The Death of Conservative Voters and American Ideals

For the first 120 years of young America, there were no real conservative or liberal voters. There were differing political parties and ideologies but their differences were far different than the differences we see between political parties today. The main division in the early days was whether power should be held by the individual states or the newly formed federal government. The states won out in the beginning, resulting in the drafting and ratification of the 10th Amendment, which reads:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Some believe that the concept of the 10th Amendment basically ended with the horrific Civil War that ripped America in half and resulted in the bloodiest war in our nation’s history. Once the Confederacy surrendered to the Union, there was no doubt that the power now rested with the federal government and not the states, ending the concept behind the 10th Amendment.

By 1900, a new and dangerous political ideology began to arise within American politics and this new ideology forever changed the face of American politics. This was when the real rise of progressives, also known as liberals, surfaced and began to challenge the very foundational principles America was founded upon.

Elections from that point on became a battle between conservatives who wanted to protect those moral and right foundations and the progressives who wanted to eliminate all of those moral foundations that made America the great and powerful nation it had become.

Over the last 120 years, the political landscape of America has waffled back and forth between conservative and liberal rule. The progressives made their first great push to change America under the 12-year term of progressive Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Even though FDR made great strides in destroying the foundations of America, many of those traditional and moral foundations remained intact, that is until 2009 when socialist Barack Hussein Obama began his 8-year reign of socialism. Obama was the first progressive to openly attack and destroy the foundational principles that America was founded upon.

His open attacks led to a resurgence of conservative voters who saw what was happening to the nation and made their collective voices heard at the polls. In 2010, conservative voters won the House elections and gave control of the House back to Republicans, considered to be the more conservative political party. In 2014, conservatives again spoke loudly at the polls when they voted to give control of the Senate to Republicans.

In 2016, conservatives weren’t quite as loud, but did manage to give the White House to a someone who represented more of their conservative values, but their voices were not loud enough to maintain control of the House.

Sadly, every year, America is losing more and more of its conservative voters as they age and die. If you look at many sources, you will see that the older generation is the most conservative while the youngest generation is the most liberal and socialist. As the Baby Boomers continue to die off, America will continue to lose its lifesaving conservative voters. At the same time, the socialist driven public education system continues to pump out brainwashed young comrades who will be the ones to finalize the socialist conversion of America, which many conservatives also see as the death of United States of America.

  1. It will be the death of the United States. Our country will be destroyed because of it. Not just morally but physically. The younger generations have no understanding of what their beliefs are doing to them. Kruschev stated “I will bury your children in communism”. It is coming true. The most important truth though is that Jesus will soon come for his church and take his people out. When this happens, the rest of the people can expect hail and brimstone to fall upon them. That is when they will wish they had listened to us older people.

  2. Saw this coming 40 years ago, right after Kent State. All I can say is that the feckless, pusillanimous pipsqueaks will get exactly what they deserve! Too bad for my grandson. By the way, they will bring the gas chambers back. It is the inevitable consequence of socialism. Perhaps then, they will overcome their delusion. It, of course, will be much too late.

    We need Donald Trump to shake up the status quo, and make America great again, and not 5he Democratic party in Washington. Where graft has run untethered for years.

    • Trump is the most corrupt SOB in washington and from what I have seen the last 3 years none of the Republicans believe In the constitution or the rule of law .the GOP have become the party of graft and corruption

  4. This article represents a push for more fear that doesn’t exist. The 2016 election of Donald Trump proves that a change in America has begun to steer in the right direction. There is a socialist movement, but in time it will fade into history.
    This article concerning the conservative voter isn’t exactly true. 12to16 % of democratic voters will vote for our existing President for re-election in 20/20.
    Not saying that they are all conservatives, but who really knows? It’s a bouncy political ball.

    • DONALD J. TRUMP was sent by GOD to stop the killing of our babies. If this does not happen soon, GOD will end it with the 2nd coming of JESUS. There will be no place to hide, we will all answer for our sins.

      • JESUS DIED FOR MY SIN ….you..my mother…the Christian Church didn not died for sins. The God of the BIBLE GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE …GOOD OR BAD.. Joshua 24:15 And if it seems evil to you serve the Lord…Choose this day whom you will serve.

