Conservatism is not a party, it s a principal. The reason conservatives are dying are due to multiple factors:
1)The media paints every republican as a conservative, when the truth is that very very few conservatives get elected into our govt.
2) The republican party has been trying to destroy the conservatives within their own party since George Bush the first (and before reagan, but lets keep it within the last 30 yrs). Hell they will run ads for the dems to try and keep conservatives out of public office locally.
3) Our education system pretends that crony capitalism is the same thing as real capitalism and thus paints it in a very bad light.
Also it is NOT only for social issues that conservatives want a conservative president. On the contrary, it's definitely more fiscal in purpose.
Now you want to push Trump the KING, and I mean king of crony capitalism, the very thing that is helping to destroy real conservatism. Buying and selling politicians is his bag baby. Trump wants to keep spending crazy amounts of money and not really do much for taxes. He wants to sell off parts of America to foreign nations to pay the debt off.
So what could go wrong? Oh everything. The death of conservatism, the establishment of a new republican party that is focused on big govt. And the continuation of the death spiral debt.
