Josh Hawley is the FUTURE of the GOP
IMO Hawley more than any other politician seems to understand why voters elected Trump and is the person who can best lead a populist conservative movement after Trump. I dont agree with everything he thinks, but i like where his vision and mindset is.

"By Hawley’s own account, some conservatives on Capitol Hill have spent the past three years with their eyes tightly shut, waiting for the Trump era to pass and everything to return to normal. “That’s not going to happen,” he told me in an interview this week. If the Republican Party returns to its pre-Trump ideological defaults—standing up for big business over the middle class, prioritizing free-market principles over social issues—“we’re not going to be a majority party, ever,” he said. “That’s just not the future.”

Hawley, 39, became the youngest member of the Senate after a 2018 upset victory over a powerful Democratic incumbent, Claire McCaskill, and he has quickly vaulted himself to prominence in Washington’s elite conservative circles. Along with Senate Republicans such as Ted Cruz, and ex–Trump-administration officials such as Nikki Haley, his name is frequently floated as a potential lead architect of Trumpism after Trump. His speeches around town, including one he delivered on Tuesday evening while accepting an award at the annual gala of the American Principles Project Foundation, a socially conservative public-policy organization, are bracingly defiant of Republican orthodoxy: He rails against income inequality, condemns the policy deference afforded to corporations, and speaks warmly about the civic value of labor unions. He often talks about the “great American middle” being crushed by the decline of local communities, the winner-take-all concentration of wealth, and the inaccessibility of higher education. And he said that the modern Republican Party’s split over competing impulses toward free-market economics and social conservatism has led some conservatives to ignore the effects of their policies on the middle and working class. “It’s time to do away with that,” he told me."

Did you not listen to Trump's campaign speeches? He never said that explicitly, but he sure did insinuate all of those things.

Trump avoids most social issues.

His strength is because he focuses on the economy, trade, and foreign policy. You know, like the constitution intended to be the focus of Fedgov

Ignoring social issues is a bad strategy in the long term. As stated by both evangelicals and atheists (ironically), Christian values at the very least serve as a backbone to an effective society. I'm not saying government should be heavily involved, but enough to keep some semblance of order. Unchecked degeneracy is why we have many of the issues requiring government spending.

The elections lost by Republicans in both Virginia and Louisiana were at least moderately effected by social issues.

I'm not judging you or others, but I think the misconception lies in that you think everyone shares your perspective in how government should run. The truth is their perspective is forged by their experiences. And those differences translate in opposite political motives.

This is the opposite of reality. Higher education is too accessible. It's why you have tons of kids with college degrees which they can't pay the loans for. Less accessibility might lead to less unpaid loans.

Uh, wrong. Unless abortion is no longer a social issue. Trump has been the most pro-life president we have had and it is not even close.
