As a strategy, it makes perfect sense. You can best advance an agenda of Reaganite economics, authoritarian nationalism, and conservative social values by putting the least emphasis on the first of those three points, and even by dressing it up as its opposite

We need visionary leaders with very big and bold ideas. America is a very big, very bold country

What are you talking about?

The economy is great, why there is no recession at all.

And who needs fossil fuels?

In fact, American can't get enough of the DNC.

You are just jealous.

They have become the Republican’t Party

No agenda of their own, they just want to block anything from being done.

Lower taxes is sufficient to fill the needs of the shallow mindset.

And most of any other priorities are unmentionable due to the cover needed over Trump's fascist ambitions. Can you suggest 'anything' that would be consistent with upholding democracy?

idea#1: conservatives must champion rural America. That means standing up for family-owned, independent farmers!

They will usually pretend that they don't acknowledge the challenge. Or at the least respond with spamming and profanity.

Neglecting the big cities and letting them turn to rubble. That's good for America.

And standing up for white families as is a main tenet of fascism.

idea #2: we need to give Medicare the ability negotiate drug prices and cap out-of-pocket costs.

idea #3: the FDA moved need to make basic medicine like hearing aids over the counter.

These are game-changers!

Okay, okay. Big ideas… How’s this? Humanity hasn’t made any long lasting monuments that will be marveled at long after their creators are gone, in a thousand years, or so.
So this is what we do. We endeavor to make a “world wonder” the likes of which have never been seen, and will out last all that came before. We sent fleets of automated drone bulldozers to the moon, programmed to to carve a “Nazca Lines” type eye, into the earth facing side of the moon.
This will cement our place in history, and will outlast any structure or feature on earth.

And as a side bonus it will really fuck with the heads of any intelligent beings that come after us.:auiqs.jpg:

They are all a bunch of whiney regressives.

Affordable energy and gas, affordable food, can't afford to feed and shelter your family, blah blah, blah.

Does not get much more whiney than that.

The last big idea to come from republicans, (Conservatives.........my ass, but they did get the first 3 letters right) was Eisenhower with the Interstate highway system.
Everything to help the US people or the country itself was blocked by republicans.

It's been nothing but corporate tax cut agenda for them, since Reagan..........and still is.
So, 40 years later, they STILL think the government is the "enemy"?
The system is broken.
But, since then, WTF have they done to FIX it?
Whine about the "gubmint" get in office and do......................................................................?
40 years and not only haven't done a damned thing, but now want to get rid of it all together.

The big idea behind lower taxes is smaller government, but they are all too pussified to talk about that, let alone do anything about it. It’s actually the primary big idea that attacks the root of most problems with the government. Unfortunately, Republicans act like lowering the rate of increase of government bloat is a praiseworthy accomplishment. This is alos a weak area for Trump.

It’s not your grandfather’s America anymore. And because of that, the political solutions of your grandfather’s America aren’t going to work anymore. The modern conservative movement must get used to using power aggressively if it wants to survive.
