The American Conservatives is a weekly magazine that brings together conservative voices from across the political spectrum to discuss the issues of the day.
The magazine has been published by HarperCollins since 1986.
Cultural and political conservatives have long had a particular interest in the workings of government.
In his first major speech in Congress in 1961, President John F. Kennedy said, “We have a political party that has been hijacked by a small group of bigots who wish to impose their radical ideas on the country and to dictate to us what we shall do, and what we must do, under their control.”
President Trump has expressed his support for a return to a more traditional approach to government and has vowed to restore the rule of law, a position he has echoed on the campaign trail.
While the conservative movement has grown significantly over the past few decades, many conservative leaders have been reluctant to speak out on political issues, citing the risks of offending the powerful.
In the past, there have been some notable conservative voices who have spoken out about controversial topics.
One of the most notable conservative leaders to speak on the topic was former Vice President Mike Pence, who has said that “it is a mistake to be seen as a political extremist.”
Another notable conservative figure to speak against the Trump administration’s policies is former President Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the Trump campaign had failed “to articulate an alternative agenda” when they lost the 1980 presidential election.
The Conservative Political Action Conference has long been a focal point for conservative activism.
Many conservative commentators have also voiced their support for Trump during his campaign, as well as for his administration.
In February 2018, for example, Fox News’ Sean Hannity called for the resignation of the president, saying that the administration’s “political correctness” and “lack of respect for facts” has created a “false equivalency” between President Trump and former President Barack Obama.
