What has conservatism conserved? I'll take my chances with the orange dude, at least he was willing to advocate for ordinary American workers and dragged the Overton window a bit back to the right.
They preserved the Chamber of Commerce and AIPAC, does that count?
They preserved their bank accounts by enriching themselves and their families.
The argument the author makes is that Republicans are the keepers of conservatism, and since Republicans are casting Trump out, you must abandon Trump or something. Honestly, the article made my head hurt.
National Review went full retard in 2016 and never recovered. Bunch of fools who like to sniff their own farts over there.
Love this site you get the real news months or years in advance...plus we have the funniest people.
Conservatism has largely been conserving the Deep State.
The Deep State must be conserved!!
It's a false choice.
I'll pick what is behind the Orange curtain!
"conservatism" is a word, Trump is a man, NR is a bunch of retards.
Conservatism is more than a word, it's a philosophy of preserving the functional institutions of the past. The opposite of progressivism.
Modern day conservatives have lost the plot, attempting to preserve relatively new dumbass institutions that work to enrich themselves (MI complex, big pharma, etc.)
Trump is just bringing us back to proper conservatism
Conservatives couldn't even conserve the women's bathroom!
I'll take Trump.
I choose right wing nationalist populism.
I can't believe the writers there are still this deranged. I'm glad VDH left when he did, but I admit it's interesting poking in there once in a while and still seeing the same crap, yet some of the top voted comments mock the authors these days. It used to be a place where you'd get a breadth of conservative ideas, but it's been watered down to "the editors", and they all hate Trump more than getting conservative policy enacted and winning.
The author of the acticle even defends Paul Ryan and Mike Pence.
Nat Review is a slave dog of K Street lobbyists, Heritage Foundation and related think tanks, Neocons, Rinos and Ivy League College republican alumni
VDH? Who's that?
Victor Davis Hansen
My favorite historian.
"I can't believe the..."
Uniparty is real. They're not deranged, they're lying to you. They're selling you a product. It's not the magazine it used to be because different people are running it. Snap out of it.
"more than getting conservative policy enacted and winning"
If they are anything like the politicians they choose over Trump, they don't actually want that. None of them want that. Why would they want that?
The past is gone. But... it would have been interesting to see who Buckley supported in 2016, 2020, and 2024.
CON-Servatives have handed over our Country to commies.
TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP.... So sorry a-holes, this TRAIN HAS NO BRAKES!!
Conservatism has nothing to do with the National Review. They have done nothing to roll back the tide of child groomers and their sick operation. For all any of us can tell they are integrated with this operation.
Furthermore, Trump represents a populist movement. This means an American movement. He not running for president of the National Review email marketing list. He is running for President of the United States of America. This means taking the case for conservative ideas to the American people as well as respecting their rights enshrined by our Constitution.
He does this effectively while sticking a thumb in the eye of these corrupt, grifting assholes. People who have emptied our treasury, left us in debt, and are bringing our nation to the brink of ruin.
They and their neoliberal allies can get fucked for their constant lies and the betrayal of the every day American citizen.
Conservatism is just progressivism going to speed limit.
Trump was never tied to conservatism, are they stupid?
If someone has already made America great AND energy independant, that's my pick.
We can be energy independant again.
They don't understand how we work, we'll take ANYTHING but the current thing. They think we want people like Jeb or something, it's incredible how unaware they are.
Trump and MAGA Won and they know it! and will win again 2024!
Honestly this country doesn't need conservatism right now. It needs something to get us back to anything resembling more than a hundred years ago. THEN conservativism could actually be a thing. We need people willing to push things back, not just stand in one place.
Cue up the bugs bunny NO meme
Trump. Next question please.
I choose Trump. To the death.
What do satan worshippers know about conservatism?
Fuck the neofags. Can't die out fast enough.
Trump is just the ultimate anti-conservative in every way:
Strong supporter of 2A
Strong supporter of law enforcement
Strong supporter of border security, border wall, border guards
Strong supporter of freedom of speech
Strong supporter of states' rights, much smaller and sharply limited fedgov, lower taxes, more freedom, fewer regulations
Job creator extraordinaire
Sleeps 4 hours a night, business owner mentality, employer of thousands
Strong supporter of Christian values and rights
Strong supporter of right to choose whether to take medicines, vaccines, etc.
First anti-war president in our lifetimes
America First always
Etc., etc., etc.
No conservative worth his salt would EVER identify with any of these things
Pick One: Uni-Party Cuckery or Trump
Floridians love Trump and DeSantis!
Wtf does "conservatism" even mean to National Review? The words "liberal" and "conservative" are misused so damn much in the U.S. now, they're effectively meaningless.
Bush was supposedly "conservative" yet he passed the Patriot Act. One of the most egregious governmental oversteps in American history. I didn't hear the National Review telling people to choose Bush or conservatism.
What I want is the decimation of the U.S. federal government. I want at least 90% of it destroyed as well as its laws, taxes & regulations abolished. Trump is at least willing to begin the job. Granted, he isn't going NEARLY far enough, and if I hear of someone else willing to go further I'll join them, but until then it's Trump.
Ok... Trump it is.
Because the only thing those cucks are trying to conserve is globalism.
Buh bye neocons
THE FUCKING CHOICE HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE, FAGGOTS!
Who is actually listening to people like Fred Barnes, Jonah Goldberg, or Bill Kristol?
These retards have literally fuck all to offer "conservatism" in a real sense.
They were simply the media branch of the RINO wing of the uniparty.
That's easy...the ONLY Politician in 60+ years that told us The Truth and shined a light on all the snakes in both parties and the Deep state. Only Trump. I'm embarrassed that I voted for Romney/Ryan and then found out they are just members of The Club and no better for American Values than Obama
