American conservatism defend Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism and authoritarianism

The unemployment rate for the black people in America is at a historic low, and this is happening under President Donald Trump. The big loser in this game seems to be the Democratic Party. According to Candace Owens, the Democratic party will see a major exit by black voters leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and activist. She is known for her pro-Trump commentary, and criticism of Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party. Conservative in the U.S is not the same as we know it in Europe and Asia. So, what is it?

First of all; the man who is best known for being conservative in the Republican Party is Ronald Reagan. He spoke from the Oval Office, outlining his plan for tax reduction in July 1981. Now, Mr Trump is doing exactly the same.

But the word conservative is often used very different from the way it is used in Europe and Asia. Following the American Revolution, Americans rejected the core ideals of European conservatism; those ideas were based on the landed aristocracy, established churches, and powerful armies.

American conservatism is a broad system of political beliefs in the United States that is characterized by respect for American traditions, republicanism, support for Judeo-Christian values, moral absolutism, and a defence of Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism, authoritarianism, and moral relativism.

Liberty, economic freedom, social conservatism, and promotion of Judeo-Christian ideals are core beliefs, with a particular emphasis on strengthening the free market, limiting the size and scope of government in the economy, and opposition to high taxes and government or labor union encroachment on the entrepreneur.

American conservatives consider individual liberty, within the bounds of conformity to American values, as the fundamental trait of democracy, which contrasts with modern American liberals, who generally place a greater value on equality and social justice.

American conservatism originates from republicanism, which rejected aristocratic and monarchical government based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence of 1776, which stated that

“All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

In 1789, the Constitution of United States established a Federal Republic under the rule of law. All major American political parties are based on these two documents. Conservative activists to this day occasionally dress in costumes from the Revolutionary era and celebrate revolutionary episodes such as the Boston Tea Party.

Conservative philosophy also has continuity to the classical liberal tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries, which advocated for laissez-faire economics, also called economic freedom and deregulation.

The conservative movement of the 1950`s attempted to bring together these divergent strands, stressing the need for unity to prevent the spread of “godless communism.”

Through much of the 20th century, a primary force uniting the varied strands of conservatism, and uniting conservatives with liberals and socialists, was opposition to communism, which was seen not only as an enemy of the traditional order, but also the enemy of Western freedom and democracy.

Thus it was the British Labour government, which embraced socialism, that pushed the Truman administration in 1945-1947 to take a strong stand against Soviet Communism.

In the 21th century United States has different types of conservatism, which is first of all; Christian conservatism. They are primarily interested in family values. Fiscal conservatism focuses on low taxes and restrained government spending.

Neoconservative is a modern form of conservatism that supports a more assertive, interventionist foreign policy, aimed at promoting democracy abroad. It is tolerant of an activist government at home, but is focused mostly on international affairs.

The 1980`s and beyond became known as the «Reagan Era.» Typically, conservative politics and spokesmen in the 21st century proclaim their devotion to Reagan`s ideals and policies on most social, economic and foreign policy issues.

Now, we are living in a “Trump Era.” Some say it is Populism, but I will rather call it “Trumpism.”

Donald J Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States

It is a pivotal day today as Donald J Trump will be sworn in as the 45 president of the United States. Trump will start his first day at the white house with the lowest approval rating in many decades.

50% voted for Donald J Trump. Are 50% of the American people stupid? What we know is that people are angry, and that is why many of them voted for Trump. Trump said in his speech last night that this is a movement.

He called CNN for «fake news». He is attacking CIA and are against the establishment. This is something that remind us about John F Kennedy. When we look at the history, we know that Donald J Trump have to be very careful. He can be assassinated.

John F Kennedy talked about the same group of people. He was referring to a shadow government, and in one of his speeches he said:

«We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tight net highly efficient machine that combines military diplomatic intelligence economic scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised».

John F Kennedy talked about the secret society which is the same group of people Donald J Trump talks about. The secret society has no traditions or any religion, and they own the media as it is today.

John F Kennedy was assassinated 22 November 1963 in Dallas, Texas, but he is not the only one. William McKinley was assassinated 14 September 1901, six month into his second term. There is something scary here. Take a good look at the scheme below.

 

President nr 25 William McKinley Assassinated

President nr 35 John F Kennedy Assassinated

President nr 45 Donald J Trump ?

 

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth on Good friday, April 14, 1865. He was the 16th president of the United States. Lincoln was a religious skeptic, and he was a classical liberal democrat. An enemy of artificial hierarchy, a friend to trade and business as ennobling and enabling, and an American counterpart to Mill, Cobden, and Bright.

In surveys of U.S scholars ranking presidents conducted since the 1940`s, Lincoln is consistently ranked in the top three, often as number one. In presidential ranking polls conducted in the United States since 1948, Lincoln has been rated at the very top in the majority of polls.

President Lincolns assassanation increased his status to the point of making him a national martyr. Lincoln was viewed by abolitionists as a champion for human liberty. Republicans linked Lincolns name to their party, and many consider him to a man of outstanding ability. We also know John F Kennedy`s popularity, and he will never be forgotten. What about Donald J Trump? Will he fail and be forgotten?
