The "Conservative" Dilemma of the NeverTrumpster

Date: 05/10/2016

The NeverTrumpster is on the horns of a dilemma, for if Trump is the faux conservative that he claims he is, then so too are presidential candidates that they’ve supported the same. On the other hand, if the latter are conservative, then so too is Trump conservative.

Trump: Rhetoric vs. Record

Date: 07/31/2015
