Reading these comments from what Ann calls purists is exactly why she is so right. Until we play the game and decide to win, we will always lose. A house divided cannot win. Talk of third parties and electing conservative purists as president, is what will kill this country.
We can't expect to wake up in the middle of the race and start at the finish line.
If you look at where we are as a whole, constitutional conservatives now control many state and local legislations and governor positions. We need to continue to build from there, not go off on a purist tangent. Ann is exactly correct. It is time to come together, not drift apart.
