Social Conservatives: GOP Can't Live Without Them

One of the things I've noticed is that social conservatives and traditional values are bashed for being "religiously based" and thus non-scientific at best and ignorant superstitions at worst. When in actuality traditional values have been proven time and again to be the most beneficial way for an individual to live. The left advocates unfettered hedonism. We know it doesn't work. What we need to do is make the reality based case that hedonism doesn't work and that "traditional"/christian/normal values do.

HISTORY has shown that conservative traditional values are the most beneficial for any Nation to prosper and grow... What we are seeing and currently witnessing is America making a complete 180 degree turn from its founding principles and reaping the consequences. America has denied what its spiritual founding fathers fought for and willingly died for. In its place, a substituted pathetic imitation. Our “Founding Fathers” proclaimed that America set people free from tyranny.

Question: Are YOU one of the privileged FEW?

One of the Founders did say that our form of government would only work for a moral and religious people and I think we are seeing the truth of that statement.

The TRUTH...Those "VALUES" are no longer taught in the schools, churches, or in our homes; and is reflective in our civil/social discourses.
One of the largest elephants in the GOP's post-election room is the fate of Christian and other social conservatives. Party honchos can't just wish this problem away -- or, maybe they can.

There has been increasing hostility toward Christian involvement in politics, and the animus hasn't been solely from the left. To be sure, Democrats have taken the lead, demonizing conservative Christians as science-challenged scolds who don't care about women's "reproductive rights," but there is plenty of antipathy from certain elements within the Republican Party, as well.

Many establishment and some libertarian Republicans have long looked upon Christian conservatives with mild, condescending...
