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

Mr. Limbaugh, you are making the mistake of accepting the lie that our republic is a democracy, and all it takes is a good sales job to work successfully within that system. Until the system is changed back, America will continue its decline. "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."-- John Adams God save our not-a-democracy republic and our not-a-living-document Constitution from the not-liberal and not-progressive Regressives.
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.
