Everything -- Everything -- hinges on Social Conservative values.

Honesty, thrift, hard-work, stable families, and morality are all Conservative Social Values.

If you want people to behave better, if you want society to be more civil, if you want the next generation to be above the level of animals, then you want to promote Social Conservatism.

If you want a strong economy, if you want people with sound educations, good work ethic, and an entrepreneurial spirit, then you want to promote Social Conservatism.

Jobs? The Economy? Freedom? Morality? You can solve any problem you want if you bring back Social Conservatism. But a lot of people, even on this site, want to put Social Conservatism on a back burner and emphasize something else because that "something else" seems to offer more immediate value. Well ... instant gratification is not a Socially Conservative value.

"Everything -- Everything -- hinges on Social Conservative values."

This is what Santorum's campaign was about. And why it resonated w/ so many.

It's unfortunate that he doesn't have the agility to keep his balance in a strong headwind.

Perhaps you give them too much credit. Some on what is called ‘the right’ would like to extinguish a conservative society altogether, no less than the left. They just want the accounts to balance in a kinder, gentler Bedlam.
