Liberals have patiently waited us out, taken small victories here and there, eventually building on the decline of the nation's culture and economy (no accidents). The payoff resulting from awful public schools, rampant immorailty, blurring of standards, etc. is now coming. Those opposed to the far left (not just conservatives) must be smarter, more tenacious, more determned, more energized (that was indicated, but was FAR from the truth this time) and willing to occassional losses and smaller victories as long as the ultimate goal is kept in mind and we stay on track. If that fails, then we need to seriously consider purchasing one of the "red" states outright and divorcing ourselves from the scurge of liberalism.
