I DON'T FALL IN LOVE with politicians – the last presidential candidate I voted for with ardor was Ronald Reagan in 1980 – and my heart doesn't break when those I support don't win. Nor am I a party loyalist. As a conservative I vote for Republicans more often than not; for those of us committed to free enterprise, limited government, military strength, and a healthy civil society, there is usually no better option. But the Republican Party isn't the conservative movement. And a GOP defeat doesn't mean conservatism – or the GOP, for that matter – is in crisis....
There is no place for a Conservative to turn to today. There are plenty of them out there but none of our current Political Parties are worth the powder it would take to blow them away. The Democrats are so far left/Liberal they would probably love a chance to elect Lenin. The Republicans are so far "Centrist" that they are Left of center. Political Will and Political Integrity have been abandoned in the rush to embrace Political Correctness and Sensitivity. Conservatives looked at both candidates for President and figured there was no point in engaging. I voted for McCain (unwillingly but no option) & Mitt in despair (the same scenario) and people accuse me of being a Republican. People suggest that I should vote Libertarian :(
