It is interesting to note that the "true conservatives" in this comment forum avoid the critical point of the article-the election losses of some very good conservative candidates. If a political/governing philosophy is good for a nation, it must win elections. I await the explanation from the true conservatives as to how those election losses move their agenda forward- are you really content to watch the greatest nation in history collapse on the hope that the people in the end will blame the DEMOCRATS?

The truth is, it was not the time for a republican win. The republicans did not want to win or they would have. The time now is to find out whether the public is going to succumb to communism or finally be able to shake it off and use their minds. so far this has not happened. if the people want to be cast into slavery and live in sloth and ignorance, who are the Republicans to try to change their minds. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

Exactly this.

Running a moderate liberal and calling them "true conservative" is not good enough. The GOP either runs fiscally conservative candidates and avoid the toxic social engineering issues, or we continue to lose elections.

Every Republican knows another Republican who agrees with them on 99% of the issues, yet will attack them relentlessly over the 1% of issues they disagree upon. Instead of uniting against the left, these busybodies waste countless hours criticizing other Republicans. They will frequently do it under the ruse of being the “true conservatives,” claiming that anyone who does not agree with them is not conservative enough. Yet the 1% of issues they disagree with others on are often arbitrarily decided and not legitimate issues. Mitt Romney was criticized for being too moderate of a Republican presidential candidate, yet he ran...
