America is no longer a nation in any meaningful sense—because it has neither Europe’s ‘blood and soil’ nationalism, nor a robust ideas-based nationalism.
It will take more than walls and jobs to ‘make America great again.’ We need to return to the philosophies that undergirded the American founding.
Most everything in the Constitution has stood the test of time, but the method for electing the president was the Founders’ biggest error.
Do conservatives need to be ashamed of winning elections by means of the Electoral College that they would not win in a more directly democratic contest? No.
