Are You a Rebel Without a Cause? – Constant Negativity Interferes With Conservatism

By Janice Barlow FOR THE PAST COUPLE YEARS, the nation has been dividing itself between those who were for, and those who remain against the man who ultimately became the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump. The lines dividing the voters kept shifting and continue to do so. For the conservatives among us, the narrative should be shifting from NeverTrump to NeverLiberal.

Republicans, You’ve Been Trumped – The Foundations of Conservatism are Being Washed Away

by Oletta Branstiter Reality TV President – Not A Conservative After a week of extra-special buffoonery, our President seems to be using his social media bully pulpit to scream, “How d’ya like me now?!” as his apologists continue to make excuses for him.
