We all keep saying that we want a "true" conservative, and I agree. However, will a true conservative have a chance of getting votes from minorities and liberals? This last election showed that the majority of voters want bigger government and free stuff. Romney may not have been a true conservative, but he Obama is the complete opposite of conservative, and he got reelected for that purpose. A true conservative will make us conservatives happy, but I'm not sure that he or she can be elected in this day in age. We don't have the same kind of voters that we had way back when Carter was replaced by Reagan. Obama would never have been given a second term back in the 80's, and Romney would never have lost.
