First, Mr. Mitchell, Is there such a thing as them? When American conservatives invoke "them" only two them(s) exist. One is the observer "them". Two, is the hinderer" them". Leading, contributing, and participating those three always nullify the observer and hinderer.
The other word is "they". American conservatives are wrapped in "they". Why do conservative react and respond to "they"? Has the Ronald Reagan Conservatives had a mission or goal which lasted more than a month or two. Have the conservatives had a mission or goal which could be measured and achieve. Has conservatives had a leader for more than a season?
