Trump is now laying the foundation for recruiting his own “Brown Shirt” thugs. Today in Pennsylvania Trump has asked for volunteers to police suspect areas of the state that he expects cheaters to show up at the polls. He has issued a form to be filled out for those interested in participating.

In other words he is putting together what amounts to a rolodex of folks who would be willing to act as his own private intimidation force, an American version of the old Nazi SA.

As I have been saying for some time now, Trump’s real strategy is to lose this election in order to break up the Republican Party and then run off with a large chunk of those fanatic that support him and form his own party.

The chances are very good that in four years, even if his America First Party,or whatever he names it, can only claim 35% of the electorate, it would be a winning majority. No other single party would be able to pick up more than 32% of the electorate. This is some very dangerous stuff that the Donald is laying down!
