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

Interestingly enough many super rich donated to keep Obama in office. Pelosi is quite wealthy, and did some crony stock market insider trading. One wonders where they will move, or where they will shelter their wealth, as they get what they are working for. The typical behavior in Socialist or Marxist Countries is to do what people do in the unions. They cozy up to the boss and speak the party line and are protected. If Socialism and Marxism worked out, we would never have hordes of people coming here, legally or illegally.
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.
