This election season seems to be more about keeping the wrong people out of the Oval Office than about putting the right person into the office. Certainly, for many Republicans, this seems to be the case, and they are voting more to keep Hillary out than to put Trump in.
Regardless of whether you are voting Republican because you like Trump or because you oppose Hillary, there seems no question that Trump is energizing a huge amount of the party base and many independents that were not previously committed Republicans. His controversial strategy is appearing to be hugely successful.
And, yet, you have the establishment within the party saying the Trump should be careful what he says, that he should not rock the boat, that he should just play nice. Or, in the case of RNC National Chairman Reince Priebus, that Trump should be more “conservative.”
While I like that idea, I’m not sure Priebus actually knows what conservative means. After all, this is a guy who helped to get Paul Ryan “into power on the state level,” and we know that hasn’t gone well (He’s been pretty anti-Tea Party as Speaker of the House, in case you weren’t sure what I meant). We should all be concerned by what he means by “conservative” because, supposedly, Mitt Romney and John McCain have been conservative, too. We know how “successful” that was, don’t we?
What do you think that Reince Priebus means by “conservative?” Tell us below.
