What is conservatism? What is the Republican Party? In the years since Donald Trump headed down that golden escalator, American conservatism has suffered an identity crisis. Is it the party of Ronald Reagan, a party of limited government, low taxes, and free markets? Is it the party of Donald Trump a party of nationalism, xenophobia, and owning the libs?
