McConnell "betrays conservatives?" 
 
How about every other American?  A lot of Americans do not consider themselves conservatives.   But they are for free markets, upholding the constitution and limiting government.

Today, the identity of "conservative" is as jumbled and confused as is the identity of "liberal."  Besides which it's self-defeating to make the effort to rein in government a solely conservative cause.  It is not. 
 
We have a 2014 election facing us. We must appeal to an electorate some of whom do not consider themselves conservatives. We are not going to make significant strides if we isolate ourselves into a camp that does not include all Americans.
 
It is more fruitful and more widely inviting if one names the principles that guide us -- such as individual rights, limited government and free markets.  Let the Retrogrades  (AKA "Progressives") yell about their totalitarian goals.  We must come together as Americans for freedom.
 
McConnell, in my judgement, is an careerist politician, an establishment Republican that must be voted out of office. There is a good possibility that he will be.

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
