I doubt it is ever really going to come back, but 'fascism' being used as just a synonym for 'evil' has people entirely lost on what it actually is, was meant to be, and how it is rapidly becoming mainstream in the actual ideological sense rather than the pejorative 'hate minorities and kill people' sense. Fascism was the middle ground between Capitalism and Communism, to the point where the connections became entirely explicit: FDR praised Mussolini's Fascism, Mussolini praised FDR and considered New Deal politics to be largely fascist-and they were, not meaning that they were evil, but that they fit the ideological mold. 'Stakeholder capitalism' is fundamentally fascist economics, and the closest U.S. analogue to a fascist politician is probably Elizabeth Warren, with her notions of bringing private corporations under the umbrella of government to direct themselves towards what she considers to be the national interest: and to show how the right is doing the same, Tucker Carlson is largely similar, as is Josh Hawley. An American fascist is Elizabeth Warren's economics, possibly with, though not necessarily needing, a dash of John McCain on the side.
Conservatism bears the fundamental weakness of being cautious and institutionalist, which is not surprising, since those are their hallmarks, but in the perpetual struggle between the radical and the gradual, it puts them at an intrinsic disadvantage in that conservative losses are permanent, they are stubborn on the defense, but when the line breaks, it breaks, because, as you note with Obamacare, there's a unwillingness to take drastic action to return to the status quo. You instead see very cautious uses of power while in power, and incremental moves back, which will then be wiped out entirely by the next leap forward from the progressive side.
It is a valid and sobering point to raise the question: In the last fifty years, what exactly have conservatives conserved? It is not so much that politics has been a give-and-take, but that it has solely been a taking, and the only 'victories' that could be found are in ties, the 'victory' of a stalemate. William F. Buckley said "A Conservative is a fellow who is standing athwart history yelling 'Stop!'", and conservatives have taken that to heart-but it fundamentally does not work, and I think Buckley is wrong, in that he is advancing a fundamentally European notion of what conservatism is. American conservativism is different in that, while like European conservatism it seeks to preserve structures of the past, the European structures being preserved are aristocratic, 'conservative' themselves, but America seeks to conserve the Constitution, the single greatest liberal and outright revolutionary governing document ever conceived. Current conservatism is just being the brake pads while liberals are driving the car, and it can go nowhere from that, America cannot be Europe. The only path forward for conservatism in America is to adopt the methods of the radical and the progressive in order to return to the conservative founding principle. If 'conservative' just means 'gradual' there is not any future, it has to mean something more.
I always thought it was weird what it means for something to be a "country". For instance, England, Wales, Scotland and N. Ireland are all countries according to Wikipedia, but wikipedia also says the UK is a country. I have heard the EU (made up of technically sovereign nations) being compared to the US (common market and i think they have open borders. I think some want to even create a military, though I actually dont even think the EU is a defensive pact) or being called a "super state". On the other hand, our states have less sovereignty (but they do handle, or are constitutionallly supposed to handle, almost all issues not related to foreign policy/defense). The Civil war kind of established the precedent that "states" werent allowed to secede: I suppose that would be the difference between a country and a dependent semi-sovereign 'state'. To be honest, I think secession is probably constitutional (if states joined the Union voluntary, i would assume they could leave). I wonder when the British gave many of their colonies full sovereignty and stopped taxing them. For instance, I dont know how Canada went from a British colony to being considered a sovereign country which owes allegiance to the British head of state. There was actually an invitation for Canada to join the union in the articles of confederation: "Canada acceding to this confederation, and adjoining in the measures of the United States, shall be admitted into, and entitled to all the advantages of this Union; but no other colony shall be..."

Wow, Ben shapiro called Ron Paul "alt right" somehow. Annoying neo cons. There isnt anything special about you anymore Benny Boo you are an adult. He is gonna go get his cheerleading outfit for the middle east wars. He annoys me. "Hey Im ben shapiro i talk really fast so everyone thinks im smart" and have a really weird voice
Shapiro is extremely touchy on Israel, which is not surprising, even if it can get somewhat annoying. I don't think it discredits him, I think he's a legitimate conservative with a mostly solid and sincerely held intellectual basis, who generally does a better job of speaking to the ideology rather than just partisanship. He's imperfect, does a bit too much of tweaking his message and presentation to appeal to his audience, and can succumb to the identity politics he criticizes when it comes to real or perceived anti-semitism, but I think he is still one of the better voices on the right today.
Well country is a distinctly weird word period. If you look up its history it has no implication of being a political organization until extremely modern times, instead it was a loose term for a coherent land around a given city, castle (similar to the word county, but more based on natural geography): https://www.etymonline.com/word/country#etymonline_v_19172
It's a bit like a metropolitan statistical region today rather than a nationstate.
For you question about the British colonies, it kind of depends what you mean. All British colonies, from the beginning, were substantially independent, ours included. It is no stretch to say that the 13 colonies were each substantially more independent and self-governing than states in our union today or Scotland/Wales/N. Ireland in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland currently.
Most early independence-advocates simply wanted "liberty and union" within the existing system of the British monarchy, it was only later that more and more became revolutionary (Benjamin Franklin is a good example of this). https://www.newenglandhistoricalsociety.com/before-old-glory-there-was-the-taunton-flag/
Canada gained legislative assemblies, endorsed by Parliament, in 1791. The modern Canadian government was more-or-less established by the 1867 Constitution Act. I know of no instance of actual British taxation in Canada before independence, but if it existed it was insubstantial (just like in the 13 colonies).
Speaking of Canada, some disturbing news from Aawia's neck of the woods: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-56910393
Got my vaccine booked! I have 2 chronic conditions so I'm able to sneak in early, and while I hope I'm not pushing anyone else out, I will gladly get it now that I can. I trusted my doctors with my life when they were operating on my heart 7 years ago, I will trust them now.
I will also comment briefly on the morality of the fetal cell issue. Most vaccines themselves contain no fetal tissue, but the tissue was used during the development of these vaccines, or later on to test many of these vaccines. However, these were cells taken in the 70s and 80s and that are now grown in labs from these original cells. Were those abortions immoral tragedies? Yes, absolutely. But, like a murder victim being used as an organ donor, good can come from moral evil. I want to say that if abortion was required to continue the practices we have now I would probably find it harder to pursue these vaccines on moral grounds. However, if this tragedy is not repeated, and can be roundly condemned but still used, like the unethical experiments in WW2 that have since been used in medicine, then I can sleep at night soundly knowing that at least some good came out of the ending of this poor persons life.
Romans 8:28 says "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." This does not mean the events themselves are good, but rather they work together for good. I believe this is one of those cases, as the tragedy is passed and not repeated, and we are not furthering any immorality by partaking in these vaccines.
I long for the day when lab-grown cells can replace the cells used now, but until then, I think it is morally acceptable to use what we have now.
Also, if you are still hesitant, please see this article:
And this sheet:
to find covid vaccines that are morally clear in your eyes. As time goes on and choice widens I believe this objection will become less relevant in decisions relating to vaccinating vs. not vaccinating.
PS: I am scheduled to receive the Pfizer vaccine if you are curious.
