Donald Trump’s election and the Republicans gaining strength in Congress didn’t happen in a vacuum. America is changing and moving in a new direction. We’ve had eight years of liberalism, and America has seen what that means. People are turning away from reliance on the government.

These awesome poll results prove it!

Via Gallup:

Many more Americans have considered themselves politically conservative than liberal since the early 1990s. That remained the case in 2016, when an average of 36% of U.S. adults throughout the year identified themselves as conservative and 25% as liberal.

This is great news! It is no surprise that Trump won! America saw what 8 years of leftists big government policies got us, and they are saying no!

Prudent, small government that actually listens to people while being mindful of the past AND the future!

I’m a proud conservative and believe that government is often times the problem that causes our ills. We have to go back to having power in our communities and our families and not in the hands of some cold bureaucrat a half-country away.

President Trump understand this, the American people are starting to understand this. We have a long way to go, but this is a good sign!

Conservatism doesn’t just mean limited government, it means a reliance on tested ways of the past and a slow and cautious step towards the future. It means understanding the society changes, but not forgetting where we came from.

We have to honor our traditions, our religions, and our families. We have to honor what brought us to this place of prominence. We understand history is moving forward, but we want to make sure that we are moving in a purposeful way that doesn’t change for the sake of change.
