In this episode I speak with Wendy Long. Wendy is the nominee of the Republican, Conservative, and Reform Parties for United States Senate in New York. She is running against the man she calls Corrupt Chuck Schumer – a man who has never held a private sector job.
Wendy is a Northwestern & Harvard trained lawyer who clerked on the United States Supreme Court for Justice Clarence Thomas. She is also a wife and a home school mom who is sick of business as usual politicians bankrupting our country and making the American Dream nothing but a memory. Wendy is a personal friend of Ted Cruz but she broke with him in order to support Donald Trump for President.
I’ll let Wendy speak for herself:
But I’m running on the Trump Ticket (secure borders, rule of law, American jobs, rebuilding our military, and America First in foreign policy) for U.S. Senate in New York, a blue state that Reagan won in the last major political realignment, before the GOP became a cup of weak tea.
For years, while we suffered under “compassionate conservatism” and a “kinder, gentler” GOP, private citizen Donald Trump talked about Americans losing jobs and income, about China beating us on trade, about the nonsense of government bureaucrats running our nation into the ground with debt and dysfunction, about our military being weakened and our veterans abandoned, and about Common Core failing our children.
On these fundamental issues, he was practically a lone voice. He’s been right on all of them. He has also been a lone voice on European Muslim ghettos and Christian genocide in the Middle East — even though it was politically incorrect to say so. While he’s at it, he’s on a mission to defeat political correctness itself, which will be a giant step forward for our country.
Grassroots and GOP county leaders in New York hoped Trump would run for governor of the state two years ago and get rid of the corrupt Cuomo machine that is running the Empire State into the ground. We were disappointed when he chose not to, but then we saw he had plans to do what we had hoped — for the whole country.
The two major parties in America have become empty vessels for whoever is in power. The Democratic Party has migrated to the far left to try to capture voting blocs by selling a false bill of goods that America is sexist, racist, xenophobic, and blinded by every other kind of bigotry.
Like me, Wendy was a Publius Fellow of the Claremont Institute. She has a deep and abiding love for this country and for the principles and institutions that made it great. She wants to make it great again. And we had a great – that’s right great! – discussion that starts around minute 44. But the whole show – a discussion of the meaning and history of American conservatism – led up to it.
