Will Party Values Value Social Conservatives? (July 6, 2016)

A political commentator recently predicted that America’s two political parties are being recast between two major themes – nationalism and globalism – and that the Republican Party would no longer care about social issues.

If that proves true, how will social conservatives give voice to their concerns?

One possibility is that a secondary but parallel shift may also be taking place, between those who want a strong national government imposing its will on all the states and those who want to see a revival of states’ rights inherent in the principle of federalism.

An increasing number of Americans are growing tired of having their will dictated by far away Washington bureaucrats and unaccountable federal judges. If more power over domestic policy returns to the states, social conservatives may find state government to be the place where they can be heard.