        Matthew 7:1 JESUS TOLD THE CHRISTIANS OF THAT DAY NOT TO JUDGE AND CRITICIZED. He told you to LOVE OTHERS NOT TO HATE …LOVE THE SINNER AND HATE THE SIN …I know homosexual is wrong JESUS DIED FOR THERE SINS NOT YOU OR ME…And the CHRISTIAN WRONG PUT A LYING KING… A PUSSY GRABBING (his words not mine) CHAMPION OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

        All to stop a woman from choosing after your book gave them the right to choose …GOOD OR BAD. And the christian wrong got behind RUSSIA TO HELP trump…because you know TRUMP WORKS FOR RUSSIA …

        You all are TRAITORS TO THE USA AND YOU BETRAYED YOUR GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS COMMAND TO BE A WITNESS TO THIS WORLD to show love to all and give to people help others MAKE THE WORLD BETTER …But what you did was to cause people to HATE YOUR BOOK…AND become russians

        NO MORE PATRIOT PARTY …JUST THE RUSSIAN PARTY … NRA..REPUBLICANS CHRISTIAN WRONG…do you see what happens when YOU DISOBEY YOUR BOOK

      • You have obviously been drinking the koolaid .do you really think he gives a shit about your unborn babies or you for that matter all he cares about is your vote .and you are obviously stupid enough to give it

  5. You are exactly right, Chainlink. As the world has demonstrated time after time, socialist policies always destitute the poor. Why is that? Because there must be a ruling class, of course, and the “ruling class” make the socialist rules and then forces them down the throat of the “subjects”. In a voting society, the populace usually eventually “wakes up” to what is happening.

    There is absolutely no threat from outside the boundaries of the U.S. Russia has an economy that is smaller than Greece’s. China is a one trick pony. The threat is inside and like the killer ants that were supposed to migrate from south and consume us, over time the threat becomes more and more domesticated. Those who are liberal today will be old some day and become conservative.

    Even

    • Well I am old and am not conservative nor liberal meaning I can think for myself and with what I have seen the last 3 years I will never vote for a Republican for any office .

  6. USA WILL BE DESTROYED BECAUSE OF WHITE RACISM. trump AND HIS ADMINISTRATION AND SUPPORTERS ARE ALL WHITE RACISTS AND THEY ARE DYING OUT. THEY ARE ACTIVELY TRYING TO DESTROY THE NATION BEFORE THEY DIE. THEY HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN TRYING TO EXTERMINATE ALL THE AFRO AMERICANS FOR DECADES. NOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN A BI RACIAL PRESIDENT AND EUROPEANS ARE A MINORITY IN THE USA THEY FEEL THE WORLD IS ENDING.

    • Thomas Matthews, you are wrong with your racial rant. The USA will be destroyed if we stop following God, stop following and defending the Constitution, don’t continue to elect constitutional judges and representatives, believe the lying alphabet news media and believe we are victims. The white supremacists are a small fringe group and will not wipe out blacks. But what is working against them, and I guess you, are Planned Parenthood and the welfare state mentality. Dr. Ben Carson, Candice Owens, the CEO of BET and others have proven blacks can succeed in America. I’ve worked with blacks who blame themselves and not whites for their lack of progress. Under Barack Obama, more blacks were on food stamps than ever before, which is not progress. More minorities are employed under Pres. Trump than ever. I believe in one race, the human race, created by God, with everyone mattering. All the racial hatred and racial supremacy stuff is man-made and destructive if believed and spread.

    • AMEN SIR …THIS IS WHAT I JUST SAID

      JESUS DIED FOR MY SIN ….you..my mother…the Christian Church didn not died for sins. The God of the BIBLE GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE …GOOD OR BAD.. Joshua 24:15 And if it seems evil to you serve the Lord…Choose this day whom you will serve.

    • You know where to pack it, Tommy. Most commenters won’t say it, but I will. You truly are my blood enemy.

  7. Well . . . Get to know your neighbor! A good conservative is NOT in name only but in action and truth. Inform the “low information Voter” on the issues. A WELL INFORMED voter is a Conservative voter. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

    • JoeyP, you are 100% right. Pres. Trump has proven he knows how to run a country. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats also have proven they are incapable of running the House, except into the ground. The GOP Must retake the House and return to doing the work of the American people, not just oversight, the agenda of the Left, the Democratic Party, George Soros and the lying alphabet media. 2020 might be our last chance to preserve constitutional America.

    • YEAH RIGHT… KEEP AMERICA RACIST AND RUSSIAN

      JESUS DIED FOR MY SIN ….you..my mother…the Christian Church didn not died for sins. The God of the BIBLE GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE …GOOD OR BAD.. Joshua 24:15 And if it seems evil to you serve the Lord…Choose this day whom you will serve.

