How far could American conservatism replicate before it had to stop?

It was imported from elsewhere, for instance, Europe, long ago.

I'd like to respectfully submit a request for a rethinking re the rash decision to disallow members tagging rights on thread titles.

I'm sure my point is proven.

As far as we know, it can keep going until the host dies.

"American conservatism" would do a lot of good in many places so we can only hope it spreads far and wide.

@McGentrix,
Perhaps but not in the U S of A. the bottom 80% own 7% of the wealth opposed to 1% with 40% of the wealth. The 1% own more income than the bottom 90%. How do republicans help the 90%?

They don't. They just feed people a bunch of phony "scandals" against the Democrats and that's how they get lower class whites to vote against minimum wage and unions, and how they get older people to vote for a party that has been trying to get rid of Social Security and Medicare for years.

@RABEL222,
A> Educate them in a state sponsored educational system instead of a Federal one.
B> Provide a better economy by encouraging more American employment through tax easements, tariffs on imported goods and provided a little bit of American protectionism.
C> Open interstate commerce for things like health insurance.
D> Provide a path for large companies to bring their wealth back to America and provide better employment for Americans in the lower 80%.
E> Stop providing livelihoods for people. Some people will fail. We can't all be winners in life and no matter what is given to some people, they will work harder at failing than succeeding.

What would you suggest? Slaughter the rich and give the poor their entrails?

@McGentrix,
It's worth noting that free trade was a big part of what led to America's greatness in the 1950s. Our industry was much stronger than the rest of the world's because most of the developed world had just been crippled by a world War. Free trade opened new markets for us to sell to, allowing us to overcome any crises in consumer confidence at home.

@Kolyo,
Times have changed since. We need to look at new ideas and the may involve limiting free trade with America. I have zero issues with an "America First" motto leading an economic recovery. Pretty there aren't many other countries that do not have their own self protection ideas.

@McGentrix,
Name ten ways "American Conservatism' , in its present form, not William F. Buckley Conservatism or even Goldwater Conservatism, would do a lot of good.
Give examples from Wisconsin, Kansas and Oklahoma from the previous eight years.
Show how North Carolina has thrived by utilizing present day principles and say what those principles are because, godknows, I can't figure out what the hell they seek to achieve other than their own greed.

@Joe Nation,
I doubt you and I would agree on what "'American Conservatism' , in its present form" is. You seem to have some preconceptions that I disagree with as I listed them above.

I bet we agree William F. Buckley wouldn't recognize the Conservatism Mike Pence embodies.

@Joe Nation,
I re-read this and nodded my head right along with it. I am pretty sure that Buckley would be far more upset about how National Review treated Trump than anything that is wrong with Conservatism today.

I have no doubt that you will read it and see completely opposite things than what I see in it. I read it and see exactly the things that Trump has laid out.

Why not. Its how the French finally got from under royalty that had screwed them for centuries. Of course the 1% has only screwed us for 36 years so the dumbed down voters may wait until it hits the century mark.
