The People Most Outraged By My Decision

This tells you everything you need to know about politics in America today. I have received emails from some who consider themselves conservatives, but they dislike the President and now are upset by me. I think that is understandable. There are going to continue to be conservative Christians who won’t support the President and I totally understand that.

But none of them are angry. A few have said they will no longer financially support The Resurgent. I understand that too.

However, none of them are particularly outraged. They are disappointed.

The real anger comes from progressives. They classified me as a “reasonable conservative” where “reasonable” meant I would never vote for Donald Trump. By saying I will be voting for him, I am now suddenly an “unreasonable” conservative. And therein lies the problem.

To be a reasonable conservative, one must either abandon conservatism or otherwise be useful to the left by opposing the President. If you are in my shoes, get used to all the new found concern for your career, brand, opinion, influence, etc.

At least we can all now be sure that reasonableness for much of the left is tied to opposing Donald Trump and anyone who might vote for him is unfit for consideration by the left. That, of course, says way more about the left than about anyone who would support the President.

The moral of the story here is to do what you think is right and not worry about what people on the internet think.
