Conservatism cannot be a movement that targets groups, it cannot be a movement that cares about the race, gender or class of an individual, it has to be the movement that is beyond identity politics. Conservatives are not leftists, we should not act like them.

Conservatism has to be a movement that promotes American values. Conservatism has to reiterate Lady Liberties words: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” That message is aimed at people in other countries, and it still should be, but the country that we now inhabit has become so unlike the country we once knew that conservatives must become the voice of that country instead.

Conservatives must acknowledge the sins of our countries past without abandoning our values as we clean up our act. Far to often America has thrown the baby out with the bath water when it comes to what we need to do to in order to make this country better. Instead of turning our backs on anything that comes from the past, we must sift through our past, seeking to destroy what was evil and promote what was good.

Conservatives have to acknowledge that evil exists and there are people out there that want to kill us and our friends around the world.

Conservatives need to call upon those who have been ruined by leftists, who are now the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” they are the dependents and they lack independence and true freedom. We must show them that there is a silver lining on the cloud. We must let them know that the answer to their problems is not increasing the size of government and enslaving them even more. Conservatism has to be the movement that seeks to actually solve problems, instead of throwing some money and a couple of incompetent politicians or bureaucrats at a problem in “hopes” that it will be resolved.

That is what conservatives need to be, and that is what will bring victory in November.
