Wouldn't Rocky De La Fuente be the Reform nominee?

The Crypto-Party sounds like a reference to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Rocky changes his party constantly. He is less consistent than Trump, if you can believe it. Yeah, Crypto-Party is a hypothetical party created by former Q-Anon influencers.

Crypto-Party sounds to me like a party pushing, supporting, and advocating those purely-digital, highly-fluctuating, no-backing-in-value, no-security-from-theft-or-hacking, fly-by-night currencies that are being touted.

I also thought of crypto currency when I saw the name

The Reform Party doesn't really exist anymore as a separate entity. It, like the Delta Party, the other of the two parties De La Fuente had a joint ticket of in 2016, merged into the Alliance Party shortly after De La Fuente became it's 2020 Presidential candidate (and thus it wouldn't exist to nominate Donald Trump, Jr.., not that it likely would have, anyways). The Alliance Party is also a merger of several other Third Parties, including the Modern Whig Party, the Minnesota Independence Party (the party Jesse Ventura ran on as as Governor of Minnesota), the Veteran's Party (the first of two parties win the U.S. with that name), the Centrist Party of California, and a few others. The Alliance Party is, indeed, the party nominated De La Fuente, NOT the Independent Party, which @vcczar has, above, but is actually a far-right-wing, paleoconservative, ultra-nationalist, White Supremacist party with roots in the American Independent Party that nominated George Wallace in 1968 when he became the last Third Party candidate, to date, to win EV's - quite an inappropriate party.

By independent, I'm saying Rocky is running in this hypothetic situation under no official party.

@vcczar Why do you support Bice over McCain? I thought McCain's getting your support for sure.

I considered her, but she also makes statements that make me think she's no better than Bice. I also considered that I don't think Meghan McCain would handle the job well. I think the tipping point is her neocon attachment. Bice doesn't come off as the disaster that Trump was or what Hawley could be. I don't really like any of the GOP options I put.

I am shocked to see Republican's elected the first Iranian Congresswoman, I did see her primary was close, is she more moderate?

Iranian-Americans, like Chinese-Americans, don't tend to reflect political attitudes from, "the Old Country." Though maybe not necessarily as voficerously vocal against their ethnic homeland's regime as Cuban-Americans tend to be.

Also, remember, "Reformist," in Iran is quite hard Conservative in the U.S., and, "Conservative," in Iran is unthinkably unelectable and ultra-extremist in the U.S.

That means that on certain issues, Marjorie Taylor Greene could be seen as a Far-Left extremist in Iran.
