Why I Dropped National Review

Joseeph Leatherwood

National Review is kind of like Glenn Beck - they are not really defenders of Liberty anymore and they have lost the influence they once had. They believe they are the National Review of William F. Buckley but they're not ...

I quit subscribing and reading it years ago. I had been a subscriber for many years ... But dropped them when Buckley left and too many "conservatives" in name only - David Frum, Rich Lowery, etc. started writing for the magazine.

I think NR will be shocked when people actually rally behind Trump following this hit piece. NR has actually done Trump a favor. This hit piece is the last act of a desperate magazine seeking to be relevant again.

It will show no one reads or listens to NR anymore - like me - and the way this looks - they will be viewed as an establishment tool and an act of desperation. This is not good for National Review - could be very bad news for the rag that was once a great magazine.

I am not a Trump supporter but for a once proud magazine to stoop to this kind of desperation and tactic (bordering on Alinskyite tactics) is really sad to see. I am a believer in and supporter of Liberty-based systems and constitutional government, but with this hit piece I know longer see NR as a reasoned or rational voice in the debate over who should be the republican nominee.

Sorry, NR this gamble is not going to work or revive your "legend" among Liberty loving Americans.
