Jeff Sessions Breaks Down the Differences Between America First Nationalism and Neoconservative, Libertarian Ideologies
Former U.S Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions broke down his case for the America First vision during an interview with the American Conservative’s Arthur Bloom, contrasting a nationalist vision with the ideologies promoted by libertarian and neoconservative pundits and legislators. Sessions is currently campaigning to return to the Senate as Alabama’s Senator, a position he held for two decades.
“Aren’t our fundamental goals to make our American people stable, and happy? Our borders, families, tradition and culture have got to be defended. This ideological view that we’re not a nation, we’re an idea- somehow our constitution is supposed to apply worldwide, which is ridiculous- we have borders which we have a right to defend, and create and establish good and healthy conditions for our country- not just for the billionaires. Wages have to go up for working people.”
Sessions has gathered a following of America First patriots for his consistent and often lone pro-American track record as a Senator, having single-handedly stopped at least two major federal amnesty attempts and staking out what is in all likelihood the strongest conservative track record for any Senator or congressman.
Sessions’ potential return to the Senate could serve as a crucial reminder to the Republican Party of the America First vision that President Donald Trump ran on in 2016, a vital message in a political climate in which libertarian and neoconservative ideologues try to revise history and pidgeonhole the President into support of a tired platform that advocates for free markets, wars in the middle east, mass immigration, and the outsourcing of American industry for the profit of major billionaire oligarchs.
