The pragmatic way of getting better MAGA representation in Congress:
1. Register as a Republican. This is important because in many states you cannot vote in primaries to get a better candidate on the ballot in the general election.
2. If the candidate you preferred did not win in the primary, vote for the Republican who won because majorities are needed to pass legislation. Majorities also determine committee chairs, thus what is determined salient.
3. All legislation begins in the House. A bill passes the House and moves to the Senate if it receives 219 votes because that is more than half of the 435 members.
4. Once a bill passes the House, it moves to the Senate where it needs 51 votes, which is more than half of the 100 members.
5. Once a bill passes the Senate, it is sent to the President for a signature. He may sign it or veto it. If he vetos it, then it can go through both houses again, but will only become law if the veto is overridden with a 2/3 majority in both chambers.
6. The centrifugal force moving voters away from the core of conservatism is by design. The opposition knows that intentionally evoking emotional reactions to current events is destructive. Don't be a dumbass by deciding to become an independent.
Voting for anyone other than a Republican will not help President Trump. Third parties will pull votes from Republicans, which will mean we do not have majorities to pass legislation. Also, independents do not have a major party platform or other members to tether them on votes.
Bernie Sanders is an independent too. Go for it! I'm glad to see you finally embrace what you are - a leftist. Qanon is a leftist, collectivist ideology and you've been pushing that for months. Like Bernie, they want to rip up the Constitution and end the right to trial by jury.
