Many Republicans have been insisting on a conservative candidate. But all we have been able to nominate is "progressive-light." What is the value of fielding a candidate if all we can offer is an Equate brand? In either circumstance, our doom is sure. It is simply a matter of which election cycle. But this we know for sure, Republican moderates do not fight in debate and do not win at the polls. If we are going to lose, why not be able to say that we stood up for what was right, good and proper?
