So ya wanna be a Republican, a member of the Grand Old Party? And you wanna claim the legacy of Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reagan? You wanna oppose them big-government-socialist-communist-tax-and-spend-tree-hugg’in-nanny-state-gun-grabb’in, one-world-government-UN-funding-diversity-promoting-cancel-culture-anti-law-n-order liberals?

Outstanding! Proud you’re putting American First. Welcome.

But, umm, first, before you can become a modern 2021 Republican, ya gotta pass a little test. It’s not hard, just a couple of questions. ‘Cause we can’t let just anyone into our party; you might be another Liz Cheney and we can’t have that, can we?

So please, take the test, so we can ensure you’re in step with today’s Republican values, and then we’ll sign you up. (And one other thing, but that’s later.)

It’s a simple True or False quiz. Ready?

So how did you do?

Unless you answered true to every question, you’re out! If you don’t believe, 1,000 percent, what people like Ron Johnson, MTG, Boebert, Gomert and the (Republican-real) president say, you are clearly a progressive/liberal/socialist/Black-Lives-Matter-lov’in/critical-race-theory-believe’in/Amerika-hating/Biden-voting Democrat and can’t be a part of the Republican party. We don’t want ya, like we don’t want Liz, Lisa or Mitt.

Now; one last thing:

Fighting Democrats ain’t cheap. And more importantly, insuring our real president, Donald Trump, lives a life style befitting his status as the god-chosen leader to Make America Great Again, you gotta pony up a few bucks. Directly to Donald’s personal account. Every month. For the next four years.

And, because America’s greatest witch hunt is gonna see Mr. Trump indicted, his defense is gonna cost lots. And, because he’s fighting for YOU, and not to enrich himself or his family, why should he pay for his past misdeeds; you should pay for all his years of lying, cheating, chiseling, grifting, womanizing, infidelity, tax fraud, and outright larceny.

So just click the button below and we’ll deduct as much as we need to keep Donald out of prison.

Oh, and welcome to the 2021 Republican Party.
