We’re losing elections, anyway! Even when we “win,” we lose, by governing like a bunch of RINOs, instead of as conservatives. Every election cycle it’s the same thing. If social conservatives don’t set aside their principles and cast their ballot for whoever the GOP Establishment dishes up, it will be their fault the liberal wins.
Meanwhile, the issues important to those of us who are social conservatives keep getting paid lip service, at best, campaign after campaign. Sorry, can’t do it anymore. If the Republican establishment doesn’t care about what is important to me, then don’t come asking for my money or my vote.
You are 100% correct.
I don’t disagree, but are you really going to “teach them a lesson” by staying home?
If they were going to learn that lesson, they would have learned it in 2008, wouldn’t they?
