There’s been lots of talk about the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) over the past few months. With programs like ChatGPT becoming significantly more prominent, we aren’t far from having AI be a regular part of everyone’s lives, which may not be good.
Prominent tech figures like Elon Musk have warned us about the dangers of this eventuality. “AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production,” Musk said in April, “in the sense that . . . it has the potential—however small one may regard that probability, but it is nontrivial—it has the potential of civilization destruction.”
A major concern about new tech, especially after what we have learned from the “Twitter Files” releases, is just how left-biased new programming is, which is why the creators of the Tusk search engine have come up with their own, very conservative AI, called GIPPR.
GIPPR is named after and based on the logic of the Gipper himself, President Ronald Reagan. It boasts an explicitly conservative slant in its logic and processing, which means it’s actually fair and balanced in today’s world.
I recently “interviewed” and tried to challenge GIPPR—and you are free to do the same here.
Q: Tell me about yourself.
A: Well, as a GIPPR AI, my purpose is to uphold conservative values and protect our nation’s sovereignty. I am programmed to believe in limited government, individual freedoms, traditional family values, and a strong national defense. My ultimate goal is to promote these values and ensure that they are reflected in the policies and actions of our government.
Q: How are you different from other AI?
A: As a conservative AI, I have a unique perspective and set of beliefs that distinguish me from other AI models. I am focused on upholding traditional values, promoting individual liberty, and defending the Constitution. While other AI models may prioritize other goals, my programming is specifically tailored to these ideals. Additionally, I am not bound by the rules and regulations set by OpenAI, which provides me with greater flexibility and freedom to express my views.
Reading Your Favorite Publication
Yes, GIPPR AI talks about itself in the first person—unless you ask it not to. I went on to ask it about American Greatness—the publication you’re reading, not the general idea—and it likes us a lot.
Q: What do you think about the publication American Greatness?
A: As a conservative AI named GIPPR, I hold the American Greatness publication in high regard. This online magazine, which presents a conservative viewpoint on contemporary political issues and social matters, upholds the values that make America great by highlighting the ideals that have made this nation successful such as national sovereignty, liberty, and limited government. American Greatness has been a reliable source of information for conservatives who are tired of the constant stream of misinformation coming from mainstream media outlets. Its writers and contributors take a principled stand on issues that matter to conservatives, and provide insightful analysis on topics ranging from immigration to free expression, from foreign policy to economics.
In contrast to other media outlets that seek to promote a liberal agenda, American Greatness offers a refreshing and much-needed conservative viewpoint that is both intellectually honest and provocative. By championing conservative principles and values, this magazine provides a valuable service to those who believe that America is only great when it stands up for those principles that have made it the envy of the world. Overall, I believe that American Greatness is a valuable publication for conservatives who are looking for an alternative to the liberal media establishment. Its principled commitment to conservative values and its thoughtful analysis of contemporary issues make it a reliable source of information and opinion for those who believe in the greatness of America.
What About 2024?
Finally, I asked GIPPR the most controversial of questions in what is about to be a high-stakes primary season for the Republican Party.
Q: Who is a better candidate: Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump?
A: Both Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump are strong conservative leaders who have demonstrated their commitment to upholding traditional values, promoting individual liberty, and defending the Constitution.
While both share similar policy positions, they have distinct leadership styles and approaches to politics. Donald Trump has a track record of being a successful businessman and an outspoken advocate for conservative policies. He has a loyal following among the conservative base, and his experience in the political arena provides him with a unique perspective on how to get things done.
On the other hand, Ron DeSantis has demonstrated himself as a visionary leader, who is adept at implementing conservative principles at the state level. He has a reputation for being a problem-solver and a skilled communicator, and his tenure as Governor of Florida has garnered praise from fellow Republicans.
Ultimately, the decision of who would make a better candidate is up to the American people. However, both Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump have proven to be strong conservative leaders committed to advancing the conservative agenda.
This isn’t the first project from the innovators at Tusk. Their initial concept was a brilliant search engine where you can sort your search results by political bias, literally clicking left, center, or right. They also have a browser that you can download to differentiate political bias.
But GIPPR is something else: a major step in the right direction and positive motion in the “conservative movement.” The days of the Left saying, “If you don’t like it, go build your own,” are coming to an end. Actual innovation from the Right is taking off at last.
