Leadership, not thumb-sucking: Time for a new conservative movement



This is not “Celebrity Apprentice,” a business roundtable, or a think tank thumb-sucking seminar. This is the future of our civilization at stake. We need leadership in the White House, in Congress, and in the conservative movement (which is nonexistent) to speak with one voice and to speak to the morality, values, and ethos of our just cause the way the Left speaks to the morality of their immorality.

In honor of George Washington’s upcoming birthday, this episode of The Conservative Conscience is dedicated to drawing upon his legacy to inspire a new generation of conservative leaders who will rise to the occasion and confront the civilization-destroying challenges of this generation. It is quite evident from conservative leaders and Republican officials that their hearts are not sensitive enough to the severity of the threats against our sovereignty, security, civil society, and system of governance. Daniel lays out a blueprint for a path forward and commits to charting a new course.

Key Quotes:

“His was the directing spirit without which there would have been no independence, no Union, no Constitution, and no Republic. His ways were the ways of truth. He built for eternity. His influence grows. His stature increases with the increasing years. In wisdom of action, in purity of character, he stands alone. We cannot yet estimate him. We can only indicate our reverence for him and thank the Divine Providence which sent him to serve and inspire his fellow men.”

— President Calvin Coolidge, remarks celebrating Washington’s birthday in 1927

“All see, and most admire, the glare which hovers round the external trappings of elevated office. To me there is nothing in it, beyond the lustre which may be reflected from its connection with a power of promoting human felicity.”

— George Washington, letter to Catherine Macaulay Graham, January 9, 1790
