Principled Leadership

We do not believe America should equate a disappointing loss in the Presidential campaign to a rejection of conservative ideals.  The election results are certainly not a rejection of the GOP, since they still retain a majority in the House.  Much ink will be spilled second-guessing the Romney-Ryan campaign.

At the end of the day, we must realize that the conservative base is guilty of allowing the GOP primary to carry on too long.  That greatly benefitted the Obama campaign and allowed them to define Mitt Romney in a very unflattering and unfair light.  Instead of the election being decided upon competing ideas, the GOP allowed the Democrats to put personal economic success on trial.  Any candidate “guilty” of succeeding in business or parallel pursuit was smeared by their opponent and prevented from keeping the topic of discussion on ideas.

The GOP doesn’t need to support big government, higher taxes, legalization of illicit drugs, gay marriage and abortion to win another national election.  That’s simply a distortion generated by the left to perpetuate their ideals.  Those ideals are not what America great, and will not get America back on track economically.  Those ideals will not resolve the ideological divide that separates those that earn their income from businesses versus those that earn their income from the government.    Let’s get back to our root principles of smaller government, personal responsibility and entrepreneurship.  Those principles were not rejected by the American people on November 6, 2012.  Rather, they were concealed by a cunning campaign and a complicit media.
