Excellent! Good to see some encouraging views. We need them, right now. Our republic is in danger the likes of which we have never seen before.

John McCain memorably called himself “a foot soldier in the Reagan revolution.” I count myself as a foot soldier, too. I have walked precincts in every election, save one, since 1968. And, as an historical researcher, I have studied every presidential election since 1788. In the last six months of this election year, I logged some 13,341 miles on the Family Research Council-Heritage Foundation’s “Values Bus” to some 40 cities and towns in eight states. Campaigning at the grassroots level, you learn stuff.

Many people today are saying conservatives must give up their core beliefs if they want to win elections...
