Before We Give Up, Could We At Least Try Selling Our Ideas?

Reality is a terrible thing. Just for fun----- does David or anyone reading this article know anyone who makes 380.00 a week take-home trying to raise two children? If the answer is NO....then this group has a problem. Ron

The answer to that used to be upward mobility. Democrats don't believe in upward mobility because they are racists and because the leadership of the party is already very rich and doesn't want competition at the top. How many people on welfare have used the freedom that regular check has given them to better themselves, study something, train for a job? Almost none. Why? They aren't accountable for their behavior, are fed lies, discouraged from making effort, "acting white"

Why does somebody who only makes 380 a week have two children? Who do they expect to raise their kids?
We conservatives may never reach a consensus among ourselves as to the main factors that caused our election defeat, but surely we can agree that we must do a better job of selling our ideas.

Never mind, you say. The electorate has irreversibly become a taker class, and conservative ideas of self-reliance, personal responsibility and individual liberties will never appeal to a majority again, especially with demographics working against the GOP.

We must reject that, or we are as good as surrendering. To accept it, we are confessing our skepticism of the power of ideas, which itself is contrary to the conservative spirit.
