I DON'T FALL IN LOVE with politicians – the last presidential candidate I voted for with ardor was Ronald Reagan in 1980 – and my heart doesn't break when those I support don't win. Nor am I a party loyalist. As a conservative I vote for Republicans more often than not; for those of us committed to free enterprise, limited government, military strength, and a healthy civil society, there is usually no better option. But the Republican Party isn't the conservative movement. And a GOP defeat doesn't mean conservatism – or the GOP, for that matter – is in crisis....
"What is the future of Conservatism?" True Conservatism in the USA pretty much 'died' when the International Banking cartel, known as the Federal Reserve, took control of our nation's fiscal policy in 1913, thanks to a progressive university professor elected POTUS named Woodrow Wilson. Since then, we have had a string of Keynesian socialist, deficit spending, progressive administrations, some labeled as "Democrat", others as "Republican", but ALL serving the Wall Street/Federal Reserve/ Military Industrial axis. NOBODY has tried to balance the budget of the United States for many generations. There are NO real conservatives left in our government; just professional politico 'actors' catering to those who fancy themselves conservative.
