool of himself in public.

What we are about to see is the uniparty emerge in full to both end the Biden madness and wall off politics from the bulk of the voters. Both parties will celebrate the election of the first hostile alien as president. Meanwhile, most voters want something entirely different, but that will never be on offer, so you can vote for any candidate you like as long as she is approved by the uniparty. If you complain then War Karen will have the tech companies hand your name to the usual suspects.

The next step from here is to just get rid of the party labels entirely. Not too long ago they meant something, but that is no longer the case. It is not just the disgruntled who think this but the parties themselves. Again, with the system rigged so it is close to impossible to get voted out of office, why would the parties need to keep up this charade of the two-party system? When you think about it, it is insulting. Not insulting to you but to them. No one cares about you.

One party states are common, so a one-party country is not a stretch. Most Latin American countries are one party systems. There are opposition parties, but they rarely win power and when they do, they are soon deposed. France has become a one-party system along with Germany. They have multiple parties, but the main parties all collude with one another to keep power to themselves. For America to follow the same path, but more explicitly, is not hard to imagine.

I never liked the uniparty designation, other than ease of use. There is an Official Government Party. It is the only valid political party. All others are tolerated so long as they don’t pose a threat to the OGP. Hence Biden’s Hitlerian speech last year in front of the blood red spotlights and fake Marines. The OGP is fine when it enjoys popular support. The current OGP does not enjoy popular support, as evidenced by Trump and RFK Jr drawing about 70% of the public in polling. So, the OGP has resorted to violence using its Brownshirt goon squads, and… Read more »

How many “voters” were involved in 2020 or 2022? Is it possible to determine? Not that it matters because computer data is zeros and ones – nothing more. So the reason for the “mail-in ballots” and people “dropping ballots” at random is to prop up the fakery. Isn’t it?

The polls said that Trump 2020 was going to lose by 10+%, so the TV numbers that *didn’t* reflect that prediction are believable. Power believes its own lies. He won by more than any presidential candidate has ever won.

The polls said that the 2022 “red wave” was illusory, so the counts that showed the red wave happening (until suddenly it reversed) were true.

Even now that they’re overwhelmed by Mexicans/etc., California and New York are *still* majority Republican—in reality. But does reality matter at all?

I live in uniparty California so I have already gotten a taste of the future. The national uniparty will preserve the architecture of the republic while emptying it of its previous content (as did the Roman emperors, who preserved the forms of the republic while assuming total power for themselves).

I commented behind the green door that I’m in the process of reading My New Order, a collection published in 1941 of Hitler’s speeches and the resulting commentaries in the popular press of the day. It’s jarring how many of his arguments sound relevant today. The JQ bit can get tiresome, but honestly if you were to replace “Jew” with “globalist” many passages could be read a century later with very little editing. We’re going on a century of noticing the same things.

Collapse is a cope as bad or worse than that Q bullshit. There has never been a MadMax collapse in recorded history, defined as all existing government disappearing to allow new governments to rise. e.g., Bartertown. What has always happened is that large nations split into smaller ones, with existing powers snapping up territory.

The American system arguably was designed to be a one-party state. The Founders’ criticisms of parties indicates that to be so. The idea was the factions would be forced into consensus and close ranks. They could because the differences were not stark. That system worked in the sense of widespread acceptability as long as there was one hyper-dominant racial group of very similar ethnicities. Once that went away, being on the wrong side of a political battle became fraught with danger from other hostile, unrelated tribes.

This is the most dangerous part. There was still a consensus, even in Soviet Russia for a while, that if you turn yourself in you’ll get a fair shake. We’re at that stage, but it’s eroding rapidly. On the other side you have people openly saying intimidating judges is okay, and the bar associations are now starting to purge bad-thinkers.

In the 2000s while traveling, I met a female Canadian near my age (we then would have been in our mid-40s). She’d come of age in Quebec in the 1960s when the nation was liberalizing. E.g. university became more accessible and she became a civil engineer. From her stories and a few other accounts, at least Quebec was VERY conservative until the 60s, sounded like America of twenty years earlier, maybe. Although a second hand story, this would seem to show just how much to the left [Canadian] culture has moved in just a few generations.

