Thursday night, President Trump made a monumental decision to call off a strike against Iran. After they shot down an American drone Monday, the president said that such a reaction was “not proportional” after learning it would lead to the deaths of around 150 people.

Without a doubt, Trump’s decision was a good one; not killing 150 people is radically better than killing 150 people. But this alone is a far cry from a heroic act and does not clean the blood that already stains his record.

The great economist F.A. Hayek once stated that conservatism is only as good as what it conserves. Traditional American Conservatism is based on Judeo-Christain morals and preserving old American values, as well as valuing constitutionalism and limited government. The Republican Party is the alleged party of conservatism, but most of its members have abandoned it and embraced neoconservatism.

Unlike traditional conservatism, it is unclear what exactly neoconservatives are trying to save. Neoconservatism peaked in the 1990s and 2000s, but it still lingers in today’s politics and is harming America. Moreover, the neoconservative philosophy has plagued most of the 20th century.
