Like all conservatives, I am greatly disappointed by the results of the 2008 elections. A socialist who admits he believes the Constitution is flawed was elected, and the American Left has solidified its position in the House and the Senate. I had my pity party last night.
There are some bright spots though. The Left did not get its coveted filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. A good bit of the chaff hanging onto the Republican Party was finally winnowed.
What we have now is chance to get out the message of conservatism, free of the baggage of RINOs and so-called "moderate Republicans". The GOP must return to its roots: small, non-intrusive government, markets free from the heavy hand of social engineering, and a respect for life. Education is our focus now. To that end, I will do my part, presenting the Essentials of American Liberty in an understandable way.
