Money was not the issue. The other candidates in the field were very weak overall. Romney won this by default. He would have won with a shoestring budget. Romney could have had twice the money he had and he would have gotten waxed if a true conservative had been in the race. Unfortunately, there was no such candidate this time around. Our goal needs to be continuing to place conservatives in the State Houses and Governor mansions throughout this country. We continue to do this and there will come a time when they will make the changes occur that get us back to our Constitutional principles. Until that occurs, we are wasting our time thinking Washington insiders (GOP or DEM) will fix our problems. They are incapable of doing so.