    • Well informed by the likes of Alex Jones? Or Rush Limbaugh? Or hannity or all the rest of the right wing liars .perhaps you should watch real news sometime and stop listening to lunatics that just scare you into voting for morons like trump

  8. The ideas of Karl Marx, Charles Darwin, Margaret Sanger and the 19th century German philosophers all have contributed to the progressive/socialist agendas which have been reshaping our constitutional republic. Can we keep it, as Ben Franklin challenged the early Americans? Yes, if we continue to defend the U.S. Constitution and its values, and elect judges and lawmakers who do the same. But if we ignore the results of tyrannical socialists/communist countries and other dictatorships, we could easily lose our “noble experiment” and become just another “Roman empire” which rose, prospered and then fell. Ronald Reagan said if we give up our freedoms, we will never get them back.

  9. The conservative of today is NOTHING like the conservatives of the Reagan Era. I lived through the cold war with the USSR and Vietnam, and was living during the McCarthy era. I thank God for the young people who are turning their backs on this “conservatism” of today. YOU ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES! You have no problem with a President who worships and lies in bed with dictators like Putin and Erdogan who ARE Communists. Putin wants nothing more than to resurrect the old USSR and with Trumps help he is doing it. You have no problem with a President who turns his back on our allies and explodes the debt to benefit millionaires like him. As a supposed Christian you are not because you have no problem turning your backs on the sick, the poor, children, the old, and immigrants who need our help. You worship the phony Trump God who is nothing but a lying, corrupt, amoral, follower of Satan, the supreme liar, deceiver, and destroyer. If you want to look for an Antichrist you need to look no further than the White House. Trump is destroying our Constitution and our Country and anyone who follows and believes in him is no Christian and is NO CONSERVATIVE!

  10. Nowhere in this post do I see specified what these great founding principles are that Liberals are destroying. In fact today’s liberals and “socialists” promote an agenda similar to Eisenhower’s. The concepts of social justice and responsible government are not antithetical to the foundation of democracy, quite the opposite.
    If any older conservatives are concerned about the liberal views of their children and grandchildren, I suggest asking them why they feel the way they do and LISTEN to their concerns. Until fairly recently, youth voters were pretty disengaged. What could have happened?
    Remember it was the youth of the Baby Boomer generation that lead the opposition to the Vietnam war and eventually ended it. What are oldsters afraid of other than boogeymen? Wake up.

  11. No one ever gave me anything except my family and that was support and love. I started working at age 12, earned my way through college ending my education with three graduate degrees.
    As a young man, socialist doctrines held no interest for me because they reward the lazy. Oh, we all know of the inroads that discipline has made upon our society during the 20th century, many of them, necessary, such as Social Security, Medicaid and other gov’t. programs.
    However, the outlandish programs espoused by charlatans, i.e. Warren, Sanders, that all are entitled to free medical care, free college educations demonstrate how out of touch with true Americans they are. Race has nothing to do with opposition to their idiocy.
    Minorities in the USA have been sold down the river by the very people who supposedly act as spokespersons. Look at the pathetic careers, stumbles and pratfalls of Gordon Mason, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, all media whores who exploited their own race.
    Democrats pander to the unwary and the undereducated in order to swell voter rolls so they can initiate agendas that will ultimately erase our heritage and our nation as we know it.
    They will succeed because our society grows more urbanized each decade. With said urbanization, intellectual euthanization follows.
    In time, we’ll author our own destruction as all of history’s dynasties have done.

  12. There’s always an aging group from the middle age who wise up and that’s what has to be measured. It’s the famous Churchill maxim you’ve heard We have to penetrate the African American and Latino community which I think will increase in time–especially with Trump this year. Kanye West is a ray of hope.

  13. This will boil down to America becoming a banana republic totally destroyed by Socialism and become RULED by RABID Communists posing as Democrats.Another Maduro will arise from the party and many thousands will DIE

  14. Just wondering; what is the ratio of conservatives versus liberals when it comes to serving our country in the military? The same question pertains to the people volunteering to join the police. Lie-berals are USELESS !!! They have the Look-At-Me-See-How-Nice-I-Am Syndrome AND ARE FUGITIVES FROM TRUTH.

  15. One factual correction: The progressive movement started long before FDR. His cousin Teddy Roosevelt was the first progressive President. President Wilson was even worse than Roosevelt.

  16. Babes is correct as history repeats and the decadent destroy the country. I am glad to be old and not have to see the country as it is destined to become. The well known newscaster George Putnam before his death thought this would happen. Then entitled and ME generation will prevail with no certain future .
