For those who think the "conservative base" can create a paradigm shift in the direction of the country, dream on. The term conservative stands for nothing. Ask ten conservatives to list 5 unalienable rights and you will get wildly different and confused answers. Conservatives cannot even agree on a definition of conservatism.
To win the battle for America we must recruit conservatives to the cause of liberty for all. If allowed to lead, conservatives will head directly up a blind alley. At the end of that alley is another determined loser, ala Dole, McCain, Romney, perhaps a confirmed mental midget like Santorum, or another, God forbid, big government Bush.
Wake up! Conservatives are natural followers, but can't lead a cheer.
