It’s that time of year again—a week of #MAGAWeek2020 posts! This year, I’m kicking off the festivities with America’s youngest and most dynamic president, Theodore Roosevelt.
Roosevelt’s presidency, like that of the similarly charismatic and action-packed Andrew Jackson, is a source of controversy among conservatives. He was very clearly a Progressive Republican, and pushed for some of the measures that have created so many difficulties for conservatives and our nation today. He used the power and influence of his office—his “bully pulpit”—to intervene in the economy, primarily by busting up “trusts,” major monopolistic companies with immense economic and political influence.
In light of the current dominance of Big Tech oligarchs and officious technocrats in the government and private sector, however, conservatives would do well to reassess Teddy Roosevelt’s presidency. While conservatives typically abhor excessive federal activity and intervention, Roosevelt’s robust execution mitigated the worst excesses of the Gilded Age robber barons and renewed the promise of a “Square Deal” for every American. For that reason and more, he should be celebrated for Making America Great Again.
