Is the morality of elected officials our best indicator of good political policy? John Kasich weighs in on the state of American politics, and produces abysmal conclusions. It is always fascinating to watch the thought process of an out-of-touch establishment politician. Enjoy the Podcast!
Nice podcast! While listening, it also gave me ideas on how to weigh in the candidates that I should elect. Thank you and welcome to Political Storm!
Jon Saltzman said: Great post CA! The Democratic Party is destructive, particularly in their identity politics which drive us all apart. I'd like to know what they are actually proposing as an alternative to Conservative policies? It's hard to make an argument when you're angry all the time. I also loved your point about not looking up to politicians or expecting perfect character from them. One of the great things that the Trump Presidency will do is separate the Person from the policy.
The Democratic Party is becoming a leftist party. Donald Trump and the Republicans (imperfect as they may be) are the only forces that are keeping us from becoming Canada or Germany. To be more dramatic, a victorious Democratic Party will fundamentally change the United States, which will have been the last stand of Western Civilization. Keeping this perspective, are we going to continue to elect a Democrat over a privately flawed Republican? Conservatives who say yes are morally confused. Thank you for listening!
Thank you for tuning in!
Pat Greer said: Yeah these are officials dedicated to serve the public. It's a tough role to have and one that requires a tremendous amount of sacrifice...so not everyone's cut out for it.
Very much agree. It is also unrealistic to expect esteemed moral character in our elected officials. An essential tenet of Conservatism is skepticism of government, and by extension, its politicians.
Welcome to Political Storm! This is a piece! Look forward to your next podcast!
