Recently, while giving an online lecture to the Federalist Society, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito stated how COVID-19 restrictions have been a type of “stress test” for the constitution. I believe that is most evident in mandated lockdowns.
Some would think that a 19 year old could not possibly have the wisdom or qualifications to claim that they have the recipe to save the GOP. But I believe the Republican Party has aged so much in my lifetime that I can speak to the outdated ideology it represents today. While the GOP may maintain the Senate, win back a few seats in the house, and maybe even retain the executive seat this year, the party’s platform and what it stands for can’t continue to remain stagnant when society has drifted more and more to the left.
