Before We Give Up, Could We At Least Try Selling Our Ideas?

Politicians, both republican and democrat, keep talking about a "Path to Citizenship" for them. Have you ever actually TALKED to any of our Mexican friends? My buddy, Enrique (who has shown me his green card (which is actually pink)), says they don't want to be citizens. They can work here for 5 years, and save enough money to go home and live like kings for the rest of their lives.
We conservatives may never reach a consensus among ourselves as to the main factors that caused our election defeat, but surely we can agree that we must do a better job of selling our ideas.

Never mind, you say. The electorate has irreversibly become a taker class, and conservative ideas of self-reliance, personal responsibility and individual liberties will never appeal to a majority again, especially with demographics working against the GOP.

We must reject that, or we are as good as surrendering. To accept it, we are confessing our skepticism of the power of ideas, which itself is contrary to the conservative spirit.
