Back Away From the Ledge

I know that we lost, but please don’t jump just yet. I have to say I was a little down this morning, but I like you was lifted from my despair by Jamie this morning. We cannot give up the fight. It sucks to lose, and let’s be honest the sting burns, but we cannot give up because we truly are the better party when it comes to ideas. I think if anything we have learned a lot from this election. We need to be better at messaging and reaching the people. If Obama can win with all his class warfare and negativity, then we need to look at how we reach people.
Listen to what Krauthammer said in the clip, there is a bright future. We just need to not mess it up. No more acting like the media is our friend. If we are going to get the message out, we need to be clear and concise, no more getting caught in the weeds over social issues. Also, Jamie brought up the point that in Ohio Libertarian Gary Johnson had 5 percent of the vote. The numbers for Romney were 47% Obama and 44% Romney. We need to find a way to get back to our roots so we can reclaim those fiscal conservatives.
Everyone for the past how many years has been talking about Reagan, we don’t need a Reagan, but we do need to learn what made him and many of the other conservatives that have won in this election successful. They spoke the truth about the message and they never wavered. Let’s clean house, if we have some people that don’t want to stand on fiscal conservative principles time to vote them out. Let’s get back to our message.
Take heart friends, this is going to be a battle for sure, but we can do this. We can get rid of this growing religion of worshipping the government, but it is going to take all of us. It is going to take us all getting involved, not sitting on the sidelines, but actually paying attention and understanding the issues. Let’s do this, because if we don’t then we definitely will lose our country.
