I am a middle-aged man who, formerly liberal, is now a conservative.  I work in corporate America and happen to be a political activist: elected county committeeman in 2014; a loyal attendee of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC); an active member of the Federalist Society.

As a conservative citizen, I favor originalist judges who are faithful to the U.S. Constitution, an American immigration policy that favors American citizens, and retiring the exploding national debt.

The current Republican Party is led by politicians who have grown comfortable in their offices and make deals that often are at odds with the interests of the American people.  It is a party without principles.  It is a party that has lost its way.  It is a soulless party.

We must rebrand the Republican Party.  We must retool the Republican Party.  We must revitalize the Republican Party.

It must be a party that stands for something.  It must articulately defend core conservative principles.  It must stand with the American people.

We must restore the party of Lincoln.

That is the mission of the Reluctant Conservative.

One thought on “About

  1. First: what do you mean by the party of Lincoln? What part of Lincoln’s philosophy do you look to pull our country out of the mire it has walked into? Can you go into this with more detail?

    Icompletely agree with you that the Rebuplican party is definitely losing its way. May concern with them retooling is that we end up with more people like Mitch McConnell who is making back door deals for family members with China and then drops all of his hard line talk on China. Or Jeff Flake who runs as a strong conservative and then ends up talking like a democrat or John McCann. We need more people like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Trey Gowdy, Mike Lee, Louie Gomer, Darrell Issa, Jim Jordan, and others of their same ilk.

    Where are the true conservative who are willing to do the hard things and cut government in half. Cut back on the regulations on insurance and banking. Allow insurance to compete across state lines so they are more competetive. Allowing ala carte coverage in health coverage. Government needs to get out of my daily life including staying out of the internet. I had a woman tell me that they need to stay out of her body, I knew she was referring to abortion. Government should not be in the business of abortion, including paying for them to the tune of $500,000,000 per year. I would like my taxes to be out of other woman’s bodies.

    I would like to the govenrment to protect our country including our borders and stay out of our daily lives.
