Excellent article ... I'd like the find Cruz's initial article that I assume explains this more fully. But this is to right, conservatives lost this election not because we had a bad candidate (Romney was exactly the right person to get our country out of this financial meltdown), but because Republicans have yet to object to Democratic labeling of all conservatives as greedy and hateful and because the conservative message was convoluted and weak. The concepts of personal responsibility, ownership, and choice are fundamental American opportunities. How this could be hidden and not waved proudly as a banner is a mystery to most of us. Epic fail, folks. Let's fix it.
