>> I think picking someone “electable” has set back the small government conservative movement back at least 40 years.
So running someone that was not “electable” would’ve been better? I believe we’d be coming up on the end of President Al Gore’s 2nd term now, had we chosen an unelectable candidate.
How, exactly, would that be a step FORWARD for small government conservatives?
When a party receives the conservative vote regardless of the candidate, do you think that makes it more or less likely that the party will run a genuine small government conservative?