There is a better chance of electing AH to president than civil war 2 happening in the next 5 years. By CW2, I mean something close to CW1, with war between the feds and a group of states. Hell, there is probably a higher chance a civil war breaks out between California and the rest of the country because Ca wants to leave. Red state governors will happily send their young men to make sure CA can’t leave.

CA stays in the Union because CA cannot survive without the continental snow pack.

I always laugh when people draw a secession map showing all of CA. They’d keep the coastal cities inland 30-40 miles and end up looking something like Israel on a map.

Their survival would depend on giving the Chinese basing rights in their harbors, at which point the USA invades.

There are already one-party states like New York and California that indicate where this is headed. Policy options are internecine squabbles between factions of the same party and thus range from crazy to insane. New York’s obese black attorney general — the same one who issuing Trump for “fraud” — just announced she is suing PepsiCo for using plastic packaging because 17% of the litter found in public is allegedly their brand. Corporatism is a big thing in one-party states, the government uses civil lawfare to force the “private” companies to enforce political policies if they want to stay in… Read more »

And the people love it as I mentioned with the horrible machines and people who inhabited them throughout our history. The people voted for them and lavished them for trinkets. No different than the backs and browns who inhabit those machines today. Yet people still live in these shitholes which is the most amazing thing around. NYC is bad but Chicago is one of the worst cities I’ve ever been in. Gotta love those daleys though.

For grim humor, I sometimes go to conservative site like HotAir to watch them try to get their readers excited about Haley. It’s a bit crass, but it reminds me of a man trying to get aroused for a willing woman that he is not very attracted to.

To my surprise, the writers at HotAir seem troubled by her latest proposal to ban anonymity on the internet.

To their credit, they do have some principles other than money.

It’s a pattern I’ve noticed since the late 90s. You’ve got your bitter clingers (to power), the defeated, and the wreckers.

Every now and then the wreckers get annoyed and wreck something; the bitter clingers clamp down harder, start another war, issue more debt, spread the love, etc.; the defeated take another black pill.

The wreckers are having their way in the end (not The End), and that’s probably necessary and healthy. It’s going to tear itself apart and— here you go millennials, it’s your problem! Dealing with problems will be more worthwhile.

Nikki Haley will be the next president. I guarantee it. It will be a narrow electoral win but she will pull it out because the economy will be perceived as weak.

She actually has lot going for her that will appear to the center:

She’s moderate on abortion, strong on foreign on policy, and reasonable on the economy. She took down the confederate flag and monuments and her daughter married a Black Man.

You can’t go full uni-party until you have a totalitarian state. The purpose of political parties is to polarize the populace, pit them against each other on muh issues.

If you establish a uni-party state, you divide the populace into pro/against The Party, so you need to control every web site and fling every dissident into mental asylums, like they did in Soviet Russia.

Because I’ve donated to the Republican party, I still get fundraising texts. At the last Republican debate, there were five candidates. Since the debate, I’ve received a total of five “support me/donate to me” texts on behalf of candidates. This represents an average of one text per candidate, statistically speaking. Of those five texts, here’s the breakdown by candidate. Chris Christie: 0 Ron DeSantis: 0 Vivek Ramaswamy: 0 Tim Scott: 0 Nikki Haley: 5 The party machine is obviously desperate to whip up support for her. I don’t see this happening.

Quite true. But it’ll take a mountain of fraud to push that harpy up the hill.

Plus, there’s the primary to consider. Trump voters are still bitter and angry. If the Republican party makes Nikki the candidate through a fortified primary process, the Republican party loses even more legitimacy, which is good news for dissidents. The sooner those finking losers go away, the better.

You’re only half correct. Yes, the big Southern cities contain plenty of northerners and liberals, but these people won’t be voting Republican.

That only worked in Virginia and to a lesser extent Georgia and to an even lesser extent North Carolina.

Fragmentation and dissolution is happening more at the state level now and it is sometimes stark.

The reason to keep the party system going is to raise money off the rubes who get worked up about it.

No clear thinking person could give money to the likes of Chris Christie, Mike Pence or Tim Scott.
