It is better to be a focused minority party with leaders who are committed to the principles of the party then it is to be an unfocused majority party whose leaders are not committed to the principles of the party.
Is Donald Trump a committed conservative?
Not in my book.
First, let’s define a conservative.
A conservative is one who wishes to conserve constitutional principles that are embodied, surprisingly enough, in the Constitution knowing full well that the Founding Fathers imbued their religion and philosophies into that Constitution.
Implicit in this statement is that the Founding Fathers were unusually gifted individuals who have earned the right to be the spiritual fathers of our Constitution, its expression and its interpretation.
In other words, the wisdom, the philosophy and the attitudes of the Founding Fathers counts – a lot.
Intent counts also.
What did the Founding Fathers intend? What was their overall goal in writing this constitution?
What they sought was the limitation of powers of the federal government and the protection of individual rights.
They sought to avoid tyranny in any form, be it a king, a dictator, or a committee.
They embodied this intent in the Bill of Rights, the most important part of our Constitution.
The Bill of Rights are what we argue about. They embody what is closest to our heart
The Bill of Rights are the crown jewels of the United States of America. They are the sine qua non of our nation.
Take away the Bill of Rights and we have no nation.
It is therefore the prime responsibility of any conservative to defend the Bill of Rights.
This is how we best fight tyranny.
Tyranny is not out there across the sea; it’s here within the dark heart of man.
Tyranny is not in China or Russia; it’s right here in America in the dark heart of Palo Alto and Wall Street.
While the media and our so-called leaders obsess over China, unenlightened tyrants here in America enslave us with nutty junk science in the form of face masks, lockdowns, and prohibited speech.
Do we have a president in Donald Trump who defends the Bill of Rights?
No, we do not.
Where was the President when Alex Jones was removed from all major internet media platforms?
Where was the President when Julian Assange was sequestered away in a British prison ostensibly to be delivered to the US to stand trial?
Where was the President when people’s personal property was being destroyed by rioters?
Where was the President when people were forced to live inside their homes for months on end?
Where was the President when people were compelled to wear a face mask in order to enter a public building?
Where was the President when people’s right to freely associate was denied?
The President was absent.
The President was absent because he doesn’t understand where America gains its strength. The President principally wants to be President. Or he misguidingly equates military strength with moral strength.
Sadly he’s not the only one to equate a six-hundred ship navy with true strength.
Many other so-called conservatives and conservative leaders believe this also; and because they do, they’ll sell the Bill of Rights and the Constitution down the river in order to achieve it.
Obviously this type of thinking must be reversed.
We can begin by getting rid of its so-called conservative leader, Donald Trump.
He’s no conservative.
