America: Land of the Hopeless

December 1, 2019

The Impeachment of President Donald Trump will leave a swath of taint on this President’s reputation, as long as there is an historical nation. Trump gives every indication that he is aware of that, but seems incapable of developing an effective defense.

Whether Trump’s Impeachment will lead to his defeat in 2020 is an unknown depending on whom his Democrat opponent is. If it’s Bernie or Warren, even an Impeached President may win. If the Democrats chose Biden, Trump will lose.

But, what will happen to what’s left of the GOP and the reputation of the “conservative” principles that are its backbone?  Those principles and we who hold them will be sullied and rebuilding a Party already compromised by the “Internationalism” of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, G. H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, will take as long as it took to grow a conservative community of Americans  from 1954 to 1980 when we conservatives were led by Russell Kirk, Bill Buckley, Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.

That “conservative community” is already in disrepair due to a weakened consciousness of fundamental principle. We Americans are a practical people and our most distinctive character is our abiding common sense. We know what’s right when we hear it. Unfortunately, none has stepped forward much as Ronald Reagan did with expressions of his deeply held belief.

Since leaders of that caliber do not exist at present, it may take fifty to seventy-five years to find and develop that leadership. During that time, what’s left of individual freedom and freedom of enterprise in the United States will come very close to being extinguished.
