Conservatives and ChatGPT

As technology continues to shape the way we communicate and share information, conservatives have a huge opportunity to leverage AI tools like ChatGPT to grow the conservative movement and spread our message more effectively. Using the Artificial Intelligence (AI) language model, conservatives can generate high-quality content, engage with audiences, and gain insights into public opinion on key issues. This technology can help conservatives reach new audiences, build stronger relationships with existing supporters, and ultimately drive growth for the conservative movement.

With its ability to process vast amounts of information and generate nuanced responses, ChatGPT offers a powerful tool for conservatives looking to make an impact in today’s rapidly changing digital landscape. In my own use over the last few weeks, I almost feel like OpenAI’s chat bot has become a new “best friend”, helping me with some mundane tasks and with more complex tasks.

If you haven’t used it, click this link to and create an account. Then simply chat with the AI as if you were talking to another human… The chat AI will respond in full sentences, and seems to be very conversant. I usually start a chat with a simple question, “Are you up?” to which I’ve seen several different answers including:

Yes, I am currently operational and ready to assist you with any questions or information you need. How can I help you today?

My next question/statement could be something really simple like “Tell me about the play ‘Cats“. Unlike Google, which just produces a list of websites, ChatGPT responds with a rather lengthy description in plain English. I could then ask a more complex question like, “What famous actors got their start in it?” (Notice, I didn’t need to use the name “Cats” again.) The response is pretty quick and amazingly detailed:

Benny Hill and Elaine Paige both got their start in the original 1981 London production of “Cats.” Other actors who got their start in “Cats” include Judi Dench, Sarah Brightman, and Steve Barton.

It’s almost like talking with a human…

But OpenAI’s ChatGPT is not for simple questions like above. You can ask it to compare and contrast very complex issues, and you’ll get a great response every time. “Compare and contrast neoconservatism and classic or traditional conservatism.” The response?

Neoconservatism and traditional conservatism differ in their views on foreign policy, social issues, and the role of government.

Neoconservatism emphasizes a proactive, interventionist foreign policy, while traditional conservatism prioritizes a non-interventionalist approach and a strong national defense. On social issues, neoconservatives tend to be more liberal, supporting interventionist policies and social programs, while traditional conservatives prioritize limited government and individual liberty.

In terms of the role of government, neoconservatives support a strong, active government to achieve their goals, while traditional conservatives believe in limited government and emphasize individual responsibility and market solutions.

Overall, while both ideologies are rooted in a belief in limited government and individual liberty, they differ in their approach to achieving these goals and their priorities in policy making.

Now, imagine if that ability were built into a conservative organization’s website to answer questions from people interested in conservatism or those looking to advance the movement.

The above examples are child’s play for ChatGPT. A friend of mine asked it to solve a problem from a textbook about astronomic sciences, and the resulting reply was correct according to the textbook.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT project does have one shortfall that has bothered me as I’ve learned to use it. Apparently its dataset only includes data up to 2021. So, asking it to help understand current events could be a problem. You can’t ask it, for instance, “How much cash has the United States sent to Ukraine during the war?” It also has limitations in mathematical questions, as long as you can keep the equation in text only.

What do you think? Give a shot, and see if you believe it is a game changer that could definitely find uses in the conservative movement. Drop me a line in the Reply section below and let me know what you think.
