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....
When things are good, people what status quo. When bad, they want change. For 70 years, progressivism has been increasing its foothold in this country to the point it now controls our economics, education, and political systems. With that, those entities are also failing miserably and the people will eventually not tolerate it any longer. It may be 5 years, 20, or 40 years in the future when the country as a whole begins to realign itself away from big government and towards smaller government and individualism. Unfortunately, for business owners as myself, we need to outlast the current cycle.
