    MAGA is a political slogan that means little more than "go team."

    Trump's legacy will be that he increased xenophobic sentiment somewhat and popularized vulgarity somewhat; otherwise things will be unchanged.

    There's no great movement here. And I don't mean that there's a movement and I don't like it. I mean it doesn't exist. It's hot air, nothing.

    The GOP will continue to be the other big government party, the bright lights and loud noises of the Trump era notwithstanding.

    Or split the party.
    We have to deal with the fact that the Republican Party was only Conservative in the 1920s-1950s.
    Bad Presidents like Lincoln,Teddy Roosevelt & George H W Bush are Heroes for most Republican voters.
    Even to this Day about 50% of republicans think the Iraq war was a great idea.
    If we want to make the Republican Party a better Party we should vote them all out except Rand Paul,Mike Lee,Thomas Massie & maybe Gaetz.
    But this is just a pipe dream!

    Republicans haven't pushed for smaller government since Calvin Coolidge's presidency.

    so,,, Are there any Conservative Democrats to throw a wrinkle in this??

    Because I see the democrats electing Trump for another term.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
