Why real conservatives will vote Republican on Tuesday

Since before President Trump took office, the Democratic base has been in a state of perpetual frenzy. And as next Tuesday's midterm congressional elections have drawn nearer, the Left's fervor has grown ever more radical and vociferous. Perhaps that was to be expected, but what was less easily predicted is that many leading figures in this crusade to elect Democrats call themselves conservatives.

There can be reasonable debate over whether a conservative ought to vote for Trump, either in 2016 or in 2020. There are also a few places were there is a decent case to be made that conservatives should not support Republican candidates. But if anyone tells you that conservatives should want Democrats to control Congress, that person is either deluded or a con artist.

No one who cares about liberty or who is in any way socially conservative should want Chuck Schumer running the Senate or Nancy Pelosi again running the House. No conservative in their heart of hearts really believes the country needs to keep Sens. Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, and their ilk in the upper chamber. Only an enthusiast for the leftist big government, censorship, activist judges, subsidized abortion on demand, state-directed corporatism, and radical, government-imposed social transformation would desire the elevation of Beto O’Rourke and Kyrsten Sinema.

Most importantly, conservatives need a Republican Senate to confirm jurists to the federal courts who are committed to interpreting the law rather than inventing it. If Democrats control the upper chamber they will refuse to confirm anyone Trump nominates to the Supreme Court. They would also block almost all Trump nominees to federal appellate courts. The president may not even be allowed to fill vacancies on the lower federal courts.

The single biggest and worst consequence of a Democratic takeover of the Senate would be to keep conservative, texualist judges off the court.
