Your argument is very reminiscent of the perpetual argument against 3rd parties: we can’t support a third party because we have to give the gop just one more chance. But some day in the ill-defined future date, we’ll try something different. And that ill-define future date never comes.
This was not just an election defeat, it was a repudiation of the values that we as conservatives hold dear. The choice couldn’t have been much more stark. I am no great fan of Gov. Romney, but to his credit I don’t see anyone else who could have done any better. Yes, he is a lot further left than I like but given the choice between radical socialism and a sort of liberal moderate conservatism, the people picked radical socialism. And it wasn’t even close.
At a certain point you realize that Ronald Reagan is not coming through that door on his charging steed.
Oh and one further point. While we sit around and lick our wounds and debate trying the same thing for the umpteenth time, the other side works to consolidate it’s victory. Immigration reform is the next item on their agenda. They know demographics is destiny.
Maybe not. But let's try a real conservative next time. If he or she loses, lets offer the socialists a deal: they get one half of the country, we get the other. We go our separate ways.
