The atmosphere of the Faith and Freedom Coalition's “Road to Majority 2022” conference in Nashville, Tennessee, this weekend was one of optimism and excitement. This year's topic “Road to Majority” was evident throughout the entire event as conservatives anticipate Republicans becoming the majority in the House and possibly the Senate. Speakers emphasized the importance of slashing Biden's agenda, and are preparing to oust Democrats from their seats in the White House in 2024.
The majority of the discussion was about the war on culture that has intensified over the last two years. The children of parents and teachers were of particular interest, with the majority of the speakers criticizing the so-called progressives for trying to teach students about the culture of public K-12 schools. When Senator. Rick Scott (R-FL) made a point of the GOP's strategy to save America in the face of adversity, he said an easy truism: “Men are men. Women are female. They have two kinds of genders. The scientific community has confirmed that unborn babies are human.”
Scott added that he was convinced of the importance of strong borders, and slammed president Joe Biden for his apparent incompetence. “If Biden cared about this country, he would resign,” Scott declared.
The abortion issue was also a hot subject of debate. Due to the commotion surrounding the Supreme Court's leak of its draft opinion that says Roe v. Wade will be overturned, the debate on abortion was all over the news. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel was able to recall the difficulties her husband and she faced when they had children, and declared that she was “so proud to be with the party that stands for life.”
Of course, president Donald Trump was the main draw, and he delivered an energetic speech during which he blasted his Democratic House Select Jan. 6 Committee, Vice President Mike Pence, indoctrination in schools, as well as the outcomes for the 2020 election. The president also offered a hint about whether he'll run in his place in the White House again in 2024. “One of the most urgent tasks facing the next Republican president — I wonder who that will be,” the former president added as the crowd began to roar with joy. “Would anybody like me to run for president?” He continued, to more cheers.
The incident was just one of many that are likely to spark the base as the nation gets toward the congressional elections where Republicans expect to take back control of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate. Since Democrats have been doing the most during their time in power, it is expected that Republicans can make amends. After the disastrous performance during Biden's administration, they'll need to do a lot to fix it.
