Hillary Clinton is well on her way to 300 electoral votes in November and delivering a near Reagan-esque level ass-kicking for Democrats. As unlikely as it seemed only a year ago, a career politician as corrupt as the day is long will win the election, even with net favorable ratings in the negative double-digits. She’ll dissolve our borders, stock the Supreme Court with vegan, transgender tree-huggers and use the power of the federal government to build a nanny state to manage every aspect of our lives.
All while the red ink flows and individual Liberty wanes. And yet, while her election is one man’s fault, it still isn’t the worst thing he’s done.
Sending The Party Off A Cliff
While Donald J Trump may have handed the keys of this republic to a profiteering, untrustworthy mental midget, his most heinous crime against Liberty has gone largely un-noticed. Donald not only engineered Hillary’s win and put the Republican party on life support, his true sin against humanity is the damage he’s done to the conservative brand. Despite never earning conservative support, he’s now intent on driving conservatism off of a cliff. The result will foment decades of distrust and be much more damaging than a single Hillary Clinton term.

Sound dramatic? I assure you it is not. Your average voter, particularly the young, now associates conservatism with Trump. They think that all conservatives agree with him, act this way behind closed doors and endorse his behavior. Donald Trump is playing a cartoon character of every conservative stereotype and making it simple to paint us all with a broad brush and a palette filled with – racism, misogyny, dishonesty, and hypocrisy. This will undoubtedly have repercussions for years to come as voters come of age and buy into the false narrative.
How can conservatism attract young people when the version they’ve seen as synonymous with the movement is so unscrupulous and vile? Whether you believe the mainstream media is honest, whether you think we need new policies and plan to hold your nose to get them, one thing is without question. Donald Trump is a truly wretched human being. While I can’t speak to his faith, his actions in no way indicate a belief in any God other than himself. Consider the following. Donald Trump has…
- A documented history of infidelity and dishonesty
- Been a crass, belligerent, self-aggrandizing ass
- Lied about self-funding the campaign while using donations to line his company’s pocket
- Repeatedly sexualized his own daughter
- Disrespected women
- Shown he has incredibly thin skin and a hair trigger
- Been proven to be disloyal and wholly unlikeable
None of these are qualities that reflect conservative ideals. None could be used to characterize conservative leaders in the past. They don’t describe Reagan or Goldwater… heck they don’t even describe Rubio or Cruz.
A Moral Imperative
True conservatives accept that that our rights come from God and a politician’s job is to protect those rights and individual liberty. They believe in morality, fiscal restraint and Reagan’s three-legged stool. They believe the US is a shining light on a hill responsible for spreading democracy and that living our ideals matter. Trump believes none of this. He only believes in Trump. He is a New York City liberal who funded Hillary Clinton with multiple donations, and has the same progressive worldview.

So as we line up at the polls in November and take public stands on social media for and against candidates, I urge you to choose carefully. Many are watching and noting what conservatives will do. Trump won’t and can’t win the election no matter what you do, but preserving your personal political capital and being true to conservative principles matters. Don’t fall for this charlatan’s bait and switch, he’s not one of us and he never was.
