Conservatism Is the Problem
What if the problem with your political party is that the policies it advocates are bad?
You can’t fix that problem by “rebranding” the same platform or finding younger, less-white candidates to promote it. You definitely can’t fix it by leaning into your failed policies and becoming more extreme.
The solution is to change your ideology. And that’s exactly what Republicans need to do.
The role of Republicans in this system would be to provide a healthy, needed skepticism about the role and capabilities of government. But the key there, as I discussed yesterday, is “healthy.” Conservatism has committed them to an unhealthy level of objection to the government, forcing them to push policies that harm the public and costing them credibility in the cases when their cautions are actually correct.
