Conservative commentator Dennis Prager recently wrote a column in which he blamed what he sees as two major failures within the Republican party (and the conservative movement) on purist conservatism. One of them, as you can probably guess, was the collapse of the American Health Care Act. The Republican-sponsored bill,… CONTINUE

Depending on your stance the gay icon firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos is either a heroic warrior of the right while defending our freedoms, or he is a self-serving PR hound of questionable conservative pedigree. I have long been standing with the latter. After years of agitating and courting the media this past weekend saw Milo become embroiled in scandal as comments he made in support | Read More »

To say the Right side of the aisle has been divided this year would be a gross understatement. Way back when the election cycle started, the Republican field had 17 candidates. Several had their own fan base made up of diehard supporters whose allegiance was to their candidate alone. One by one, the hopefuls dropped out. Not long after, Donald Trump became the GOP nominee. | Read More »

This year more than ever, the GOP has shown it is just as focused on things for which we shame the Left: charisma, emotion, and cult of personality.

I loved the speech Cruz delivered to the RNC in Cleveland. At least I want to love it. Leon gave a good overview of what Cruz said and the stylistic improvements Cruz has made since leaving the campaign trail. I couldn’t fully embrace the speech because, despite those who say Cruz didn’t endorse, this speech was a capitulation to the party and Trump. I hear | Read More »

They say that every dark cloud has a silver lining, and I think we’re seeing one with Trump. What could possibly be good about Trump’s rise, you ask? Maybe this one thing – he’s exposing several influential lawmakers for what they are: opportunists who care less about principle than power. Several former candidates have essentially endorsed Trump since suspending their campaigns. These politicians, who formerly | Read More »
There is an improbably claim floating about that Donald Trump represents a threat to conservatism. He doesn’t but some conservatives are.
The post Why A Donald Trump Presidency Can Only End Conservatism If We Let It appeared first on RedState.
Conservatives are currently looking at the short-term and wondering how in the world to stop Donald Trump. The reality is that it is simply too late to save this election, and conservatives cannot win with either outcome: Donald Trump as president or, more likely, Hillary Clinton as president. It leaves us with the one option that conservatives, frankly, have not been very good at – playing | Read More »
