Amen and Amen. The progressive/communists made use of the existing establishments to overtake and then indoctrinate. If conservatives do not take a long-term view, as in "how do we grow our influence in these areas" the cancer will continue to spread. This election also validates the maxim, "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Well, good men have done nothing for too long.
It was only 7:15 last Tuesday evening when my daughter, who works in conservative journalism, texted me to say the election was lost. For a painful four hours, I watched the results confirm her early analysis. When it was clear the president would be re-elected and Republican challenger Mitt Romney had lost, I took an over-the-counter sleep aid and went to bed.

On Wednesday, I began a weeklong home improvement bender, drowning my sorrows in a five-gallon bucket of latex paint the color of vanilla creme. But there was no painting over my pessimism about the future.
