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....
This is precisely why I tirelessly promote the idea of the Conservative party. True social and fiscal conservatives don't want to be lumped in with establishment, weak-kneed RINOs. We need to put forth our own party, so to offer up candidates with the values we believe in. We can spread our message through the conservatives we have in office now, and grow our population with those looking for a way out of the wilderness. We DO have a future.
