What is your evidence of that? I have always been a conservative but one thing that I have noted is that we are always making assertions or drawing conclusions that we state and yet do not provide evidence to support these assertions. People have stopped believing us because we never explain to them why we are saying what we do. For example, Romney's plan to eliminate loopholes suffered from his refusal to explain what the cuts were or how they would solve problems. We have to start being logical and engage in critical thinking.
