bcordon, In the recent election we faced the most obvious and definitive test of conservatism vs. socialism the nation has ever seen. Yet even that spectacle did not turn out enough conservatives to defeat BO & Pals. One must conclude that there are indeed not enough conservatives to win an election, or that many conservatives cannot be troubled to vote.
The rest of us voters who do not want to repeat the tragedy of socialism are looking for a coalition that can defeat the Low-Information Voters. I've heard no realistic ideas competing with the concept of the R's easing up on the social dogma that alienates so many independents and libertarians, the only two groups smart enough to figure out how to defeat the growing ranks of LIV's.
