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

Hear, hear. Democrats have been able to frame the conversation to portray Republicans/Conservatives in a negative light. We need to do a better job of salesmanship.

Expose Democrats like Anthony's Wiener. We have a new media that is steadily taking over. We need to take the schools in every community. Exposing the commie curriculum and the teacher's indoctrination of our children.

This is going to take time.

We need to get hold of the major media. Enough Reps. wealthies should be able to buy up the NYTimes Mex. debt and driive it into bankruptcy.
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.
