This election was the first un-American election for it was coerced and stollen therefore it wasn't free. This was an election a la South-American banana republic. I agree that Conservatism is not dead but is moribund. It will never revive without somehow reforming the education system. The election was determined by demographics but not in the ethnic/racial sense although it appears that way. The balance between "takers" and "givers" tipped the scale.
