The High Road Led Straight to Defeat for Romney

It may be that Romney took the high-road and lost.... or did he? That depends on what standard you are judging him. In God's eyes Romney may be the winner, and Obama the loser! What one does through-out life decides where that person spends Eternity. And, Eternity is a verrrry loooong time compared to the miniscule time we spend here on Earth!

If Election Day is about picking winners, the morning after is for post-mortems. That's when we slice open the losing campaigns, set aside the hundreds of millions of dollars that gush out, and pick apart the cause of death.

Why did the Romney campaign fail? Maybe the country is now GOP-proof. That is, maybe a Constitution-guided, free-market, limited-government candidate no longer can "appeal" to the majority of the electorate. It could be that the death knell rang early this year once 67.3 million of us, or one in five Americans, had come to depend on federal assistance, formerly known as "the dole."
