Are conservatives headed towards a nightmare scenario?


What’s worse than watching Democrat policies – both on the domestic and foreign fronts – being implemented? Watching them being implemented by a Republican president.

In this episode of “The Conservative Conscience,” Daniel talks about the results of the special election in GA-6 and demonstrates why Republicans are headed towards a nightmare scenario if they don’t change course. On the one hand, they are perceived to have full control of government, a perception which has energized the Democrat base. On the other hand, we have gotten nothing done and the conservative base is no longer energized. This is a recipe for losing even red-leaning districts.

Using the latest news about the Iran deal, foreign policy, Obamacare, and the budget, Daniel shows how we are incurring all the political liabilities of Republicans controlling government but enjoying none of the policy benefits.

Key Quotes:

My warning from last year: “Anyone looking to this man for a nominee with a morsel of conservatism or authentic anti-establishment direction has sadly landed on a charlatan who embodies the epitome of what is wrong with tepid republicanism. Strip away the gratuitous boorishness and when it comes to real issues there is nothing but political correctness, uncertainty, and vacillation. Thus we are left with all of the vices of a non-politically correct candidate and none of the virtues.”
