Dear David. You wrote "Conservative ideas -- our founding principles -- are still salable". This is the main problem! The old capitalist model serves the elites. Most people benefit more from food stamps and Obama phones than helping the wealthy get wealthier. Republicans need to fix the old capitalist model to vastly expand the opportunities for the poor and middle classes to create wealth through their own efforts rather than through socialist redistribution policies. The changes needed to update capitalism for the 21st century are not difficult and don't cost a dime. Face the issue and republicans can find a solution that works for all races and genders.

Where do you find honest leaders in government.

OBAMA is the biggest fascist this country has ever witnessed.

They do. It's called jobs. Problem is, most Democrat voters are old socialists or minorities that have been bought and paid for through generational food stamps and entitlements. These people live in cloistered environments where they refuse to improve their own situation, allowing the Democrats to exploit their ignorance with promises that will never be fulfilled. Once those promises begin to come to fruition, these people will no longer have an incentive to vote for the Gibmuh Party.

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...
