Time for Introspection, but Not Surrender

Thank you for what I believe has been the most comprehensive piece on why the election was lost. It's not merely because of one factor; it's the culmination of several. We can't hope to win future elections by putting all our eggs in one basket. I do think, however, that a major factor in spreading the ideas of true conservatism absolutely HAS to begin with education. Our young people - even ones raised in conservative homes - are getting hammered by the liberal mindset in our nations' schools. We must teach them about the history and ideals of our founding. If all they hear is about Heather's 2 mommies, we can't begin to hope that true understanding of conservatism will prevail.

We do need "All of our eggs in one basket". First we have to get rid of the rotten eggs like Karl Rove, Ann Coulter, Chris Christie, Romney, and a whole lot more. The GOP needs a cleansing, and then be reclaimed by true conservatives. A third party is a "pipe dream".

Just another pathetic triviality. This has NOTHING to do with it. But you have heard it repeated so often you think its true.

PrayerPoseMom is absolutely right. Get your babies out of the government schools now.

For those who embrace the idea that homosexuality going main-stream is a wonderful idea have not read history. Each and every great civilization that has fallen began the fall with government handouts and the debauchery of homosexual behavior being tolerated, and the worship of some god other than The Creator, and the following of His law.

No, I've actually seen it in practice. So many kids of friends, and even my own child to a degree, are going away to college and disavowing everything they've been taught for the last 18 or so years. Even though I believe it's the norm to question a parent's values as one becomes more independent, I've seen kids have buy into the idea that hard work, family, and religion are "old hat" nowadays, and "do what feels good" has taken hold. Feeling that value and purpose of working hard has slowly eroded. I wasn't specifically talking about homosexuality before; I just meant that what kids are being taught is virtually pablum anymore. My own son, who is a business major, is required to take "Diversity Issues in the Workplace."

I was also a business major, but was required to take accounting, finance, statistics, marketing, etc... I believe kids will come out of school knowing how to get along in the workplace and real world, but not be able to function in it effectively.

Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney's presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation's re-election of a president with the worst record in decades?

 

I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates' respective positions after the presidential debates.

My first reaction after...
