the night donald trump killed conservatism


all of steve bannon's gibberish about the end of the "administrative state" and the revival of some sort of judeo-christian nationalism cannot overlook fundamental truths about president trump: he has destroyed the remnants of conservatism and the notion of limited government, which makes it all the more peculiar that the supposedly wonkish house speaker paul ryan, r-wis., would be applauding so wildly.as a preliminary matter, let's dispense with the notion that there is such a thing as "social conservatism." trump mentioned no issue supposedly of interest to evangelicals — abortion, gay marriage, religious liberty, etc. there is a reason for that. the social conservative battles by and large have been lost (e.g., gay marriage is never going away).
