Republicans not Conservatives Control

Reader comment on item: Why Do You American Conservatives Keep Losing?

Submitted by Tom Dundee (United States), Oct 25, 2018 at 14:11

Maria Schmidt's error is in believing that Conservatives and Republicans are interchangeable terms. Republicans, not conservatives control 2 of 3 Branches of the US Government. Some of those Republicans (RINOs - Republicans In Name Only) vote frequently with the Democrats and that prevents a great deal from being accomplished.

For the most part, the 3d Branch is controlled by a very Liberal Judiciary. President Trump may be able to restore the judiciary to where it interprets the law rather than legislates from the bench. A liberal Judiciary and liberal Republicans (RINOs) are stopping President Trump's Agenda.
