If there is one thing we have maintained, it’s that Donald Trump remains not a disease but a symptom of what’s wrong with our political landscape. This compulsion to “own the libs” and to try to shout down the opposition isn’t healthy. It’s frightening.

But, for conservatives to look to the Democratic Party, which is trending deep into socialist territory, and think that perhaps our salvation lies there is to have become so lost in your obsession with Donald Trump that you can no longer call yourself with any degree of accuracy a conservative.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, and a growing number of Democratic candidates are proof that the older, more moderate Democrats are losing sway in their party. To give a party that is growing even more leftward by the minute power now because you don’t like the currently Republican president is absolutely insane.
